How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I think many years ago H.P. Lovecraft summed it up best with this quote. “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”
With the horror and thriller genres you can give the reader a wide variety of emotions. There is no shortage of things people are afraid off.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
The same advice I always receive. First and foremost read all that you can, and write as much as possible. Do not expect to be the next big name on the New York Times Bestseller list it probably will not happen and you will set yourself up for failure. Start by submitting shorter stories to magazines especially ones that welcome unknown writers. Also self-publishing is a great option, you can publish on the Kindle for free. (If you edit, format, and create the cover art yourself.)
