Think of something you wouldn't want anyone to do to you or a family remember. Remember there's nothing too gruesome in horror!

ok but seriously
fear is hard to capture in words
people aren't gonna be scared of a short story about a killer or ghost
but theres something most people fear
The Unknown

Everyone fears the unknown.

People don’t know what comes after death, so they get scared. See More▼

When writing in general it's good to try and absorb the writting styles of your favorate authors. See how they word things and describe the scene and emotions that way you are able to develope your own writing style. As for horror writting I would say it's best to write in first person so the character is more in the moment so their emotions can be fresh. Also ending the chapters with cliff hangers and suspense keeps the reader engaged. To make the story more well thought through See More▼
