The flip side? I'm hanging out in my creepy little worlds longer than usual.
The air conditioning runs, but it's ghostly breath that prickles my skin. Beneath the rustling of palm fronds, characters whisper, frantic, fearful for their lives. During summer storms, lightning shoots across the sky, pinning hulking and misshapen shadows against the blinds.
But when I came across this quote from James M. Cain, I realized it's all for a good cause:
"IF YOUR WRITING
DOESN'T KEEP YOU UP AT NIGHT,
IT WON'T KEEP ANYONE ELSE UP EITHER."
Ah, I suffer so my readers will, too!
What was the last creepy thing you wrote or read or watched that stayed with you? What was it about that particular thing that made it stick with you?
