I apologize for the short review. Everyone has their own style of writing. I might obtain and utilize different tips than someone else might by reading this book. Instead of going into extreme detail I will just lightly touch base on what this book is about. That way you can read it with out me having spoiled the book for you :-)
I like to express my thoughts and opinions, this is why I am a blogger. As you can see by my other reviews, I love to read books. Even though I may write, I have never really had the skill to tackle a book. I tried at one point and all I got was ideas, characters, and a really badly started storyline! I was intrigued when i saw this book. Maybe I could write a semi decent short story if I read up a little and learned some things. Halloween is around the corner , so I figured what better time to read this than now.
This book has 20 chapters packed full of content to help you write a "dark story". It begins with explaining the three different types of dark stories. Next it explains how you can use your own fears to use in the story.
Thinking about it, I agree with him. When you are truly afraid of something people tend to describe in great detail and sometimes even over exaggerate the situation. The author goes in to detail about scary or dangerous places , weird shudders, phobias, childhood fears, dreams, human attitudes, ordinary things and how they can work in your dark story. There is so much good information packed in this book, I could probably write a book just explaining this book! (HAHA!) But since my goal is to get you to read this book I will stop here! (Sorry!!)
From why a good title is crucial to how to open your story and how to end your story, there is so much great information packed in this short book. I really enjoyed reading this book and learned a lot from reading it. Once I have a little time on my hands, I might try writing my own "dark story".
