It sure has been a while

This past summer turned out pretty crappy.  I don’t know why, but every time I make plans for an awesome season they end up in the garbage.  Much to my own disappointment, I didn’t get a whole lot of writing done.  However, I have had a bunch of spiritual awakenings, so I can’t honestly say the summer has been a complete wash.  Getting back into having a relationship with God has been amazing, and I only wished I had done it sooner.  I allowed life to get the better of me, made some bad decisions, and sank into a deep depression, but all that is done now.  New chances and new choices are ahead of me.

With that being said, I feel led to take my writing in a new direction.  I’m still going to write horror, but it will have a godly spin on it.  How am I going to do that?  I really don’t know, but I have some decent ideas.  Many will say that there is no room in Christianity for horror, but I disagree.  The Bible itself is full of stories of horror.  I want my writing to reflect a spirit of redemption, and I’m definitely not going to water down the gore (I promise!).  🙂

Will I get ridiculed for writing such stories?  Sure.  Why not.  But I honestly don’t care.  People write from the heart all the time.  Why should I be any different?
