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?
