My political satire is a mash-up with fairy tale/fantasy.

Shocked


And it works.

My horror has one foot in suspense, sometimes both.

You guys just co-wrote "Alien" (1979).

I'm getting strong "The Player" vibes from you today.

It's like Pretty Woman meets Predator, but with cats.

This is my first time with NYC Midnight and I am so relieved to read your comment, my Suspense story definitely has a whopping amount of the Thriller/Horror genre in there!
It's definitely a suspenseful story, but I'm concerned re what exactly entails the Suspense genre... based on the website's genre definitions I'm hoping I'm ok ConfusedWink

Fingers crossed for us both!

This is the major writing revelation I had this Flash Fiction - everything I do turns to horror - and I need to try work with that more.

The only thing that saved my fantasy piece (from this at least) was that the word count made me cut out the giant mine monster ;)


I'm curious about the childhood you people had.  Just wondering..... it might make a great flash piece - writer with an unusual childhood can't stop writing horror stories.

And my horror leans toward dark comedy, not sure it's horrible enough. 

But I know all about that judge you mentioned.  I had him/her  or should I say, "IT," for SSC.  Talk about horror! We had differing opinions about what constitutes Political Satire. 

Sigh.  

But onward!!!
