"Boo!"
Did that scare you?

Of course not. You would no more present that word as an effective piece of horror than write: "The child opened the wardrobe door. A monster jumped out and frightened her."

Horror is about atmosphere. It’s the sneaking sensation of being watched, the sudden chill of the graveyard; creatures scuttling unseen. What is suggested is often more powerful than what stares you in the face, unless it’s someone else’s reflection gazing back or none at all. Come along to the Writing a Horror Story Workshop to find out how to write the perfect Horror Story that goes “Boo!”
