    Hello all :)

    New to the forum and relatively new to writing too! Been writing short stories for a while and really into exploring and delving into the horror genre a bit more.

    Anyway, here to pick up advice and also weigh in on other discussions. Hope to contribute to this great community - long time lurker here!

    All the best,

    Hello and welcome! I am new too . I am currently reading Stephen Kings book "on Writing." It's great and it made me think of him when you mentioned a horror genre.

    Hey, Jay. I lurk more than post, as well.

    I also like horror. Long ago and far away, I once wrote and published for grad school an anthology of twelve sci-fi and horror shorts. I'm working in mystery novels at present, but miss the horror writing a great deal.

    Hey there Mr. Ted!

    I know someone mentioned Stephen King up there. I was a huge Stephen King fan for years. I heard his Dark Tower series was really good, and they recently made it into a movie. Have you by any chance read it? Or has anyone on here? I am curious about it, and I am thinking of borrowing it at my local library. (Yes I have a library card and I still go to the library thank you very much!)

    But welcome again, as a fellow newbie, I am really liking what I am seeing so far on this site.
