Collection of Horror Stories for the Holidays

by Marie Prato

Escape into an alternate universe with each horrific tale. Leave the weariness of Christmas shopping, holiday meal planning, cleaning and all the "company" preparations behind in the real world. Believe us, you'll find worse fears in this collection of horrific short fiction.

Question from the e-mail:  Is writing an art? Or can anyone do it?

Answer:  It is both and anyone can Learn to do it on some level.

I do believe that writing is an art. But it’s also a craft. No one can write your stories but you. No one can create exactly as you can. No one else on earth has your “voice.”

But there are tips and little techniques that you can learn to make the work easier for you. And there are grammar rules that each of us must learn and they don't always come naturally, even to folks with undeniable talent.

Just as an artist learns to mix colors, what glaze or wash will enhance a color, or help to make water look "wet," so will a writer learn how to get across to the reader the story that goes on in her head.

Like anything you do, the more practice you put in, the better you get at it.
