Gore (October Frights Blog Hop 4)

Apparently, I write quite gory.

Recently, somebody, who read the prologue I had written for a draft pointed out that it was gory and I remember thinking that I had not even noticed.

The reason for that is that I feel very emotionally detached from my novels. I don't identify with my characters, because I have built them from scratch. To me, it is so blatantly obvious that they are fictional that I am genuinely surprised every time I am told that I wrote a relatable character or that something they did seemed realistic.

  1. I find writing the gory can be fun.

  2. I don't write gory, but I can get pretty gruesome in my deaths.
