With the launch of this new site I wanted to give new subscribers the opportunity to read some of my work but the new site is very bare of stories. I could have copied over my old stories but to be honest that seemed a bit too much work. So I had the thought that I’d create a wee book of stories from old work. The bulk of this work was published in 2014 for Sirens Call eZine, an online horror magazine.
I have not written anything substantial for around 12months. I have dabbled with short horror flash fiction but basically the past year has been filled with a drought of inspiration. Many things contributed to this, life, lack of mojo, and general laziness. But I think the rot set in during NaNoWriMo 2015.
Back in 2012 I was a novice writer and had discovered a great bunch of other aspiring writers who shared my passion for the written word. Though not all of them were horror fans, in fact I found myself in the minority. It didn’t stop me or them from connecting and introducing me to the wonderful world of shared writing.
Welcome to the first Horror Bites Challenge for October. The challenge is for you to write a short horror story inspired by the image I’ve posted below. Feel free to use the wolf image to the left for your site if you wish, my son drew it so no worries about copy-write infringement.
