Hello, I am new to this forum and recently I have started writing after a long absence. I always enjoyed writing when I was very young then stopped. Writing always came easy to me and I do enjoy it so I have decided to pick it up again. The area where I found myself gravitating to is shorter stories which as a genre you would call "Horror". I enjoy using elements of the paranormal or supernatural (Not YA leaning). I find that when I look at my writing I tend to veer away from the shock element or gratuity when dealing with actions against people. More of a keep the feelings, atmosphere and setting visceral but leave actions of inhumanity in the shadows. I wonder then is it really a horror then or is the line coming closer to mystery or thriller for example. I am curious to hear others thoughts.
