Hey, first post, nice to meet you guys. So I've been meaning to write a thriller/mystery story with a little horror and romance thrown in but I'm inexperienced in this kind of writing. Like, how would I build suspense or fear in the story? Also, the setting is in some secluded place that would not allow outside interference or escape but I can't think of anything at the moment other then "Laudy, laudy, Were in a big ol' mansion, it's on a island, it's rainy outside, and I dun want to run for that there boat with one of dem killers on da' loose!" I can only assume that some psychological factors are going to be thrown in as well... Any help is appreciated!
