    Another aspiring author here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Stoiesoftheendofdays, Oct 23, 2018.

    Hi everyone, just another aspiring author here working on my first novel.
    I generally write in the survival horror and fantasy realms.

    I look forward to seeing you all in the forums.

    Regards
    SB

    Hello, and welcome. I know of Survival Horror as a video game term, but I've never seen it applied to fiction before. What does it entail?

    Sure, bears are scary, but are they horror? Or were you perhaps thinking about Leo?

    Nope. Had to figure out a way to wipe out 90% (and dropping) of the population without leaving an unsustainable environment.
    I humbly admit, I know not what protmanteau means, here. It is such a cool sounding word, though. :D

    They're those long hybrid words you get when you slam some smaller words together hard enough to break pieces off them.
