Wanna Be Creepy

This Week's Topic: What Genre Have I Secretly Wished I Could Write?

That suspense.
That masterful control of anticipation.
That fear without gore.

A good thriller keeps me flipping pages until dawn. I have to know what comes next. I admire thriller writers and envy the good ones who instill terror with words and make me jump when the dog stretches.

I wanna write like that. Those skills...(wistful sigh). Yes, please. I aspire to that level, to creep into that genre, and to leave chills down readers' spines (even after they've put down the book).
