October Submission Blitz – Ominous Fog

October 24, 2013 at 2:19 am (dark fantasy, horror, Links, writing) (, , , , , )

I sent out “Amnesty” for the third time this blitz, and made more progress on “Zuka’s Misfortune”. Only a few more days to go and then I may take a stab at NaNoWriMo. I have a novel that needs finishing so if I do choose to go for the 50,000 it won’t require a lot of preparation. The question stands as to whether or not I’ll have the drive to make it this year. It wavers from day to day.

A third anthology for the month containing one of my stories was released today. You can find Nightmare Stalkers and Dream Walkers at this link. This comes along with the two earlier releases this month, Dark Moon Digest #13 and Dead North.

Today’s horror trope is an ominous fog. This is an oldie but goodie, a classic trope that dates back to the days of black and white flicks, rolling in to add atmosphere and hide things from view for increased suspense. Some stories and movies have expanded the trope to become the dominant feature in the plot, like in “The Fog” or one of my favourites “The Mist.”

I’m hoping to hear back on a couple more submissions before month’s end – fingers crossed.
