Hallowe’en is almost here. So this month I decided to write an actual horror story. Some people considered August’s story, Pages, to be horror, and it certainly has some creepy elements, but Reflection is straight horror.
As always, I enjoyed writing this one. It didn’t come out exactly as I had originally envisioned it, but sometimes the first idea just doesn’t work when the actual writing starts. That’s when, as a writer, you have to go with what works, and not keep yourself restrained by the original plan.
I hope you enjoy Reflection. Next month, I return to the world of the Undying Empire with a story I actually wrote in 2015, and is the longest short story I’ve written yet.
