Just a thought for horror writers…
We sit in our nice, comfortable houses, full of our good food and good drink, and write about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse, or the end of the world, for entertainment purposes. For fun.
But what if it was the zombie apocalypse? What if we were living through the horrors of the end of the world? What would we write about then?
After years of battling the undead, would that ultimately become humankind’s normality, therefore making the age old comforts of home the true horror?
Would we then write about living in nice, comfortable houses? Would we write about being full of good food and good drink?
Would that be entertainment? Would that be fun?
Would that be terrifyingly horrific?
Well, would it?
