Finding My Way between Genres


  Finding My Way between Genres   Traci Kenworth       I know I’ve said I write scary before, but it occurred to me recently that I also bring in the whole world-building of fantasy as well. I find myself teetering between genres. My stories definitely have all the horror elements but the world […]

Relationships in Horror


Relationships are Key to Horror Traci Kenworth   For me, when writing horror, the relationships are the key. The ones between your characters and, most importantly, the reader. Because if the reader doesn’t care what happens to them, then the book’s just going to be tossed aside or deteriorate on the shelves. So how do […]

When the Muse strikes…


  When the Muse Strikes…   Traci Kenworth       Often, if you’re like me, the Muse strikes whenever it wants to. Sometimes, it’s convenient, sometimes not but if you’re a writer, you learn to deal. Do I lose some fragments of ideas when I’m driving or at the doctor’s office? Sure. It happens, […]

  The Future of Book Reviews on This Blog   Traci Kenworth       For some time I’ve been thinking about these book reviews and whether they take the blog in the direction I want it to go. I’ve decided that they don’t. This doesn’t mean I’m giving up on reading books or the […]

Update Feb. 7, 2013


  Update Feb. 7, 2013   Traci Kenworth       I’m still in the editing/rewriting stages on my wip. Although it may not seem like I’m making much progress (it feels like it’s been forever doing this), truly I am. My story has undergone such changes that will make it better, stronger, hopefully more […]
