This is an adaptation of a two sentence horror story posted on Reddit by therealhatman. Highlight the text below to read.

I woke up to hear knocking on glass. At first, I thought it was the window until I heard it come from the mirror again.

It's amazing what you can convey with just two simple lines.

Stephen King Interview


While I don’t keep up with Stephen King’s fiction as much as I used to, I always find time to hear what he has to say about writing. Here’s a link to a recent Rolling Stone interview:

Interesting to learn that a guy with all this incredible success still has fear of failure dreams (nightmares) -- everything hinges on passing a test for a class which you totally forgot to attend! It’s amazing how much drugs and alcohol were a factor in his work. It certainly didn't slow down his output but he readily admits the results weren't always very good, like The Tommyknockers.

Sunday Shorts: Geometria

Hellboy wasn't even a twinkle in Guillermo Del Toro's eye when he wrote/directed this short in 1987, but he obviously had an interest in demons...

Sunday Shorts: Tuck Me In

 

Stumbled across this *really* short film from a post over on soundonsight.org. Written by Juan J. Ruiz and directed by Ignacio F. Rodo, Tuck Me In is a perfect example of what you can do with a very little amount of time. And while it's highly unlikely that writing shorts will propel you onto next year's Black List, they can be useful exercises in becoming a more efficient writer: learning to start scenes as late as possible, cutting useless dialogue/overly descriptive action and getting straight to the point.
