WELCOME TO HARROWSCAPE
The home that horror built. My name is Christopher Collins, and this is my site. Chronicled here is the story of one writer's journey from wannabe writer to published author. I'll talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly about the creative process. I'll give you the hard, cold facts of the business side of writing as I have learned them, as I continue to learn them. And, if I can possibly manage it, I will hopefully inspire you, give you some soupçon of motivation that will keep you expressing yourself, even when you feel like you're talking to an empty room.
And hey, you might even have a little fun while you're here.
So, come on in. Pull up a chair. Pour yourself a glass of wine, and let the fire warm you. The night outside is cold....
And there's no telling what is hiding in the shadows.
Disclaimer: For those of you who are new here, please be aware that this site is not for children. I write adult horror, and this site is intended to be read by mature audiences only. As the title of one movie puts it: There will be blood. (and cursing, and nudity, and all the other stuff we hope our children don't find out about until we have been safely planted in our graves, three years, minimum)
You have been warned.
Words to Write by
"Writing is at its best - always, always, always - when it is a kind of inspired play for the writer."
