A Novel or Novella that Will Keep You Hooked on Each Page
Greetings, fellow horror readers and writing enthusiasts! Today, I am thrilled to provide you with an exciting update on my latest project, "The Devil that Haunts Me." As I continue my creative journey, I am currently at 20,000 words, deeply immersed in the captivating world of this novel (or perhaps novella). While my focus is not solely on word count, I am driven by the desire to complete a compelling story that delves into difficult themes and showcases the resilience of imperfect characters. Join me as I share some insights into my progress and the various sources of inspiration that fuel my creative process.
Exploring the Depths In "The Devil That Haunts Me"
I aim to tackle sensitive subjects such as trauma, messy families, and the scars that linger within imperfect individuals. With each rewrite of Chapter 10, I am struck by the profound impact these experiences have on the main character, Isabella. Drawing inspiration from Isabel Cañas' thought-provoking book, "Hacienda," I find myself diving into the depths of Isabella's past as she revisits her childhood home in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Within those familiar walls, Isabella unearths the haunting truth about the trauma her daughter endured during the years of their separation. The complex emotions and revelations that arise from this exploration form the core of my narrative, adding depth and authenticity to Isabella's journey of healing and self-discovery.
International Horror Films: A Tapestry of Chills
As a writer, I find immense inspiration in the world of international horror films. One particular gem, "Para Betina Pengikut Iblis," has captivated my imagination with its supernatural horror vibes. Drawing parallels to my own work, "The Devil that Haunts Me," I am fascinated by the way the film's characters navigate their lives in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, haunted not only by economic struggles but also by the dark secrets lurking within their homes. Similarly, my characters confront the toxic and harmful behaviors that society often turns a blind eye to, and these haunting elements weave through the tapestry of every scene in my book. The juxtaposition of supernatural horror and the authentic struggles of the characters creates a truly immersive and gripping reading experience.
The Road Ahead
As I continue to write "The Devil that Haunts Me," I am exhilarated by the progression of the story and the profound impact it has on both the characters and myself as the author. While the final form of this project may evolve into either a novel or a novella, I remain steadfast in my commitment to delivering a compelling and thought-provoking narrative. The themes of trauma, imperfect characters, and the power of healing will remain at the forefront, guiding the story to its poignant conclusion.
Thank you for joining me on this writing update for "The Devil that Haunts Me." With each word and rewritten scene, I am propelled forward by the inspiration drawn from Isabel Cañas' "Hacienda" and the chilling supernatural horror vibes of "Para Betina Pengikut Iblis." As the story unfolds, it is my utmost hope that readers will be captivated by the raw emotions, complex characters, and profound journey of healing and self-discovery. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting project as I navigate the winding path toward its completion.
