6 thoughts on “Writing a Psychological Thriller

  1. Thanks for sharing, Yawatta! I tend to write fun and at least darkly humorous cosy mysteries, but at times I delve into short psychological horrors, and thus i found this very interesting. Getting into the minds of any characters is tiring, but I daren’t imagine what it’s like to get into the mind of a murderer.

    • Hey Miss Alexandrina,

      I love getting into my characters’ heads as well. When I have to go into a dark place, I make sure to watch a comedy or do something silly afterwards. It probably wouldn’t be good to keep those intense feelings built up LOL.

      I didn’t know you liked to write short psychological horrors. It’d be fun to read some of your shorts.

      Keep smiling,
      Yawatta

      • Haha, yeah, that’s true. 😛

        Well, I’ve only really written one of proper quality, but, yeah, I don’t mind sending it to you if you want. I might actually be expanding it in the summer. A small press will be opening a call for anthology submission and I think the story will be a fit, so I’ll be renovating and submitting it.

      • Hey Miss Alexandrina,

        Did you ever send your short story? If so, I never got it through my email.

        Keep smiling,
        Yawatta

      • Oh, no, I haven’t yet. I haven’t really had the time to look over it at all, frankly.
