How Urban Legends Shaped My Newest Horror Story #WIHM

I had fun writing my horror novella, Urban Legends (working title). A serial killer terrorizes a group of college students with urban legends, killing them one by one. In honor of Women In Horror Month, I was a guest on Priscilla Bettis’s blog–The making of a horror novelist. If you would like to see the nine urban legends that inspired my horror scenes, then please click on the link: Guest Post: How Urban Legends Shaped My Newest Story by Yawatta Hosby.

What’s your favorite urban legend? Mine is Bloody Mary. To this day, I refuse to say her name five times while looking in a mirror. No siree.

Keep smiling,

  1. Oh my gosh! What a blast from the past… Bloody Mary! This brought back memories of sleepovers and scary stories we would tell. I don’t think I was brave enough to hold the candle in front of the mirror and chant her name. I do remember some of the other girls doing it though.

    Thanks for the memories!

    • Hi Sue,

      Sounds like you had some fun slumber parties. The most we ever did at the ones I attended was play with barbie dolls and watch PG-13 movies haha.

      Keep smiling,
      Yawatta
