reading king

by juliecround

Just finished reading Pet Semetary by Stephen King and reluctant to start anything else as it was so involving.
Trouble is, when you read something as good as that it makes your own work seem inferior by comparison. I will get back to writing but the urge to add some horror is very strong. My readers would be amazed if I changed my genre. It’s enough that I gradually added a little sex (very discreet) over the three books, now I want to scare them as well! I think perhaps making the bad characters more wicked should be enough.As it is, it will take another year to finish at the rate I’m going.I have found another book that mentions Worthing as a place for retirees – the Marigold Hotel. That will prove a great contrast with King, I expect!
