As of July 31, 2011 Written in Blood will be just that. It will no longer carry the subtitle ‘A Horror Fan’s Random Ramblings’. This will reflect that I intend to write solely about horror. I am sure there were those of you who got a kick out of my Random Ramblings posts and the one about sending away for new breasts. If you did, I’m glad; but looking back I don’t find them to be in tune with the original idea I had for this blog. Written in Blood is my love letter to horror films. That is why I am constantly trying to improve my writing and to find the right words in the right sequence. Stephen King once said of the novelist Thomas Harris (The Silence of the Lambs) that writing is like “writhing on the floor in agonies of frustration”, because, for Harris, “the very act of writing is a kind of torment”. I don’t find the act of writing to be a torment, but I understand what King means. Like Harris, I want to put together the right letters to form the right words, sentences and paragraphs to get my point across to my audience. Am I making sense?
From this point forward and with schedule permitting I will post a new review every Wednesday. As for all you Scream Queen lovers I will try to post a new Scream Queen of the Month on the first of each month; although I may fix it to where it will be an individual post. That means I wouldn’t be adding to the Scream Queen of the Month Page, instead I will make a post for each new Scream Queen I choose.
So, those are the changes. I don’t think anyone is going to be freaked out by them. I just want to do my best for myself and for you, my readers. Thank you.
