Greetings Bidites! I come to you today in search of personal opinions.
I’ve been tangled up in this specific idea nce I initially gned up to the te and became a regular poster. After last evening, when a friend of mine who happens to be an aspiring writer, asked me, Does horrorBid run original works of fiction? I decided it was time to address you, the community, our wonderful contributors, and of course, Justin, our fearless leader: are you interested in reading original scripts, short stories, novellas and novels (I hope you’re familiar with the almighty PDF) here on HorrorBid?
As most should have noticed at this point, HorrorBid.com caters to those who love horror. We cover film, we cover collectibles, up-to-date news and a whole lot more. If you want it, it is delivered, and thanks to the wonderful structure of the te, you horrorbid members are able to make your own personal contributions, whether it be film review or newly surfaced pics of the next-big-flick. So, what of the realm of literature?
There is a wealth of talent lurking here in the horrorbid fold, and I’m certain there’s a scribe or two amongst the midst (I know we’ve got some filmmakers here who emerge on occaon). I myself have been working at honing my fictional works for some time, which has resulted in more than a ngle finalized script and a handful of (what I hope are) proming short stories scattered about.
As a man who would like to one day earn a respectable living writing fiction, I know I’d love to take in some feedback and constructive criticism from time to time. The question however lingers: would you, our faithful followers be interested in reading it?
I’m the kind of buness man (I’ve accomplished a small handful of things in my time, including the release of a few profesonally produced albums as well as co-creating a sports magazine) who looks at the brick wall and sees the road beyond; walls pulverized, foundation cleared, rubble swept, heat waves undulating in semi-transparent contortions: emitted by fresh paving soaked in summer sun. And the idea of seeing fiction hit the te holds more than entertainment promise, it could one day open a door to a world of publishing posbilities; this is after all, the first genuinely interactive digital horror magazine, and once upon a time magazines offered some extremely entertaining fiction!
Who knows what tomorrow holds?
Speaking of tomorrow is irrelevant at this point however, as tomorrow truly is a completely different animal. Today, we discuss today, and whether or not you’d be interested in reading fictionalized works penned by horrorbid members themselves. Would you check out the new short story from say, dew, if it were to be posted in the coming moments (this is hypothetical, keep in mind)?
The next Stephen King may be right here in our midst, while we t idle, oblivious to the talent beneath our noses.
So, the question is mple (and now becoming really repetitive
): would you be interested in reading original fiction, crafted by your fellow peers here at HorrorBid?
Note: There are no plans to launch into the world of literary digital distribution, or kick off regular fiction based columns right now; that’s not the purpose of this piece. I’m writing this, because I (personally) am curious as to the level of interest te users may or may not have in reading some new fiction from hungry, yet unknown authors. I tend to read a decent amount of short stories and scripts online. The question is, do you?
