I tend to prefer the familiar roads with a new guide verses taking a totally alien (and you are right, gross) direction with the horror.
The thing with what terrifies us as people is that it doesn't change. Generally humans are afraid of the same things, the same tropes, the same phobias. They are hardwired into our bodies, so it makes sense to use them when trying to freak out a reader. That said, I have nothing but respect for writers who are able to take those familiar fears/situations and turn them around in some new and creative manner.
With those that try the new route and experimentation, if they succeed, awesome. However generally they tend to lean on things that are hard wired into humans as well, such as things that squig us out or gross us out rather than trying to find new ways to scare us.
For myself, I tend to lean towards things that scare me, or that I know scare those around me or the populous in general. But they also have to be things I experience or have some sort of investment in.
Terrorism, for example, isn't so much of a fear for Canadians as it is for Americans, so I won't write a story involving it. I understand the fear, but don't have the same fear that others have, so I won't do it justice if I wrote something involving it.
I hope that helps to explain it. If not, let me know and I will take another stab at it. :)(less)

Considering Webnovel.com?

I admit, I was considering Webnovel as a potential site to post a serialized work. It had a pretty good interface and a TON of works uploaded to it. Some of them I had even seen on Amazon.com and are reading now. (based off the article I reference later on, this seems to actually be illegal based off the contract they signed with Webnovel...)

So what turned me off about it and why am I writing abo Read more of this blog post »
