Shadow Play is my present long-term writing project. Started back in October 2009, when my Teen Titans writing was in a lull. I mentioned to CWS that maybe what I needed was another story for a change of pace, he suggested a Halloween-themed fic...and Shadow Play was the eventual result.

Since "cheesy holiday episode" is thoroughly unappealing to me, I was left with tapping the association of Halloween with horror movies...making Shadow Play my first (and presently only) attempt at writing anything resembling the horror genre. Which is made all the more interesting because I don't particular like horror movies, so this an experiment in that regard. Shadow Play is also my first attempt at featuring my favorite Teen Titans character (Jinx).

The latest chapter went up just a couple days ago, so this would be a good time to catch up on it, if you're so inclined. I would appreciate any comments/questions/predictions/suggestions/and-so-on that you may have; the "genre experiment" portion benefits greatly from reader input.

The only comment I have right now that you haven't already heard is that, at least up to this point, I think "suspense" would be a better description/category for this than "horror". But in any case, I've found it quite enjoyable thus far. 8-)

That's somewhat concerning. So what distinguishes "suspense" from "horror"?

I think suspense is more about the anticipation building up to the terrifying reveal of whatever monster there be, whereas horror is less about the creature/entity/entities in questions being mysterious and more about them just being horrifying in some way or another.

It was quite good, in my opinion.

And here we are again! Five weeks for a 4,000 word chapter...I guess it's not really impressive, but at least I've gotten back to writing stuff on a consistent basis.

And moving right along. Nearly 6,000 words this time, and...two months to get it written and uploaded. Still not impressive, but still not bad

And another new chapter is up!

My unofficial goal is to finish the story before Halloween. Whether that's feasible or not is debatable at this point, but I'm still trying to make it happen, dagnabbit :-P

Psst, you forgot to mention that you've posted two more chapters since the last update. :P

And things are getting pretty darn climactic, if you don't mind my saying so.

But, we are up to the penultimate chapter. :ugeek:
