Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Writing about witches
I took this picture a few days ago. You may recognise the ensign of a nearby village hall. It fascinates me. I am uploading it today because it is fitting for this post's subject. I have been wanting to write a horror story about witches for ages and I might have finally found the opportunity to get myself into it. At the end of my last creative writing workshop, we decided of the date for our next meeting and the general theme we'd go for. As it will be a few days before Halloween, we decided to write Halloween stories. Ihave done this before for fun, on this very blog, but I just thought: that will be the opportunity to write proper horror. And you may remember that I thought about a way to move the witch as an antagonist into a modern setting (read my post from the 15th of October 2018 on the subject). Well, my very first proper horror story will be a story about an evil witch. And I already have a pretty good idea of how it will start and how it will end.
