The existence of abhorrent written fiction like Twilight, Fifty Shades of Grey and a book by Snooki should inspire fear in everyone.

I saw this once on an after school special. Mary & Sally, best friends. They did absolutely everything together. Then one day, Mary fell in with the "wrong crowd" and Mary didn't have time for Sally anymore. Sally would say, "Wanna go play a game or pretend we're kitties?" And Mary would say, "Uh-uh, I'm in with the wrong crowd!" Sally was so sad, that she ran home, climbed up a tree and started eating cookies. A ton of cookies. She got huge. Huge! HUUUGE! HUUUUUUUGE!

Or you could just stick with some light reading... Like  Famous Jewish Sports Legends...

I looked him up on the imdb way back early 2000's maybe even late 90's
I couldn't figure how he hadn't become a major scene stealing star
Turns out he died in 86

sad

I'm curious what words they felt were synonymous with fear.  Horror is still very much a niche genre, at least that's what every agent and publisher told me when I was trying to publish my stuff.

I was actually thinking along those lines when reading this headline.  Book titles from the likes of Ann Coulter and Jonah Goldberg are specifically intended to be scary.


From TFA:

But slightly before 1980, the use of words to connote fear began to climb

Coincides nicely with the Reagan revolution and the rise of Neoconservatism.

See, I can jam politics into a thread where it doesn't belong, too!

I don't know if I'd go that far, but the underwater barfight scene has brought pee dangerously close to my pants before.

Dark times lead to dark humor.  Witches aren't as cute as they used to be, to name one concept.
 
2013-03-23 11:29:46 PM
They were not looking at emotional tone, just words that correspond to an emotion.

I've read scary books that do not ever use the word "scary" or "terror". Because only shiatty writers just flat out say "AND IT WAS TOTALLY SCARY!".
 
2013-03-24 12:09:10 AM
sorry, just because there are more "scary" words in a book doesn't make it a scary story. SK's latest books have been crap and nothing beats HP Lovecraft or 1984 or Oryx and Crake and those last two weren't even horror stories.

It's really the only sensiblething to do, if it's done safely.Therapeutically there's no danger involved.
