I write psychological thrillers.
Recently, I found several hashtags that brought forth a wealth of information for my psyche obsession. If you, too, write about things that go bump in the dark, whether the bump is real or in the mind of your protagonist, I recommend spending a bit of time on Twitter.
Here is a list of some of what messes with the minds of our twitter brothers and sisters:
Cards against humanity played at midnight in a creepy victorian attic
Swarms of insects or the sound of swarming insects in the dark
Black buttons for eyes
Someone standing stock still outside my window
Not being able to see what is under me when swimming
My best friend whispering to no one when we are supposed to be asleep
Being mauled by a rabid animal
Teenagers circling me on an abandoned street
Someone saying, “I love you,” with a knife against my throat
Something happening to my kids
Body jumping spirits
Over one hour on Twitter, I wrote so many story ideas into my story journal that my hand was cramping. If you are struggling with writer’s block, or if you just want to spice things up a bit in your current WIP, here are a few hashtags to get your creative juices flowing:
