It’s Goth Monday!
While scanning websites I located so interesting material.
Wikihow.com gives instructions on ‘how to write Gothic Fiction;.http://www.wikihow.com/Write-Gothic-Fiction
Have you read this article? Do you agree? Disagree? Is there a template of excellent fiction?
I believe the elements in each genre are what a reader is hungry for. However, the storyline, can never be developed from a template.
What about the genre itself?
Has the genre evolved since “Dracula” and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” was written? Or, in your opinion, has it spun into an entirely ‘un-gothic direction?
Is “American Gothic” the new Gothic?
Top Ten Gothic Films Agree?
Worst Gothic Films I liked ‘Mary Reilly’. Even though I am not a Julia Roberts fan, I found the take on the story very thought provoking. I also felt that”Lady Frankenstein”, it was a little disturbing (I have difficulty with Frankenstein and the abandonment issue evolving around of Victor and the Monster, anyway). However, I didn’t think is should be on this list.
Readers, what are you thoughts?
