Write about a character trapped in a deserted place, like a haunted house or a derelict ship.
Isolation heightens fear. It sharpens the senses, puts you on edge. In your writing, transport the reader into the depths of your character’s fear as they find themselves in abandoned, daunting surroundings. The creaking house, the echoing ship, devoid of contact yet seemingly alive with ominous energy. Dwelling on the character’s escalating dread and the suspense in their eerie surroundings will add layers to your narrative.
