My Thoughts on Wild Minds by Aiden Merchant
My goodness. I just love tales centered around someone isolating themselves in a cabin! Take that, and add in both a snow storm that has blocked the roads AND a terrifying monster?! A perfect recipe for me!
This short story had amazing atmosphere! I love that we very quickly went from seeing the monster as a writing muse to being horrified by it.
I found myself feeling like I was getting a bit angsty the further into the story I got. When I finally hit the ending, it was with quite the pair of mixed feelings; both shock and relief that I could come up to breathe again. What a tale!!
I highly recommend this story to those that enjoy getting themselves lost in the darkness of a horror tale!
Thanks for reading!
