How Should I Start My Horror Story?

Hi everyone! First off, happy pride month for everyone who is a part of the LGBTQ+ :rainbow_flag: family, like myself! :bi_flag: Also, its my birthday week! Yay! But, in all seriousness, I made this topic as you can see from the title, I’m stuck…yet again! This time, I’m writing a horror/thriller story and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to start it and once I get that figured out, I’ll go from there.

Here’s what the story is about:
Title: Now You See Me
Genre: Horror/Thriller (somewhere in between)
Style: Limelight
Summary: After your best friend is murdered, you start having supernatural dreams of her and are placed in a mental institution. As the weeks go by, you start to see that all is not right.

Now You See Me

I’m writing the story from the MC’s point of view so every now and then, I’ll put narration in between parts of the story. So, what should I do?
Lots of love! Stay safe, and as the High School Musical song goes, “We’re all in this together!

Happy Pride!

What if she’s in therapy and the therapist starts asking her questions that cause her to have traumatic flashbacks?

Nice idea! That’s really reminding me of “Happy Death Day” which I still haven’t seen. lol!
