I’m in the midst of re-writing a scene depicting a horrific chasm in the ground filled with grey, undulating cavities and filled with what will end up being either monstrous worm things, monstrous spider things, or a whole mess of monstrous bugs of all varieties. In fact, having just written that sentence, it’s gotta be the latter. If you’re creating anything, don’t be afraid to go with the icky things if the content demands it. The line between truth and gratuity is fine indeed, but one that storytellers must tread. Well, at least this storyteller must tread it.
Think of Something Icky
