Horror DoA

Whelps, ‘shockingly,’ it turns out my horror concept, Lily’s Party, simply isn’t that novel (whodathought a guy who never watches horror would have a novel horror concept?).  Two of the three horror aficionados I asked for input (the third hasn’t really got back to me) essentially said there wasn’t much ‘there’ there and their suggestions for lengthening the story were going against such intent I had when I started writing.

Since shorts never make money, and I’m in this for that purpose, then, for me, it’s no longer a project worth pursuing.  If the concept was more novel, perhaps I’d enter some sort of contest where I could hope to get money to film the short, thus not risking any investor dollars.
