This is more along the lines of a fantasy, action, or thriller story.
If you are anything like me, you love to write and read about gore. If you want to write something that has some blood in it, make sure you write it good or it'll seem gross and boring. People will most likely skip over it while reading, but if you give a nice and clean description, you're book will be great.
If you need me to paint the picture for you more (preferably in the blood of my enemies) here is a description of a scene for you: His blood spilled from his lower torso like a crimson waterfall. It left a haunting yet beautiful imprint in my mind when I tried to fall asleep that night.
I know, I'm really good at writing gory scenes; it comes naturally I guess. Anyway, try to make the gory parts sound beautiful and enchanting, it leaves the reader in an odd sense of bliss and harmony with the book. Now, I have a challenge for you. Whoever leaves the best description of a gory and bloody scene in the comments gets to see two endings that I took out of my novel 'Life As He Knows It'.
(Gild means lightly covered in blood, but gilded means lightly covered in gold. I think that's beautiful and confusing.)
this is where i ramble; have fun
