Okay. You creeped me out.
I started reading this and I was like "Nahh nothing I read ever freaks me! This'll be no different."
Then the Writer sees something move by the koi pond.
For some reason I was like "Meh!"
And oh god.
The way you described the Malice (that's what I'll refer to it as)...
Like you didn't go into much detail besides the red eyes (always freak me out for some reason) and the hissing and the chair and It sitting in it before the Writer...
Freaky ass shit.
That had me shaking.
The reader can project what he thinks the Malice looks like, and that makes it even more frightening!
So. I usually don't like present tense writing, but you made this work. It makes it seem like a dream or a movie.
And great characterization!
I really enjoyed your examinations of his thoughts and psyche and everything.
I'm trying to figure out what the Malice represents...
I feel like his self-doubt as a writer is possible...that seems too easy...
Maybe a backlash for his arrogance?
At any rate, this was a fascinating story, and actually scary!

What are you trying to do scare me half to death? Man this tory was so scary that I actualy did jump. My mom was weashing dishes and drooped something, and I was reading your story, and I jumped! I still have the image of that thing in my head! It makes me shiver!
But away from all that this story is really good! I say your a master at Sci-Fi and Horror! You make me so scared, but yet you make me want to continue to read!
