What makes a good horror story? Hideous monsters and fountains of blood might seem like a good place to start, but as horror author H.P. Lovecraft wrote, “The oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” Writers harness that fear not by revealing horrors, but by leaving the audience hanging in a state of suspense. Victoria Smith gives some tips for adding suspense to your writing.

If you’re looking for a guide on how to get your high school diploma online, then you will want to read this article. Specifically, I will discuss the step-by-step actions that are required for earning your high school diploma online. Also, I will offer you some advice on what to look for, and what to be aware of, when evaluating different virtual high schools to get your diploma.
If you’re going to get your high school diploma online, it is smart to get it from an institution with credibility and authority. How do you measure this?
By looking at whether or not the online school is accredited. There are a lot of options out there that look professional, and seem to offer a genuine high school diploma, but in reality they are scams.
By not being accredited, they are not accepted by universities as a valid diploma, nor by most employers who require a high school diploma. This is because non-accredited programs don’t have to follow any specific guidelines.
In fact, most of them simply require you pass a very easy test, and pay them money in exchange for a diploma. Avoid these institutes.
Once you find an accredited online high school, then you can enroll and start working on your diploma. First, you need to decide how many classes you’d like to take.
The best way to do this is to set a goal on when you would like to obtain your high school diploma. Then calculate how many classes you’d have to take each semester, in order to make that goal a reality.
Each course you pass online will earn you a credit. When you pass the required courses, and turn the appropriate amount of credits, then you will earn your high school diploma, and be furnished complete transcripts of your grades. Your transcripts are needed in order to prove that you earned your high school diploma.
If you’re unsure of which online courses to take to get your high school diploma, you have certain options available to you. You can usually contact somebody from online that works at the virtual high school, and asked them your questions. Or you can go to a trusted source, such as a school counselor at your old high school, and asked them what your options are.
