Sometimes when I have no ideas for a blog post nor brain to come up with any, I get on Facebook and find a cool picture, usually of a monster. Sometimes not so much. That is what you might call a heck of a note, especially during the month of October. I wonder if my dear husband Steven downloaded anything good recently…
I’m going to count Darth Vader as a monster, although I suppose he is more properly considered a villain. This being Non-Sequitur Thursday, I picked a few non-sequitur-looking pictures. Darth Vader and Elvis Presley, there’s a buddy picture nobody ever made. I suppose I could write a screenplay (if I knew how to write a screenplay), but who could we get to play Elvis? Anyways, I would probably be lousy at pitching it to the studios. That’s what you do with a screenplay, isn’t it?
Vampires are definitely monsters. This is a book which occupies a proud place in our Halloween decorations. Steven sought it out when he first heard of its existence. I think a friend saw it in a bookstore window and posted a picture on Facebook. Let’s hear it for posting pictures on Facebook!
There’s a new ambition for me: to find a ghost or other monster whose bed or closet I can hide under or in.
As you may have noticed, my writing tribulations continue. I open the notebook and put pen to paper and nothing happens. Oh, sometimes I write words then cross them out. Then I write other words, some of which I let remain uncrossed. They look up at me mockingly, flaunting their own ineptitude (how’s that for an awkward bit of anthropomorphism?). And I make silly blog posts with pictures of monsters. I like monsters.
