And we're back to another Monstrous Monday. I figured I'd finally touch on one of the other creatures in the actual header image so why not mermaids / mermen, otherwise known as merfolk. Keep in mind these creatures are different from sirens and the like, which might be a good topic for next week in … Continue reading MM – Merfolk
And we're back for another Monstrous Monday! I'm on a role! As promised, today we're going to be taking a look at the cockatrice, a creature that is as deadly and evil as the basilisk we took a look at last week. For the sake of separating these two critters, I will be doing a … Continue reading MM – Cockatrice
Yeah... that whole new year, new leaf thing got off to a great start, didn't it? XD Anyway... Welcome back to another Monstrous Monday! At least I'm getting to another post in the same month this time. 😉 Moving in the right direction! So, to the topic at hand. I kept trying to figure out … Continue reading MM – Basilisk
New year, new leaf. At least that's what I keep trying to tell myself. I'm not big on making New Year's resolutions. I've learned I don't have a great track record with keeping them. But that doesn't mean some things aren't worth trying again. And again. And again. And as many times as it might … Continue reading MM – Ouroboros
Narrated by Naomi On to another Monstrous Monday. Perhaps this one is largely because I actually mentioned a phoenix in my previous post but why not? Welcome to a short discussion about everyone's favorite firebird! And even if they're not your favorite, they're still amazing in their own right. If you've seen the Harry Potter … Continue reading MM – Phoenix
Narrated by Naomi It took me much longer than I intended for it to and it went in very different directions than I had previously imagined, not to mention significantly longer, but I finished and I'm happy and quite proud of myself. I wrote the first chapter on October 21st of last year and finished … Continue reading Finished my current FF WIP!
Ah yes. The tried and true monster of the night. Vampires. I'm sure we all know the basics and while I could find resources and go on at length about them, I wanted to take a look at a few of the common traits and then how you can sort of play with them. Personally … Continue reading Vampires
*gasp* Several of my students have told me about Canva and just how accessible and easy it is to use. I can be a bit skeptical at times but they have honestly spoken nothing but the truth here. While I may not have the creative writing bug yet, or lately in general, the ability to … Continue reading Canva Magic!
While I am in no way a great actor of various voices - that honor belongs to my brother, at the behest of my mother, I would like to narrate this fascinating story, as she got a great kick out of it when I first recited it for her. I may not have a repertoire … Continue reading “Some scientists think” Funny Story – Narrated
In which one werewolf has a bad day and the rest of his packmates decide he needs cuddles.
