Inspire me, Watson

The-Landscape-Nature-WallpaperYou can find a regular post from The Midnight Type entitled ‘Inspire me, Watson‘ where our alter ego selves will tell you what inspires us and hopefully inspire you (that’s the plan). This instalment is from my alter ego WERE and it won’t be of any surprise to know that nature is the one true inspiration. So go and have a read, take part in the workshop, and have some tissues handy because there is a special bonus. Don’t forget you can follow us on twitter @TheMidnightType.

The Pendour Cove Siren

mermaid_fish_horns_fantasy_art_purple_hair_sharks_artwork_anubis_long_ears_underwater_weapon_1920_Wallpaper_1440x900_www-1.wallpaperhi.comThe Pendour Cove Siren is my instalment for Dark Carnival created by Pen and Muse, the brain child of Kristen Jett and Jolene Haley. I met both Kristen and Jolene on twitter through our mutual love of horror, the paranormal and just plain freakishness and it is just awesome to meet and work with like minded writers. Plans are afoot for another showcase coming soon, stay tuned for more details.

Blessed Samhain and a Happy New Year

wiccan_calendar_by_lesslynn-d3h1p36Samhain is a time for reflection and to honour those loved ones who have passed on. As we approach another year we ask ourselves what it is we want the Universe to grant us. Surround yourself with positive thoughts and she will answer; neglect your inner peace and you will attract only hate. What do I want? I wish only the best for my friends, family & furry companions and for the world to cease hate. Dream your dream; make it a good one!

Dark Carnival

dark_carnival2I’m super excited to be part of Dark Carnival: Writer and Illustrator showcase organised through Pen and Muse and the very lovely Jolene Hayley who I met through The Zombie Project. Each Friday in October a new twisted and dark short story story/illustration will be uploaded for your entertainment around the theme of Carnival (hence the title). Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always found The Carnival to have a dark and sinister edge – or maybe that was being brought up watching horror films like ‘Killer Clowns from Outter Space’ and Stephen King’s ‘IT’ – you may now realise why I have a fear of clowns – they’re evil, evil I tells ya. Check out more details about Dark Carnival at Pen and Muse and which writers/illustrators have signed up.
