DAILY MONSTER 165
Good morning. How are you? Did you have a good weekend? I hope you got to relax and do something fun! For some of you fun obviously included writing some new monster stories. I want to say “As always there’s excellent stuff here,” but “as always” makes it sound as if I’m taking it for granted. I don’t. I’m a bit behind with sending out Thank You notes to each of you who posted stories, and I apologize. Please don’t think I suddenly stopped appreciating what you do. I’m just suffering from a severe case of third and fourth arm deficiency — let’s call it Bucher’s Disease. Or possibly Hyposhivaminosis. At any rate, I love the stories you’ve been sending. Once you read them, you’ll understand why:
And what’s that over there? Could it be Monster 165?
First off: Is this the same branch Monster 160 was perched on just a few days ago? If so, what’s up with that? It makes me wonder if 165 is as peaceful as it appears. It also casts a bit of suspicion on that third leg all of a sudden, doesn’t it? I’m not even going to speculate further, because I want to hear what you’re thinking about all of this. If you can eek out a few minutes, I hope you’ll…
Three more Daily Monsters are waiting after this one. After that I’ll show you the monster mural I’ll be painting in Seward, Nebraska this week. I’ll also keep you posted on the Monster book launch party at the Time Travel Mart on the 15th. And on April 1st I’ll start one more month of Daily Monsters to take us up to the UK launch of the book. So there’s a lot of stuff to look forward to.
In the meantime I’ve also put up a Flickr group for the monsters. If you’re so inclined, you can post your own monster drawings there, or photos of yourself reading the monster book, or sightings of monsters out in the world, or anything that you think is connected to the monsters. I’m a total Flickr newbie, so if you have suggestions how I can make the monster group more fun, please let me know.
