‘NetNet: secret dungeon, Victorian cemetery, “giant” crab-monster, true ghost story with pic, horror / dark fiction writer & reader, and Flowers in the Attic.Posted: January 11, 2014 | |
EXPLORE A SECRET DUNGEON
One of my most frequent dream themes is finding a previously undiscovered room (or rooms) in the house where I live. I can’t vouch that the following story is true, but it’s SO cool if it is. Read: This Guy Moved Into a New Apartment Only to Find Something Weird Yet Amazing… (It’s really one big picture on a meme site, so I can’t share a peek.) Click though. It’s sorta awesome.
LEARN ABOUT A BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN-ERA CEMETERY & ITS BEES
I love that Deborah DeLong, keeper of the Romancing the Bee blog, often connects gardening and beekeeping with darker, but still beautiful, things. Read: Spring Grove Cemetery – The Victorian Way of Death.
WATCH AN ACCIDENTAL / NATURAL HORROR SHORT FILM
I am reminded of every giant-monster movie I’ve ever seen.

HORROR WRITER, MEET READER
HORROR DARK FICTION WRITER
Joanna Parypinski just made a subtle change to her blog header info; she changed the tagline to read “author of dark fiction” instead of “author of horror fiction.” I found the thoughts that led her to make the change interesting … and familiar. I’ve been thinking along the same lines myself since the new year came on. Read: Why I Write Dark Fiction.
REMINISCE ABOUT A NOVEL YOU PROBABLY READ BEFORE YOU SHOULD HAVE
Scoobyclue took me back to the days of my early adolescence with her piece on the wonderful/terrible Flowers in the Attic. Read: Back to the Attic. Then tell me, how old were you when you read it? (And did any of you “boys” ever read it?)
START A NEW HOBBY: PARTICIPATE IN #HAUNTEDPHOTOAWEEK
I know. It’s a shameless plug for my own project. But it’s gonna be so much fun! Keep an eye out for creepy / eerie photo ops; play with photo editors (if you like.) Then bring the results to one of the galleries. Click the pic for more info.
PS: Thanks, Tim Prasil, for this beauty – the first official submission to #hauntedphotoaweek:
There is no way I’m going to capture every great thing that happens in my personal web, let alone on the wider internet. The posts I feature here just happened to catch my eye. They resonated with me and whatever is going on in my life right now. And they are worth sharing.
