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.
READ A TRUE GHOST STORY, COMPLETE WITH PHOTO!
Here’s a real friend of a friend story: Matthew Alan Bennett has this neighbor, see … oh just go read: Paranormal Wednesday – girl in the window.
HORROR WRITER, MEET READER
Emily Einolander writes about beer and movies over at Craft Fear. This essay about what she gets out of horror caught my eye. Read, Why Just Eat Chicken When You Can Be One?
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.
