Here you will find my daily journal of small stones and inspiration!
|If you could create your very own monster, what would it look like?
What would it be called? What types of things would it do to scare people?
Where does the monster live?
Tell me everything there is to know about your monster.
My monster is called McGIllicutty. He is green with black spots all over his body. Long, brown, unkempt hair falls over his shoulders. He has two silver horns on top of his head. They twist to sharp points on the ends. His nose is long and his ears point up to the sky. There is black hair that curls out from his ears. His teeth are large, sharp and yellow, they seem more like fangs than teeth! The knuckles of his fingers and toes are covered with brown fur, and the nails are long and can slice through metal with one swipe.
He lives in the caves just south of town. This is where he collects the bad children he finds. If he hears a parent reprimanding their child, he will sneak into the house at night and steal them away. He keeps them until they are sorry for what they have done. They must promise to never misbehave ever again! Oh, and he smells. The dampness of the cave makes mold and mildew grow on McGillicutty. He never bathes so you can smell his odor from the other side of town! HE peeks into windows on moonless nights and will move yard furniture around to warn children of his existence! The children try to behave as much as they can because they do not want to run into him. He holds them as slaves in his cave!
If he finds adults mistreating children, their fate is worse. He will disembowel them and leave them hanging in the trees in the town square. He has never been seen except by the children and no one has ever been close to catching him! This is one monster NO ONE wants to be around!
