Greetings monster lovers! Each year, starting on October first, a gaggle of monsters are set loose upon the world. At least, that is the hope. This is where we need your help. Each day during the month of October, draw, paint, write or make a monster in some way to share. It doesn’t matter if it’s good, bad or somewhere in between, we don’t care. Any efforts are welcome! If this sounds like fun and you’d like to participate, JOIN the monster making squad. Happy creating!

That’s a Wrap


Thanks so much to everyone who participated in this year’s Month of Monsters. You all created some truly fantastic and monstrous monsters. Bravo! If you haven’t seen all the wonderful submissions I highly recommend you flip through all the posts. Also, thanks to everyone who visited and/or commented on the submissions.

Registration is closed for the season, but comments are still open. Hopefully next year will be even bigger and better. Until then happy creating.

If you are itching for another monthly challenge, both NaNoWriMo and the 30 Characters Challenge are going on right now.

The End


Of this creature there is just one
It pounces when you’ve just begun
It marches along
And then it is gone
Once you are caught, you are done.

The Dreamer



And… done.

Herbleck on the Moor


Girls and boys, hark, do you hear
sweet music without your door?
Tis the Herbleck, on his pipes,
as he dances ‘cross the moor.

With boots of green, and coat of blue,
and pipes that silver shine,
come out, come out, come out tonight
and dance with me and mine

Boys and girls, get out your beds,
come, heed the Herbleck’s call.
Dance with him in the moonlight,
and never return, at all.
