I’m sure I wrote a post similar to this one, some time back. I can’t remember the title—sad, isn’t it? It had to do with a Children’s Literature class I took a couple of years ago. I submitted “The Dark Place” as one of my assignments, and some of the readers (perhaps the professor, too) nearly suffered a stroke.
There was a lot of talk after the reading… “Children don’t act like that,” some said. “Who would let their child read something that horrible?” I overheard. “That’s a very creepy kid. I like her!” And my favorite, “Please tell me we’ll get to see her and her personality develop into something that keeps jerks up at night.”
I find the human child in “The Dark Place” a bit disturbing, but I doubt that my feelings are founded on the same reasons. Yet, my fascination with creepy kids—I blame (or thank?) The Shining and Ju-On for that—is not the point of this post, so I’ll move on. I just wanted to inform those who follow Thorn in Red, that our sweet and cute tale is slowly turning sexy, dark and bloody. I mean really dark. The other day, I kind of scared myself… And you know what? I liked it ;-)
Now for Some General Updates:
1. I’m almost caught up, after having lost a bunch of words.
2. The blog maintenance work is coming together (slowly but) nicely.
3. I will spend the next few weeks tagging and categorizing. Speaking of categories, what do you think about the five categories I’ve chosen? On Writing, Reading, Stories and Poems, Various Topics, and Witchy Bits; are they descriptive enough, or can you think of better ones?
I’ve also made a new Pagan Culture button. No html code, my Wicked Darlings, just a picture.
Grab it and decorate your sidebar, if you’re into that sort of thing.
If not… well, just enjoy my supreme mastery of Photobucket’s editing tools *cough, creepy grin, cough*
