What the heck is this blog about, and what can you get out of it?  

Posted by Wishwords in

The short answer is: cool information to inspire you to write or read about legendary creatures that you may not have heard of before.

In each regular future post you will find the following things:

1. The basic description of whatever supernatural creature I decide to focus on. It could be popular or something less common.
2. The oldest information about the creature that I can find.
3. What scholars think gave rise to stories about the creature or what inspired it.
4. Any significant changes that the creature has gone through since its origin.
5. The modern version of the creature.
6. A short list of modern instances of the creature (books, movies, music).
7. A short piece of original fiction (by myself or a guest) that includes the featured creature.
8. An invitation to write your own short piece or create your own visual image and submit a link in the comments.

Inbetween the regular posts there will be:

1. Interviews with fiction authors who feature creatures and other interesting people.
2. Links to news stories, websites, and forums that discuss supernatural creatures.
3. Announcements of books, TV shows, and movies that will feature supernatural creatures.

I have been fascinated by supernatural creatures since I was very small. There are so many out there that most people have never heard of, and I want to remedy that. So please enjoy my obsession.

This is going to be a very interesting idea. Hope to see the first creature soon.

Thank you. I'm planning to post the first one next weekend. My goal is one every two weeks with the occasional interview or special item in between.
