Return of Monster Maker Fun!

Back in April, I did something that I called the ‘Monster Maker Fun’.  I asked people to give a list of nonsense words and I turned them into monsters, items, and fictional rituals for a week. Here’s an example that was given to me by John W. Howell last time:


“A majestic horse that roams the prairie of Southliver.  Most of them are white and brown, but there have been sightings of black, red, and purple colors.  Unlike other horses, the Meagain gives off an odd glow that is stronger depending on the purity of the spirit.  They are also much more intelligent.  People have been able to communicate clearly with these animals even without a common language.  Meagains are also good problem solvers and those in captivity have been known to pick locks with their narrow tongues.  Avoid getting kicked because they have barbs on their hooves that can deliver a powerful hallucinogen.”

Well, it’s October and I said I would try it again around this time if it was successful.  The week leading up to Halloween will be filled with posts that have the creations along with a fun music video that is spooky.  I promise not to do Ghostbusters, Monster Mash, and all of the usual suspects . . . except Thriller.  One should ALWAYS listen to Thriller on Halloween.

Anyway,  I hope everyone will participate in the fun and maybe pen your own challenge on your blog.  See what you can do with nonsense words on any topic.  Doesn’t have to be monsters, so just have fun.


  1. Please only supply 1-4 words.
  2. By nonsense words I mean make them up.  This was some early confusion last time.  Just toss letters together to create coherent, but fictional words.
  3. I’ll be linking to your blog to give you credit for the word.
  4. Have fun

    Another fun exercise by the master Charles Yallowitz. Make up a word and challenge his brain.

    So I totally did end up reading the other one at the same time as this.

    Let’s see . . .

    Making up words is one of my favorite things to do for books. Really love it. I figured I’d give you some ridiculous ones. XD
