The last two years, I’ve done something called Monster Maker Fun. This is a fun thing for October that lets me flex my imagination while those who submit names get to see what comes from them. I give credit with blog links too, so you get a mention that might bring a little traffic.
I’m going to do it again this year if I get enough requests. This will go in conjunction with Raven’s Game, which will be an evening release. Monster Maker will be done every Monday, so it won’t be too crowded in terms of posts. Another thing with this year is that I’m going to try and keep them to chimeras and fairy-types to connect with Charms of the Feykin.
So, how does this work?
- You give a list of 1-5 fake words/names in the comments. For example, Bobar and Druidate from last year.
- I spread them out among the chosen days and come up with a paragraph explaining what they are and what they do.
That’s really it. Fairly simple once you get your first fake name/critter made. So, submit in the comments and we’ll see what’s born this year.
