Good morning. I hope the week has been kind to you so far. The weekend is once again upon us and we have but two more monsters left to go! I'm excited to see that so many new storytellers are emerging in the nick of time! And I'm happy that some of our great authors from early on are returning for the final monsters. Everybody is showing up with flying colors:
Also, please take a look at this bit of fan art by Ysa (5)---her version of Monster 53. Her mom sent this to me a few weeks ago, but it was wiped out along with a bunch of other e-mails during my well-documented tech troubles. I just received another copy today and I'm happy to share it with you now. Nice work, Ysa! Thank you very much for sending it!
Monster 98 is in need of relief. It's got an itch and it's got the scratch to cure it. It's Friday, after all. Everybody deserves a little sensory pleasure on a Friday. What do you think is going through 98's mind right now? What was making it itch in the first place? And where is it sliding off to?
Once again I will post my bulletin about what's up next:
As you know, there will be a book about this whole series and you can't get into the book if you don't post a story. So if you haven't joined in the fun, this is your chance.
Due to the nature of old school print media, it'll take a few months to get the book produced right. But I would love to keep you informed about the project in the meantime. I'll post news here at the site, of course, but if you like, please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll make sure you're the first to get the book when it becomes available. In fact, if you put yourself on the mailing list, I'll send you a custom monster desktop picture---full color and everything!---by the end of the week.
I hope you'll have a great Friday and that you'll have a chance to check in on the final two monsters tomorrow and Sunday. For now, have fun on your Friday night, be you scartcher or scratchee, and please remember that 344 LOVES YOU
