Welcome to the October/Halloween Blender! |
This month's Blender Feature is something a bit different: the results of a little competition our own Galadrial put together on the Blender Board. The challenge: to write a lovenote to a famous monster. There was a good set of entries, and Gala's favorites (along with "the people's choice") are available here.
Last month was another good month for new works, as you can see by the front page picks below.
Have a great month, and try not to eat too many Snickers bars...

I have an odd sentimental attachment to the black GE phone I used
in college, and for a few years after.
together or not...
Jon's submitted well over 500 works to the Blender over the past year...this one is good in its reserve.
An odd, almost surreal, piece, but evocative.
- Briana Kassia
A musing on his inspiration.
Again, at Last
- Just Some Girl
I love the homage to nostalgia of the final stanza of this piece.
Life as a book.
THIS SHELL: Inside Out
- Elaine Loraine d'Orgain aka RennieLorca.
Compost has been much on my mind lately. Time flies like an arrow, and
Fruit flies like a banana, indeed.
