May Monster Madness #6 - The Monsters In Me

Blog #6 for the May Monster Madness Blog Hop. Click the link or the image to visit the master post for the hop, or scroll to the bottom of the post to see the linky list.

There are monsters in me, metaphorically speaking, and I suspect there are monsters in everyone. That's not to say we let out monsters out, but they are there.

The Vampire

The leach, the bloodsucker, I know I have one inside. It comes out when I just want to take something and not give back. I don't think I'm a selfish person; I like to give, sometimes more than I like to receive, but there is that part of me that is selfish. It's part left over survival mechanism, part laziness and occasionally I have to fight against it to bury the monster back inside.

There's also the sexy seducer of men ... well men translates to my husband and that's all I'm going to say or it would be TMI :).

The Werewolf

The animalistic, wild side of the human psyche. I don't have to fight this one much, I'm not a violent person by nature, but just occasionally I do explode. Usually at this point there is just shouting, but occasionally throwing things comes into it as well. I think I've only actually done this a couple of times in my life, but beware any who push me that far.

As for baying at the moon and shape shifting: I'm a writer, we all signed up to be lunatics, but we mostly shape shift with words.

The Zombie

Rather than 'Brains!' my call should be 'chocolate!' :) I can't drink caffeinated coffee or caffeinated tea because they don't agree with me, so if I have a bad morning start I reach for the chocolate. I'm actually quite a morning person, but every now and then, after a really later night the zombie comes out ;).

The Mad Axe Murderer

You should read some of my horror based fiction - that's where my mad axe murderer comes out :)

The (Little) Devil

Now I definitely have one of these, but she doesn't get to come out much because there's an angel balancing her. My devil pokes fun at other people and laughs at things she probably shouldn't laugh at, but they never get to the outside because the angel points out how making fun would hurt someone and how so-and-so really isn't funny if I think about it.

My devil is more about slightly wicked fun like dirty jokes and innuendo than anything else. I have a very dirty mind; I blame my mother :).

So those are my monsters, do you have your own?


  1. I don't know if witch or serial killer count as monsters, but sometimes if I can't magically make people more tolerable I want to eliminate them. I can relate to the other monsters. Thanks for not sharing TMI about hubby.

    1. I think that might be a common want :). I think the best example I can think of it in fiction isn't even horror, it's fantasy in the Belgariad. There is one rule, you can destroy nothing but you can never unmake it and one character manages to goad another so much he utters the words 'Be Not'. Such a great moment.

  2. We will Not even get into the "Monsters" inside of "Stacey ( "Multi-presonality issues" can be an "interesting" thing to have to live with...) Let us just say that "Dr. Theda" is keeping the "Monsters" at bay for Now...

  3. This is a really cool list! I liked your take on each of these.


  4. Fun and entertaing write-up, bravo!
    First I thought: "Nah, I'm none of those creatures", but then I realized that I have a little bit of all of them in me :D

    1. Thank you :). I'm feeling a bit zombie-ish this morning ... 'chocolaaaaate' ... ;)

  5. Oh, I have many monsters too! Mine are a succubus, Hulk and Lady Vengeance ;)
