Sunday Scribblings #22 - "The Monster..."

Inspired by one of my favorite childhood books, this week's prompt is: "The Monster..." (and you finish it as you are inspired to do.) Will it be the monster under your bed, the one under your child's bed, or the monster that was your grade three teacher? You could write about your favorite monster costume, a monster in your past, your favorite Muppet, your strange and scary pet, or the big shark that you met scuba diving off the coast of somewhere strange.

I realize that this prompt could also open up some dark scary places in your past or present life. Whatever monster you choose to write about, be brave. As with many things, monsters come in all sizes and shapes, but as this little book shows us - sometimes the monsters we believe in are scarier than the ones that are actually there.

AS ALWAYS - PLEASE add your permalink in your comments. Look at previous prompts to see how to do this.

Happy Scribbling!!

"The Monster at the End of this Book" was one of my most favorite books ever as a child. Seeing it posted here made me finally decide to take part last Sunday, but was too scared to post what I wrote. Was still too nervous to join in.

For the sake of NOT being scared...
