I know, two posts in two days. Please don’t have a heart-attack. I’ll lose half my readership. 🙂 Looking for writing ideas but you don’t want to deal with the really dark or dramatic story line? Need a little humor in your life? Take a scary object or idea and make it lovable. Think Twilight. Think Monsters Inc.. I’m going to use the latter as an example because Stephanie still manages to have drama.
Everyone has dreamed of monsters in their closet or under their bed. Kids the world over can’t sleep without a light of some kind on. But Disney and Pixar took this common fear and turned it into something funny and mundane. They don’t do it because they want to eat you, it’s just their job. And it turns out they are more scared of you than you are of them because they think if you touch them they might die.
In Twilight, the dark and deadly Vampire turns into a hunk of smoldering sexiness. Oh there are scary ones out there, we come to find out. But the Vampire and then the Werewolf become objects of obsession for girls and women everywhere. I’m shaking in my boots.
This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*
