I don’t believe in ghosts. But recently I have been watching a lot of paranormal movies and TV series. I have watched all the underworld movies. I have also been watching the supernatural series, vampire diaries, true blood etc. I have also read some horror books. I am planning to read the “Books of Blood” too. I have been doing this to gather some information. I also want to watch something that will really scare me, something that can give me nightmares.
Watching all these movies and shows and reading all these books has actually influenced my life a lot. I have started getting many ideas and I have started thinking about paranormal creatures a lot.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a werewolf? Though I have posted the article on pros and cons of being a vampire before, I like werewolves more. Not the weak ones they show on TV these days which can just turn into weak wolves, but the powerful ones like the ones in Van Helsing, Underworld, Silver Bullet, New Moon, etc. Powerful werewolves also play a big role in the sequel to my book “Living With Ogres”. Therefore I have written the pros and cons of being a werewolf below...
I am bombarded by fictional vampires every day. With the success of countless books (Twilight, The Southern Vampire Mysteries, etc.), movies (Twilight, An Interview With a Vampire, etc.) and TV Shows (True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, Being Human, etc.) I see vampires all around as I keep hearing about vampires and their lifestyles everyday over both the TV and the internet.
Yesterday was Halloween, I knew if I was to dress up as any creature I would have gone as a vampire, not only because it’s easy (all you need is a fake teeth – maybe a cape too if you want to be the “THE VAMPIRE”), but also because I like them.
This got me wondering what would it be like to be a vampire, will life be better or will it just be the same or will life be uninteresting. This is why I have a compiled the Pros and Cons of being a vampire below:-
Witches are very popular fictional characters. They can be found in many popular books like The “Chronicles of Narnia,” “Harry Potter” and various other fictional books. They can also be found in many movies like “Sleepy Hollow” and “Practical Magic” and in popular TV shows like “Sabrina The Teenage Witch.”
They are both evil and friendly witches. Evil or friendly, people still like them just the same, because everybody loves magic. Who wouldn’t like the power to create something out of nothing, using magic? Magic can help you get anything you want – your favourite foods, keep enemies away, fly, and get everybody to like you. Do you wish there was a school like Hogwarts to teach you how to become a witch or do you just wonder if witches, witchcraft and magic are really true?
Marshside is the place in which the ogres reside in the book “Living With Ogres”. Marshside as the name says is a marsh where Karen, Tom, and Anna the Steelchild Ogres live with Matt, Donna and Arlene who are their slaves.
It’s not a very nice place. The ogres are very mean and expect a lot of work from the slaves for nothing in return. There aren’t many living beings in the vicinity as the ogres have scared everything, animals, other ogres and humans, out of this place. It’s a very lonely place. Karen Steelchild, the ogre that runs the house actually likes this place a lot. She likes the loneliness she has created and the power she has gained over this entire land and she wants to keep it that way, but it’s a little too lonely for the slaves as the ogres and themselves are the only life they can see for miles.
An ogre is a huge, tall human like, fictional creature. They are known to be scary and evil. The word Ogre is French. It was first used was by French poet Chrétien de Troyes. He used it in his verse Perceval, the Story of the Grail.
When it first started out, they were always shown as big evil creatures in fictional settings that attacked and troubled humans and other beings. They got so popular that many evil people of the past have been called ogres. It’s also sometimes used in modern days. As time passed by, some ogres have been depicted as nice friendly characters.
I wanted to let you know that the first chapter of my children’s book Living With Ogres is out…
Matt has been serving the Steelchild ogres, as a slave for seven years. His life as a slave is really hard. He has to do a lot of work and he gets very little to eat. On top of all this, Karen Steelchild, the ogre that runs the house, makes life miserable for him.
His closest friend, Donna, another slave, doesn’t like her life either. She wants to escape and she wants Matt to join her. Matt needs to make a quick decision. He can either continue living his miserable life with the ogres or he can escape into the dangerous forest…
