There’s nothing better than welcoming the witching season by curling up on the couch with big bowl o’ hot buttered popcorn, some sugary goodies and watching your favorite horror flick on t.v.
But one can only watch Damien freak out in front of the church so many times before one becomes jaded.
Today’s spotlight author, C.W. LaSart, introduces us to the biggest, scariest creature of all….the sleep deprived, caffeine fueled horror writer!
BB: Using mythical creatures, popular movie villains, strange characters and any other weirdness your twisted mind can think of, conjure up what you think the next Big Bad horror villain should be.
Clearly the next big bucks, mega blockbuster villain will be the sleep deprived, caffeine fueled horror writer. Twitchy eyes, gnarled fingers from typing, messy hair and poor hygiene. Terrifying!
BB: What would you do if you ran into said villain?
I think I may BE said villain.
BB: You need to stand out from the other victims in the movie. What catchphrase would you scream as you try to run away?
Since I AM the villain, I suppose I will yell something as I run after them. Hmmmm maybe “Get in my novel, you bastards!” or “My muse made me do it!”
BB: The monster has you and your friends cornered. What do you do?
Once again, I am the monster, so I guess I will force them to read rough drafts until their eyes bleed. Or poke them with pens and pencils. Muahahahahahaha!
BB: What is your weapon of choice to fight the Big Bad?
If one wanted to defeat me, a nice box of chocolates and some expensive coffee would temper my deadline-driven, homicidal rage.
BB: What is the eventual outcome? Is your number up? Or do you survive (and if so, how does the ordeal effect you)?
Naw, I go on to write another book. And another. And another. It never ends…
