Day 2 #inktober2019 is Mindless, so I started thinking who hasn't really got a mind of their own? Frankenstein's monster although not the real fiend had his mind meet with. Anyway I was also watching vampires in The Strain get their heads cut in half and thinking they had no minds of their own either.. another drawing idea perhaps. #horror #frankenstein #frankensteinmonster #inktober #thestrain
Over in my professional life aliciaostar and I just pulled off a sweet little event about developing content strategy in highly regulated spaces. It was a real treat to be surrounded by other thoughtful writers in tech. These aren’t conversations we get to have often and it made me realize just how much I love talking about writing with other writers. Not about our memoirs or novels, but about the less sexy words we write so that they can be read and interacted with daily.
To aliciaostar who set the bar absurdly high for moderating with curiosity, intelligence, and warmth. I couldn’t ask for a better colleague, partner, and friend.
And to melskyburd who birthed it all. Unbelievable. Miss you and your talent.
Wow. This is turning into some weird Frankenstein’s monster of a wedding and award acceptance speech on Insta...I’ll wrap it up.
Extra big thank you to coco_and_penelope jessicabronson bathren caseyenglish lbrink01 for being our photogs and cheer squad.
This is all to say: don’t sleep on writing.

A little break from our classic horror characters, to a classic monster 👻 my take on a glam “Frankenstein’s monster!” I created the SFX cuts and used real needle and thread to see them up! Really enjoyed this look! (I pulled inspo from ella_ess_ ‘s green hand! And also gabxxrielle ‘s recent look).
