This month in the InMon Universe: Researched various writing competitions, read sample winners, and found most of them depressing. Then I discovered the To Hull and Back humorous writing contest. The winner’s face gets pasted on the anthology’s cover illustration of a person riding a Harley and holding a flaming quill pen. The contest creator then straps the book to the handlebars of his actual hog and rides it, you guessed it, to Hull and back, and films it all with a GoPro. The man is a genius. Bless him.
This week at InMon Central: They’ve officially named Arrival director Dennis Villeneuve to direct the first of the new Dune movie series! Could this actually be good? In other news, this is the first monthly InMon post. Feel free to continue writing weekly pieces if you like; though I can’t promise I’ll be able to read them all, I will still link to them!
This week at the InMon Boutique: Narrowly escaped buying a new bridesmaid’s dress by discovering one of the correct color from a previous wedding hiding in my closet. #winning.
In other news: next week is the first once-monthly set of prompts.
And now for our top stories:
This week in the InMon jungle: I bought a doorbell that plays amusing music. While at Super Walmart buying said doorbell, I saw a guy in a business suit. A business suit. In Walmart. I can only assume he wandered in accidentally while checking stock prices on his very expensive phone and was in the middle of housewares before he knew what he was about. Last I saw him, he had a new appliance under his arm and was looking perplexed and a little desperate. Poor, well-dressed man. I hope he made it out.
This week on InMon Island: Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events is fantastic. I’m only three episodes in, but it’s fantastic. So much more of the books than the movie had. Watch it. I mean don’t. So depressing. 🙂
