Marionettes are creepy (W1S1 update)
Seriously, look at those dead eyes. It has no soul! Now from souls to May stats (I know, awesome transition):
Stories written:1 (~2,900 words slipstream)
Stories submitted: 17 (several of these re-submitted or sim-subbed)
Stories accepted: 0
Well, got the one story written, but overall a slow month. Wanted to do some reading and editing, and while I did manage to toss out a couple stories that needed a bit of touching up, didn't get as much as I wanted done.
And humor seems to be in the air--or at least I hope so, genre-wise. I definitely think humor is one of the most underrated genres of literary fiction, and although highly subjective, with all the crap happening in the world, it's nice to be able to laugh. There's also benefits to laughing, such as reducing stress and learning (watch the whole video, there's some interesting psych stuff).
As for stuff making us laugh, I found some humorous skits on Youtube. Enjoy!
And because I can't resist throwing in something creepy...
(It's a mask + suit for men who like to dress as women... Unfortunately, it winds up being terrifying to witness.)
