  1. Interesting how she covers the whole spectrum from benign to malevolent. The middle illustration in your article is particularly beautiful – so melancholy. Also enjoyed the zapping cockroaches though it wouldn’t tempt me to buy!

  2. I actually heard of this monster. A couple years ago a friend had asked me about a winter anthology and contributing a story so I plotted one out, but nothing came of it and I lost the motivation to write because I had plotted the story (which is how I found out I am a complete panster!)

    PS: I got your post card in the mail. Too cute! Thanks.

    1. Yay! I’m glad it arrived! Yes, she is a really interesting monster… hopefully some day your story can be recycled in some way!

    1. Thanks, Lori. Sorry I’m so late getting back to you! Still trying to get my blogging groove back. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, I love Japanese commercials. I think U.S. advertisers could take a few clues. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Oh, Heavens, don’t worry about that. I don’t get to half the places I should in a timely manner. I definitely agree about the advertising. So many of the U.S. commercials are boring or idiotic or both.

  3. Alex, I found this site accidentally (doing the A-Z blog challenge & you might have done it last year?) and fell in love with it. Your writing is beautiful, and offers so much. Japanese culture to fiction to writing & submitting & more. Love it all. Thanks for sharing!
