Reality check

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

Stephen King hands us another one this week, a little thought-provoker that I’d like to pair with a second thought from Clive Barker:

Choosing one’s path

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

A note to the wise: to all of us, beware what path we choose. For writers: this the ultimate key to a good antagonist. Thanks, Mary!

IMAGE: This is another quote-image that’s been pinned several million times to Pinterest boards. I found this file on–yet again–on the pinboard of Stephanie Girolami-James, this time via the “Horror Quotes” pinboard of Amanda Rios.

Its own kind of horror

The Artdog Image of Interest 

This month I’m exploring horror fiction in several of its aspects. Heading into the weekends, I thought perhaps a more humorous touch would be welcome.

Coping mechanism

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

What is the fascination of horror fiction? As we move toward Halloween I thought it might be fun to explore thoughts on why so many of us love to be scared by fictional horrors.

And where better to start than with a quote from the King of Horror himself?

IMAGE: Many thanks to all the many, many, many (many, manyMANY) Pinterest boards that feature this quote image–so many, I found 22,300,000 matches, and ran out of time to track down the original source. I found this particular file on Stephanie Girolami-James’s board, via Chelsie Bowen’s HORROR Pinboard.
