It Was the Moon

Driving home last night, I couldn’t help but notice how orange the moon was.

I could only see the lower half of it, though it looked full.

It was amazing, really.

I watched it as I drove, always further away no matter how many miles passed going toward it.

What really drew me toward it was the orange, though. I kept thinking that if there was a moon in the Ascanati world in The Monster in My Garden Shed, then that would have been what it looked like.

I tried to take a picture of what I saw, but unfortunately, I don’t have the right camera for that kind of thing.

Perhaps Art Will Inspire Fic…

I am not an artist.

I acknowledge that.

Still, I have this piece here that I did a quick computer colorization of, and so… let us play us a game?

It could be fun. Tell me what this picture makes you think of. (If the colors interfere, I can put the black and white version up, too.)

Anything you think of, feel free to tell me. If you have… say, a story idea… Maybe you can inspire fic.

If you do inspire fic, then you could possibly get…

  1. a dedication
  2. a free copy of the story as an ebook in the format you choose
  3. a free copy of the print version

And, of course, everyone will see the story. Forgot to mention that.


Feel free to critique the drawing as well. I am not an artist, after all.
