'Among the most important writers of contemporary British horror.' -Ramsey Campbell

Friday, 24 October 2008

So, here goes...

Well, having set the damn thing up- and my god, do they make it easy here, even a complete computer twunt like me can do it unaided- what to put for that all-important first post?

Well, I could do the whole sententious 'welcome to my dark and mysterious world' shtick... and all the readers would die pissing themselves laughing. Can't be doing with that. Just because I write horror...

In fact, let's dispel a few myths right now, for the uninitiated.

Horror writers do not, on the whole, keep human skulls in the house.
Nor were we (necessarily) locked in the cellar as a regular basis as children. Or dressed as girls by our parents (unless of course we were girls)

There are more, of course, but you get the idea.

OK. So we've got that out of the way. What else?

Well, I could do some big poncey 'statement of intent'- as if anything I put on here is likely to be profound. Forget that one.

Or I could just try to be funny.

Emphasis, probably on 'try'.

Well, that's the first one out of the way.

I'll try to do something interesting next time.

But no promises.

Do something interesting! Chain yourself naked to a lamp post & smear dog food on your balls! Get Bernard to take pictures!

Go on ...

OK. Now I'm worried.

What does sententious mean. Is it anything to do with blood?

Simon said...

That'd be 'sanguineous', crazy fitter. Come to my blog and enrich your word power! :)

Sententious:
1 a: given to or abounding in aphoristic expression b: given to or abounding in excessive moralizing
2: terse, aphoristic, or moralistic in expression

(Note to self: WTF?! don't use poncey words like 'sententious' in future. Stick to knob jokes, you're good at them.)

Please Simon, don't go downmarket for me. I know some big words, like Constantinople and Superkalyfrajalistikespyalydoshus. ps. What does it mean when spellcheck screams?
