Krampus : A being derived from pagan, possibly Germanic, folklore, he is essentially the antithesis to Saint Nicholas. He is the spirit who goes around and punishes the bad little boys and girls on Christmas night. He either eats them, transports them to hell, or drowns them, all while wiggling his chained wrists at St. Nick in annoyance.

Djinn : I LOVE DJINN. They are snarky and sneaky and cunning and witty… they’re so much smarter than the average human being, they have “infinite cosmic power” and they are beings from the spirit world. The Islamic translation implies they are beings of fire and smoke and are beyond the power of our industrial world.
For example the name Anna comes from the Hebrew name 6995 6968 6559 6969 6968 6997 (Hannah), which means "favor" or "grace". Transliterations of Anna in other writing systems include 957 957 957 995 (Greek), 6595 6585 6585 6577 (Cyrillic), 6879 6898 6898 6877 (Armenian), 9859 9866 9859 (Georgian) and 67955 67995 (Japanese Katakana).
You guys may be pretty tired of my ongoing “favorites” lists that I’ve been posting, but I really think these are some of the most fun and easy ways to discover new parts of horror that you otherwise might not have known. It’s created some great dialogue amongst us and I really think it would be fun to do one last “favorites” post… for favorite horror myths/beliefs/legends!
I can’t believe it’s already the second week of the month… I think NaNoWriMo has just dropped me into a writing hole that I can’t see out of. It’s actually really great, I love these moods because it’s not often when they happen. I’m sure as writers you all understand lol
Her life is cut in two: life before pregnancy test, and life after pregnancy test, and she must learn to cope with the indelible fact that she is her mother’s bridge daughter. Hanna goes on a mission to learn her own beliefs and values, from herself, to her parents, to God himself, and along the way she learns the gut-wrenching truth that sometimes there is a purpose to your life. And it may not be what you hoped.
But either way, it totally killed my numbers goal so I’m frightfully behind the 55,555 word mark. I think I hit around 85,555 and then just lost it 😦
Transliterate your name into Tibetan
But I’ll tell you guys all about that in my November TBR post 🙂 because, now we are back to the regularly scheduled posts on The Drifting Paige!
