How's it going my gumdrops? I would've mentioned this much sooner, but as usual my schedule has been hectic.
As I checked my Google Plus news feed on Monday, I discovered that Susan Leighton (a friend and subscriber from here) was nominated for the Liebster's Award. Susan published a blog about her nomination on Monday. In that same blog, she chose to pay it forward.
Learning that she put me up as a candidate for the Liebster's Award is quite an honor. I really appreciate it, Susan. Thank you!
What I find really interesting is that Susan gave me the title of Webmaster. I never really considered myself a Webmaster. The more you really think about it, I really am. I normally consider myself a Writer/Blogger/Content Creator/Website Owner. Nobody manages It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns other than yours truly.
Managing a blog dominated website is NOT the same as simply publishing a blog on a blogging platform. I built It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns from scratch using a free website builder. Also, I created 1 extra page specifically for excerpts of my Short Horror Stories.
Speaking of Short Horror Stories, if you are already a member here and have yet to do so, you should sign in and read my Horror page because you will NOT be able to view it from the outside.
While talking to Susan Leighton last night on Google Plus, she told me that she read my Horror page. Across The Street and The Horrors Of Womanhood seemed to have caught her attention. I am really glad that she managed to catch the dark humor in the excerpt I posted from The Horrors Of Womanhood.
The Horrors Of Womanhood is somewhat of a misogynistic, Short Horror Story with some elements of Dark Humor. Dr. Wiener (the protagonist) is like an antagonistic main character. This character has a grisly backstory of his womanizing mother abusing him.
Dr. Wiener caught his mother cheating on his father with a woman in bed growing up and was physically abused for it. This description sounds more like something from a Jerry Springer episode. However, The Horrors Of Womanhood is dark, horrific, and disturbing.
When I was in the middle of writing this story, I imagined Al Bundy's personality from Married With Children meets Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. You ALL know how creeped out I get watching Christian Bale in American Psycho. Patrick Bateman makes my skin crawl.
Because it has been a while, since I last read my own short story, I cannot remember if Dr. Wiener threw his nurse or another patient of his through a window. Yes, The Horrors Of Womanhood is quite grisly.
It is already traumatizing and painful enough getting shanked by the gynecologist.
Just imagine having a misogynistic male gynecologist, who takes sadistic thrill in torturing women because of his mommy issues.
I will end today's painstaking topic, right here. Hopefully, no children are reading this site, much less today's blog.
Anyway, thank you my gumdrops! Don't forget to like, subscribe, share, +1 on Google Plus, and leave your feedback in the comments section below!
