SHE WILL SHAKE THOSE BONES.
DON’T YOU KNOW YOU LEFT HER HUNGRY?
LISTEN TO ME. IF YOU WANT A HORROR SHOW
THEN I WILL GIVE YOU A HORROR SHOW.
DON’T KILL ANYTHING
YOU AREN’T PREPARED
TO MAKE A GHOST OF.
I want a serie about modern witches.
But not slut-witch or ugly-witch, not murdering monstrous witches.
I want mom witches sewing protective amulets in her kid’s clothes.
I want granny witches who brew a fertility potion for their unsuspecting neighbor who longs for a child.
I want cute witches who curse the college bully with a cold.
Modern witches, please ?
I’ve been pondering for a while about writing a children’s book about witches and stereotypes. It would be about a little girl and her fluffy, black cat following her mommy about. The basic structure of the story would go something like this.
Little girl says some stereotype about witches to cat, compares to mommy, concludes mommy isn’t a witch.
Ex: Witches make potions in their cauldrons, but it looks like mommy is just making soup. She can’t be a witch.
Witches are ugly and mean, but my mommy is beautiful and kind. She’s obviously not a witch.
And at the end the little girl says something like, “Well, I guess mommy isn’t a witch after all. What do you think, kitty?” And then THE CAT says, “In my opinion, it doesn’t matter. Your mommy loves you very much. I’m sure you could just ask her yourself.” then the girl goes over to her mom and asks her, “Mommy, are you a witch?” and then it shows the mom bent over whispering in the little girl’s ear and the little girl with a gleeful look of surprise on her face.
It would be called something like “A witch is…” or “What is a witch?” and it would be showing that regular everyday people can be and are witches.
Idk I’m still mulling over the details in my mind. May be this will take up part of my spring break and consume all of my summer break.
