Last week we turned through the dusty pages of Haikuesday to discover some new monsters in the forests of our minds. Here are the stories you had to tell:

Although I drew this initial sketch a while ago, I was pulling a lot of influence from the Wicked Library’s most recent episode, “Tunda” by Micheal Landry while touching it up . If you have some time and need an extra boost of inspiratu, definitely give this episode a listen: http://thewickedlibrary.com/806/

To Inspire You:

From the Pages of Doctor Phineas Ainsley

I only caught a
glimpse of the creature as it
fled the scene of its
hideous feeding grounds,
but a glimpse was all it
took to sear its visage
into my memory forever.

~Jeanette Andromeda

Created By You:

Last week you created some beautiful, melancholy, and sometimes hilarious haiku based on my Festering Artwork. Let’s read them, shall we?

I kept seeing this wonderful trend going around Instagram all about #Witchsonas and #WitchsonaWeek. There were beautiful characters being made and I jumped right in making a few Witchsonas of my own. But it wasn’t until a couple months later that stopped and asked myself a few important questions. What exactly is a Witchsona? And When is Witchsona Week?

So I investigated. And here are the answers I found.

P.S. If you’d rather watch a video explaining the art challenge you can watch it right here. Otherwise, read on.

What is #WitchsonaWeek? - YouTube
What is a Witchsona?

To answer this question, we first have to ask, What is a persona?

A persona is a an outward representation of your own character.

Which means a witchsona is a character designed around some aspect of your own personality with the aesthetic of a witch.

Now, I’ve seen witchsonas done many ways. Sometimes it’s not a personal character but a character built off of one type of plant or type of magic. But at the core of it all you are creating a new original character based around the clothing, magic and symbols of witches.

What is #WitchsonaWeek?

Witchsona Week is an art challenge where people design and share a new witchsona character each day for a week.

How did Witchsona Week get started?

From what I was able to dig up it looks like Witchsona week started on witchsona.tumblr.com. The blog stopped posting so someone, who was a fan of the art challenge, took it up and created a new blog to keep it going. So you’ll find the official prompt list for Witchsona Week on witchsona-week.tumblr.com.

When is Witchsona Week?

Ah the biggest most mysterious question of them all. When is it? Witchsona week takes place on the last full week of January every year.

How can you join in on Witchsona Week?

The easiest way is to add a hashtag (#) to the front of “Witchsona” or “WitchsonaWeek” on whichever social media platform you prefer. I saw the tag being used heavily on Tumblr and Instagram, but I also saw it up on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. So, create, tag and share away!

  1. #Witchsona
  2. #WitchsonaWeek
  3. #WitchsonaWeek2018 (or whatever year it is)
Want to make one of your own?

I’ve created a full tutorial on how to make your very own Witchsona! You can check it out over here:

Today’s piece is inspired by a true crime mystery.

Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm?

Back in 1944 a skeleton was found inside the trunk of a wych elm tree by some kids that were poaching on private property. Despite being afraid of getting into trouble, the youngest of the kids told about the skeleton which lead to its exhumation. Almost an entire skeleton of a young woman was found inside this tree. I say almost because the only thing missing was her hand. That was found a little further off all on it’s own apparently having be cut off. Despite some clear clues that should have helped identify her, such as hair still on the skull and missing teeth, police were never able to figure out who she was.

There are a lot of theories as to who she was and what happened to her. And this is where she gained her name as “Bella” instead of the usual “Jane Doe.” One missing person that lined up with her disappearance was a local prostitute named Bella. Some theories say she was killed by spies for knowing too much. Others say she, herself, was a spy, or that she was killed as a sacrifice in a ritual to create a hand of glory. We may never know. But what we do know, is that she was a least found. And that, even if we don’t know her true name, she has not been forgotten.

To Inspire You:

Under the Unflinching Stars

In the embrace of
the swaying wych elm, Bella
rests her head and grins.

For the secrets she
knows will come bubbling to
the surface again.

~Jeanette Andromeda

Featured Woman of Horror:

This poet and author of horror is a powerhouse of creating unsettling tales. A.F. Stewart is the featured woman of horror today. And I know I’ve mentioned her on the blog frequently, but I can’t recommend her and her work to you enough. She has a fantastic blog, publishes new books frequently and is forever promoting the work others create.

If you’d like to check out some of her work, I recommend trying out her newest book, “Ghosts of the Sea.”

If you’d like to give her a digital high five, you can find her as @scribe77 on Twitter, or on   her blog: afallonblog.wordpress.com.

Good morning haikuers! I appologize for the tardy post. I’ve been fighting with internet connectivity this morning as I’m traveling and workin’ with what I’ve got. And apparently, what I’ve got is my phone. My connection is better over data right now but posting from here means embedding your haiku the way I normally do is next to impossible. So what I’m going to do is share a couple of your poems and once I get a better connection, I’ll add everybody else back in. Without further ado-
