Happy Man

Remember Halloween last year, when I introduced the Skeleton Man? Actually, I think he only got his name after that post, but in the meantime he has become a fixed part of my blog. The Skeleton Man, or Skelly as I lovingly call him, has his own page on Rebel’s Notes, where you can click through to read what he has to say. He’s quite a blabbermouth, spreading rumors about me that I don’t know whether I should own up to or deny.

Just look at that smug face!

When I started writing the first Skelly stories, it just so happened that I wrote it as a letter from Skelly to the readers. In writing from his perspective, I realized I can tell things about myself without really telling them. Does that make sense? Writing as Skelly, as him observing me, allowed me to share things in a lighthearted way. Sometimes I sat here giggling while writing the pieces, enjoying to crawl into his skin and watching me. I hope you enjoy reading the Skelly letters as much as I Skelly likes to write them.

  1. I love Skelly, he is just awesome! I think there is something very pervy and transgressive about a skeleton man and I’ll have to look up his stories and letters!

  2. So creative!
    and I admire your creativity when it comes to writing as “Skelly.” I think this would be a wonderful task, project for beginner or young writers (middle school or high school) to start writing using such a character prop. You’re so creative RM!!! Admire (and envious) of your talent.

  3. It is interesting how writing in ‘another voice’ but still about ourselves can feel quite freeing . I love all the images you have taken of Skelly and you, he looks very at home in this one


  4. Ha! That’s great! Yes, he’s certainly a lucky little dude too! I’m sure the encounter should breath new life into him. 😉

  5. took me a minute to find Skelly due to the lovely distraction of your breast and nipple
