Creatures of the night: A journal dedicated to all things that lurk in the evening

Have a passion for vampires? Witches and warlocks who do their bidding under dark skies? Maybe you’re into zombies (who strangely I always see in the evening and not ever out in the day). Maybe you like elves and goblins. Howl at the moon anytime lately? This journal is for you!

Take a page or two or three and tell us why you like your creature of the night. Do you have a favorite movie, book, TV show, video game, poem, etc about said creature? Tell us about it! Anything goes so long as it fits in with the ‘darker’ genre.

Remember take no more than 2 weeks for the journal. Please keep up with the Bookcrossing Journaling if you can. This is a gift for my sister and if you could write her a note in the journal and on Bookcrossing. Her name is Sarah and she rocks.

Spelling and Mispelling: A Modern Witches Spellbook (Birthday Books Vol 6 of 41)

Grimoire, book of shadows or whatever you choose to call it, witches ancient and modern, real or imagined have been keeping magickal diaries forever. Why? For the very reason that secrets are made to be shared. Share your favorite mystical recipes. No eye of newt, please. The modern witch’s ingredients might be gathered by moonlight from her own garden but more likely can be picked up cheaply at the neighborhood grocery. I was raised with the admonition “a witch who cannot curse cannot cure” alongside the more traditional “and it harm none, do what you will” so feel free to include the voodoo doll kit for a stingy boss or itchy feet curse for the ex-boyfriend as well as dream magick and candle-burning for world peace. We witches are very versatile. Strict no no’s: morbid evil fantasies, dungeon and dragons-isms, satanism (Satan is a Christian entity, think about it) or “repent diatribes”. This is of, for, and by witches (and wannabe witches and modern witch enthusiasts!)

RE: Birthday Books vol 1-41. I was very excited to read about the bookmooch journal project as I usually celebrate my birthday with art/performance art madness related to the number in question. In August I will be a delightful 41 years wild. I have purchased 41 blank journals and am giving each individual themes. When all the wayward art has winged its way home to me, I look forward to a local celebration to share and enjoy these books with friends.

Post-Modern Witches Spellbook (Birthday Books Vol 7 of 41)

This is meant as an experiential tome rather than a how-to magick book. The idea is that the book itself IS magic. Art and play. Word/unword. Think outside the box. Live in the margins. Invent. Advise. Intuit. Worship. Dance in paper. See the movie “Prospero’s books” for inspiration.
