The Thrill of Terror Shelby lubowicki

This week, we read the article Why We Crave Horror Movies by Stephen King. His writing stuck out to me because he talked about how we as humans crave thrill. I found it interesting how he related watching horror films to riding a roller coaster. I also enjoyed talking about monsters, especially the various interpretations of Grendel. When I was a senior in high school, I read the story Beowulf. While not paying attention to my teacher, I doodled my interpretation of what Grendel looked like. I called my mother to see if she could find the notebook that had my doodle inside it, but she could not find it. I put these two thoughts together and drew an (elementary looking) picture of a monster riding a rollercoaster. Though this monster is not exactly how I picture Grendel, it is still a monster. It also consists of the thrill of riding a rollercoaster.
