Here lies #EleanorVance. Laid to rest by #ShirleyJackson whom now reposes alongside her. May these women rise up and reclaim their #cupofstars... Can you see where I am going with this? Quite clearly this is #graveyards for #circleofbookishfriends. What is not so #transparent is #femalekillers for #bookstaween.. I'm talking about the living and unspoken horrors- of times when being a woman could quite literally kill you. I'm talking of societal repression and the patriarchal bias. Stay with me. Eleanor and Shirley were creative, sensitive women oppressed by societal confines: by their gender. They had so much more to offer the world. Yet there were limits? How must this have affected them? How are we restrained today? So rise up and claim your cup of stars- live your dream (#beyourself). Because this is horror- and far more terrifying than zombies, demons, vampires or any other creepy creatures.
