How to Create a Monster

Note: This has nothing to do with raising kids.

Next Friday I get to go talk to 2nd and 3rd graders about how I come up with monsters and characters in science fiction and fantasy. Um, how cool is that?
Seriously, I'm already thinking of the things I can say. But ... if you happen to have any great insight into the subject of monster creation, please let me know.

Of all the topics I could talk about, this has to be one of the best possible ones.
