Favorite Time Of Year
Oh October. Love this month and this season. Fall is lovely and I wish for it year round. I also love Halloween though in the past few years I haven't really done much to celebrate it. Life always gets in the way and though really it's not a great excuse it is never the less what happens.
Halloween has also provided for some great inspiration. My zombie story was prompted by something that happened not around Halloween but by a friend. Said friend was given this story as a present for Halloween since it seemed the best time to finish it for her. It's the same story I've published here on my blog. Plans for celebrating the holiday are up in the air at the moment. It really depends on how the universe decides to treat me and how I decide to react to it. I'm getting geared up to try and kick it's ass into submission so we'll see how that goes :)
'The Haunted Life' first segement is nearly done. It's taking me longer than I thought to fine tune it but I should be done by the end of this week. As I type this I have my handy dandy red writing journal next to me and I'm jotting things down as I go along. So far it's pretty fun stuff, both to write and read or so my writing group has told me. Great bunch of people they are.
Taking a que from the A to Z challenge I'm going to make a little challenge to myself. The week of Halloween I think I'll do a post a day revolving around something that's usually connected to Halloween. I'll do the research on the lore and myths and write about it. A nice little seven day challenge, and I might learn something in the process which is always fun. Plus it might be fun to be able to geek out on a few things for a bit and not focus on my novel and story writing. It's times like that that sometimes provide my brain the best opportunity to wander and come up with new stuff.
