I’ve just dropped my wife off at work, laden down with arm fulls of homemade Halloween treats. Highlights include demon claw cookies, cupcakes with spiders and worms and my personal favourite – chocolate covered eyeballs.
Yesterday was a productive day, especially considering it started with a 16km run in the rain. After launching the blog, I finished the final draft of a new horror story, Amber, and submitted three stories to editors. That means I have twelve stories out in the wild although a couple of those have been out there so long they’ve probably been eaten by something nasty by now. No new words though, other than yesterday’s blog posting and a few changes to Amber. Tonight we’re going on a Haunted Halloween tour of Vancouver so no writing today either. Perhaps the “gruesome tales of troubled ghosts” will provide me with some inspiration.
