To Avoid Confusion...

I was invited a few weeks back to blog with one of my critique groups, so many of my writing posts are on the Dreamweavers site, but I'm linking them to this blog as well.

So, don't get confused. I'm not blogging the lazy way, but just linking other peoples' posts here, if you see a Dreamweavers post, it's still mine :)

Have a fantastic day, and thanks for stopping by!

My Twist on an Old Favorite

This year, I've twisted Paul's arm and gotten him to dress up as the big bad wolf. I'll be Red :D
But there's no skirt for this girl, no sir. I'm wearing pants, and boots. This Red is a little tougher, but still...she gets caught by her wolf.

I think...yes. I think the big bad wolf will catch me, and I'll become his. I want to find rope to tie around my waist, so he can hold the other end, so he doesn't have to run after me again :)

So that's us this year.

Kids? Oh, yes. I have some, and they're dressing up too. They amaze me and crack me up. Here's the run down.

Christopher: Vampire....with sparkles. Hmm...wonder who he's trying to win brownie points from?

Emma: Katniss from Hunger Games. Looking for brown wig. Do you know they don't have any at WalMart?

Alta - Seizure Girl - it's a superhero we made up when she was diagnosed with epilepsy in May. Now she has a costume, and I must's pretty stinkin' cute. I had to sew...only poke myself with a pin once. I'm pretty stoked. Zeus is part of her costume - lucky dog!

Carter: he was just happy (by happy, I mean thrilled) to be Bumble Bee from Transformers. Nice and easy - no sewing involved.

Sirius still has a cape from last year, but I wonder what else he could be, to compliment Paul and I...hmmm...I'll have to give it some thought.

Anyway, that's how we're rockin' Halloween this year!
How about you?

Halloween Time!

It's one of my favorite times of the year. You can dress up however you want, and no one cares! "It must be their costume," they say. Or, "It's a little early, but still, it is October." Of course there's always one or two people you run across that have no idea what the big deal about Halloween is, and they look at you funny.
We just ignore them. Maybe they grew up too fast and forgot how to be a kid, so we keep moving on.

One of my favorite costumes and Halloween memories would be my vampire pixie costume :)
My first attempt at writing a novel brings a fae woman and a vampire together. If they had a daughter, she might have looked like I did then. I drove to the haunted house my brother-in-law put together to help. On the way there, I stopped for a red light (you're supposed to, you know) and two little girls in the car next to me looked over. Their eyes lit up and they waved.

I waved back, and smiled. They were momentarily shocked at the fangs, but then broke into laughter. Their dad didn't get it.

Speaking of fangs...I had a dentist appt in October. Wore the fangs. One of the ladies there helped me put them on before the doc came back. He was a little surprised to say the least. Now they're curious every Halloween, what I'll show up in next.

This year, you'll have to wait and see, but not too long. It's in the next post.
Happy haunting everyone!

I love my kids

I may have warped them long term, but they sure are fun.
As you know, I've been writing. I play with vampires and shifters, fey and Otherworld. We have fun.
Today, Alta saw my desktop wall paper - wolves. Here's our conversation:

Her: Mom, who took those pictures?
Me: I did (she knows I didn't)
Her: While you were out vampire hunting?

Aren't my kids great?

Guess Where I'm Posting From?

The car! Using my hotspot and my mini, I'm typing away and sending this morning! And yeah, it's early. There's a reason for that, I assure you!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Happy Monday!
