Shopping, Sunshine, & Site Progress

We’ve actually managed to have some fairly good weather here of late, which may have slightly hampered my writing progress. For example, Howard and I decided this Sunday to go out for a carvery for lunch.

I have to admit that it was a pretty good Sunday roast, but I didn’t manage to finish it all. Somebody had decided we were going to sit next to the window. He chose the seat in the shade and I ended up with the one in the sun, which doesn’t sound that terrible until you’re half way through a hot roast and you feel like your skin is melting off from the heat.

Baying For Blood, Work & Anniversaries

Do you guys like the new blog title list format?

A Ghastly New Challenge

As you know, @LadyAntimony has taken to giving out new fiction challenges every month. As this is October, the month where the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest, she’s decided on a ghoulishly good challenge to keep us all on our toes.

In a similar vein to the lovely Stevie McCoy’s Tuesday Tales challenges, we have set words to fit into our challenge entries. But don’t think it’s just that simple! They will be creepy caricatures of four different ghastly beings. The first three beings are set, but the fourth is up for choice.

As if that couldn’t be hard enough, Lady A has cranked the word count down to a difficult 250 words.
