The wonderful Tara Tyler has passed on this award to me:
I'm going to go with Tara's Halloween theme because it was so much fun reading hers!
Here are seven Halloween facts about me:
1. Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. I love the costumes, trick-or-treating, and all the horror movies on TV.
2. I dressed as the Bride of Frankenstein in grade seven. It was a fantastic costume, but it took a few days to make my hair lie flat again.
3. We didn't have much money when I was growing up. When I was seven, I dressed up as a witch with a big black sweatshirt and a construction paper hat, and my brother wore a garbage bag with the word BOO! in paper letters across it.
4. In grade eight, I dressed as an accident victim and was complimented on how realistic my injuries looked. My acting was horrendous, though!
5. We lived on a street full of townhouses. Most families were young families and had lots of kids. We'd go trick-or-treating to over 200 houses and fill two pillow cases with candy.
6. I dressed up as an alien when I was eight. I wore an inflatable head on top of my own. I looked more like an alien totem pole!
7. When I was 12, I was told I was too old to be trick-or-treating. I was devastated. Now I'm excited to have a child of my own and experience the excitement with him.
I also received this award from the fabulous Summer Ross:
Thank you, Summer and Tara, for the awards.
I pass on the Seriously Cute Blogger award to:
I want to remind everyone that today is the last day to enter in my Journal Giveaway. New followers are welcome to enter too.
In other news, I finally have my new Nook Color. I love it! I've been playing too much Angry Birds. I need to read more. That's what I got it for. Yet those green pigs are taunting me. I must crush them!
I had a good birthday last week and a nice visit with my mother. It helps to have another adult around during the days to entertain the munchkin. My mom made me a huge Death By Chocolate cake. I'm still feeling it sit in my belly. I regret nothing.
I've been doing a lot of reading and critiquing lately. I have my monthly writers' group this coming Saturday. I submitted a medieval zombie story to be critiqued. It's a story that I've had short-listed three times and then rejected in the end because it's "too different."
I hope to have my current WIP ready to be sent out by the end of the month. I want to go into November and NaNoWriMo with no other projects. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for NaNoWriMo this year, but I want to try to outline first. I'm a pantser. I've never managed to follow an outline before, but since I have such limited time to write, I thought it might help me this year.
