Happy Halloween and Friday Five for October 31, 2014

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

1. What sort of scary good fun are you having today? My son is really excited. He'll have a party at school and then go trick-or-treating with his best buddy this evening. (If it isn't raining!)

2. Another good writing week. I'm one-sixth of the way done my third and final D&D novella. This one is from the guy's POV, so I've been pestering my husband with a ton of questions!

3. I did some critiquing and wrote up two short skits about bullying for a friend of mine. It's a bit strange for me to write for an eight-year-old audience. I tend to fall into quirky Harry Potter-like prose when I do. But since this was a serious subject, I had to keep it realistic. A good writing exercise.

4. I'll be absent from the cyberworld next week as my mom is visiting. We'll get our Christmas shopping done early. I still have my IWSG post ready to go for Wednesday along with a fantastic guest post by Carol Kilgore on Monday, and the second week of November is Realms Faire. Huzzah!

5. Thank you to everyone who entered my Creepy Freebies giveaway and to all who helped promote it. Thanks to the participating authors for all the awesome free reads. My Kindle is packed with scary stories. A final big thank you to Milo who organized it. I can't wait to do it again next year!

  11. You son is cute; looks like you'll be having fun. I will be passing out candy, as usual. Hope I have enough, as my 16 year old has been raiding the stash this last week.

    Have a good week with your mom.

  12. Do kids let rain hold them back? I think I remember going out in the rain when I was a kid, but my mom probably discouraged it. ("You'll get SICK!") I know our local malls have trick or treating sometimes, so that might be an indoor option if it rains.

  13. Good luck with the writing. I'm wrapping up a WIP that's in the editing stage. Such a good feeling. Just have to keep plugging along.

  14. Have fun Christmas shopping, I wish I could get mine all done that quick. It's nasty here too, so I think that's going to put a damper on a lot of people's fun tonight. =/

  15. Thank you, everyone. The cold dreary weather didn't cancel Halloween. My little guy went out with his buddy and came back full of candy! Have a terrific weekend. :)

  21. My Halloween fun involved alcohol. But then, some of the better things do. ;-) Your little guy is adorbz; about a week ago, I visited my "little guy" up at college and, among other things, we visited the cemetery on campus! Never thought such a thing would provide a fine mother/son bonding opp, but it totally did. :-)
