Hello, November

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you all had a spooktacular Halloween filled with fright, laughter, and small children requesting candy on your doorstep.

A few girlfriends and I celebrated by dressing up, eating a lot of junk food (and one surprisingly delicious organic and gluten-free pasta dish) and watching Hocus Pocus, only the greatest Halloween classic of all time.

Here’s what I looked like:


At first, I’d intended to go as a zombie, but then, I found this old veil that my sister had used for something, so I decided to go as Grace, the ghost bride from Cemetery Tours.  How cool is it to be able to dress up as a character from your own book?

After a super successful Halloween, I dove right into #NaNoWriMo.  Well, first I drove out to Fort Worth to hang out with my BFF, but then I dove right into #NaNoWriMo.  I’m happy to announce that I have since earned my 5000-Word Badge.

Remember, the book I’m working on is NOT another Cemetery Tours installment.  I am working on that as well (Chapter 12 is actually about to make me cry… It’s really sad…), but this #NaNoWriMo project is something that I’m working on strictly for fun and my own entertainment.  If I like it, then yes, I will probably publish it, but I haven’t decided whether or not it will be under my own name or my super secret pen name.

Finally, Halloween may have come and gone for another year, but ghost stories are fun to read all year round!


Happy November, everyone! How are your #NaNoWriMo projects coming?

  1. I got off to a slow start the day after Halloween because of a candy hangover (not really), but yesterday I made great progress. Of course, today was Monday so nothing went right, but let’s hope I can make progress later in the week 🙂

    On the note of you dressing up as your character – can you imagine if you went to some convention and saw other people cosplaying as your characters??? That’d be something!

    • Oh my gosh, seeing other people dressing up as your characters would be the BEST! Actually, I had a group of really talented theater and film students make me a book trailer for my first book and it was SO COOL!

      I’ve gotta be honest, I think I STILL have a Halloween Weekend Hangover…

  2. Love the costume! I had two friends choose my characters to dress up as for a creative writing assignment in high school. Coolest thing this side of the coast, I swear! Such a weirdly nerdy rush. 😛

    Congrats on the word count. I hit 5k today too, but I’m winging it so I am fairly certain I will be running out of steam soon. Hopefully not, though.

    Also? Can’t wait to see this new super secret squirrel you got going on come to light. 😀

  3. The Grace bride costume looks awesome. I have enjoyed giving candies to kids in front of the door. My Dad also pitched in to help. I’m glad you’ve had a happy Halloween with your friends. Best of luck! 😉
