The past few days have been filled with a lot of joy and a lot of preparation for one of my very favorite days of the year, Halloween! The days to come will hold just as much if not more of the same. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
The fun began Friday with another outdoor excursion into the woods. The weather was so lovely, it almost felt like a real autumn as opposed to a Texas autumn.
The next day, I joined my friend and fellow author Paula for Royse City’s annual Fun Fest, where we sold books and ate corn dogs and just had an old fashioned good time. I even ended up running into some old friends!
I also got to explore the city a bit.
Yesterday was more low-key. I lit a fall candle, curled up with a blanket, and read my very first RL Stine book. I know, I know. I’m a disgrace to my childhood and to my genre. I love spooky things. I don’t know how I went my entire kid life without reading one of his books. But better late than never. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Books like his remind me of why I began writing in the first place. Books are just pure exhilaration. They’re limitless. And I love them.
