Things That Go Splat!

The week of Halloween is here! I have my fake flickering orange and black candelabras going next to my creepy black tree and haunted house. My mind is on vampire and werewolf stories. My mini brains in a jar and Frankenstein minions are on the shelf waiting for homes.

Did you get in your parties while I was on my roadtrip this past weekend? I missed my family day of Halloween chili and pumpkin carving but something changes when the kids and cousins are all grown. No more costume contests. I did miss my mom’s cooking but I’ll get more in as the holidays arrive.

My Halloween week will be filled with Hallmark channel because I queued up the channel early. One of my traditions is to watch all the Hallmark holidays movies every year. I never get enough of the Christmas movies and they started this past weekend because it’s never too early for us holiday nuts!

Cozy, curled, and cuddled in my blanket with my laptop on my pillow as I binge on holiday movies is what I’ll be doing this coming weekend. In the meantime, Here is your word prompt of the day – Splat. Perfect for inkers and Halloween themed stories. If you write gore, I might not read it but keep up the pen and let your imaginations fly! Write for 5-10 minutes.

This week make the prompts more interesting by going with the Halloween theme! I’ll post again tomorrow!

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
