November 1. The beginning of the Season of Dark and the new year on the Celtic calendar.
Last night, we had a great time going trick-or-treating. Man actually walked with us (I think he was feeling protective) and the kiddo ended up with a bunch of candy. We got back to the house and handed out candy for another two hours. I used the fog machine and it worked fairly well. Not as well as I’d liked but it was only a 400 watt one. Maybe next year I’ll splurge for the 1000 watt one. 🙂
I went through the kid’s candy to make sure there wasn’t nothing unsavory in there. What I found was a full size can of Dr. Pepper and a bag of microwave popcorn. I thought that was hysterical.
I’m currently doing a read-through for a friend. It’s urban fantasy and it’s fabulous. I’d like to do NaNo this year but I don’t know if I can make the 50k word count by the end of the month. Maybe I’ll give it a try and draft the second book in my new series.
