Halloween Decorating and Musings

Rubber Bat!!!
Short night, Dear Reader. I am feeling less on than I normally am. I think I need to unplug for the rest of the night. Strange mood. Not sure where it came from. So, I am helping the Hubs create a "Halloween Mood Table". Something he found on Dinosaur Dracula, a guru of nostalgia (particularly Halloween this month). Anyway, I need a bit of distraction to move out of this other worldly heinous mood.

This week has not been with its productivity, Dear Readers. So I will stick to the short re-cap for the check-in tonight. Done a lot of cleaning around and my house is mostly clean and presentable!! :-)

Run Down of the Week:
 *Reading: been making my way through American Gods (Neil Gaiman). Getting really good, so much so Oryx and Crake (Margaret Atwood), but that is a refresher read, therefore I am taking my time.
that I spend all waking hours reading it. Still in the early stages of
   *Editing: finally got a chance to look at The Audition, my silly and comedic look at auditions. Written for 24 Hour Theatre 2013. It's needs an over haul, BIG TIME. I started going through it line by line, thinking I could just revise it that way. Not so much. It needs to be re-written. I am okay with it, but I am going to have to spend some time working on it this week. Good news is that I figure out a slant I can use for the script and it will still have the same basic premise, but more organized. Basing the story off of some of my own past auditions and using a suggestion from David to keep the comedy edge. Although I admit comedy is not my forte.
    *Submissions: I submitted to one journal journal so far this week. If I can hit up two more by week's end I will be happy.
    *Blogging: completed my first Book to Movie review of the month for The Last Unicorn. If you are curious, check it out here. I have the next one in queue. The Little Prince.
    *Visiting/Social Media: check in with Twitter and my blog hops, at least three a day. I even caught up on last weekends slackery.

Theatre stuffs, shows, and projects are keeping me pretty busy this month. Might be  part of the reason that my writing has nosedived. Not sure. Not trying to worry too much about it though. As we of the Round of Words crew understand that this is the blog challenge that knows we have a life. Heheheh! And with Halloween around the corner, been trying to get into and enjoy the season. More pictures to follow, but see a bit of the early Halloween goodness at the Scott Household.

Also, Check-in with my fellow ROW80 bloggers here!

So what you what do to prepare for Halloween, Dear Readers? Favourite Halloween specials and/or movies? Favourite traditions?

I like Halloween and Halloween 2 and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Happy Pumpkin Month!!!


  1. To prepare for Halloween, we buy our kids' costumes. That's pretty much it. :)

    Sounds like you made some progress even if it wasn't as much as you'd like. I've run into the revise/rewrite issue before. And after rewriting, it was so much better. Sometimes that's just what's needed.

    Good luck with the rest of the week.

  2. Great progress - I'd say that's some good forward momentum. :)
