I've never blogged from my phone before and I must say, Dear Reader, I absolutely hate it, so this won't be long. We moved today. This is our seventh move in eight years. Some years we moved multiple times, and sometimes we spent multiple years in the same place. The latter were always the best.… Continue reading Blogoween Day 20 – Moving Day!
I should have written something today, but the day got away from me! In lieu of hasty, thoughtless prose of my own, I'd like to recommend some classic reads: "The Outsider" by H.P. Lovecraft "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson "Young Goodman… Continue reading Blogoween Day 19 – Freaky Fiction Friday: Recommended Classic Reads
This week is going by incredibly quickly and is very full of stuff and things and driving and moving and I can barely sit down to even type this out, so I am going to steal...FROM MYSELF! Way back in 2013, I made a giant spider for my front lawn. I loved that thing to… Continue reading Blogoween Day 17 – Witchcrafting Wednesday: Giant PVC Spider
That's it. Growing up. It's fucking scary. End of blog. Just kidding, I am way more long winded than that. Did you ever play "light as a feather, still as a board" growing up? In case you're unfamiliar, the game goes something like this: One friend lies on the ground, arms crossed over her chest… Continue reading Blogoween Day 16 – True Terror Tuesday: Growing Up
My favorite genre of film might just be the horror-comedy. I want to be scared and grossed out, and I want to laugh about it. These are hard to do right, I think, because they can't be comedies in Halloween costumes--no, they must first and foremost be horror films that are also funny. For instance:… Continue reading Blogoween Day 14 – Favorite Horror Comedy Films
I don't think there's anything particularly spooky about National Novel Writing Month except maybe the bone-crushing fear of taking on such a terrifying task or the horror of putting yourself through a grueling 30 days of writing to reach 50k words. But unless you're writing horror, or a thriller, or darker paranormal stuff, or real-life… Continue reading Blogoween Day 13 – Spooky NaNo Prep
Note: This is written in first person, and sounds a lot like normal blogging me. Though it's based on true events, it is, obviously, fiction. It was written originally in an attempt at the NoSleep style, part one to a longer story. Perhaps I'll continue, only time will tell, but I do think it can… Continue reading Blogoween Day 12 – Freaky Fiction Friday: Saber and Parchment
Happy Witchcrafting Wednesday! As a hurricane makes landfall just south of us and as I pack up all of our belongings to prepare for our big move (which I'm not sure I've talked about here or not yet, so surprise!) I managed to bang out another video. I have very few craft supplies at my… Continue reading Blogoween Day 10 – Witchcrafting Wednesday: Twilight Graveyard
Last night I experienced the minutest amount of weirdness as I was dozing off, and it brought back all the fear and horror that I experienced years ago when it seemed like almost every night I was having night terrors, false awakenings, and sleep paralysis. So last night I posted Vacancy very late, like 11:48… Continue reading Blogoween Day 9 – True Terror Tuesday: Sleep Paralysis
"Hey, kid, why are you so into all this macabre shit?" That's what my uncle asked me two years ago just about this, the spookiest, time of year. It really struck me for two reasons: 1) it's a very funny combination of words, and 2) wtf, for real @me "Why??" Mostly people don't ask me… Continue reading Blogoween Day 7 – An Introspection or Why Do I Love Spooky Stuff?
