Dear Spider On The Ceiling Of My Kitchen

I know I am about a million times bigger than you (do your multiple eyes allow you to comprehend our size difference?), I produce loud obnoxious noises (do you even have ears?), and I appear to have the powers of a goddess by turning on and off the sun (okay, that one's real), but I… Continue reading Dear Spider On The Ceiling Of My Kitchen

Blogoween Day 29 – Halloween Playlist

So I'm forgoing Vacancy for another week because moving has been a bit more overwhelming than I expected, and I'm still trying to get prepped for NaNo properly before November hits. I'm confident I can release Vacancy during NaNo, but right now it's a crap shoot. I do have my kitchen mostly organized though, and… Continue reading Blogoween Day 29 – Halloween Playlist

Blogoween Day 23 – True Terror Tuesday: A Haunting in St. Pete

I've always been leery of public restrooms. There are plenty of reasons to be: they're a room full of doors with typically only one way in and out, and when inside you're at your most vulnerable. But I've also always had a tiny bladder, so more often than I wish, I've found myself in dimly-lit,… Continue reading Blogoween Day 23 – True Terror Tuesday: A Haunting in St. Pete

Blogoween Day 9 – True Terror Tuesday: Sleep Paralysis

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

Blogoween Day 5 – Freaky Fiction Friday: Best Friends

  Best Friends Marianne is my best friend. We’ve been together since the beginning of time, or at least it feels that way since I can’t remember an instance from before we met. When we were very little we would play most of the day and even sometimes at night when we were meant to… Continue reading Blogoween Day 5 – Freaky Fiction Friday: Best Friends

Blogoween Day 2 – True Terror Tuesday: The Spirits of Bourgeois Swamp

Let's start light, shall we? Oh, and if you'd like a little ambiance, I created a fun haunted house-style mix over at Ambient Mixer. A few years ago, Husband and I were living in New Tampa, Florida which isn't a real place, it's just a bourgeois name some wealthy but uncreative people came up with… Continue reading Blogoween Day 2 – True Terror Tuesday: The Spirits of Bourgeois Swamp
