I’m ready for Halloween.

Is that wrong? I mean, I know it’s only August, but, already, my mind has turned to images of carved pumpkins, cackling witches, and flying bats.

I’m a Halloween girl. Always have been. Always will be. Sure, some folks are annoyed that, as they do back-to-school shopping, they have to pass the aisles that are already lined with things that go “Boo!” at them.

But I’m not annoyed. I’m thrilled. I’ve actually already bought a ton of new Halloween goodies. (When it comes to these goodies, I am weak!)

I love to decorate my house (as early as I can) with my ghosts and goblins. This year, I’m planning to go very scary. ;) My son is six now, and he’s asking to make a haunted house. YES! I have long waited for the year when I could do a haunted house with him! My trick or treaters had better beware.

Maybe it’s because I write paranormal stories for a living. The Halloween season always gives me a boost and makes those words flow faster as I type.

Or maybe it’s just because I’m monster obsessed. I “relax” at night by watching scary movies.

Or maybe it’s just because Halloween is fun.  Getting to pretend to be someone else. Spooky stories late at night.  Candy corn. Ah, the wonder.  ;)

Are you ready for Halloween? Ready for some chills and thrills?  I sure am!

Happy haunting!

    In my next book, my heroine lives in what the natives call the Witch’s House. So as I read about your haunted house, I thought of that. Not that you look in any way like a witch. More like the young fairy godmother – with a twist. lol I could put you as a villainess in one of my books.

    I wish I lived closer to you so I could stop by. You’ll share pictures, right?

    Same here, Cyn. Love Halloween … although perhaps not to the extent that you. Weather permitting, I usually sit on the front stoop and carve a pumpkin while the kids come to the door for treats.

    It’s such a fun holiday for both children and adults. I look forward to it and unfortunately, my little darlin’ has decided that she’s too old to go trick or treatin’ anymore. :sad: I loved taking her. She’d be after the candy and I’d be after a beer or winecooler. :wink: In my neighborhood, I once scored three beers while going house to house.

  3. I love Halloween too! And fall! That’s the one thing i really miss since moving to the S. part of the US from the N… the fall! I’m def. ready for these upper 80 degree days to be gone!

    I like the jump out and scare you type of stuff, but that is about it. My sister liked horror movies and being 3 years older she would make me watch them. They scared the crap out of me. Do you dress up? I assume if you did, it would be something scary, not a princess in white, right?

      I love to dress up! Each year, I hold a big party for my son and his friends during the day (usually on a Saturday), then at night–while all of the party decorations are still up–I throw a party for the adults. ;) Love party time! And scary costumes are always the best!

        I have always wanted to go to a Halloween Party (adult) but never had any friends that had one. I bet yours would be fun!

  5. My husband loves Halloween. I like it, but I love the time of year it falls. Football season!

    I LOVE Halloween!! I’ve always wanted to do a big, fun haunted house! I remember reading years ago about special effects artists in LA that did a huge block size blow out an always wished I could do that. But considering how few trick or treaters my neighborhood gets, it doesn’t seem practical, though one of these years, I really would love to do it. Just have to settle on cobwebs, headstones and decorating my house for now :P
