Here’s a kick. Halloween is the one holiday I absolutely adore. I get excited every year, probably more so than my kids who go run and hide because, “Mommie’s watching the scary stuff again.” I have the evil laugh down to a science. If I didn’t have to go to school I’ll watch the History Channel all day. They have the best stuff on Wiccan, Vampires, the start of Halloween. *sigh* Heaven. Then I’ll channel surf because all the best scary movies of all time will be playing. *sigh* More Heaven

Oh, and my favorite line of all time is:
It was a dark and stomry night.

And I swear before I die I’m going to find a way to put it in a book and it doesn’t sound cliche.

This post has nothing to do with writing. Just wanted to wish you all a Happy Halloween whether you celebrate it or not.

    I have “Snoopy’s Guide to the Writing Life”, edited by Barnaby Conrad and Monte Schulz. My favorite Snoopy first line is when Lucy told him to write an adventure story with a real hero type. Snoopy wrote: “He was a dark and stormy knight.”

    Lol. That is too funny. Putting a twist to an old cliche.

    It’s a fun book on writing. It has great essays, plus cartoons. And Snoopy has a lot of different takes on the “dark and stormy night” line.

    I love books on writing. I find it fascinating to see how other authors write.

    I see if I can find this one at my local B&B.
