When I was a child, I had a dream of being a veterinarian and a professional writer. In my mind's eye, I had it all sorted out: I'd have my vet practice in the east and I would work there 6 months out of the year.

As you've noticed, I haven't written in a while. I've been writing in my personal journal every day up until Monday. That was my half attempt at doing writing every day for National Novel Writing Month. It wasn't exactly a novel, just things that I did each day or what I was thinking about.

That's why I try to limit what I watch these days. And especially if the movie pays homage to blood … Continue reading Halloween Movies and Traditions
