T’is October, the month ended by Halloween – or Samhain if you’re a Wiccan or Pagan – the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world is at its thinnest.
Well, I don’t know about that, but what I do know is I’m taking part in a collaborative Halloween story over on Stephen King’s official message board, hosted by his PA, Marsha DeFilippo and webmaster, Jordan. Twenty of us are taking part, each of us with 24 hours to write 500 words of a story. Not too difficult until you consider that you have to follow on from what the person before you has written. 24 hours suddenly doesn’t seem so long!
Anyway, Robert Gray has got the story off to a fantastic start, and my instalment is due on about the 20th. If you’ve got time, pop on over and have a read: Halloween Story 2008.
