Some Like It Hot

I have entered my first writing contest.  Yesterday, I entered my first chapter of Sacred Mates into Tawny Taylor's Some Like It Hot contest. I was able to submit it in time for the first round, so I will only have to wait until Monday to see if I make it to the next round. I like the first chapter, so we'll see what happens.

I didn't do a lot of writing yesterday.  The husband decorated his friend's grave for Halloween.It was their favorite holiday. I have never been a fan of Halloween. Even as a child, I have been weary of "what's behind the mask". I'm a freak, I know.  Don't even ask me about clowns! So last night, he wanted to go see how it looked. Yes, I did say night.  He had placed some solar powered decorations. So I took a trek into the cemetery after dark. This presented a problem for me on two levels. One, I have an overactive imagination (Imagine that!). So I can totally find it believable that bad things could happen to you in a cemetery at night. Two, it's a cemetery at night, enough said! So I drove him. I wanted to be in control of the vehicle, just in case a zombie decided to come around a corner.

"Are you going to get out of the car and see it close up," he asked.
"Hell, no!" Does he think that I am that stupid, I could be the woman at the beginning of the horror movie that does a totally stupid thing (like going to a cemetery at night) and gets killed before the opening credits.
"Just so you know, you better have your sneakers on because if something comes out of the dark at you, you are totally on your own. I'm flooring it and leaving your ass behind."

Needless to say, he was not amused.

Have a great Saturday,


  1. LOL Now that's love because I wouldn't do it.

    Good luck with Tawny's contest.

  2. First disappointment as a writer. I didn't make it through round one. Oh, well. Onward!
