Monday Must Reads: Writing, Women, Mummies, and Christmas Lists

Happy Monday Everyone!  I’m madly trying to catch up on my NaNoWriMo goals, finish 2 more books this month, stop this cold I’m getting in its tracks, and still make dinner from a recipe at least once a week.  Here are the blogs that caught my eye this past week.  What else caught yours?

On Writing:

August McLaughlin wrote a beautiful post on Sweet Solitude: Creating Intimacy with Writing and Ourselves.  It’s a little bit about love, about finding creativity, and being a stronger, healthier you.  She also leaves wonderful ideas to get recharged.

Kristen Lamb serves up another batch of awesome-sauce in her post on publishing and author brand:  Beware the Social Media Snuggie – One Size Does Not Fit All!

Albert Berg is an honest man.  If you’re in need of a grip on reality and write goals, please read his post Nailing NaNoWriMo: Or Not.

On Women:

When Quiet offers us a breathtaking poem about the unity of women in WE.  You’ll want to read this one out loud, it sounds as powerful as your mind and spirit are.

True Life Stories:

Mindi Anders conducts part 1 of an interview with a Michigan Religious Cult Survivor and even the comments are interesting.  Mindi’s done an awesome job of healing herself by sharing her own survival story and creating a place for discussion on the topic.

Gene Lempp’s new edition of Designing from Bones is on The Iceman Plot, the true, or slightly fictionalized story, of a 5300 year old glacier mummy.

Kathy Owen shares the history of Thanksgivings Past from the New York Times in this part 1 edition.  How many turkeys do you think we go through now?

Social Trends of the Season:

Tiffany White blogged about a favorite guilty pleasure show of mine The Secret Circle.  Catch up on Cassie, the new witch in town and her five friends who bind a circle of witchcraft only to be found out by witch hunters and demons!  It’s creepier than I thought and I’ll be sticking with it.

Tiffany also blogged about another favorite topic of mine, Urban Legends.  From the tales themselves to the flicks that made them frightening, you gotta check this out!

Don’t lie, we know you’re already making your holiday gift lists, if not for yourself, perhaps Gift Ideas for the Writer in Your Life, and Pam Hawley’s got you covered.

Happy Halloween!

Hi ya’ll!  Happy Halloween!  Today’s post is brought to you by Dolly Parton!  And I’m just thrilled to be celebratin’ with ya’ll on All Hallow’s Eve.  Don’t you get to spookified, I’m here to guide ya and keep the ghosts away!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  And since it falls on a monday, I had a whole weekend to celebrate.  For starters, I went to work for Jess on Saturday.  I was a big hit with her team.  They made the credit goal we needed so I agreed to sing for them.  Popular requests were 9 to 5 and Jolene.  Two of my favorites!

Saturday night was the typical celebrity party.  You know, attend a live concert, well, at least I think they were…

     The usual music celebrities were there.  Michael Jackson, Prince, Amy Winehouse, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, and my particular fave, ABBA.

Mamma Mia! It's Halloween again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After a full night of autograph signing, I was ready for a lazy day at home on the couch.  The line-up included:  Halloween, The Addams Family, Practical Magic, and The Walking Dead.

To end the night, some great reads that say Halloween!

Tiffany A White’s Ooooh Factor gave an eerie review for The Boo Factor of the scream favorite film Halloween.

Sara Grambusch made a Halloween monster mash-up that talked craft projects, party foods, and even wine and candy pairing in My Magical Halloween Puree.

Albert Berg gave away his book The Mulch Pile for FREE in honor of Neil Gaiman’s All Hallows Read.  Be sure to get your copy of this spooky tale!

The Good Greatsby shared halloween stories from his creative children, The Fonz and Optimus Prime.  Fonz has got a secret and he thinks you’d like to know what it is in Saturday Hallowiener.

Little Miss Vix shares her Top 10 Supernatural Favorites including books, film, and TV series.  See if yours made the list or add to it!

If history is your thing, check out El Muerto: The Texas Headless Horseman by Catie Rhodes.

If you missed the final edition of Haunted Hawleyville by Pam Hawley, check out her last post about camping in the woods with her family, Visits from Jason and Freddy.

     That’s all for this Halloween, folks!  How did you celebrate this weekend?  Hope you all have a fabulous All Hallows Eve!  

Luv, 

Dolly
