I'm a writer because I have stage fright.

Happy Halloween: Goofy Stuff to Combat the Fear of Death

I know this is the time of year when most people actually enjoy being frightened. For me, however, there is never a time or a place or a reason or whatever as to when/where I enjoy terror. Horror movies — and even Lady in the Water and the 1946 version of Peter and the Wolf — scare me sleepless. I do not find this the least bit enjoyable, as I am an advocate for adequate sleep. Also, I am a wimp when it comes to pain and blood.

So if you’re like me and you don’t like being scared, here are some goofy things to combat the terror that is Halloween.

My creepy cat who is cute and cuddly. :)

My cat is kind of a creeper, but she’s also cute and cuddly when not peering down at you from somewhere high above.

Look at these goofy pumpkin carvings. Mine is the “abstract art” (or a Sherlock Holmes pipe gone horribly wrong) pumpkin, third from the left. Notice pumpkin Olaf on the far right.

Look at these warty pumpkins and colorful gourds! Despite all the emphasis on horror, harvest time is actually filled with a lot of beauty!

Not to mention Halloween is an excuse to eat candy (buy fair trade) and here is a list of books turned candy wrappers (all the more reason to read).

If all else fails, remember horror writers can be funny too…
