I trust y’all have seen this ad for the new horror movie. I can’t recall the name but the promo guys put an animated doll in a carriage to freak people out. 1) Can you say cliché?
But it’s effective I guess. I can tell you stories of a certain near collision in a toy store once. *giggle* Don’t tell Hubby I told you but he nearly ran *me* over to get away from one such devil doll.
Worse yet, let me warn you ahead of time, the darned thing pukes. *gag* You’ve been warned. Watch at your own risk.
Remember The Exorcist? Forget the creepy voice coming out of Linda Blair, forget the flashes of the demon, the pea soup scene nearly turned me off that movie. (deep pov can kiss my behind when it comes to vomit. I’ll keep reading/watching, but be damned sure I’ll skip that scene on a re-view/read. Period. *gag*) Aside from that, it’s rather compelling. *ducks*
But this creepy baby… No, I don’t think we’ll be seeing this one …ever. Anyway, let Freaky Friday commence!
So how is your new year going? Mine’s been okay. In some blogs I’ve heard people saying they’re taking stock, starting afresh. For me it’s a month of continuation. I’ve continued reading a book I started in November (remember, slow to read fast to write), continued (or started revising, whatever you want to call it) a manuscript I started November or December 2012, (finally finished draft one this past November), revised a manuscript I started in 2007, and continued work on another. See, for me, in writing, there never is any clear delineation–stop/start. Almost finished one? Time to start another. If I don’t have something to work on, I think I’d stop breathing.
It’s chilly this weekend, so it’s a good time to stay in and keep working.
So, what are you doing this January? Starting something or continuing?
And so for a little bit of writing news, I found a new review for Drawing Down the Shades, here.
I’ve got one up at Independent Bookworm (that I totally missed earlier, mea culpa), one at Epic Fantasy Author Tracy Falbe’s site Her Ladyship’s Quest, and today, I’m visiting Illusions of Intimacy. Tomorrow, Epic Fantasy author and all around fine gentleman Daniel Marvello is hosting me…Unrelated to the Magic Tour (but still for PSD) I was recently guest at author Diane Burton’s blog. Finally come Monday, (I had so much fun I had to do it again, *waves to Linda*) I’ll be on Other Worlds of Romance, on Blog Talk Radio–Monday night, in fact. So busy! Have a great weekend, y’all.
