    October 2012 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Monday, October 8, 2012
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    Otherworldly

    Ghouls, ghost and things that go bump in the night. Old Hallows Eve, Dia de los Muertos and Halloween. October is the month where the veil between our world and the Other thins. So this month is about those things beyond our world, be they scary, funny or anything in between. Write wherever the prompt inspires you, fiction or non-fiction, prose or poetry. Do try and keep things at a PG-13 level, though.


    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you!

    I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn.
    Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete your post. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread. If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

    Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post, and keep in mind we're not starting until later in the month to give people time to sign up.

    What the heck. I'd probably do something on those themes anyway.

    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat. "Weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    Well, I'm back!

    Sorry for being gone a bit longer than I said I would, but among the souvenirs I brought home from France was a nasty illness. I'm mostly better now

    Million billion trillion thanks to Ralph for taking over for me; I knew you guys were in good hands I can take back over whenever you feel like it, though since you've got October all nice and ready there's no hurry. Might be nice to be a the end of a chain rather than the beginning for once!
