Hello everyone,

A new month is about to start and I am taking on the role of blog chain host for the first time. I'll be stealing shamelessly from my predecessor hosts so I hope you'll give me a pass for the blatant plagiarism in this post.

This month's Halloween inspired prompt is Masquerade.

I call it a prompt because I don't want to limit the directions you bloggers might choose to take it. You can apply it (masks, costuming, sleights of hand, etc.) to a scene involving a character, write a short story using it, apply it to yourself as a writer, whatever. Just have fun with it!

If you are interested in participating this month, scroll down to the reply box and enter your blog's address so I can add you to the list!

Each participant posts when his number is up. The first one will go October 1st.

Even if the blog chain has started, you can still be added to the end of the list until the month is over.

When it's your turn, you have two days to publish the direct link to your blog post in this thread. I will remind you when it is your turn two times (after your predecessor posts and, ideally, 24 hours before your deadline both here and by PM). If you are unable to publish your entry within two days, the chain will move along to the next person. You will be moved to the end of the chain if you request it (here or by a quick PM to me), deleted if you do not.

Your post must include the list of the blog chain's participants with the link to each blog.

The aim of a blog chain is twofold:

a) Have fun
b) Discover new blogs
This means that a true chain blogger reads and comments on the entry of the other participants.

Finally, two friendly pieces of advice:

a) Visit this thread regularly or use the subscription feature to make sure you don't miss your turn.
b) Try to keep your post under 1,000 words. Longer post tend to receive less attention.

By default, I'm just listing everyone in the order that they sign up. While I don't want a huge logistics issue, if you have a particular need to be moved up or down in the chain, be sure and let me know. I'll do my best to accommodate you.

Hey there!
Thanks for hosting this one Claire. A little break is most welcome (though I love ordering you guys around. *laughs*)

Please sign me up (http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/) but I would like to be a bit past the middle of the list; I have a lot of personal writing deadlines to meet for October 15th (including sending my first completed novel to Betas) so I'd like my turn to come up after that.

Thanks!

Orion_mk3, should I use the "Excerpt from Nonexistent Books" as your blog link?
Yep! I put it in my sig so I wouldn't have to keep typing (and misspelling) it. Really embarrassing when you misspell the name of your own blog, ya know?
