And Now For Something A Little Different


National Novel Writing Month, am I right?

I wish all of you writers seeking to destroy, nay annihilate, that NaNo Monster one word at a time, the very best. You got this. If you want this. I’m right there with you.

But this post I would like to share something that indeed has much to do with the fact that we sit for long periods of time, doing what we love to do. Writing. I speak of the fact that we writers, again, for periods of time that vary greatly in length are in a stationary position 100% of the that time. We also tend to drink coffee-duh-sodas and as many of you say nosh on various good, e.g, candy, popcorn, Mr. Goodbar’s…sheesh I’m getting hungry just typing about it.


These are symptoms. The diagnoses? Writers.

Pemberton Returns to the Forest That Screams

When we last saw the boy he was waving good-bye to his family in the ville,

the thought of them afraid of the dark, well it just made him ill!

His story continues with a little poem of sorts

never mind the ghastly GrumGrum beast’s snorts.

Tonight’s the night the ghouls and superhero’s feast!

On treats and goodies, some candy corn…at least.

They will come to the door, and don their disguises,

and better for their candy bag, if they should surprise us.

But one young man, oh, he has no joy.

He has no plan of action or ploy.

See  though it be Halloween this night,

And the spirits about will come out to fright,

Lil Pemberton is not smiling, no he is down, he is forlorn

his spirit is remiss, yes, oh yes, it is torn!

for tonight is the last night he can sit and be free

Underneath The Juniper Tree.

The October Issue is going away, along with the dead,

and Pemberton is filled with such dread.

“But wait, young boy,” eerie voices team,

“Remember when you first walked into the Forest That Screams?

There is no need to cry, or pout,

or whine or to shout…”

The voices drew closer and ever closer still

The kind that could be break even the strongest man’s will.

It then continued in it’s haunting, dark speech

and now Lil Pemberton was within it’s cold reach,

“there is most certainly a reason to fear…

The November Issue…is coming, my dear.”



Matter of fact, the Issue is here! Read on and bedefrighted. |m|

Read the Halloween Issue  as well, and also check this interview of Tex via Andrea Hurst & Associates!
