Flighty is a word I like to use to describe myself. While you may think it sounds as if I'm indecisive and irresponsible, I'm not. Well, maybe I am. I don't know. I'm easily bored, and love to start new projects. Talking to a friend recently, we decided that minions are awesome and the way to finish the incomplete projects we start. I'd like mine to be sexy and barechested most of the day. I'm allowed to ogle as long as I don't drool. He'll help me complete all the projects I have lined up in my head and on paper. He'll say something like, "I love your evil projects and plans, boss. I'll get right on that for you and make it happen." He'll be gleeful and chortle occasionally while he remarks on my truly evil and masterful plots.
Three New Projects
August is half over. I know I said there would be a contest but the month flew by me. Instead, I'm going to start a contest in September. The idea is still half formed, but I'm considering a closed contest where writers send me the stories by email. It will be Halloween themed, and I'll pick a winner in October. The winning story will be featured on my site for the whole month. I'll periodically send tweets about it during the month. It will be like a showcase! It doesn't look like I get a ton of traffic here but it does pretty well in a month. I'll think of another prize or two when September draws near.
New Blog Topics
I'm feeling limited by the narrow restrictions of Flash Friday and Menage Monday. Normally, I like restrictions! In this case, I don't. I do some of my best work while being restricted. I like being forced to think outside my normal comfort zone. Instead of limiting myself to Friday's and Monday's topics. I'd like to join in some of the fun weekly collaborations I've seen. Even though I'll be getting rid of the themes, new themes should take their places. More writing and less pictures. I miss Serial Saturday, too. That was a huge project. I might do a scaled down version of another soon.
My favorite holiday is Halloween. Costumes, haunted houses and decorating. Scary stories and horror movies. I can't get enough of any of it. Even when I play video games, the holiday events are exciting to me. Yes, I have no shame in my childish side. We should all be more open to the delightful, childish things in life. Anyway, for Halloween I'm going to be decorating this blog! I'm considering some contests for the month. Maybe an online trick-or-treat scavenger hunt with other bloggers.
That's it for now. In the next week or so, I'll introduce some themes or throw more posts onto the blog. If you'd like to see something specific here, let me know in comments or by email email@example.com. I'd love to hear from you anyway, so say hi!
Let me know if you'd like to get involved in something fun for Halloween. We'll collaborate. I know it's early, but it's hard to plan around schedules so I feel like it's never too early to think about it. I'm like a department store with my Halloween wares on the shelves at the end of August.
