I think I've got some ideas rattling around in my head. Things to do with dead cats, psycho neighbors, and fire. Maybe, just maybe I can get some words down.

I hate it that life is getting in the way of my writing. Working three jobs has dried up my creative juices and no matter how hard I've tried, nothing flows. Every time I try to write I get mentally exhausted within moments. Writing used to be fun for me no matter how bad I wrote I liked doing it. Now, when I try to sit down and write it is like a chore. It doesn't help that a flood destroyed a LOT of work I had done. Somehow I've got to find my writing mojo again. Any ideas?

Every day is Halloween

For those of us who love, live, and look forward to Horror, everyday is Halloween.  It never ends.  We read about it, watch it, or write it each and every day.  We do all year long what normal people only do during the month of October.  We are the ones that are psycho enough to deal with blood, gore, and the supernatural on a regular basis.  For us it never gets old and never loses its luster.  I’ve managed to bring my family into the darkness with me, especially my wife.  We once rented nine horror movies on a Saturday night and watched every one by Sunday afternoon.  Just the other day we sat through four low budget films on one dvd she bought for me in the bargain bin.
God I love my wife!
The rest of the world doesn’t understand us, and those that know us; apprehensively accept our love of gore.  I know I’ve had more than a few people look at me sideways wondering if I am all there.
I’m not, and I will be the first to admit it. 
Who in their right mind cheers for good kills in the movie theatre while most of the audience is grossed out or cringing?  Who can eat a bowl of past while watching Zombies munch away on human organs and who has the (secret and not so secret) desire to become one of the undead immortal beings known as Vampires? 
Horror lovers that’s who. 
There is a never ending stream of Horror movies and books coming out these days to feed our hunger, our need.  Some days it is hard to keep up on all of the new stuff.   Trust me it wasn’t always like that, pickings were pretty slim, especially if you lived in rural areas. Today with cable, the internet, and plenty of producers willing to put out horror movies, it's a little more mainstream than the old days. 
If you think horror lovers are thought to be nuts now, well we were treated like freaks 30 or so years ago.  My own late Grandmother thought there had to be something wrong with me and my "unhealthy interest in Horror".  Of course she thought I was strange for liking Ozzy as well, even though it was my uncle (her son) who got me into Sabbath.  
So here’s to all of us psychos who love and live horror every day, we get to enjoy Halloween over and over again.  I raise my glass to all my fellow Horror lovers.
