I Am Thankful

I may have mentioned this before, but Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year. It is a time of year that always brings about feelings of generosity in even the most unsuspecting places. I’ve often wondered why it is so hard to replicate these feelings more often throughout the year. I have seen people be generous but nothing that calls a whole nation forward to give thanks.

These past two years have been unusual to say the least. For many, they may not feel like they have much to be thankful for. We’ve seen and felt quite a bit of sadness—friends and/or family who have fallen sick or perhaps passed on, time away from those we love and in many ways the feeling that life has escaped us or perhaps we were cheated.

I’m not going to say that none of the sadness and hurt mattered because it did and still does. But I am an optimist and no matter how hard life can get, I try to look for the silver lining. I need to because that is what pushes me forward. It is our hope that gives us strength and for that I am grateful.

Thank you for sharing this time of year with me and I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. Thank you too to our veterans and soldiers who give so much to protect us. And last but not least, thank you to our doctors, nurses, medical pers and scientists who have worked so diligently over the past year to save so many lives.

Happy writing this week!

Campfire Paranormal-Scope

Photo by Tuu011fba Akdau011f on Pexels.com

I used to be a scout leader but I never camped in November. The weather can get treacherous fast. We have entered that season. Remember. Paranormal creatures come in many forms, some unexpected.

While I am not qualified in any way to read neither stars nor planets, I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

The paranormal-scope is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to guide your life by.

Aries:
Scorpions are clever at hiding under rocks when things get tense. Protect your privacy. You will feel better because of it.

Taurus:
Dragons have charm and it gets them far. Use your charm this week, and see how you can use it to your benefit.

Gemini:
Pixies are very high-energy. That’s why their alone time is used to recharge. Value your time to recharge.

Cancer:
Gnomes love people but they also set boundaries. Don’t let people take advantage of you. Set some boundaries of your own.

Leo:
Werewolves stay close to their loved ones. When change is rampant, those dear to you help keep your balance.

Virgo:
Goblins kickback when they are home. Time to redecorate your place to be more pleasing and more functional.

Libra:
Mermaids don’t make agreements without knowing everything. Take extra care with anything you sign.

Scorpio:
Siamese Fighting Fish will rip each other apart. Don’t fight to preserve relationships you care about. No matter what. Don’t fight.

Sagittarius:
Elves are conscious of when they self-sabotage. People don’t always see it. Don’t undermine your wonderful accomplishments. Smile and keep working.

Capricorn:
Vampires live such long lives that their memoirs would go on for volumes. Direct your extra energy into creative pursuits this week.

Aquarius:
Shapeshifters leap to commit to a cause dear to their hearts. Is there a way you can help others? Consider it.

Pisces:
Sprites are known for their speed especially in understanding. Set some goals for yourself. Do one at a time and surprise yourself.

Thank you and stay safe.

Comfort Reading by Susan Hanniford Crowley

Photo by Taryn Elliott on Pexels.com

We’ve reached the season where comfort means everything.

You want to relax, eat well, stay warm, and build in time for hobbies and reading. Reading, in particular, is healthy in several ways. Reading is:

  1. Fun.
  2. Relieves stress.
  3. Exercises the brain.
  4. Gives insights into other places and people.
  5. Helps you learn.
  6. Gives you a mini vacation.

For The Love Of…A NaNoWriMo Excerpt by Artemis Crow

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is marble-crow-logo.jpg

It’s been a good National Novel Writing Month. My original goal was to write 50k of book 9 in my Zodiac Assassins series. I did it in 8 days. Now my goal is to write the first draft of the novel. Today, Nov. 17, I reached 95k, tomorrow I’ll hit 100k. This is my 3rd year and it’s going to be my best.

How did I do it? I forced myself to develop a detailed story outline instead of plantsing like usual. The story is better written, and by planning I can crank out 5k or more each day. Now that I’ve had this experience, I’ll definitely be doing a detailed outline for each book.

Here’s an excerpt from Aries On Fire. Zero editing, so it’s raw. I hope you enjoy it!

* * *

The incessant screeching drove Aries out of the vacuous Void, herding him like an animal instead of a man in pain, in need of peace, in need of asylum from the real world’s unrelenting, unforgiving, unbearable, white-hot agony. 

A cool, hard touch on his forehead was the first true sensation, followed by a blinding light that pierced his closed eyes making him wince away from the world. But he had no choice. It was either stay in the headache-inducing, screaming Void, or face the pain that the real world had already battered him with in the few seconds since he’d emerged.

Either way, pain would be his constant companion. The hot ache that never ceased, that stole his breath, that promised torment for his remaining years. He longed to remain in the Void; the cool nothing where he floated, unaware of the passage of time, the quiet space blissful until the voices had started screaming “Wake up.”

He heard the slap a second before he felt the sting.

“Wake up,” a woman yelled.

“Goddess, will I ever get away from bloody, screaming women?” he said, stumbling over the words as if he was still a baby. “Did you slap me? Or has the Void suddenly gotten physical?”

“Damn right, I did. Now open your eyes and get up. I’m beyond sick of caring for you under threat of death, in chains no less.”

He opened one eye and saw the witch. The one he’d pulled out of the InBetween when the Master and his coven had overrun the cavern. The one whose sister witches had killed the fallen angels, his friends, who’d sacrificed their lives to buy time for everyone else to get away.

He pulled in a deep breath and stopped short of full lungs when pain stabbed him. He sighed as he let out the breath cautiously. “They must really hate me to have made you my nursemaid.”

“I don’t care what they think. Get up so I can be free.” She sat back and raised her iron-shackled wrists.

The skin under the bands was calloused; he could see more scarring around the iron circling her neck. That hadn’t happened in days, or even weeks.

He rolled his head away from her. “How long?”

“Have I been shackled like an animal?”

“How long have I been out? Days?” Please let it be days.

She laughed, but there was no mirth in it, only a hard edge. 

She was as angry and hurting as he was, but he couldn’t find a single stirring of pity for the witch; not for one of the Master of the Dark’s coven.

His heart sank at the brittle sound. How much time did I lose?

“Days? Try months,” she said

Aries looked around the spacious, but sparse, room to buy himself time to digest that shocking nugget. Months?

May your words flow freely,

Artemis

A November Paranormal-Scope

Photo by Sebastian Voortman on Pexels.com

November’s waters are cold and stormy, but there are moments of colorful bliss. Enjoy every second of those moments.

While I am not qualified in any way to read neither stars nor planets, I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

The paranormal-scope is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to guide your life by.

Aries:
Mermaids sign and dive deep. This means a storm is coming. It could mean an actual storm or a storm of the heart. Be prepared for both.

Taurus:
Sirens are the gossip mongers around the undersea water cooler. Keep a low profile. Keep focused on your work.

Gemini:
The Loch Ness monster loves picnics but alas, it’s getting too cold. Still taking a walk when the sun is out and still putting patches of warmth here and there is revitalizing. Revitalize yourself!

Cancer:
The Kraken rolls over! Ah, it’s not the end of the world. Stuff happens. Live in the joys of your life and let the other stuff float away. Bubble baths are also nice and relaxing.

Leo:
The Lady of the Lake keeps King Arthur’s sword close unless she’s misplaced it in the clutter of her underwater home. Time to get rid of the worn-out and broken.

Virgo:
Nereids are water nymphs of the Mediterannean. They love to help others. If you so desire, you can do the same. Many organizations are seeking volunteers. A friend may need your help.

Libra:
Panlong are Chinese water dragons. They bring good luck! Lucky you!

Scorpio:
The Angel Fish seeks solitude and serenity. This is a great time to enjoy some solitude with reading or doing a beloved hobby.

Sagittarius:
Aspidochelone are know to be large fish or turtles that carry what looks like an island on their backs. You have been carrying what feels like the weight of the world. Look into relaxation methods. Remember that you are not responsible for everything!

Capricorn:
Capricorn was originally a sea creature that loved his children. Zeus had set him among the stars. Keep your dear ones close. Make contact with those far away.

Aquarius:
Ahuizotl is known as the water dog monster who once ate conquistadors attacking ancient Mexico. The dog does love his friends. Plan an informal get-together.

Pisces:
The Hippocamp, part fish and part horse, loves exploring. Plan a getaway.

Thank you and stay safe.

Autumn Winds To Do List by Susan Hanniford Crowley

Photo by Irina Iriser on Pexels.com

What do you do when autumn winds blow?

I do lots of things. Here’s my list.

  1. Does the above look like your yard too? When it stops raining, I’m going to try blowing leaves.
  2. Clean the house to prepare for family/friends who visit and come to dinner.
  3. Prepare a menu for the upcoming family feast.
  4. Get rid of wornout stuff! Just think of it this way, if you want new stuff, get rid of that you don’t want.
  5. Write out the Christmas Cards. I do send email cards to most, but a few don’t get them. For those few, I send paper cards. For ecards, I love Jacquie Lawson’s cards. https://www.jacquielawson.com/ I am not paid by Jacquie. I just truly love her work.
  6. Shopping. Prepare a list so you don’t go off track. I know I do without a list.
  7. Write a book. Flying autumn leaves are just so magical! I am currently in final preparations for EverWarm, truly a sweet romantic paranormal adventure in New York City.

Reclusive Canadian Creatures Paranormal-Scope

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Canada has a lot for visitors to see and do. But looking deeper you may be surprised by the amount of paranormal activity present.

While I am not qualified in any way to read neither stars nor planets, I am intimately linked to the paranormal in the world in many ways. So are you.

The paranormal-scope is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to guide your life by.

Aries:
The Ogopogo is like Nessie but lives in Lake Okanagan in British Columbia. They are great listeners. You can learn a lot about others by listening. Hint!

Taurus:
The fire dragon Gaasyendietha loves the Great Lakes. He feels more than one lake is a good deal. Deals will be in the offering. Be sure to check things out before agreeing to anything.

Gemini:
The Sasquatch lives in the Pacific Northwest and are very shy. Forming relationships of all kinds are on the table for this week. Try not to be shy.

Cancer:
Mussie of Muskrat Lake loves making mud art. This is your week to indulge your hobbies. Art is a possibility for you.

Leo:
The Amarok is a gray wolf (sort of) from the Northwest Territories. They are why you don’t hunt at night. Practice wisdom. Self-improvement goals may awaken your spiritual side.

Virgo:
Old Yellow Top is a Blonde Sasquatch that loves Ontario. It has dark fur everywhere except for its spectacular hairdo. Consider a day to pamper yourself.

Libra:
Adlets are half-man/half-dog creatures that love running. If you’re thinking about exercise, consult with your physician first.

Scorpio:
Le loup-garou is French for werewolf. This werewolf of Quebec is not restricted to the wolf form and can change to anything. Your ability to be adaptable will benefit you this week.

Sagittarius:
The akhlut is a shape-shifter that is a giant wolf on land but then returns to the sea and becomes an Orca. They eat everything! Consider expanding your menu.

Capricorn:
The Gwagwakhwalanooksiwey is a giant raven that is interested in brains. This is the time to expand your education on your terms. Look at online courses.

Aquarius:
The mischievous, long-nailed shapeshifter Mahaha the Tickler could tickle you to death. No worries. Get the last laugh. Watch some funny movies or cartoons to lift your spirits.

Pisces:
The Memegwesi are water tunnel-dwelling creatures under the city of Toronto. They love living the natural life. Enjoy a day in nature yourself or time in a garden.

Thank you and stay safe.

Comfort TV by Susan Hanniford Crowley

Photo by Anthony Shkraba on Pexels.com

What is Comfort TV?

Comfort TV is a lot like comfort food. You partake when you feel a little off, tired, or just weary with the world. That’s ok. You need your “me time”. Where I live, we are experiencing a drop in temperatures, more leaves are leaving their trees, and there is the distinct scent of snow in the air. It’s time to get cozy. Below is a list of some TV to try depending on tastes and moods.

Romantic

Almost any romance on the Hallmark Channel will fill the bill here, but you can find romance on other channels too. Here are some of my favorites.

  1. Sleepless in Seattle
  2. Casablanca
  3. Sense and Sensibility
  4. The Princess Bride
  5. Splash
  6. Wuthering Heights
  7. Ghost
  8. The Wedding Singer
  9. 50 First Dates
  10. Dirty Dancing

Fantasy and Science Fiction

Sometimes we just want to escape the worries of the day, put on our super soft socks and drink our favorite beverage. These are the ones I still adore.

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2
  2. All of the Jurassic Parks and Worlds
  3. All of the Harry Potters
  4. All of Star Wars
  5. All of the Star Trek
  6. The original Blade Runner
  7. All of the Wonder Womans
  8. All of the Spider Mans
  9. All of the Avengers Movies
  10. Black Panther

Still Feeling a Bit Haunted from Halloween

In case you missed these during Halloween and the dark dreary days of November are getting to you, here’s a favorite group of mine you might want to see.

  1. All the Darks Shadows tv series and movies including the new one with Johnny Depp
  2. Practical Magic
  3. Hocus Pocus
  4. Scream
  5. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
  6. All the Addams Family movies
  7. The Haunted Mansion
  8. Haunted Honeymoon
  9. Labryinth
  10. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I am sure you could add more categories and movies. Feel free to put them in the comment box.

For The Love Of…NaNoWriMo by Artemis Crow

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is marble-crow-logo.jpg

National Novel Writing Month kicked off on November 1st. This is my third year to sign up; so far, I’ve “won” it each time by writing 50,000 words or more in 30 days. Sounds like a lot? Well, it is, and that’s the point. This is the month to put your behind in a chair, or loveseat, or in your bed, and write that book you’ve been wanting to write for years, or months, or you just decided to write on Halloween night.

No matter the book, this is a time to devote to you and your writing, to push aside the little stuff that preoccupies your free time and use it to get words down, no matter what…

Family time? Pfft. Thanksgiving? Can you say catering? Or pizza night? Washing your hair? Okay, maybe you should do that, along with the rest of you, but November is about allowing yourself to be selfish (not that I think doing what you’re passionate about is selfish). It’s about filling the creative well, then emptying it in thirty days, while creating a habit of writing every day.

It’s about proving to yourself that you can do this thing called writing. And guess what? It’s not too late to start. Are you a pantser (you write by the seat of your pants)? Then, huzzah, you can sign up today and get to writing. Are you a plotter (must have outline, grrr)? This is a good month to let that all go and just write what comes to you.

How about, you have a novel that you’ve started, but it’s languishing. Guess what? Sign up for NaNo and get to typing on it again, cold turkey…or pizza, if that’s what you decide to have for Thanksgiving. 

My point is: Write. A novel, a novella, a series of short stories, a memoir, a series of poems, lyrics for a book of songs, anything that fuels your creative side, that fills your heart. The dark days of winter are here, but it doesn’t have to be the dark days of your soul. Light the darkness with the joy of story, with your love of the written word.

It’s the gift that you deserve to give yourself. As for your family, Domino’s is only a phone call away!

May your words flow freely,
