The truest horror is not serial killers, malevolent entities, or even evil aliens. It's real life problems that take you away from the things you love, like Halloween, watching horror movies, and writing about scary things. Last year, life threw me a curve ball in the form of unemployment – first time ever in my life I'd been without a job. After 13 years at a company, a new boss stepped in and decided that they didn't need our marketing team. Without ever meeting us, we got the boot with very little notice, no gratitude for our years of service, and absolutely no severance. It was a shock.
After the storm, I'm slowly regaining a state of equilibrium, reassessing my social media, Halloween sites, and blog – and hopefully keeping my scary shenanigans afloat in some form or another. The blog may transition to an occasional or even a seasonal blog (although there are so many scary things to talk about all year long). If you have no aversion to social media, please like MyScaryHalloween's Facebook page
which does get frequent posts.
Here's to a bright, and horribly scary future!
