Turkey and other Decapitations

This weekend was Thanksgiving up here in the Cold White North (neither cold nor white this weekend but it'll come).

I did not put on the feast and instead we attended at my mother-in-law's. Nice because it's all the fun with far less work. Then again no turkey sandwiches today. Oh well. I'm willing to pay that price.

My goal this week is to write at least 40 new pages in my work in progress to make up for the 40 I had to delete last week. Let's not go there since the memory is still too painful.

Other goals involve getting the house ready for Halloween. This means that today, after I get my word count for the day completed, I will be creating a paper mache neck stub for a decapitated man. Yes, we'll still have victims under the front wheel of the car in the driveway and also someone's bloody torso crushed under the garage door but, hey, we needed something new this year and decapitation seems the way to go.

How about you? Thinking yet of new pages, deleted pages and/or decapitation or Halloween?

Even with children past the trick n treat age we all still get excited about Halloween I won't start decorating until the week before but the anticipation and planning is still fun. We had snow for thanksgiving but it is all gone now "Thank" goodness.

Thanksgiving is unheard of over here and Holloween is a very quiet affair. Out next big thing is Bonfire night/Guy Fawkes on 5 November - lots of fireworks and frantic pets! Although quite often the rain puts a damper on things...

Glad you had a good Thanksgiving (although no turkey leftovers is a bummer). Right now I'm thinking of all the hand-written pages I have to type into the computer. The best thing about writing the WIP this way is I can rearrange things as I type.
