Reading and Writing Considerations-a Radical Environmentalist Novelist Off the Deep End
From NaNoWriMo historical Supernatural novels in Scotland, Michigan, South Alabama and historical horror in Standwood Station, GA-to the Phantom Northern Woods-to singlehandedly refighting the American Civil War-to exploring Social Justice and standing for First Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution-we deal out horror, Supernatural, Historical, fantasy, mystery, and more. We do not fear outspokeness.
And always, always, always, We Do History.

We write it. We read it. We hold strong opinions. We orate.
Meanwhile, whether we're writing or just reading, we love to rave about books and authors right here!
|These two prompts went so well together, I wrote 2 shorts on them on Jan. 24:
|January 10, 2013: What's worse: extremely cold weather or extremely hot weather?
I've always been a very cold-natured person (physically) and have lived in way too many homes with insufficient heat, so one would think I would choose "extremely cold," but no-"extremely hot," because where I can bundle-bundle-bundle against cold, I cannot "dress down" to suffer in extreme heat.
|January 9, 2013: What is your favorite old movie?
“Double Indemnity,” although ANY Barbara Stanwyck movie including the perennial favourite “Christmas in Connecticut,” plus I love the 1951 version of “A Christmas Carol”
Pretty much, I love anything from the 1940’s, I wish I could live in that era/
Not even begun on today's Short Story Challenge yet, because yesterday's story is determined to be a novel, and I'm adding to that, all that I came up with (who am I kidding?? all that announced itself to me) overnight.
|January 8, 2013: What is your favorite book from childhood?
The first I remember reading, and have never forgotten, were Andre Norton’s wonderful “Lord of Thunder,” a science fiction, and Rosemary du Jardin’s novels for young adolescents, what would be YA, but much more innocent than today’s books. Both my parents were readers and kept a lot of paperbacks and hardcovers in the household, plus my mother and I read Library books often. I enjoyed science fiction and dystopian; I was young when I read “A Canticle for Leibowitz.” Of course, my addiction to horror also started at a young age.
