Storms and Ghosts

I think we're sort of stuck in Storm Mode here in East Tennessee. It started storming last night about 6:30 (big scary tornado-heavy storms), cleared up for a while, poured rain heavy enough at 4am that it woke me up, and has been storming with varying degrees of thunderiness for the entire day. Combined with my more-or-less solid diet of Ghost Hunters (Netflix, Hulu, reruns, and the new season episodes of GH and Ghost Hunters International tonight and last night), I think I'm going to have to write a ghost story pretty soon. It'll take place in a storm, of course.

Actually, last week I did write a little flash story that's sort of about ghosts. It's called "Voices" and I sent it out already, but I'm thinking it might be a good candidate to expand into a longer story. Maybe when it comes back I'll look at it again.

Catherine J. Gardner posted about WIP Wednesday earlier. My WIP-o-meter is set at ZERO. Well, okay, I did get a little bit of work done on "Cult of the Butterfly" today, but I was hoping to have finished it by now--I mean, it's not like I'm writing it totally from scratch, since I'm just rewriting an old story. I'll finish it Friday, I guess. Finish Friday!

Finish Friday would be nice. I'd love to finish something by Friday.

And it looks like those storms are headed in my direction.

GH can be somewhat addicting.

I miss the big storms we used to get when we were living in SW Ontario. Newfoundland gets the rain and high winds, but rarely thunder and lightning.

Jeremy--I hope the storms didn't wash you away. It seems to have cleared up here for now.

Jameson--I certainly can't get enough of the show. I ended up staying up till midnight last night watching reruns.

Alan--I love storms, although rain and high wind is better than nothing. :)

The butterflies keep fluttering away from me, and I can't think of anything to write about.

That's the problem with butterflies. I made mine alien creatures from Another Planet!

Ghost Stories are awesome!

K.C. Shaw said...

Yeah! And they're really spooky when it's storming. :)

Hey, I shared some of those storms. We were staying outside the Smoky Mountains in Wears Valley. Good times...until the power went out.

Spooky! These were some serious storms, too. I'm glad you made it through okay!
