Mummy Vacations, Sleepy Hollow, Words on the Page #writestuff #caffeinateme


Happy Sunday morning everyone! Once again we've enjoyed a lovely fall weekend with temps for the next week predicted to soar back into the eighties. It's perfect fair weather, unlike previous years when our little fair was blessed with multiple torrential downpours. I'm heading out later today to work my final shift before everyone packs up and departs.



Why don’t mummies take vacations?
They’re afraid to relax and unwind!


Which means I've got to get the words down this morning to make up for that lost time this afternoon. The first project of the day is Mum's the Word, my Story Orgy Prompt. That gets posted to the blog tomorrow. Then I owe the lovely Havan 1000 words on our joint project, At the Heart of Christmas. And can you believe it? Tomorrow is the 14th. That means on Tuesday I have to start work on the final book in the Jack of Spades series with Pulp Friction. I'll tell you what, time sure flies between Pulp Friction episodes!

Since I finished the Walking Dead, and season five won't hit Netflix until the 27th, I've been kind of scattered with the television viewing, but I have found some real gems to occupy my time. For instance, we watched Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp. I've always been a fan of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I saw a version of this movie when I was very young, and it was just the right amount of creepy and scary and happily ever after to stay with an impressionable kid. The Johnny Depp version, however much it may deviate from the Washington Irving version I grew up loving, does justice to that original. It's creepy, haunting, slightly gory, love story that raises all sorts of questions about science and magic and myth and how they mingle. While the movie takes many liberties with the original, it does raise the story from mere ghostly tale to something more. We enjoyed discussing how Ichabod turned to science to quell his broken heart after the incidents of his childhood, and how it took both science and magic to resolve the mystery of the headless horseman. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend Sleepy Hollow. (Interesting notes abut Sleepy Hollow HERE.)

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
