to all who are into Halloween and being scared.
Fear is something I deal with a lot. As part of that, fear regarding my own writing is a major issue. So, submitting something to my local writer's group always makes me a nervous wreck before and after our meeting.

I also got an idea from them on how to bridge the vast middle on the novel project.
So, all in all, it was a pretty good meeting though I wasn't able to offer much advice their way on their projects. And so it goes......
