The fog is thick

It really is foggy here today. I can barely make out the barn on the other side of the road- although I can hear the creature that lives in it. Terrible sounds; the click of teeth, the pawing of a clawed foot. I think it is hungry but I don't have a sacrifice for it today. Maybe tomorrow, after I find a wayward stranger.

Just kidding. The stranger doesn't need to be wayward. Actually, it doesn't need to be a stranger either.

That reminds me, totally unrelated subject, I am having a coffee hour at my house if anyone wants to come. . .

I really need to stop procrastinating and get to work. I have a lot to do this week and I don't know if the the boy's sleep habits and daylight savings are going to mesh or if he will be a sleepless, crabby zombie attempting to turn me into the same.

I best get to writing before he wakes. The next chapter awaits me.

I hope you have a productive week! Writing in the fog may end up being inspirational.

"It was a dark and stormy night . . .

Thanks Bobbie! I was actually thinking the same thing with the 'dark and stormy night' that and 'The Mist' from mr. King.

Here's to a productive week, and a nice layer of fog.

The time shift has thrown me for a loop, as well. Hope the zombies don't come out to play.

I love fog.

I think every horror writer should be forced to write when it's foggy.

Why doesn't anyone want to come over for coffee?

Catherine J Gardner said...

Because we're scared of the thing in the barn.

Hmm, coffee you say?

I wish I could drop by for coffee, believe me! I need something to wake me up today--either coffee, or the threat of being eaten by whatever's lurking in that fog.

I hope your week turns out more productive than mine's bound to be!

Fog is awesome. I remember growing up in San Fransisco, the fog would get so thick, we couldn't even see the grass from the front window, let alone the sidewalk or street.

Of course, driving in such fog SUCKS. Especially when you're in a big tanker truck, winding your way down a narrow levee road that isn't much wider than your truck, with a 20 foot drop into water on either side. I hope to never repeat that experience.
