Happy Halloween everyone! I’ve got some spooktacular links for you today, but first I want to show you the trunk of my car. The kids and I decorated it for a Trick or Trunk event at our church. We spent four hours taping black trash bags all over it and creating a graveyard scene. Then we added some strobe lights and some dry ice for fog. When we finished, we realized the car wouldn’t fit all of us inside it anymore. I ended up driving in a separate car with the kids while my husband drove what now looked like a hearse at a snail pace down the street. Our paper plate award and our trunk are below:
Now for the links:
1. Some great literary pumpkin patterns and a carving contest from YA Highway. I like the Insurgent one myself.
2. A chance to win $50 by writing 250 words from Writer’s Relief.
3. Writer’s Digest has some ten minute literary costumes if you’re in a jam.
4. Jess at Falling Leaflets has some spooky Halloween destinations if you’re in the mood for a trip.
5. An essay from Poe that details his thought process when creating the poem The Raven.
Have fun tonight everyone!
