NaNoWriMo has started and I'm not ready! I wish I had another week because I need a really strong villain or villains. In any case, I'm wearing my NNWM t-shirt today. lol Geek.
We went to our friends' haunted house for Halloween. I thought they had gotten rid of the ghosts there. My son who is sensitive to those things asked us if we were going to bless ourselves and the car before we get there. We were like, "No, we don't need to. We'll be fine. They got rid of the ghosts." We were already a few blocks from their house when he said it so it was too late anyway.
Within twenty minutes of being there, he says he has a stomach ache. I tell him to use the bathroom, but he says he doesn't have to go. That's when I think there must be a ghost in the house because he gets these stomach aches whenever a ghost is around.
Later, my friend who owns the house sits next to me and starts telling me that there is a ghost of a little boy that has been following her around the house recently. I didn't even start that conversation on ghosts, so it's weird that she brought it up. Then another one of our friends overheard us talking and told us his encounter with a shadow person that stood in the doorway of his room when he was a kid. When he was an adult, he heard scratching under his bed and then an entity pinned him down on his bed and growled in his face. One time when he was a kid, something came over him and made him cry uncontrollably. It woke his brother up. Then his bed started to shake, but he was too afraid to move, so his brother jumped on the bed to get it to stop and it stopped shaking.
Wow, those were great stories to hear on Halloween.
Yesterday we were supposed to go to the LA Convention Center, but ended up not going. It's 1.8 miles from the haunted Cecil Hotel where Elisa Lam died. We have to go today for sure and I hope we don't get lost and end up closer to that hotel. I want to be as far away from that hotel as possible. I don't want to end up a casualty like that poor guy who was walking by and ended up getting killed by a girl who jumped to her death from the roof of the hotel. She landed on him. That whole area has bad vibes.
I started reading Gone. Wow. It starts off with a bang and grabs you. Damn, I wish I can get my book to that level. Oh please God, please get me to that level!
