Halloween Is Around The Corner

And this is in my backyard.












Hungry for a bee...












It eats the bee.  And, for good measure, a sense of proportion.



And in writing news...

Today is the last day of Patti Nielson's Keep Track of How Much Time You Spend Writing Blogfest.  My total for the week - About 9 hours.

With lots of helpful suggestions, my query is ready to go.  And I wrote such a good query, it helped hone my story just a wee bit better.  I figure I'll wait til Monday morning.  Who reads queries on Friday night?

I totally missed that blogfest.
Okay, I want to know what is wrong with you. Nobody in their right mind holds up a rule right next to suck a freaky@$# spider!

It was my wife's crazy ass idea and her crazy ass hand holding the ruler.

That spider is terrifying! Yikes!

Best of luck with querying! I started yesterday just because I figured "October 1st" was a good starting date, but I'm only dipping my toes in for now. :)

Did you look up the spider on the internet and determine what kind it is? I have just become familiar with banana spiders, which look terrifying as well. But I have never seen one eat a bee. You win. As Usual. Get that query out.

That is one huge spider. I think I might actually be scared of that one.

9 hours is awesome and to get a good query is priceless. I worked on mine this week as well.

Thanks for participating.

That spider is not right. Not right at all.

Kudos on getting some writing time in!

Ok. That spider is huge! I'm glad I don't have those around my house.

Good luck to you!
