Keeping to the theme, and in honor of the previous posts, I am dubbing this Screaming Sunday (being the Sunday before Halloween). And like screams, I'll try to keep it short and...well, just short.
I'm just going to dedicate this post to all the different kinds of screams.
At the fair, I scream in delight with my kids as we twirl in circles and get pushed by the gravitation within the Tilt-A-Whirl ride against our seats.
In my books, my characters scream in the throes of passion.
My grandmother screams in fear when she sees a spider. My girls scream at the cats when trying to get into their room and at bugs in general. I scream at scorpions and I'm glad Michigan doesn't have them.
I also have been known to scream in frustration when something is getting out of hand at home. Well, it's more like a growl, really, but I think it could apply.
Now for the reader's turn: What makes you scream? Is it a positive or negative event that causes it? Or both? I want to know.
Now for my ROW 80 Update:
Reading: Finished Sookie #7 and #8, as well as Lord of Rage by Jill Monroe;
WIP: Added 1,741 new words to my novel;
Exercise: None :(
Halloween preparations with kids: Finished carving pumpkins and got the "Ruby Slippers" for my little Dorothy. Too bad my little Minnie Mouse is too sick to go Trick-or-Treating tomorrow. Rotten stomach virus.
