One Year Ago Today

This is a tribute to my friend Heather...if I could draw I would. Hopefully this will do... Anita Marie



One Year Ago on October 31, 2004 I posted my first story over at the Soul Food Cafe.

Since then I've done something I've always wanted to do which was write honest to goodness ( hee hee ) tales of the Weird and Supernatural.

More then anything I wanted to write stories like Rod Serling and Stephen King. I wanted people to gets glimpses of Vincent Price and Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney Jr. in my little stories.



This you know is all I've ever wanted to do, and you know being great or good at it doesn't matter anymore. I'm doing exactly what I should be doing.

And that's something a lot of people can go through their lives and never come close to.

I can't tell you how grateful I am for that.

So thanks to my friend Heather Blakey for giving me this chance and thanks to people who have said nice things and I even have a thanks to people who wanted to say something nasty and didn't.

Happy Halloween and don't let the bed-bugs bite...unless you're into that sort of
thing.

Anita Marie

If you counted up all the writing you've done in a year I bet you would be amazed. You have an art for the spooky and follow it with enthusiasm. You will get where you want to be.

Anita Maries, I join you in celebrating Heatrher - she had unleashed so much creativity here -I said she might have created a monster before but it didn't quite sound right - maybe monstrous proportions? Hm?

Anita....you remember that special time a year ago and I have printed out your 1st posting .
I am one of those who print out 2 big folders a year with all the writing that takes my fancy,I print it out and take it up to bed to read ....
I might say you often make my night with your tales of the weird and wonderful and wacky ...
You know young children love stories of ghosts and the weird of the world....I remember some 35 years ago reading to my children and their cousins 8 in all in 2 double beds at Mums ....
I made up the stories as I went along ,they squealed and put their heads under the bed clothes,no after nightmares,they can tell make believe from the real thing......even at 8 years down in age.....
Lovely tribute to Heather Anita.... Lois (Muse of the Sea)
