    That last one would be terrifying. So are the ones that affect your blog. No good ideas though? Living that one right now…
    And dig the names you chose!

      Thanks, Alex. I look lie a Ghoulie most mornings. But let’s not go there.

      I really do live in fear of never having another good idea. Sometimes I just am blank!

    The restless undead ain’t got nothin’ on you two when it comes to writing horrors.

      Oops! We didn’t want to scare you that bad, Yvonne. Look, I’ll pull out the bag of Halloween candy. You’ll feel better after a bit of chocolate.

    How about have all of those happen, in the last month. Being a writer is so much fun. I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to be one….unless you’re sane. Great Halloween post. Gave me the shivers.

      Now you’ve scared me. Could that really happen…all in one month?

      Yeesh– isn’t that what they make Xanex for?!

    These are all very scary. For sure. But #4 got me recently, and it kills me to think about it. :( Sometimes, crap happens, and all you can do is pick yourself up and dust off.

      Social media IS a scary world sometimes! There are a lot of bored people out there looking to cause trouble, I think.

    Very nasty list! I’ve experienced some of that, but hopefully the list will not replenish or remain until each one has been crossed off! Hope you had a great Halloween!

      Hi Nancy– thanks for stopping by. Yes, truly terrifying.

    Oh, that is a terrifying list, and I’ve experienced a computer crash dilemma with a backup program that failed, and . . . it makes me quake just thinking about it. Time to e-mail my manuscript to my hubs again, and then check the back up system (it’s like checking under the bed)

      I have started backing up things in Dropbox after I read about such a horror on a blog once. Yikes!

    Good list. Numbers 8, 5, and 2 would definitely be on my “Fright List.” Especially #2, since I’ve just read a novel which had my main character’s name being used, and when I started writing my novel I thought the name was unique/different and never been used. My how I was wrong. What’s worse is now I’ll look like a copycat once my novel gets published. Jeez.
