November is lurking on the other side of sleep, daring me to face it in mortal combat once more.
For fourteen years, we have waged this contest, this dominance struggle of time vs. words.
I have triumphed five times in fourteen years. But I win every year, because I come out with more words at the end of the month than the beginning.

So, this year...

I'm blank on anything new. I'm thinking of finishing up David, one of the side books in the Eight Thrones cycle. He's been pestering me.

Background: Spotter's Field Guide to the Common David Muse

I'm already 10532 words into it and would just need to take it back up.

Opening Segment:

David Inman had always thought of his body as one more tool, useful but only a carrying case for his mind. He had first used it to reward a loyal minion when he was twelve–the same year he’d first killed—only to discover that sex for its own sake meant little. He was well aware, however, that there were many men who coveted his slim fairness.

Not safe for work, nudity.

The movie is Haxen, aka Witchcraft Through the Ages, a Swedish/Danish film from 1922

So, our creepy pics will be a Hollywood retrospective. Today, 1910-1960s, Nosferatur through Rosemary's Baby

Creepy pics:

Because nobody plays like Carlos Santana

And if you like murder ballads, Rolling Stone has a list of the 10 creepiest country murder ballads:

Recipe of the Day:

Again, a presentation idea. But here's my favorite meatloaf recipe to make it.
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
3/4 c. oats
2/3 c. ketchup
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 egg beaten
2 tsp. beef bouillon granules
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dried mustard
Combine meat, oats, 1/3 c. ketchup, onion, egg and 1 tsp. bouillon; mix well. Shape into loaf in shallow baking
Here is where you shape them and use some onion and bacon.
Bake 350° for 1 hour.
Glaze: Combine rest of ketchup, 1 tsp. bouillon, brown sugar, lemon juice and mustard. Pour
over loaf, bake 10 minutes. Refrigerate leftovers. 4-6 servings.
