I’m going with THE THING as my remake choice. Not because it’s a fabulous movie, but because the 1982 version made me laugh more than the 1951 version. Besides, it takes a lot of hutzpa to do something so bad twice. Join in the REMAKES BLOGFEST FUN. See what other remakes people are choosing.
Keep your eye out for the next Insecure Writers Support Group anthology. The stories are on their way to the judges, and before you know it, you’ll be able to read a collection of spine-chilling tales. TICK TOCK. The clock’s ticking toward another anthology for your reading pleasure.
I have a bit of news. I returned from France to find that one of my more literary stories had won a place in an anthology called Lost. And it was a Judge’s Pick. They notified me that the publication date is early December. I’ve always thought about taking a creative writing course, but I’ve never gotten around to it. Now I’m more motivated.
Remember to take a look at L.X. Cain’s Bloodwalker. It will give you some chilling moments all along the way to the end. If you don’t have time to read it right now, add it to your Goodreads‘ list and read it later.

FRANCE, continued. This was going to be a very different kind of trip. The barge down the Canal Du Midi was the first leg of our journey, and will always be memorable. It started in Carcassonne, a medieval city with the prerequisite castle (LaCité) and moat–dry, but a moat, nonetheless.
How exciting to stroll along walls built in Roman times, then fortified in the 13th and 14th centuries. We explored the city and hiked up to La Cité a couple of times. There was too much to see for only one visit. The canal waited and looked quite inviting from the bridge.
