[writing] Publication update

I hate Michigan. I turned on the heat Saturday, which is way too early to need heat. It's only October. (Though last year I turned it on October 1, so at least I made it a few more days.) Only one last winter here, thankfully.

I'm not here to complain about the cold, though! I'm here with a publications update.

My reviews of The Vampire Diaries are going up regularly, even though I don't link to them here each week. Here's the set so far:

+ Gossip Girl Gets Fangs? The Successes and Failures of The Vampire Diaries 1.01 "Pilot"
+ Harbingers of Doom are Super Romantic: Themes of The Vampire Diaries 1.02 "The Night of the Comet"
+ Pun Already Provided: The Vampire Diaries 1.03 "Friday Night Bites"
+ Sometimes Vampires Burn in the Sun. Sometimes They Don't. The Vampire Diaries 1.04 "Family Ties"
+ Never Ages? Bites Girls? Drains Blood? What Are You Again? The Vampire Diaries 1.05 "You're Undead to Me"

I'm really having fun with this show, which surprised me. It's making me think about pacing and storytelling a lot, and at times it's just plain fun.

Finally, I've been adding Halloween icons. Yay Halloween! I bought caramel apple suckers earlier when I went to pick up more tissues. I've been watching horror movies like crazy. Halloween episodes on some of my favorite shows will soon air. I think we're going haunted housing this weekend.
