A New Dawn

Well, October's over. Thank Christ.
.
This is just a brief post to thank everyone who stopped by during The Kind of Face You SLASH!!!, whether you left a comment or not (though if you didn't, what the hell??). I'm going to be taking it easy for the next week -- I'll post, but nothing very substantial, probably. In the meantime, I decided that I would repeat what I did last year when October was over, and post an image of the lovely Naomi Watts, as something of a palate cleanser. Observe:

I feel better already.

I'm one of those you can say 'what the hell?' to. I'm not the biggest fan of the horror novel, but I did get a lot of good book ideas from you last month. It was quite impressive the amount of time, care and quality you put into your work last month. Kudos, Bill.

There...I left a comment, hehe. (seriously though...great work)

Thank you, Kevin, and again, I'm sorry I couldn't take part in your great blogathon...

Ryan Kelly said...

Another person worthy of a 'what the hell'. I've been in something of a funk throughout October, and honestly didn't feel like I had anything to add to your comment threads. Great work though, Bill, and your dedication to your October project was frankly depressing to a foot-dragger like myself.

Oh, that's okay, Ryan. If you hadn't read the stories I was talking about, I can't imagine there'd be much to say.

Ed Howard said...

I just have to say, I didn't comment much, since I had a busy month and didn't do much blogging, but I was definitely enjoying your posts on all those great-sounding horror stories that I haven't read. Great stuff.

bill r. said...

Thanks, Ed. I was a bad blogging friend last month as well, but that's all over now. Maybe...just maybe...things will get back to normal now.

Great blogathon, Bill! I am not the world's biggest horror fan, but your work is always so solid that you make me appreciate books I might not otherwise give much thought to. Thanks for all the great work this past month. And thanks for the photo of Naomi Watts.

bill r. said...

Thanks, Brian! And your welcome, especially for the Watts picture. Isn't she just the best?

I have nothing to apologize for. I commented. Often. So there!

Naomi is a nice pallate cleanser isn't she? I clicked on the link to last year's post. Some guy named Lapper commented on it. Seems like a bright guy.

bill r. said...

That Lapper guy was an asshole. Don't be fooled, Greg. I'm glad he died, to be honest with you.

Greg said...

He died? Damn, I thought he was just on an extended vacation.

bill r. said...

No, he died. He fell down an elevator shaft and landed on one of those big round bombs, like a black metal basketball, with a fuse coming off the top, and then the bomb exploded.

Greg said...

Shaft? Bomb?

He didn't happen to be on an island in 1977 and was purposely setting off the bomb at the bottom of the shaft in an attempt to send a disturbance in time that would transport him from the island back to an airliner in 2004 before it crashed and began a chain of events that would take him back to civilization with four others who would become known as the Oceanic Five only to leave civilization three years later in an attempt to get back to the island which is now in 1977 where he finds himself at the bottom of the shaft desperately trying to set off the bomb?

'Cause that shit happens all the time.
