October's Theme: Embracing the Ghostly Vibe of the Season

Halloween is the ideal holiday: you get to decorate, the spooky vibe is a fun departure from the normal, role-playing as a variety of characters is celebrated and even encouraged, you don’t have to worry about buying a bunch of gifts, people are encouraged to get out and meet the neighbors, and the whole focus is collecting lots of candy. Although Halloween would be a great theme for the month, I wanted to pick something a little more specific.

As the leaves change colors and the nights grow longer, October brings with it a sense of enchantment and mystery. It's a month that welcomes the supernatural, making it the perfect time to explore all things ghostly.

Yes, October is the ideal backdrop for exploring the realms of the supernatural, so I’m excited to reveal the theme for this October: ghost stories! The boundary between the living and the departed seems to blur during this magical month, inviting us to embrace tales of ghosts and spirits. Join me as I delve into the unknown, and let’s discover the thrill of the paranormal.

Classic Ghost Stories and Spine-Tingling Movies

Throughout October, I’ll feature classic ghost stories that have stood the test of time. These tales will transport us to haunted mansions, eerie graveyards, and mysterious realms where spirits roam freely. Get ready to explore the chilling worlds created by master storytellers.

But that's not all! I’ll also explore the world of cinema with films where ghosts and specters take center stage. Get ready to revisit (or discover!) some of the most iconic ghostly movies ever made.

Flash Fiction for Your Spooky Delight

I’ll also be trying something new this month: I'll be sharing original short and suspenseful flash fiction stories! Each story is designed to send shivers down your spine and ignite your imagination. These quick reads are perfect for a dose of October chills. I’ll only be posting these flash stories on my social media, so make sure you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter so you don’t miss them!

So, my dear readers, prepare to be enchanted by the ghostly vibes of October. Whether the written word or the silver screen, we’re in for a month of spine-tingling tales, classic hauntings, and captivating flash fiction. Stay tuned for the eerie and the extraordinary as we celebrate the supernatural this October!
