Halloween Blogfest: Lucy Felthouse

The Days Are Getting Shorter
by Lucy Felthouse
I’m from the UK, where Halloween isn’t as big a deal as in the US – though it’s definitely increasing in popularity. I don’t have children and I’m too old to go trick or treating, but I’ll try and take in a spooky event if I can.

Otherwise, the time of year basically means to me that the days are getting shorter, something I dislike. I love the sun, I love long days, daylight, spending time outdoors. I also dislike the cold, so being reminded that winter is on its way is not a good thing, in my opinion. Autumn is very beautiful in terms of the leaves changing colours and falling—there’s not a sight like it, but the season often brings a ton of rain and dull days here in England.

On a lighter note, though, as I don’t like to be too negative, I make the most of the colder, shorter days, as it generally means that I write more. I don’t have the temptation to go out into the garden when I should be working, or to stare out of the window at the lovely sunshine. I find it much easier to hole up, try and keep warm and get my fingers flying over the keyboard. I’ll often write summer scenes, sunny stuff, to keep my spirits up. And whatever gets me working, gets me writing, can’t entirely be a bad thing, in my book.

WeekendAtWilderhopeManorAs some of you may know, I like to play around with different themes in my books and stories, and autumn and Halloween have definitely featured in my writing. My short story, “A Party to Remember,” features in the just-released The House of Erotica Witching Hour, and my lesbian novella, Weekend at Wilderhope Manor is set around a Murder Mystery weekend taking place on Halloween. Ghosts and vampires galore in these two stories!

So, I may not be an autumn fan, but it sure comes in handy for my word count! 😉
