That's the Halloween part.
As for the second part, November is NaNoWriMo month, meaning I'll be focusing on writing up my story. It will have priority over this blog, meaning there will be very tangible amounts of time between posts, if I get a post up during November at all. It's also the reason I haven't posted for the last two weeks.
However, come December, I'll be rejuvenating the blog with another one post/day challenge for myself.
As always, idea suggestions are always welcome!
