Higher or more efficient productivity is the mantra for success. Setting goals, checking off your bullet journal items, setting your tomato timer, filling out your success planner—they all intend the same thing—get more things done.
Horror films run the spectrum from great to terrible in a way no other genre can. But when done correctly, these films have the ability to scare us in a new way and to change our collective view of what things we find frightening. Some times those are every day things, like a walk in the woods. At other times it is dangerous things and possibilities never before considered. And it is at those crossroads that we discover these watershed moments in horror.
One of the hardest parts of this process is understanding how we think about things as creative people. There is a lot going on in this bread pan we call a skull. Not all of it is good and yet the bad seems to go hand-in-hand with the good.

Among my long list of eclectic skills is the ability to read Tarot cards. I’d imagine that Card reading is a natural fit for a storyteller.
There is a problem that we all face and that is reality v. expectation. The happiest people that I know of live in the moment. They tend to take what is and enjoy it as such. I often look at those people with a not too small amount of jealousy.
We'd feel heartbroken if you were missing out on our shenanigans. So, to avoid crushing our sensitive little hearts, why don't you subscribe to our blog? Come on! Stop playing hard to get! (Although, we do enjoy the tension.)
We'll happily notify you when one of us (or both of us) have something to say. Heck, we'll even play nice . . . from time to time.
