{ 22nd of October } Day Five through { 27th October 2014 } Day Ten: 

Unfortunately for me, I ran into a few glitches that disrupted my Horror October experience, although I did manage to continue with my project but on a smaller scale despite the absence from being online. For starters, I couldn’t visit other book bloggers in the project due to having limited connectivity as my internet was acting wonky as much as my technical issues with my computer prevented me from being able to blog and/or sort out how to login to Twitter. I had to scrap most of my ideas for this year’s event and I’m moving forward with the last few days with continuing where my readings have been taking me and also to bring a few added surprises to those who have kept with me! :)

I also succumbed to a sledgehammer of a migraine the past three days which erupted out of nowhere due to a stress trigger I was not expecting and therefore, fell behind even further. I had to re-schedule my ChocLitSaturdays as well, as to be honest, between the tech issues and a migraine, sometimes you just have to throw in the towel!

About jorielov

I am self-educated through local libraries and alternative education opportunities. I am a writer by trade and I cured a ten-year writer’s block by the discovery of Nanowrimo in November 2008. The event changed my life by re-establishing my muse and solidifying my path. Five years later whilst exploring the bookish blogosphere I decided to become a book blogger. I am a champion of wordsmiths who evoke a visceral experience in narrative. I write comprehensive book showcases electing to get into the heart of my reading observations. I dance through genres seeking literary enlightenment and enchantment. Starting in Autumn 2013 I became a blog book tour hostess featuring books and authors. I joined The Classics Club in January 2014 to seek out appreciators of the timeless works of literature whose breadth of scope and voice resonate with us all.
