Travel Log 8-10: An Idea

There have been so many great posts wandering around on my blog roll about fall and halloween (yup, I don't think any of us can wait for that particular day to come, lol) that I have been sitting here in southern California, which is so far from fall like even when it is fall, seriously jonesing for some fall fun myself.
Which gave spark to this little idea. Since I have been meeting so many of you through my giveaway I had this idea shoot out of the cosmos into my noggin yesterday.
One of my favorite things about fall is all the ghost stories, and one of my favorite things to do when I was younger, and went to  umpteen sleep overs, were pass the flashlight stories.
So would anyone be interested in starting a "pass the flashlight" here in blogland?
nothing exorbitant, just a page or two then pass it on to the next person, then others could follow it from blog to blog reading it.
Anyone interested just drop me a comment on this post and I'll get it arranged. It could be a lot of fun =).

As Dirgesinger from Shadowed Paths pointed out I didn't explain what a pass the flash light story is. I often forget that not everyone had as geeky an upbringing as me, lol.
Basically the game is that everyone gathers in a circle and you pull out the ol' handy dandy flashlight. One person starts telling a story, and then at a point of their choosing says " and then..." and passes the flashlight, and the telling of the story, to the next person. They can either choose a person at random or go in a circle until the last person chosen ends the story.
Sounds like fun huh?


  1. How do you write a "pass the flashlight story"? I am interested:)

  2. Yeah yeah, that sounds fun, in honor of the upcoming October season:)) I am in:)

  3. I like the concept, but I have a hard time figuring out how these blog parties and shared things work. I'd definitely need to to be told when it was my turn to add to the story. And I'd need to know where I am supposed to write it...on my blog or yours or the person who went before me? See...I told you, I get all confused by these things, so I usually don't do them. But I love the concept...and I feel your "doesn't feel like Fall here, even when it's Fall" pain. I live on the other coast in FL and it's the same story here! Boo Hiss!
