Read Me At Night — A Short Story

Short horror story Rebekah Koontz halloween thriller fiction writer

I like to go on drives at night; quiet, peaceful strolls around the suburban neighborhoods.

Autumn leaves crunch under the weight of my old Sedan. I crack the window, and a crisp breeze cools my face. Pumpkin spice wafts from the kitchens of model homes, houses all painted rose and cream. This is a place where nothing bad happens, where a girl like me can live alone.

But even when the darkness falls, my hair rises with the static of a threat looming in the doorways of my home.

A presence that I know isn’t there—but then I look again.

College Costume Party

College costume party

October lovers will be pleased to know that I am extending the costumes, pumpkins, and horror festivities for one more week here on my blog.

Even though there is already talk of Christmas… But hey. I’m a rebel. You’re welcome.

It’s been a while since I’ve written a casual lifestyle post. Our costume party has perfect timing, and I was so pleased. Everyone came, dressed to impress.

New Hair! — Ombre

I recently wrote an article on how to talk yourself out of cutting your hair. That was dear to my heart, because I too was tempted to go for a “cute, short Christmas haircut,” just to mix things up.

I did talk myself out of it, luckily. However, I decided on an ombre instead.

I was telling my coworker about my hair ideas when she mentioned her sister. “She’s in school now, so I bet you she’ll do it for cheap.”

Polite follow-up question: has she done it before?

I have accepted an internship to write for a girl’s How To website called omghow.com! I am very excited to be a part of this, and I was very excited to start. Of course, me being me and having to do everything differently (I asked their permission of course), I started off my first article as a “How (Not) To.”

And we all know what day it is. *spooky music playing*

Read on to be sent to my very first article, “How (Not) To Dress For Halloween.” You can’t say you aren’t curious.

Fall Makes Me Think Of

Fall is my favorite. Actually, I’m already taking it back, winter has Christmas in it.. Fall and winter are my favorites. Fall colors are my favorite.

Now that we have that cleared up. .

Because fall is one of my favorites, I have collected a great store of memories that pop up during this season, memories that are weird.

Normal people talk about orange leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes, and sweater weather.

I’m a little different. These are things I think of when fall comes around, and what better day to tell you than October first! October is %100 fall.
