I was lying in bed last night, having trouble sleeping. I've been anxious recently about this year's haunt. Anxious as in 'this is going to cost me a lot of money, time and effort. And I've hardly even started. Infact, all there is so far is one prop that hasn't been mache'd yet. I don't want to give away the theme but it will require some big expensive wall panels, furniture shifting, a built-from-scratch window and a whole lot of other complicated things. A huge undertaking.
I was so swept up in the details of it all that I overlooked the bigger things. So I've decided to scale back to a different (and much more do-able) idea. Hell, this is my second haunt ever, I don't need to make it amazing. I should be taking little steps.
Anyway, I've already got my new theme worked out, and I'm filled with a fresh new enthusiasm. It's going to be a very dark haunt this time. And I'm really excited.
