People seem to have two very different reactions to the month of October. For some, it means pumpkin spice and ankle-biters in costume, sent out to knock on your door and rob you of all your candy with a crooked smile. For others, it’s the time of year where they have to do a double take of the calendar because they just can’t trust their eyes the first time they sweep across the word ‘October’.

Growing up in a country that is only just now catching the Halloween bug, I’m left to fall into the second category by default. And it happens every year. Right now it’s at the point where I should no longer be surprised each and every time March somehow morphs into November and the chocolate Easter eggs are replaced by candy canes and mall-Santas. It happened last year, and best as I can remember it happened in all the years before that too, so there’s no real use in feeling surprised or annoyed or anxious that the year is suddenly rounding third base and headed for home.

I want to pass that sentiment on to anyone else who may be looking at the calendar and feeling that the year disappeared from under them: don’t sweat it. If the year went by quickly then that surely means that you were enjoying yourself and working hard.

And that has certainly been the case here at WF. The boards have been on fire all year, and behind the scenes it has been just as hairy with some exciting new developments to bring to you this month, and a promise for more in the future. Keep your eyes peeled and you’ll be able to watch WF do its utmost to become an even better site for us writer-folk.

Fun read. Good to see everyone's work pulled together and laid out in one place. Much appreciation to everyone involved in the creation of this month's installment, which I'm sure must have been a painstaking process.
