Now, for the big reveal... the 2011 Halloween Bookish Pumpkin is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
I haven't read the Jane Austen-horror mash-up, yet (the library hasn't had a copy in months), but when I sat down to paint my first pumpkin of the season, it just felt right. The book, gruesomed up by Seth Grahame-Smith, sounds funny, despite the added gore.
On the back, I painted the opening words of both books:
I hope that by keeping books on my brain — whether I'm cooking or pumpkin painting — I'll be more motivated to work on my unwritten novels. Motivation will be essential with NaNoWriMo around the corner.
I hope you can find your own inspiration wherever you need to look.
Happy Fall and Halloween from Change the Word!
