Samhain means “summers’ end” in Gaelic.

All writers have experienced or will experience it: the nagging, gnawing feeling of “Why did I ever decide to become a writer?” If you haven’t suffered this dreadful feeling in the pit of your stomach, just wait, it’ll come. Anyone who decides to pursue the craft of writing will eventually undergo the joys and the horrors, whether it be the trials and tribulations of finding a literary agent, the mind-numbing writer’s block, or the various other traumas available to the writer.
