The Beast Behind The Curtain

Introduction: today’s writing prompt is another single word, but one that didn’t instantly lend itself to a story the way that ghost did: curtain. Nothing like making it easy for yourself, eh? Although I did once watch a film about a haunted shower curtain. I’ve never seen Schindler’s List, but I have seen that. Perhaps that tells you something about me. Anyway, once I got going this came quite easily, just don’t take that as a sign of quality, enjoy.

Ghost In The Walls

Introduction: Inspired by Inktober (and my inability to draw), I have decided to spend October writing short stories. Each day I am going to grab a random prompt from the internet and attempt to put together a quick tale based on it. Will it be a success? Fuck knows, and I can’t promise literary masterpieces when they’re being banged together in a couple of hours, but as I’ve completely failed to provide a steady stream of writing for this site, I’ve decided it’s a good idea. My first prompt, as we’re entering the spooky season, was a simple one: ghost. Read on to see what I came up with.

The Christmas Trespasser

Intro: It’s Christmas, which means it’s time for stories around the fireplace about ruddy faced fat men who steal presents, I think that’s how it goes anyway. Below is my attempt to join the Christmas canon. I’d love to tell you what inspired it, but truthfully, I can’t remember. It’s one I’ve been tweaking for a long time. Now is the time to stop tweaking and for some of you lovely people to start reading. Enjoy.

Love At First Sight

Intro: This story was inspired by a ghost tour I went on in York. Being based in Edinburgh, I’m used to tales of ghosts, but York might be even more suited to those stories than my beloved city is. If I’m honest, it’s a bit generic (ghostly faces in windows are ever so slightly overdone), and that’s probably why I haven’t been able to do anything else with it. However, I was still quite happy with it. I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
