It’s Calling Me

Introduction: Thirty-one days later and I have made it. As promised yesterday, this is another ghost story which seems only right with it being Halloween and all. I also want to say thank you to anyone who has read any of these stories; it means a lot to me that you’d take time out of your day to do so. It’s been fun! Challenging but fun. Now, enjoy the final one.

The Ghost In My Head

Introduction: For my final two tales, I want to return to where I started, ghost stories. Not just because it’s Halloween, although that plays a part, but because I fucking love ghosts. The idea of a pale figure standing in the corner watching me will never fail to send a shiver down my spine, and what’s better than that? However, as much as that is true, today’s ghost story is a ghost story that’s not really about the ghost (wow, that was a lot of ghosts).

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.

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.
