Ghost Writing

we’ve finally written our ghost story for Writing Magazine’s annual ghost story competition. We won it last year so the pressure’s on to retain our crown. We’ve been ransacking the treasure chests in our minds, tossing ideas over our shoulders in a desperate attempt to find something that fits and we finally found it last night. Only wrote the first draft today, so will either read it again tomorrow or let it sit for a couple of days before going back to it. So far the feeling’s a good one. At least we didn’t leave it as long as we did last time. We started writing Field of Screams (which is in Writing Magazine’s August 2010 issue) 3 weeks before the deadline, so we’ve improved on that at least. Don’t think we can actually write a better story than Field of Screams, but guess we only have to beat this year’s entries. Failing that, have the other entries mysteriously vanish… 😉 If we don’t win, we want our mate Ryan Ashcroft to win. We’ve started encouraging him to send out his work and plan to take over the magazine together. Hope he won’t become our Monster…
