Despite the fact I have good intentions for the ghost story collection I have stalled on writing it. The last few days I have done some soul-searching as to the reason and I think I know why now.
I originally intended it to consist of ten stories but the idea for different stories kept coming to me then the other week I posted a flash fiction based on one of the ideas I had dismissed which everyone seemed to love and think should be made into something more. While praise is of course wonderful it made me question the stories I had chosen to put in and those consigned to the sidelines.
The solution now seems to me to cut back the number of stories to the original ten and save the rest for a second volume. Since I reached a decision on this the task has become far less daunting though I still am hovering over one or two stories and whether they should be included in this first collection. I do now at least feel I can get back to work on it without having to ignore new ideas that spring up.
To get my mind back in the right frame of mind I have been watching a few ghost films and programmes I thought I would share a couple of clips from what I have been watching.
