Fear of the Dark? Haunted House Stories
"At the top of a hill, on the edge of a town, devoid of neighbors and noise, sat a house. But this was no ordinary house..." Haunted house stories are always fun to tell and thrilling to hear. It's all about creating an atmosphere and having a believable story line. And, of course, stories are always better when they are true. Look below for pointers on how best to tell a haunted house story.
Writing a paranormal story is one of the great creative pleasures of life. It allows you to not only work your creative capabilities in a work of fiction, but gives you the opportunity to flex your imagination and see where it will take you. A paranormal story refers to a story which involves the presence of ghosts, psychics, werewolves, vampires, spirits, demons or aliens. Even if you're a beginning writer, you can still create a story that is thrillingly chilling.
