Ghost Stories is a pure anthology of short stories. We accept stories about ghosts and hauntings, apparitions and spooks, period. Stories can be original fiction, or you can retell true ghosts stories (as long as you're the author! No reposting other's work). You can have a role-play thread and post a story in parts with another author or two (please request a topic from one of the MOBs). We do not feature stories of any other kind than the traditional ghost story, though they can be sad, lonely, vengeful, horrifying, or profound. Poltergeists are permissible.
Ghost Story Episode Rules:
Ghost Stories is an anthology novel with plenty of places to post, but please bear in mind that the Ghost Story Episodes are collaborative short novels. If you wish to write in any particular episode you must seek the approval of one of our MOBs. Because of the nature of the collaboration (a story with a beginning, middle, and end), we only accept 2-5 writers at a time. If we are full you will have to wait until the next episode to reapply. We will take into consideration an applicant's history of being able to regularly participate, and cooperate.
Each episode will have one planning topic, one story board topic, and one novel topic. No one except one of the approved writers should post in those topics. We will remove unapproved postings.
Each Ghost Story Episode will involve a planning stage, and then we will write the story until its ending, and then take a break until we start the next episode. We hope that everyone enjoys our stories!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom, apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.
The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, phantom ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted.
