Writing Prompt: Ghost Stories

Since I was a kid, I’ve loved ghost stories. Something about them makes me think of mystery, suspense, and the unknown. They hold unique possibilities that “normal” stories don’t. Today, I want you to write a ghost story that takes place at night. It can take place inside or outside.

Does it involve a haunted forest or a dilapidated house? Maybe a haunted carnival ride? Is your ghost the protagonist (main character) or the antagonist (the villain)? What abilities does your ghost have? Can they only walk through walls or can they move things with their energy?

What does your ghost want? What happened to them? Why do they haunt the place they do?

Take 10 minutes to write a story with a beginning, middle, and end.

Happy writing!
