Ok, I know I'm posting alot and probably becoming a pain, but this board has so many creative minds that I just have a nak for picking over little issues
I started a horror story two months ago & I quit on it because I couldn't come up with an actual idea. I have tons of ideas of things that could happen in the story, things that I've dreamt or experienced (I live with a 'playful' ghost in my room)but that's it. Has anyone seen the Grudge? Even it has the whole "when someone dies in a fit of rage they leave behind a curse" thing. Well... so far all I have is that my main Character who I've yet to name officially, so we'll call her 'Ally', has had a rough life. She deals with everybody's crap and has to work around them to do what she needs to get done. She finds out that her father, who lives in the country while she in the city, had been in the hospital for a month and has passed away. She then has to drive two states away to get to the lawyers office for the reading of the will only to find out that it was changed and she gets nothing. When she's on her way home, stretched for money and time, her mother-in-law calls and says that she needs to borrow a grand for (you name it) well, to get the story off, She decided to put all of her personal savings into buying a lighthouse and leaves for a week on vacation to get away from everything. Thats when stuff starts happening. That's all I have... and as you can see not much. The prologue is short (681wrd) but I think pretty ok. It gives a small but mysterious backround to the evil in the lighthouse. If anyones interested, let me know and I can email it. But if anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear!!!!!!
