I'm writing again! I haven't written anything in weeks, but I finally got part of something out. Well ok, that's a lie, but I haven't gotten much out in the past few weeks besides the five minute prompts for writers group and a bit on an idea I have. No, I don't think I'll be talking about that lest I talk it out too much, which would be bad.
I'm having a problem with my story though: I have a ghost but I don't know what he wants. I can't just have him there for no reason, that's very anti-climatic and gives no reason to the story. I have over 1,000 words, a title, and an ending, but I have no clue what to do with the ghost. Anyone got any ideas? What I have so far is he's shown up and made the computer screen explode and now he's just floating above the desk. Why is he there? What does he want? I have the story of why he's dead in my head, but I have no clue why he's there. Does he just need to tell someone his story? Does he just want to visit? I need something interesting! FYI, he's a monk from Japan.
So, any thoughts anyone?
