I had a very scary dream earlier this week, in which I was chased by a demon in the garden of my home. It most likely came about after I watched a few episodes of Supernatural season 1, which I’m currently enjoying on Amazon Prime. I find myself musing about the story and the Winchester brothers, and wondering if I could ever be that kind of ghost hunter. I know that I couldn’t. I love attending organised ghost hunts with groups of people, but I would never enter an abandoned building by myself. I would hunt with another person, but never solo, because I know there is a whole other world out there, and we must treat it with respect. But I am bored of seeking ghosts in safe places. You know what I mean: talking to them at home (although my new house is completely empty of Spirit), finding them in various places that I visit, going on events that are designed to offer light entertainment.
Last weekend I visited Beeston Castle with my family, and we did a little shopping on our way back to the car. There is a fantastic discount on selected products, and my daughters got new toys for just a few pounds each. I found the best bargain: a brand-new hardback book of ghost stories! I have seen it featured on the English Heritage website, and it was already on my to-read list. I do wonder how I missed the submission window for this anthology, unless it was already agreed by agent selection. I will investigate my options for a potential future collaboration… in the meantime, I will indulge in reading ghost stories and watching my favourite paranormal TV shows. And I will try not to have scary dreams afterwards!
