How to write ghost stories - not at all scary!,
This review is from: Ghost Stories and How to Write Them (Kindle Edition)
Kathleen McGurl is best known to many as blogger Womagwriter. As author of the popular blog, she knows her stuff when it comes to writing for women's magazines and has always been generous about sharing that information with others. This book concentrates all her knowledge on writing ghost stories. As well as having several cracking ghost stories, Kathleen also explains the differences between different types of ghost story and explains what inspired her to write each story.
But don't believe her when she dismisses one first draft as not good enough to publish. I thought that particular section showed a great example of how one story could be told in two different ways and still be an excellent tale.
The book takes the fear out of writing ghost stories. Read it for the stories or for the advice, or for both. You won't be disappointed!
