A to Z Blogging Challenge 2015 Theme
Ready, get set, and almost…… Go!
It is time once again for April’s A to Z Blogging Challenge! This year, my theme is Ghosts From Around the World and Around the Corner – or, Daily Ghost Post, for short. So starting April 1 with the letter A and finishing on April 30 with the letter Z, I will share folklore and stories and more. I hope you will join me for this foray into the world of supernatural folklore.
In thinking about what to write for this year’s A to Z, it occurred to me that I would have a blast researching ghosts. Barry and I love to tell ghost stories, and it is always a treat to learn more about them. My friend Donna Cleary posts a daily photo of an undead monster every day during October. So I thought, “Maybe it would it be fun to do a narrative, ghost-focused variant of Donna Cleary’s ‘fiend of the day’ on my blog!” The series will include ghosts and phantoms, maybe a few fiends, and definitely an undead or two.
You see, the ghost story genre embraces more than just the invisible spirits of the dead…
Barry and I actually enjoy thinking about ghostly creatures. But when it comes to our storytelling work, we chew on the metaphorical undercoating of ghostly characters. (Metaphorically speaking of course). I plan to do some chewing here and hope that you will chew too by commenting and sharing your tales and views.
Some of these spooks are ones I’ve known (not personally, thankfully), and others are brand new to me. I am very excited to share them with you.
Here’s hoping that my daily posts inspire your creativity and imagination as much as they inspire mine.
