S, of my critique group extraordinaire, has written an amazing fantasy novel. In it, there is a character who is "in limbo," stuck between two worlds, and for lack of a better title, we called her a "ghost."
Last night, at G's house, G and I kept hearing strange noises upstairs. G went to investigate, by herself. I turned to the other writers and said, "Should I go with her?"
T nodded and yelped, "Yes!"
So I got up and followed G out of the kitchen, grabbing a cast iron frying pan along the way. Upstairs, we checked closets, peered down hallways and peeked behind doors, all the while, holding my frying pan high, ready to bonk an offender on the head. When we found nothing, we returned to the group downstairs.
"Maybe it was the ghost," J said.
"Didn't you tell us a ghost story once?" T asked me.
"I had a haunted car once..." S began.
And the ghost stories started. So I ask, have you had any experiences that have made you believe in ghosts?
