A Halloween story

Last year at this time, I wrote a little story for Halloween titled “The spot in my yard.” It was a spooky little tale based on some real happenings around the house.

This year as we edged up on Halloween, I decided I wanted to write something else. I thought it would be fun to write a quirky little ghost story. You know, for the kids and stuff.

So, I sat back and started writing. What came out at the end wasn’t so much a quirky little ghost story as…well, whatever this is. I wrote it all while listening to Gob Iron’s “Death Songs for the Living” and, because I’m getting slammed with work, decided to post it a couple days ahead of Halloween.

I’m not saying it’s good, but it’s screwed up enough to hold this spot while I finish up some paid work over the next few days. I call it…

    The Roland Corning story need more in-depth details…what sex toys and why the cemetery? South Carolina makes us so proud.

    I think the producers for Saw VII have found their creative writer.

    Well done Otis.
