Not quite sure what the hoopla is all about.
I understand the challenge clearly. And the ghost doesn't have to be the main character. "Misunderstood" could mean a ghost wanting to solve thier own tragic end. It could be terrifying for the living. The ghost could still be the antagonist as well.

So it seems the old "rule" of not revealing your intent to submit to the OWC is out the window now. That's cool with me. I'm in.

Gothic Horror, new one for me. Let's hope I'm able to wrangle up a story good enough for some praise.

I'm thinking Poe here. Corman's version, at any rate! Masque of the Red Death Gothic stylee.

Currently writing my MoviePoet entry which could not be more different, plus working on 3,000 word essay for University, so just mulling over ideas for the moment, but definitely like the Poe approach I think...

Quoted from Angry Bear
Wasn't going to enter anything because I'm busy, but then an idea hit me right away and it's been moaning "write me! write me!" all day, so I might have to.  


Yeah, I know how *that* feels...

It's tough to be a ghost. You need or want something that you can't obtain without help from a person. Course, you have to let that person know that 1.) you are there and 2.) You need their help. Now, if that person doesn't particularly believe in ghosts or chooses to not help, well, dang it, sometimes you gotta rattle some windows or levitate some cleaning products (true story) in order to get their attention. Even then, your chances are not real good...

Excellent challenge topic!

I finished my first draft but am having some major formatting issues.

I am using word have no plain Courier and am having trouble  figuring out where the margins are at. I have referenced the format section. But on the page I set margnes 1.5 left 1 rest and it ends at 6 inches.

Any help would be appreciated rather here or via PM.

Thanks, Zane

Zane, if you are going to screenwrite, you really will need a screen writing program. I did my first feature script last year on a word program, and it is not the way to go. I ended up buying software, but later found out there is free software called, I believe, Celtix, or something like that. You really want to download that and use that. It does the formatting for you, and of course you can adjust settings as desired.

It's not the size that matters...no wait, damn, I guess it is the size that matters. They lied to me! Ok, it's the lie that matters.

Pats will win by double digits today. How's that for Gothic Horror...or at least Gotham Horror.
