My Writing Tips
Gossamer thin ghost
The veil descends at night time
He missed her so much
BEAST: He still saw a man in his
reflection. Yet the body of his victim
said otherwise. The beast within
always fools its host.
His potion not needed now
He was of two minds
ANSWER: As he saw the ghost, he
wondered: do they have brains? He was
answered as the spirit possessed him
and replied: ‘Yes. When we need one.’
MICROPEDIE IN 55 WORDS
Taboo – custom prohibiting a practice. Could be essential, cultural or political, so can so easily be form of control or persecution.
Taste – in aesthetics, a preferred choice. When expressed culturally by a hierarchy, usually a guide to what isn’t.
Tax – money taken from citizens to fund services; which are ideology based rather than people centred – therefore, political levy.
Harry Fang says:
WEAK: As a vampire I am weakest when
I crave … what? Hot; drained of blood.
Memories of when I lived drive me mad
when I smell a bacon sandwich.
BLATANT STATUE: All shook up the
jailhouse rock Elvis had a wooden heart.
Suspicious minds said the devil in disguise
did it. So blatantly lonesome tonight.
ECTOPLASM: The ghost’s 1st attempt
seemed more like a swirling ponytail than
a haunting. And the 2nd ghost knew too
well what was behind a pony’s tail.
