HOW TO TELL A GHOST STORY

A classic ghost story must contain (0) the figure of somebody who is known to have
(1)been alive, who is known to have died and (2)whose form is seen after their death.
You could have a ghostly animal; a ghostly dog for example, (3)but/thought/although you
can’t have vampires, bats or monsters – they belong in horror. In a ghost story you’re
aiming to terrify people and make them scream..
Atmosphere is the key. (6) without it you won’t chill anyone. You need a sense of a
haunted place, often a house, preferably isolated or (8)in some way unnerving, although
not always; there have been a (9) lot/number of goog ghost stories set in London in bread
daylight, and the unexpected appearance of a ghost thrre can work well.
Stories of knights in armour waking down stairs or ladies in white floating through walls
are fine, but your ghost needs to have some(10) sort/kind/type of reason or moral purpose
for them to return and for you to see them.
The closer your ghost resembles a person, (11) the more chilling it becomes. Come back
to the ordinary now and again in your story, otherwise it ceases to (12) be frightening.
You need a balance between he everyday and the abnormal; something happens and then
everything is normal for a while. In the back of (13) their minds people will be
wondering when it will happen again.
