Prompt: Ghost Story


Hello Creative Writer,

At our last meeting we discussed the seasonal necessity of writing a ghost story.

As an assignment we have given ourselves two weeks to write a 1,000 word ghost story based on a local ghost story or legend.

Lucky for us, our area, Johnstown, PA,  is full of wonderful legends. There are stories related to the floods that have devastated this area in the past but also local legends dating back to Indian folk tales. Providing us with plenty of inspiration to choose from.

So, get your spooky juices flowing and tell us the story behind the legend. What happened to manifest the ghost?
