Are these real ghost stories, fictional or about someone we may have known that has passed away? Or is it about ourselves after we die? Thanks for your patience, I wanted to check before signing up. :)

It is make up. You pretend you are the ghost. You can be anyone you want....not necc yourself

Do these have to be incredibly accurate? I mean if I write in the first person am I restricted to how the person should have spoken at the time of their death or is there soem lee-way here? All of my facts are historical accurate but my speech is a little more modern and mature (no bad words or anything inappropriate) than the ghost would have used when she died... but she is a ghost in modern times so can that be acceptable. I really don't want to start all over again.

ElizabethObviously 08/ 8/2009 #

yes its a ghost in modern time so no it does not have to be completely accurate as far as speak goes

Ok my story is finally done... now to embellish and so on. I hope my partners like it (I think my death was a little longer than it needed to be but I loved it). Will send soon.
