Writer's Workshop Thursday: The Haunting

The following prompt comes from Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop Thursday.

Mama’s Losin’ It

“One need not be a chamber to be haunted. One need not be a house. The brain has corridors surpassing material place”. -Emily Dickinson What haunts you?

I am haunted by things that I cannot remember. There are wide spans of my life that I cannot remember and I wonder what I don't remember and WHY I don't remember it. I know it shouldn't be this way.

I am haunted by guilt, guilt over things that I didn't do and should have, or did, but didn't do soon enough...And guilt over things that I did do, but shouldn't have done at all, but should have found other ways to deal with the hurt and anger I was feeling at the time.

Sometimes I am haunted by my dreams. Some of them are just too weird to figure out, while others are so vivid that it is hard to tell what is real and what isn't. Then, there are those that come true. It isn't always clear which ones are message dreams or what the message is.

What about you? What haunts you?

Please join the fun by visiting the linky over at Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop!


  1. I'd say you covered pretty much every way to be haunted. Guilt is a big one, it's a fine line between forgiveness and remembering...

    Followed you over from Mama Kat's.

    Thank you for visiting and for commenting.

    Now, if I could just figure a way to write it all out, maybe I'd have a horror story to rival anything that the great horror writers have come up with because some of the dreams were real doozies.

    Thanks again!
