Probably best to do this one in your head. Especially if people are already looking at you oddly for “Flip Your Hair Day“.
Your ghost can be your past or future self, someone dead that you admire or a deceased relative. You can tell them anything you want and I promise they will keep your secret!
Some examples in case you are drawing a blank:
Is the way your spouse chews driving you nuts? Vent to your late Aunt. You will feel better and no one’s feelings get hurt.
Stuck on a plot point in your novel? Brainstorm ideas with E.M Forster.
Really irritated that your past self passed up a trip to Italy? Go ahead, yell at her. (And start making plans with your future self to go to Italy!)
I would like to have a chat with Agatha Christie. 1. What really happened during her “lost days”? 2. Did she ever find writing hard? 3. How did she manage to write so much? 4. Does she think she could get away with committing a murder in real life? 5. What was her favorite breakfast?
I am pretty sure her answers (in my head) are: 1. Everyone was driving me nuts so I went to a spa for massages, a facial and a lot of sleep. 2. No. 3. I let the housework go. 4. Yes. 5. Porridge except on Sundays when I like waffles and sausages.
Let us know who you talked to and if it was a good conversation? (Sometimes ghost can be annoying when all they do is moan and groan!) Agatha and I really are curious.
