Emerge Unstoppable in 2011!

Emerge Unstoppable in 2011! That's my mission this year. Join me as I blog about life during divorce, raising a three year old, and the fight to live one's dream of being a writer, a graphic designer, a prayerfully a success at it all.

Thursday's Paranormal File - The End of the Story

I (aka Lucy) grew up in a subdivision that was constructed atop Healy Plantation just north of Macon, Georgia. Active during the Civil War, the remnants of the plantation offer plenty of history to inspire one's imagination. The subdivision is riddled with graves, both marked and unmarked, and is known to experience odd paranormal activity. The snake and the stallion, though strangely romantic, did appear to me in just this way. And the whisper, well, that is wholly true as well. Not scary, but very real.

I have always believed in life beyond what we know. Though I have a hard time wanting to believe it is something tortured or gruesome, I do feel that it exists. Owning this belief is what drives me to be a storyteller of the Southern derivation.

Tanya Michaels (Michna) challenged us in a workshop not too long ago to call out our "voice" in three words. When I think about those words, ghost stories come to mind. They are part of who I am and what I want to share. So, be it a romance or a mystery, somewhere there will always be entwined a ghoul or two.

Until Monday, I remain Unstoppable.


  1. I had almost forgotten this one...
    Years ago we tried to watch a video of the movie 'Glory'-- a civil war epic that was really big in the 90's. Think that was the name. We tried to watch it-- but every single time there would be a lightning storm, hail, or some other crazy weather popup that would fry our VCR. We gave up after 3 VCR/movie replacements.
    Turned out our house had been built on top of a civil war battleground that had also been an Indian burial site. Too much of a coincidence for us.
    We don't live there anymore.

  2. Whoa. I just got goosebumps. Maybe I need to rethink my view on ghosts and the paranormal. And then write a book about it! ;-)

  3. There's nothing like combining history with goosebumps. Thanks for joining the conversation.

  4. Very cool! I love when I hear that stuff like this really does happen. It makes me wonder just how fictional some of these stories we read really are.....

    Thanks for sharing it with us!
