A Touch To The Neck


There are stories, some people say,  that are so scary that when you hear them or tell them you can feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, your flesh feels like it’s crawling  over the bones in your hands, up your arms to your shoulders up to the back of your skull  in an effort, I suppose, to get away from the terror that your ears took in and sent to your brain.

But that’s just a bunch of bull puckey, though the idea of your skin leaping off your bones in order to save itself is an interesting image to carry around, however, what you’re probably feeling are the ghosts and demons- like the ones  temporarily trapped in these Urban Legends- who usually introduce themselves  by a touch to your hand, your shoulder,

your neck.

All you have to do to free them and meet them- is tell their story.

There are three videos here with 10 ways each to help them

Mbarker Writing Exercise: A Passion for Narrative Part I

The writer is:

A storyteller

Gertrude Abercrombie

an enchanteur

a guide

Gertrude Abercrombie

and swimming in the resovior

in the writer’s head are


waiting to be named and set free

music that plays from one single moment

that no one else can hear

bitter memories


and memories that smell like burnt sugar and dry brown grass in a field full of dead flowers at midnight.

Gertrude Abercrombie
