Sorry to hear about the recent ghoulishness. You’re not the first person to ask me about this – though you are the first to do it on what appears to be cardboard. Everything all right over there, Jim?
Anyway, here’s the deal.
Libraries are a little freaky because they are — haunted by the ghosts of wannabe writers.
Let me give you a moment for that to sink in.
Okay, let’s keep going.
Every literary wannabe, at some time or another, sat in a library, looked around at all the great works that have been written over the years and thought… I can write stuff better than all of this!
And with that, they set off to… do nothing. For years. But then one day, it finally happened – they opened a word document and got to work on… well, some random thing that nobody ever read.
Fast forward a few years, the book is still unfinished, never to be published. The writer? Even though they never finished their book, they still hold to their idea that their book would have been better than anything else in the library.
So now that they’re floating around, all ghoulish and such, they haunt the library, making everyone feel creeped out, even though nothing seems to be happening.
But for what purpose? There is no purpose, only hurt feelings – just like most books.
Until next time, keep it factual out there!
