This short story existed on the old forums and was never completed. It was for a Halloween Horror challenge I issued last year. I'd like to put this on the web page when finished, or add it to the horror edition of Anthology 4. Thanks in advance to anyone that helps.

All I saw was one missing word and i do that constantly when the flow takes over all in all well written and tricky because I thought that the fake priest was a werewolf lol. Well done.

I will actually try to give you some more feedback I'm new to editing.

I can take a crack at it, if I can get my word processing program to track changes correctly. (I don't have Word.)

I'll try to do it within the next day or two.

Thanks Andrew and Ghost! Any feedback/editing is welcome.

Ted, this was to be my short horror add to Anthology 4 if there's still time on that boat. If not, there's always book 5.

Here's my editing pass. Hope the file works for you all right after going through Open Office.

Given the "oh my" I can't picture anyone but George Takei in the role of the old man...

Up to you, but you might want to consider deleting the second-to-last sentence (the one in italics). The reader can easily figure out what's going on, and it might be more effective if it's not spelled out explicitly like that.

That boat is certainly open. After Laura looked through the extensive collection she noted that many of the stories were with atmosphere but had little thrills and chills that I would have expected from horror writing contest. As you may know, I am a pretty big horror fan so to make that dream real, the editing for all stories related to horror will get a goose-bump up for chillsin my editing fingers.

How long is a story for Wayfinder generally?
