“Mr Leaves was here” - those were the first words out of my daughter’s mouth that morning. I dismissed the chatter as normal for a seven year old girl. It didn’t seem strange to me that she would develop a new imaginary friend, especially under the circumstances; change can do that to a kid, forcing them to create something to hold on to, making the world seem more secure.
We had decided to move away from the city, to find somewhere a little less hectic, somewhere we could call home. As a doctor, I had to wait until an opportunity arose and was delighted when an opening appeared in the sleepy town of Windarm. It was a quiet place filled with pristine cottages, sun-baked streets, and lush hedgerows; not too big, not too small - perfect for the three of us. My wife, Erin, and I had named our daughter Karen, after an Aunt, but we always called her “Kip” instead. It was an old English word my Grandfather used when he was going to sleep - Karen loved to sleep more than most, and so “Kip” seemed to suit her just fine.

In the first of my new narration series, where I'll be hopefully sending shivers down one or two spines, I have narrated the excellent ghost story by cinema legends John Carpetner and Debra Hill. Sit back and relax, no need to panic, it's just The Fog...

|No Sleep was Given...|
It's been a while since I've posted to the No Sleep OOC, and I've missed writing specifically for No Sleep, life keeps getting in the way. That's why I'm challenging myself and wondered if you would like to join me? It's a bit of fun, and a good exercise for those trying to up their output.
Here are the rules:
1) Once a week you will sit down at your computer for 2 - 3 hours maximum.
2) In this time you have to write and proof an entire story.
3) It can be as short as you like, but it has to be under 2,000 words.
4) You have to upload the story at the end of the writing session.
I'm really interested to see what everyone can come up with. My first attempt can be found here. I'm going to be doing this for the next 5 weeks, perhaps I'll make it a running habit even after that. Please post your efforts in the challenge thread on the OOC or on the forums and we can all give each other feedback :)

A security guard spends the night in an empty nursing home hoping to quickly pass through the mundane hours. Little does he know that he is not alone, and that the nursing home contains something extraordinary, haunting, and chilling.

I've just released the first part to my new horror series The Sins of Abigail Flesh. Each month I'll be uploading a new part, with each chapter being a self contained story and a piece of a greater horror mystery puzzle which you can solve. This is exclusively for my Patreon subscribers. If you'd like to read this dark and twisted tale, please click the link below and contribute as little as $1 to gain access. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. You are indeed creepily awesome.
