Hello,

I am new here, and, like many of you have been searching all of my life for some sort of proof of the afterlife.

To be honest, I haven't found much and despite my collections of ghost stories, my avid watching of supernatural reality television, and my visits to haunted locations, I still find myself in need  of proof that SOMETHING exists after this.  I'm assuming I'm not alone.

I call this being a Ghost Skeptic....someone who is quite obsessed with the supernatural and life after death, but someone who still doesn't quite believe it exists. 

So I'm writing a book...an article...I'm trying to gather a collection of TRUE stories from people who have had experiences.  I'm not the first one, nor will I be the last, but this is something I am very dedicated to.

Please, if you have a story, let me know in your reply.  If you'd rather tell me over private e-mails, I'd be happy to do that as well, just give me your e-mail address as I will be making ALL replies screened and will not post any you would rather not have me post.  Having as many details in your stories is very important...the names of places and buildings, dates, years, etc.  Names can be changed if you wish.  

I will not use past posted stories, as I will require your permission to use said story if I actually do finish this.  Even if I don't, I will send all of you what I have compiled.

Either way, this is just the beginning of this adventure (well the prologue is written) and I hope to find real people on Live Journal to participate. 

Thank you for your time, and here's to not being a skeptic any longer!

If this is not allowed, I apologize.

In my personal opinion, writing a book or an article about someone's experiences is just kind of ... blah.

I mean, I could write you up a wonderfully fantastic "personal account" that you really have no way of independently verifying.

Plus, I think the heart and soul of "haunted places" of any kind comes not from what might be there, but instead from the experiences we have while visiting these places.

While I appreciate your opinions, that really isn't what I asked for. This might end up just being a personal project, as I myself have not had any experiences and really am looking to be convinced. I must disagree with the unsuccess of "other people's stories", as shown by the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. None of those stories are "verified", which is made very clear and I plan to do that as well. If one of the hundreds of stories MIGHT be true, maybe you've turned a skeptic into a believer. That's what I'm picturing, really.
