Developing a story

Today is a perfect day to do some writing. I decided to take a break from prompt driven work because I need to depend more on my imagination and less on the imagination of others. I still have to goal of finishing a ghost story before the end of the month.

The premise of my ghost story:

Woman lets a large farm house in the south. The property comes with the caretakers. What we are not sure about is whether or not she is the ghost in the story or if the caretakers are the ghosts. It isn't until a demolition crew shows up to level that house that we find out who is alive and who is dead in this story and why they are there to begin with.

Just for fun what kind of story would you write based on the above perimeters and the photo I nabbed from google images?

I would love to read what you would do.

Your imagination is vivid. Mine is asleep, so I can't even think of anything more intriguing than what you thought of.

Haven't been here in a while. Sounds like you're doing well, writing and creating. That's great.
