I'm currently in San Francisco, staring out across the bay towards Marine County. Somewhere within those fog-shrouded hills lays the Haunted Mansion. I was there two years ago. It is really haunted. It's really scary. But there was safety in numbers and those of us who were there depended on each other. This year there are twice as many of us. The number of people is going to do one of two things. Either it will drive the spirits farther in the house and we'll have less experiences, or the added energy will stir the spirits up. I'm not sure which one I want. I'm also not sure what will happen.
We'll find out together.
To keep appraised, be sure to monitor the Haunted Mansion Blog. We'll also be posting updates on Twitter using hashtag #hmr12
Here's a link to the pictures from the first Haunted Mansion Writer's Retreat.
