Second year in a row I contact a spirit from beyond the grave.
For a few months I’d thought about doing a spirit slate effect for the Halloween open mic, but my budget has changed significantly in that time, so I can’t really buy any new props. I decided to switch tactics and go for automatic writing instead. There was some concern that it wouldn’t have a big impact since the materials I was using weren’t as fancy or esoteric, but thankfully it got a great reaction. Just goes to show that the old masters were right – it’s not about the props; it’s about skill and technique. I’ll do my best to remember that.
