I would try to write about an extraordinary recovery except that details could identify the patient.

And I'm not a good writer.

@herring_RN

Make up some details to disguise the pt.

Show not tell is the basic rule.

ie. Describe scenes--what you see, hear, etc..

Do an outline of scenes--give it a try-- sometimes your subconscious takes over once you start--you have the idea, that is the first step!! Best to you..

I've written up a couple of ghost stories to submit for Halloween, but I'm having some trouble figuring out the best area to post them under. Is there a section that is best for fiction? I'm thinking Nurses Rock or Nurses and Spirituality, but I don't want to post in the wrong place.

Thanks!
