Get out of the house
This is my writing sample using a skeleton plot.
An old rundown school hall is up for sale. The people trying to sell the house we’re very strange. They had no friends or family.
No one knows but inside the hall lives a “staff” of ghosts, including a butler and other servants. The ghosts have huge mouths and freaky eyes, one of them even wearying a bowtie.
Every time the ghosts try to leave they always get caught in the wild breeze. They just can’t get out. Trust me no ghost wants to be caught in a breeze. That happened once but they never came back.
It is a very important to the ghosts that like the new owners. If they have to share “their” hall, they feel they should have a say on who moves in. So they begin talking about the ghost with the bowtie and then they talked about who should live in the hall. “I think we only allow messy people move into this hall” said the ghost with the bowtie.
“I think we should only let clean people move in,” said his brother.
Frustrated, the ghosts started to fight.
A series of people come to visit the hall to see if they want to buy it. First a cheerful, happy family come in but the ghosts scare them away by jumping out in front of them. Excited, delighted, thrilled a teacher comes in the ghosts scare her off by flying up to her and saying BOO!
Last but not least a young, caring couple visits the hall. The ghosts try to scare the young couple away but there not afraid of anything the ghosts do. Eventually the ghosts become great friends with the people. The ghosts told the couple what it was like when they lived and the people told the ghosts what it was like outside the hall.
The couple brought the school hall. The ghosts took back their old jobs and help the couple live happily in their new home.
