First 100 words:

Rain was falling in a gentle drizzle, wrapping the landscape of Dartmoor in a white blanket of fog which was slowly turning into mist. Nora was walking along the muddy road, her worn and crude farmer’s boots were not suitable for the September weather and her feet had been both wet and cold now for a very long time. She pulled her thin woollen hooded cloak around her, but it did little to keep the chilly dampness away.

About this story

I wrote this short story after a holiday to Postbridge in Dartmoor last summer. Dartmoor is a wild and slightly eerie moor, which have many legends and stories about both pixies and ghosts.

The background research for “Castle in the Mist” included British mythology, focusing mainly on fairies and pixies. I had lots of help from the website

The story was also inspired by “The Hound of the Baskervilles” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell” by Susanna Clarke (I can highly recommend reading both books).
