Anybody have any advice?

i'm writting a ghost story for english. and the plot is, that this girl is wandering down a hall of a mansion and she has no idea how she got there and no memory from b4. along the walls are paintings (of her a some guy... but she doesn't know it yet) and in the end she figures out that the way to get out is to follow the paintings. they are like a timeline of her life with this guy, and it keeps going right up.... to her death. Yes that means she's a ghost. but i'm having a little trouble getting up to that point. heres where i left off at

Try to let the story write itself. It should flow logically from one point to the next. Like show how the pictures influence something small, like maybe the discovery of a secret along the way, and it keeps building up to more important things until she finds the final exit. I don't know, just a thought. Good luck!

Cool story. Have her slow down occasionally so she can really focus on certain "milestone" paintings of her life, like...say..a painting of her graduating from college, then maybe one of her with the guy and her first child, etc... Explain the emotions she is experiencing with each new revelation about her past life. Is she beginning to recall things that fill in the gaps? And where is the guy now?

perhaps the paintings kinda come out of the wall a little? In that, scenes from her life are "happening" around her as opposed to simply being in still shots. She is sort of running through her past.

Who was the guy and what relationship did she have with him? You need to insert some emotion, fear, anxiety, happiness or sadness. You need the good or the bad to go along with this. You are doing good. Keep working, you will get there.
