The Horror of Being Possessed

5. You have been possessed by the devil! How do you deal with this and how do you make every effort to keep your soul possible? Feel free to go in a different direction from other possession movies.

I don’t watch horror so I don’t know about the typical possession in a horror movie. I’d write about the feeling of seeing yourself and not being yourself. Have you ever looked down at your own hand and felt it was not your hand? Some one else had taken it over. It’s a creepy feeling. You can become fixated on your hand and convince yourself it really isn’t your hand. Of course it is. Once you break your concentration on it everything goes back to normal. That’s how I would write about possession, sort of a self possession.
