Today’s list is contained in one short video.
We can find ideas for stories everywhere and we can find settings for our ideas with research. This short video showcases 10 abandoned places. Many are considered haunted and all were abandoned for different reasons.
This video provides ideas to research and the links below offer a research resource.
Begin your research with these links:
Imagine, if writing science fiction or fantasy, these abandoned places provide the setting or the model for the setting of another world torn by…war, virus, murder…any sort of annihilation.
For historical fiction, the senses are on overload as these locales are rife with ideas…the effect of war, greed, nature, illness on the fate of the residents.
Mystery/Thriller writers may be considering circumstances for a villain who caused the devastation. Or the hero who rescued the town.
Romance authors might use a variation of one these abandoned places for an atypical love nest, or to set up two people searching for remains of past lives and find each other, instead.
What ideas do these ghostly structures conjure up for you?
