I enjoyed traveling when I had the chance. As a child, we moved a lot. Sometimes, we ended up living in a haunted house.
Those experiences opened me up to the field of the paranormal. With a history degree in hand, I signed on to paranormal research and workshop outings. I learned about eras, peoples, and towns.
Since I have written articles that were published about the paranormal, I decided to list where I have been that in some form or another had a supernatural history. Private homes to public domains, all are enumerated on my Paranormal Research / Workshop page.
Travel helps the imagination grow. Add in some ghosts and you have a fiction novel to boot!
So as a writer, if you have not traveled yet, then branch out. Travel experiences can only help your writing. it certainly cannot hinder the imagination!
Have a really weird day!
