Finding Inspiration

November 7, 2011

In case you’ve not noticed, I’m a huge history fan.

One of the reasons is that I’ve constantly finding neat story ideas in news articles on historical items. For example, I just read this little piece:

http://archaeologicalmuseum.jhu.edu/the-collection/object-stories/a-roman-lead-curse-tablet/

The first thing that popped into my mind was an urban fantasy tale, based on the idea that a supernatural being had been cursed. When the archaeologist pulls the nail from the lead curse sheets, the supernatural being is free for the first time in two thousand years.

Keep on writing!
