Setting Inspiration: Misty Mountain

“Here be dragons.”

Is this view the first an explorer in your story has of a mythical mountain kingdom he has been searching for? Could this be the Olymp, Pantheon of Gods?

What are the clouds hiding below? Maybe your world is split into above and below?

The possibilities for plot settings are endless!

This is actually Mount Roraima in southern Venezuela. The photo was taken by Uwe George.

Setting Inspiration: Derelict house

This beautiful photo of an abandoned house is by Bottle Bell Photography, who shared it on Facebook and it showed up in a writing group I follow.

Perfect setting for my ghost story! I wonder what this house used to be. A home? A school? An asylum/sanatorium?
