I have spent most of my day today re-researching material for my work in progress.
I lost all my notes after vacation. Printed notes. Handwritten notes.
Not good. Not good at all.
I lost my timeline, my calendar–all of it.
Now that I’ve re-established my facts, I’ll probably find it in the couch cushions or some such place.
But I digress.
It’s dangerous for ADD researchers (squirrel!) to take off on a research binge. It can lead you to some really strange places. (My good friend, Pedro, knows this well. In fact, he calls it a journey into a wiki black hole as one topic leads to another and another…)
Today as I was trying to figure out whether to dock my book’s steamboat at Clarksville or Port Royal, Tennessee, I learned that Port Royal is a ghost town.
No, seriously, a real ghost town. I mean, yeah, it is a ghost town in that there’s not a town there anymore, but there’s also some sort of terrifying entity that actually poisoned someone there in 1820 and is still hanging around.
Far be it from me to keep the same fascinating experiences I’ve been through today from my readers.
So what do you think? Do you believe in ghosts? I have a theory about them that has to do with demonic activity. What say you?
