Hey There,

Do any of you keep a written journal of unusual facts or ghost stories?

I've been keeping what I call a "Black Morgue" for a while now. It helps me keep things organized, and in a special place..so if I ever need inspiration, off I go to The Morgue

I don't kep a journal of such things, but I do have a library of unusual books & many related items saved on my computer. If I am working on a routine, I will write the story out to help me work through the effect.

The Black Morgue is a wonderful title Smile

Thank you, Ichazod.

If any of you are interested in a method of making a cheap, but antique and arcane-looking journal, let me know.

Not just making a book look old by aging it (soaking it in tea/coffe/cola etc.), but also how to either make one from scratch or rebind a cheap journal into a more suitable cover.

The Black Morgue that I'm writing in now is 30% store bought and 70% scratch built.

I keep a journal where I jot down ideas and questions I would like answers to. This has helped me adapt, create, enhance, discard, and learn from my performances and effects.

It works for me to keep one. Smile
