Use your travels to inspire your writing

Here's a post I wrote over on Writers on the Move about how to get inspiration for your fiction from your travels.

Tip 1:  Steal from History. Told well, history is one long story.  When you travel, visit museums, read informational plaques, take walking tours.  You'll find fascinating details of history's crazy characters and its dark and bright moments.  Take elements from here and there and twist them into your own story.  When I was in Znojmo, Czech Republic, the history of the catacombs there fascinated me.  I later incorporated them--in my own style, with many details changed--into my novel, Far-Knowing.
