10 Gorgeous Paranormal Pinterests to Inspire Your Writing

At age six Carrie Fudgewallow exhumed  her father's skull, and would be within 3 feet of it for the rest of her life. At 89 she ground the skull into powder, drank it in tea, and died.

These Pinterest boards were chosen based on quality (admittedly subjective) and quantity, but here are my top 10 faves.

1. Haunted: Haunting, creepy, supernatural images;

2. Another Haunted: More haunted images, but with a focus on haunted houses (or haunted-looking houses);

3. Ghost Pictures: Just like it says – images of ghosts caught on film;

4. Dragons and Sea Monsters: Fabulous art histories from various times and cultures.

5. Mermaids: Over 600 images of mermaids, many from pop culture. (I love the mermaid quote by Anaïs Nin at the top of the board.)

6. Vampires: No paranormal list is complete without those creatures of the night. I like this board because of its mix – from 50s kitsch to truly creepy modern vampire gore.

7. Witchcraft: This board’s header says it’s the place to “celebrate the beauty, magic and wisdom of witchcraft.” And it does.

8. More Witchcraft: This board focuses more on haunting images of witches, but it’s not limited to the female form.

9. Paranormal: An eclectic collection of paranormal images. What I appreciate about it are the detailed captions,

10. Supernatural: It’s hard to do a supernatural search without turning up Sam and Dean. But this board manages to avoid the TV show (not that I’ve anything against it) with a mostly 20th century collection of colorful posters, book covers, and other supernatural images.
