Ranging from the old, abandoned graveyards that have not been taken care of for centuries through the modern graveyards adorned by twisted, creepy trees, all the way to interstellar junkyards that give any admiral the chill whenever they pass through them, it is undeniable that the resting places of the dead have a special place in our heart. When it comes to horror, these places are often used to invoke a sense of dread in both the reader and the protagonist. Even if the genre of a particular story is not horror, graveyards are often considered ominous because of their connotation to death. Your exercise is to create a graveyard for the dead that is thought of as ominous or fearsome. You can use the following questions as a guide if you wish or you can work on your own. What is the name of the graveyard? How large is this graveyard? Is it just a small chapel or does it span kilometres? Where is it located? Is it easily accessible or hidden? Is it close to a city? Is it a part of a city? Is the location of the graveyard special in some way? If so, what makes it special? Are there any local legends or anecdotes about it? If so, what are they? Does the place have a mysterious guardian? Or maybe a grumpy gravedigger who also watches over the graves at night? Does the graveyard have something inside it which is considered particularly creepy? If so, what is it? Is there a famous event which is connected to the location of the graveyard? If so, what is it, and how does it relate to the reputation of the place? Is there a particularly famous person or object that rests in this graveyard? If so, what are they famous for and why were they buried here? Is the graveyard respected by the people who live around it, or are the graves regularly robbed? Is the graveyard a significant part of the life of the locals? Are there any rituals, traditions or perhaps tests of courage that involve it? If so, what are they?
