2. Research can help. The internet, library, etc. can give you ideas into folklore and what has been passed down from generations and cultures. You can incorporate these ideas into your story.

3. Make the characters your own. What is special about your paranormal characters and what do they have to say about their situations and circumstances? Use your own take on them to bring originality to your work.

4. Have fun! Whatever you write about, you should always enjoy the process of writing. Sure there might be stumbling blocks, but being creative should be enjoyable and fulfilling. Always follow your passion.
