Okay, so I like to write about royal dudes. Turns out their natural habitat is royal palaces, and . . . well, I've never lived in one. Visited a few, but I only have so much time available for visiting the dwellings of long-dead monarchs. So what's a visual writer to do when she craves looking at a palace to inspire her own descriptions?
I visit this site, which has pages of historical palaces all over the world.
