What kind of afterlife have you written/plan to write?
Have you read any novels with interesting afterlife theories/worlds?
As for myself, I've always considered 'What Dreams May Come' to be the most incredible afterlife novel I've ever read. I'm talking about the book, not the movie--there are differences. It seriously blew my mind the first time I read it.... although my copy mysteriously disappeared soon after. (That reminds me I need to go buy another copy.)
As for an afterlife I've written-- I had one in my fanfiction since my MC had more near-death experiences than a hundred men. That's no joke. I killed him off so many times, just to see how I could bring him back from the brink. One time, he even woke up in the middle of his own funeral, but that's going off-topic.
Anyway, there came a need for a limbo. I created a lakeside setting to start out with. Anyone who touched the lake's waters would grow forgetful. The depth of the lake depended on a person's willpower--they'd only sink if they didn't have the will to continue living. Now, those who sink come into the grasp of the Shinigami (Reapers) who are kinda like demon pirahna. These guys would tear into a person's soul, removing memories and the 'taint' of lingering life.
This lake is like a double-sided coin. Once you sink far enough, you start to rise on the other side. By the time you resurface on the other side of limbo, your soul has been purified by the reapers and you're ready to pass through a Gate of Reincarnation.
There's some more details in there specific to the fanfic, but that's the general idea.

She and her husband so deserve this success, as they've been through so much crap with the cancer.

It was a blast to write about angels and heaven, especially since I've written this book with lots of humor. The theories portrayed in the book about how angels and heaven work, however, I'm certain are far from the truth.

Although I do not have a real belief in the afterlife (just curiosity), my best short stories, that have won prizes, concerned an angel, ghosts, (one of whom is the main character), or the process of passing through.
I must be weird!
