SO. I am writing a story. I can’t tell you if it’ll be 100 pages or if it’ll be 1000 but I am writing. I guess any author can’t pinpoint exactly what it’ll be until the very end when all is said and done but it’s always a tough road full of bumps and crazy turns.
I’m not an expert in writing fiction and while it’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I was a child, I doubt myself more often than not. So I’m going to use this website as a medium of choice to ask questions and hopefully receive answers. Be it from another author, from an avid book lover to one who just wants to voice their opinions. Are you okay with that? I know I sure am. I am open to any and all opinions, suggestions, advice and criticisms.
Help me out and I’ll be forever grateful!
Question: As a reader would you prefer to read about a made up fiction town (aka Blossom Hills, South Carolina: Ho,e of the best peach pie) or a real town with real street names and real historical value (aka Pendleton South Carolina).
However keep this in mind: I am looking for a small town that has a fairy tale like setting. Everything has a place and it seems almost too good to be true. The story is based in the small town but doesn’t rely on the town to move the story along. I feel like I should use a real town, but then again I want to be able to make up street names and store names without the fear of getting something wrong.
