Entries for Blog City are here and maybe other surprises.
| Prompt: Joy asked if we use real life place settings or fictional settings in our writing.
When I write Jane Austen type or Regency stories, they always take place in England. Same with my Medieval stories. When I write my fairy tales, I guess they take place in England or France. I never really thought about those Stories, where I want them to take place.
I wrote a pirate story that took place in St. Augustine, Florida because I just visited there and saw this guy who looked like Captain Jack Sparrow. He smiled and I did a double take. The young woman in my story was a bar maid and lived at an apartment near by. The apartment was the cat store in this settlement from years ago and now this settlement is a series of stores. This settlement was by the Spanish Fort and it was in my story as well. This setting had a true meaning. I had been there but my story took place in the 1800's.
Another story I wrote was about a teen-age girl making friends with a wild mustang, black stallion and it took place out west. I had Montana in mind.
My Southern Innocence story was about a woman in Tennessee during the Civil War.
My one vampire story was about a 300 year old female vampire who lived in Maine and owned an antique store. My supernatural stories always take place in Maine and England. Thank you, Dark Shadows.
There you have it. My story settings.
