Writing Tip: Road Trip Notes

When you travel by car, note the names of roads, churches, businesses, schools–whatever–that strike you as especially colorful.These often add vivid specificity to a story or scene. You are more likely to find compelling names along state or county roads than along interstates, in small towns rather than in cities.

Sometimes just the name is sufficient to start a story. Consider Bone Yard Road or Fresh Fire Church of God as possible settings.
