Stories: The starting point

Myth & Moor: The starting point.

“Here’s a provactive question from Eleanor Cameron, excerpted from her fine essay, ‘A Writer’s Journey’:

“I have told more than once how much place means to me in the books I have lived with year after year and read again and again, place not as backdrop or as a background to be worked up in order to get on with the action. Place, for me, must be loved and known; it gives rise to the book and its characters so that the sense of it could never come if its place meant nothing, or I had not experienced it aesthetically and emotionally.”

Place has always been highly important to me in establishing a story. Here’s another writer’s way of looking at it. Places are where stories happen.
