Creative Writing

The beauty with creative writing is that you can make up whatever story you want.

Most of the time you needn't do research unless you're writing about a certain time period.
Of course, you need to make your "world" interesting for the reader.

I like to incorporate the area that I live in with my stories. Stephen King always had his stories based in Main where he lives so I understand now why he chose to do that.

Being familiar with the area makes it easy to pull real people, places, and events into the story.

That's why The Magic Herb is about the mountains in PA. The trails can be filled with animals lots of trees and heavy thicket and beautiful views with waterfalls.

That is why Nora could so easily have gotten lost.
