It's 4:10am and I can't sleep. Don't you hate it when you wake up too early? You know you'll be exhausted and a bit grumpy all day long...but you can't go back to sleep??? Ugh.
Anyway... on with Free Stuff Friday, hurray!
Today's contest has to do with my WIP.
I need the name of a fictional town.
The story is set in small town Idaho but I don't like to write using actual and real towns.
There are just too many constraints of where the Starbucks actually is or researching maps to get the street names and locations correct. I just finished a historical novel and am really looking forward to writing something with a tiny, teency bit less research.
Here's how to enter
Leave your vote for a fictional small town name in the comment box. I'll use my favorite in my current work in progress.
I'm all about fairness, however so the prize of
a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble
will be a random drawing of everyone who leaves a comment.
(drawing to be held Sunday night for Monday's post so feel free to comment until then)
AND! Tell me...do you prefer fictional towns or do you incorporate real ones in your writing? How do you deal with the constraints of using a real town if you do?
