So last night I finished writing a book I’ve been tweaking on. The entire plot of this book hinges on the Small Town atmosphere. That sense of home has really been on my mind because I hope the heart of a small town will transfer well to the page for those whose never lived it. Otherwise, it’s gonna look like a bunch of backwoods loons who should better understand the dangers of locking their doors at night. 🙂
I tried making examples and some big point of this, but I just confused myself. See the first sentence about finishing a book. I’m brain fried. I’ll just get right to it.
It’s not the size of the town that makes it the classic “Small Town”. It’s not the region either. The “Small Town” could be in the north, midwest, west, heck overseas somewhere. Doesn’t matter. What matters is the *community* involved. If you don’t have that community, well then, you just have a bunch of people living next door to one another and that’s it.
