Hey y’all. Time for another Week in Review. This week’s photo is one I took a few years ago.
In November 2015, my husband and I visited Vicksburg, Mississippi. We both like history, particularly that of the Civil War era. Of course, when I learned there was a “Ghost Tour,” I had to go.
I’ll not get into the details of the tour (and no, I didn’t see any ghosts) but one stop was the headquarters of Confederate General John Pemberton. However, the house next door was the one that caught my eye. While our tour guide told about Pemberton, I was busy taking photos of this old Victorian home.
It was perfect for a story I had in mind. An older women living as a virtual recluse inside her home.
Of course, like many of my ideas, the stories are a long time coming to fruition. However, Woman in Black will be part of my upcoming short story collection. You’ll hear more about this one and others in the months and weeks to come.
In the meantime, here are this week’s writing links:
