Arkansas: Where Stories Come From?
Story, Arkansas, where bikers are bards.
Then, if you drive down the road a spell, you find what you need to get that story on the page...
Okay, we've discovered where the Why ("Y") resides. All we need now is the Who, How, Where, What and When....
I discovered these towns and signs in western Arkansas two days ago. (It's a 55-mile drive along Hwys 27, 88 and 270 to get from Story, through Pencil Bluff to "Y" City.)
I also once slept in Story City, Iowa (itself in Story County) and have photographed and drawn the Book Cliffs of Utah and Colorado. What writerly locales have you found?
