It’s November – NaNoWriMo season. To help you out, I created a number of writing ideas to help you with your NaNoWriMo Project. Good luck creating your 50,000 words!
Traveling north today I noticed a perfect flat butte; a long table stretching over the top of a mountain big enough to seat the whole family for thanksgiving dinner, the edges folding and round like a chocolate brown table cloth.
And I thought, hey, there is a perfect butte. and just as I focused on the butte, we passed the sign reading “Butte County”, that’s why it’s named Butte County. Got it.
What do you pass by and take for granted? Is there a story behind the name of your town? Is there a reason for the name of the county you live in? Find out, and write about it. This is also a great way to create the provenance for a fictional country or city.
