Stumbling Around In Search of My Story
I'm working on a story about a de-mobbed GI who returns to East Tennessee in 1947 to take over the family business only to be confronted by the (supernatural) echoes of his past. It's supposed to be a ghost story and I'm struggling a bit to find my way inside the character's head.
This photo made me think of him sleeing on a cot upstairs above the hardware store, breathing stale air and about to awaken from a nightmare too real to be a dream.
Stumbling, stumbling, stumbling.
