Going Home

In March, I did the Oddmonth reading in Pittsburgh, the city I was born in. Strange to think how little of a city we see when we live in it. More than that, how many neighborhoods make up a city, how each of them is a world all their own.

For today's prompt, write about your hometown. First, write about the places you knew. Your old haunts and favorite hang-outs.

But then, explore the places you didn't know. The other side of the river, the boulevard and its big houses, the industrial area near the railroad tracks. Use Google maps or zillow to pick a spot and get a picture of it. Write from that image. What it's like to live there, the sights, the smells. Imagine if you had grown up there.
