About intenttowin

I've been writing since I was in high school. I love researching for articles and eBook projects. Recently, I began steadily writing for my blog and for guest blog slots. You meet great people all over the world. I hope to continue to expand my reach across this awesome Earth. I love reading, crocheting (making and wearing my projects), bird watching and nature. It is all around us if we will just look around and look up to the sky. I've stabbed around at writing this novel for a couple of years. I completed the 50,000 words needed in Nov 2016 for NaNoWriMo. I have a beginning, middle, and end. I need to add more depth to my characters. I need to revise and add red herrings. Stick with me and I'll post up sections for your remarks.

My Home Town Cookeville TN USA 3

My father’s parents were born in this area in 1902. My parents were born in 1932, and were married in 1952. I always thought that was an interesting play on the number 2. As with most towns in Tennessee in the 1920’s and 1930’s, there wasn’t a lot going on in the way of entertainment. Most of the area inhabitants were farmers who worked long hours to bring in crops and livestock.

My Hometown Cookeville TN, USA

Tennessee is sort of a funny shaped state. North to South, it is only 116 miles, while East to West it stretches 482 miles. Tennessee has three major cities, Knoxville in the East, Nashville in the Middle, and Memphis in the West. Since a great deal of the traffic through Tennessee is along Interstate 40, these three cities are the hubs for their areas. About 80 miles East of Nashville, and about 100 miles West of Knoxville is my hometown of Cookeville, TN. Being on Interstate 40 helps Cookeville to be the jumping off point for people traveling along the Interstate.
