The Story Behind the Story | Through a Lens of Dark & Light

BASE IMAGE The Campfire...

This 23,000+ word novella evolved from what was planned for The Campfire, the picture (above) that was the runner up to Union Station in one of my Pick-A-Picture-Get-A-Story-Written contests. The campfire in the picture was important to the story I developed but it became increasingly more about what Robert Sterling, the protagonist, sees through an old camera his recently deceased (institutionalized) mother left him. The story takes him back to his hometown… to a place, events, and memories of someone, he’d pushed from his mind nearly 40 years ago.
