Sunday Scribblings #5: Why I live where I live

Write the story of why you moved to the place where you currently live.

This prompt comes via a wonderful little book called 52 Projects: Random Acts of Everyday Creativity that is very much in the spirit of our goal at Sunday Scribblings to push ourselves in new creative directions. While reading the endorsements on the first page, I saw that Keri Smith had written a blurb, and that she was excitedly beginning Project #10, so I flipped through and discovered it was this one. I've already caught glimpses in different writers' blogs about the reasons why they live where they do, and it's endlessly fascinating. You could write about why you moved to your city or country, or your particular house or apartment or neighborhood. Or feel free to take a flight of fancy, and go wherever your imagination wants to take you!
