THOUSAND WORD THURSDAY
One of the things I love about living in Alabama is you can find red dirt roads just like this one within just a few miles of any metropolitan area. This particular dirt road can be found in Gee's Bend.
Gee's Bend is a little pocket of land surrounded by the Alabama River on three sides. As soon as the contract for The Witches of Gee's Bend was official, I climbed in my van, drove 120 miles, and took this picture (among others). Somehow I don't think it's changed all that much from 1932, which is when my story takes place.
