I think old houses inspire my writing more than anything. Who can resist an aged home that has a history? Babies were born there. Families lived their lives there. And in the old south, loved ones were laid out on their cooling boards in parlors while a mother, daughter, nephew, or friend kept a vigil during a “wake.”
I found this old home for sale in Athens, Alabama near the main part of down town. It’s for sale, and I’d love to buy it! I think the last owners must have used it as an antique store, judging by the sign on the front and the novelties left over on the front porch.
What do you think happened in this old house? Do you think there are any ghosts therein?
