One of the key elements of creating a story is setting the scene in the readers mind. A sense of place is vital, whether it’s a room, a home, a neighborhood, community or city. Over the years I’ve received hundreds of letters from my readers who have found a sense of comfort and peace in the stories I’ve written. Because of your feedback my publisher started to use the tag line for my books that stated:
Wherever you are, Debbie Macomber takes you home.
Isn’t that what we all long for? The one place where we belong. The one place where we are most comfortable. I’d like to take the opportunity to invite you into my home. Into my life. To achieve this I’m going to start blogging, showing you pieces of the rooms in which I’m most comfortable, sharing these ideas and spaces with you in the hope that these ideas will spark your own creativity.
