Tuesday prompt: #9 2013

Regional stories are wrapped around the cultural, traditional, and environmental qualities of the area.  Often dialect is a feature, but not a requirement.  So work on a few paragraphs of a story that can only happen where you are.  Make it utterly dependent on the locale, can't happen anywhere else but there.

Read Faulkner's "Barn Burning" or Wolfe's "Only the Dead Know Brooklyn" for example.
