Stories of Deerfield

Family Fiction Project

As a homeschooling writing project, we decided to challenge each other to start a series of short stories about ordinary lives of ordinary people in an ordinary town. We would each take turns telling a short story, then weave the characters in and out of each other's lives. If done correctly, the result should be somewhere between "Our Town" and "Lake Wobegon". The characters, events, and places should be ordinary, realistic, and wherever possible, optimistic. Starting only with the town's name: Deerfield.
