Joel Chandler Harris House Joel Chandler Harris House, also known as The Wren's Nest or Snap Bean Farm, is a Queen Anne style house in Atlanta, Georgia built in 1870. It was home to Joel Chandler Harris, editor of the Atlanta Constitution and author of the Uncle Remus Tales, from 1881 until his death in 1908.[3] He is most known as author of the "Uncle Remus" tales, based upon stories he heard slaves tell during his youth.[4] The home still contains furnishings owned by Harris and utilizes the original paint colors. The house became known as Wren's Nest in 1900 after the Harris children found a wren had built a nest in the mail box; the family built a new mailbox in order to leave the nest undisturbed. The structure was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962.[1][3][5] The organization that maintains the Wren's Nest offers tours and regular storytelling.

Archetype: The Fiction Writer's Guide to Psychology The Water lily The Water Lily Inn was situated near the centre of the old city, over a thousand years old, the weathered stone exterior still bore scars from the Great War. Black scorch marks trace strange patterns on the stone from ancient wards that protects the building. New roof tiles shine brightly in the late morning sunlight as Gen approached the entrance to the Inn. Smiling to himself as the soldiers at the door straighten at his approach, too young to know who he is yet a personal friend of the Lord Marshall must be important. Quite conversation could be heard from inside the common room of the inn. The Lord Marshall reclined in a wing backed chair, chin resting on his hands, a man with grave concerns on his mind. “Gen.” With a languid wave of his hand Lord Marshall indicated to the chair opposite his. “Not as young as we use to be anymore are we Gen? They both sit in absolute silence, the servant returns with steaming mugs of coffee for each of them. “Wait, I am a bit confused. “Impossible.”

Uchronia Uchronia refers to a hypothetical or fictional time-period of our world, in contrast to altogether fictional lands or worlds. A concept similar to alternate history but different in the manner that uchronic times are not easily defined (mainly placed in some distant or unspecified point before current times), sometimes reminiscent of a constructed world. Some, however, do use uchronia to refer to an alternate history.[1] The word is a neologism from the word utopia (Greek u-topos no-place), replacing topos with chronos (time). It was coined by Charles Renouvier as the title of his 1876 novel Uchronie (L'Utopie dans l'histoire), esquisse historique apocryphe du développement de la civilisation européenne tel qu'il n'a pas été, tel qu'il aurait pu être (Uchronia (Utopia in History), an Apocryphal Sketch of the Development of European Civilization Not as It Was But as It Might Have Been[2]), reprinted 1988, ISBN 2-213-02058-2. The concept of Merry England is an example of uchronic myth.
