my home town...DeKalb, Illinois

I've lived in DeKalb since I was a wee three year old. My dad teaches at Northern Illinois University there, and I love exploiting my town for the settings of stories. I pretended to hate it half the time I was growing up there, but I really apprecciate it now that I'm gone.
wanna read a piece I wrote about DeKalb for the fiction workshop last year?
