Virtual Turnpike: A Useful Tool For Writers

Maybe you have a scene in mind and you know it will take place at a little corner cafe in Florence, Italy. Or maybe in a warehouse in LA, or a a winding road in North Carolina, or a street in NYC. Details of the area will add character and depth to your scene but unless you live in the area you can’t just pack up and go there. I use Google Earth to explore neighborhoods and highways and everything else when doing story research. Now there’s a new kid on the block. Similar to Google Earth but in some ways better. Check out Virtual Turnpike. Pretty cool and it might help you craft that scene.
