Scouted out this location the same day as The Overlook and Abandoned House (see earlier posts for pictures). This cabin helped me mold the story and individual scenes during the writing process. It made it easy to visualize my characters in these places geographically, and my writing picked up in tempo because of it.
One of the things that really draws me to this cabin is that it has so many different locations within such a small area, and each spot has a totally different personality to it. Take the red walls of the bedroom and contrast it with the long steps surrounded by the crisp greenery. Or the bleakness of the dry, dead trees mixed with the blooming flowers.
As most of ACT 2 will take place in or around the cabin, it's important to have multiple areas to shoot to keep it fresh.
