Stories About Places

Although all stories have people (or an equivalent), they are not always the focus of a story. Sometimes a story is about a place, like a city or a single house, and it shows is how people have interacted with it over the years (or generations).

Stories about places are more rare, but common enough to bring up here. It is hard to conceive a story from a perspective other than a person's or people's, but it can be done. If it doesn't come naturally to you, then try it actively; it will be a good brain-stretching exercise.  And if it does come naturally to you, then go practice it to hone and refine your skills.
