Bars Have a Lot of Possibilities… / Question

There is this moment for writers, this moment where they come up with a story idea and suddenly their entire mind gets covered in how the story will be, what the story is about, what will happen, their names, their stories, relationships.

This is that moment that I am convinced is the only reason why writers chose to be writers, besides our incapability of walking away from something so amazing and creative. Despite how long you’ve been in a rut when it comes to writing, these moments still continue to happen and sometimes at the weirdest times.

Lately, I have been going to this Billiards Hall, which allows people under the age of 21 to come in and the place is absolutely amazing and as I was holding the pool cue under my chin, staring at this dart board from across the room, I realized something absolutely amazing.

Bars have so many possibilities, they have the weirdos that don’t leave you alone and the people who you are relatively convinced might murder you if you go anywhere alone with them, you have the long-time couples and the new relationships and even the single people who want to meet each other.

Which is how I came up with a new story idea which will cause a lot of background writing and planning, something I don’t do very often with stories but I think this time it will be worth it and I think it will be so fun to write.

I am still working on ‘The Girl in the Cage’ but I know that I won’t be able to publish it in a couple of years due to some stuff going on at school right now though the story is ultimately finished besides revisions so in the meantime, I want to work on this story.

The thing with this story is that I don’t see how it can be a novel, I was thinking it might be best for a series of short stories to publish as one story and maybe I could post them on here as I finish them?

Tell me what you guys think and don’t forget to suggest a book from my book catalog if you want to hear a book review!
