I love a lot of songs from before my time (up to the 80s) and one of my favourite singers is Janis Ian, who wrote the song Miracle Row
, which starts:
Marie lives on Miracle Row,
She tells fortunes, you know,
At a dollar a throw,
Every pimp and every gigolo,
Has made love in the afternoon
To the lady by the windowsill.
While I was listening to it I got an idea to write a story inspired by it, and while I've written a piece inspired by a song before (see The Dutch Harbor Alexa thread)
I want to go deeper with this one, which seems to be an observational piece about a neighbourhood that everyone's desperate to get out of ("Yes, they're gonna get out of here soon".) Anyone have tips?
