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?

I'm honestly not sure I understand the question, or that it's specific enough I could offer useful commentary.

Well, start with the characters, who are they?

That's an incredibly broad topic.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
