Everywhere I go in the world I come up with ideas for stories. I have a huge backlog of ideas still to get through from Taiwan, Toronto, and Victoria, BC. But I decided to “jump the queue” with this one because the characters just NEED to be written about. This story was inspired by London.
I’m sure that right from the first page you’ll have all sorts of questions about the world this story takes place in. Why does everyone wear a hijab? Why do they all have an East London accent? If this isn’t London (it isn’t) where and when does it take place? Those questions will have to wait for if and when it gets written out in full. For now just take it as a character study. This is a short story about a girl named Maida Kilwa. Nothing more, nothing less.
