James River City project

I want to write a story about Richmond. This city that I’ve come to love and live in, it’s a visceral city. It’s a city that knows it’s own and knows what it has owned. There’s a story about it that’s itching to bleed from my fingers.

So, I went through my writings tag on here and pulled from things I’ve written about it, or that make me think of it. I want to somehow craft a short story (or series?) using them as inspiration or as part of it.

But I want to know what other people think of when they think of—or visit—Richmond. Answer this, send me a message—I very well might use your input, or at least use it to lead me in similar directions.

What do you think of when someone mentions Richmond?
