A Bit About "Flappers & Gangsters"

F&G was a strange story to write. It was actually a request from a friend. I asked for a writing excercise and she gave me the restrictions that I needed to write about "flappers, gangsters, and prohibition". The first attempt at this was a lengthy exposition of bootleggin in Wisconsin that went on for a few pages before I ever introduced a possible "love interest." This just didn't work. So, I went the other way and started it off lascivious and kept at it. I hope it works for you.
