Okay, this is a plot that I came about from fusing together three short stories, two of which I've posted already. I may actually attempt to write it almost entirely in dialogue because it would sort the story's theme, and provides an interesting perspective. The story is about a family who moves to a small town from a middle sized American city, not sure which one yet. The move turns into the biggest disaster to every strike the family, putting them into debt, causing their daughter to go from angel to drug addict in three months, and their son to engage in a sexual relationship with his 36 year old English teacher, who intiated it yes but wouldn't have had it not been for some interesting circumstances caused by the move. The family doesn't move out for a year because the parents are in denial over the failure of the trip, which the main purpose of was to distance their kids from the, "bad crowd," in the city they left. By the time they leave, their daughter has almost killed herself from a drug overdose, and their son has severely deterioted in social ability, the relationship in the long run has a destructive effect on him because he is reliant on the teacher. Okay, do you think it's plausible for parents to go into denial like this? If you are a parent, do you think you would go into denial over it? What would you do if you suddenly found out your child was having such a relationship with a teacher? For more of a writing question, is it a good idea to fuse together short stories, or does it usually end in failure? Very curious about that.
