I started writing a story today about a tenth grader in a strange town called Nightwatch. Now this strange town isn't going to end up being a murder or horror town, it is just strange when compared to what we consider normal. In this story I want to make it essentially a bunch of short stories that never break in between. It is basically a a large short story collection with the the characters and the settings (and maybe past events if they are relevant) carrying over. Would this work? Would it be better if I figured out a way to make it more traditional and have one large story arch throughout the entire thing?
