"F___." [A Short Story I Wrote in Downtown Denver]

In 2017, I took a trip by myself to Colorado. I stayed in a hostel in downtown where I met some fascinating people. One guy was from New Zealand, one from England, and another from New Mexico. One an adventurer, one a scientist in town for a lecture, and another in the U.S. Air Force. We all went out and got drunk and I faked a British accent.

I was only in town for 2 days and on the second day I had time to kill, so I checked out of the hostel and walked to a Starbucks. The writer of the James Bond books, Ian Fleming, once said he wrote best in places that weren’t his home. There’s a lot more to Ian’s thought there, but I only need that snippet of the story to tell you I took his advice and sat in a Starbucks and wrote.
