Hello everybody! I have not been writing for a while and pretty sure I have lost my mojo. But recently it stories and scenes just pop into my head and I want to put it into writing. The story I came up with tackles the difficulties of a person fitting in with society. You know, ye olde rich and poor. Royalty vs. commoner kind of stuff in a modern setting.  The question is, is that still an interesting catch given that society nowadays is becoming dynamic and swiftly adapting to the trends of today? Or is it too outdated?

I don't think that it is outdated at all.  My wife has connection to the local 'high society', but I'm just kind of a normal guy without special connections.  I went to a party with her recently.  And the women went off with the women, and the men went off with the men.  And the guys loved telling stories about special favors that they were getting from already being friends with, or a friend of a friend of someone with great power politically, or friends of big businessmen.  To hear them tell it, they drive 100 miles an hour everywhere, and never get a ticket because most of the state judges are friends, or friends of friends.  And sounds like a lot of business deals are kept within the circle of college fraternity brothers as often as can be.  And I heard the phrase, "It's not what you know, but who you know." come up twice during the evening.  So I would say that while things have changed from the kings and peasants model, this kind of story is still relevant today.
