New Novel Idea

Not sure if I am going to carry this one out, but I wanted to write the idea out while it is still in my mind. Later on I will write about my other novel ideas as well, but for now here is the newest one.

The novel will be about a small group of people who have lost someone close to them by suicide. I chose this topic because it is very close to me, because I have lost a family member and a few friends to this. The book will explore how this group of people cope and how they survive losing someone. The small group meet up at a support group type thing (yeah not the best description but I am just hashing out what is my mind right now). They talk about their anger, fear, guilt and how they wish they could go back in time to save the person they lost.

I want to write about this because it happens everyday, sadly. Maybe the book will help others who feel depressed and suicidal to see how the people around them would feel if they were to pass on before their time.

For a long time I felt guilty when my uncle took his life. That turned into rage, and anger against God. However I know now that a gunshot was the only thing that took my uncle's life. Not some destiny, or something that was meant to be. My heart still grieves to this day, even though it has been five years. It still feels like it just happened. It is still fresh in my mind. Sometimes I see my uncle in my dreams.

This will all play into my book, if I ever turn this idea into a story.

So what do you all think?
