I have wanted to write a novel for at least the past five years. I have fleshed out certain parts with great clarity and avoided other parts. I have tried to decide what it is I’m trying to create.
I want to write about a relationship/marriage that is flawed with longing and infidelity. The main female character will be “flawed” with longing and unfaithfulness. The world doesn’t fall apart and the female character isn’t shamed into submission for following her longing and desires. No scarlet letter anywhere to be found. Life simply goes on. In my mind there are gritty parts that encompass erotic thoughts, some things that may be vile and disturbing to other.
It’s a work in progress and I’ve written parts in my mind over and over. Some things change and some things stay the same.
