Note: As of November 17th, this is undergoing a massive rewrite. The first chapter is a little set, and the third chapter is coming along fine, but the second chapter is having massive changes to the writing style to mirror the bad writing that I’m encountering in my research. It’ll start off as cliche, I already have the stock characters, but in time it’ll approach my voice in writing, but still with some classic things going on.
Still, I’m taking it down so that I don’t embarrass myself.
This one is becoming one of my all time favorites to write even though I have no earthly clue about how to write it at all. It’s a romance. Currently, I’m researching romance novels to write it and slowly learning the language and structure. It’s murder and fun.
This is also a solid work in progress so don’t be surprised if I change things or if comments don’t seem to make sense.
Anyways, it’s the story of Molly Parker. A recent divorcee that travels with her friend, Dom, to Nice, France. It’s a get away where she meets a dark man, Constantine, I won’t spoil the details (since there aren’t that many right now), but he brings her down into a sexual abyss as we journey through infidelity and divorce through her interactions with Dom.
It also ends with someone dying.
It’s divided up into two halves. One in a standardized romance novel language that details most of the present in the novel, the other half forms act 1 that leads up to her leaving and carries the two other main characters along in the story. Ultimately they coincide in the end (which is half written) and the romance dialog goes away.
I’m looking for some help since I’m a tad lost, the grease isn’t flowing around the mental gears. Maybe I just need to read more 50 Shades…
