It’s November 1, 2012, and that means National Novel Writing Month has started. I’ve been writing a novel in November every year since 2003, but I’ve only ever “won” NaNo once. That also happened the the only year I had an outline. Imagine that.
This year I’m going for it again, and I’m writing an erotic novel in the tones of Fifty Shades of Grey. For the record, I don’t like Fifty Shades of Grey. I think Ana is a doormat and Christian is a stalker.
So that prompted me to write this one, because the premise of 50 lends itself to something more: a woman is intrigued and scared of a powerful man, and has to decide if she’s going to pursue a relationship with him. It could have been a lot more than the inner goddess and the control freak.
