I am tentatively saying that I’ve got back into the saddle! I wrote around 5K in the last two days on a new story.
It’s Scarlett and Joan’s story, they dated in high school in secret, but couldn’t survive in the really rural town they came from. Their relationship ended and Scarlett went away to college in the big city. Many years later, after her business failed, Scarlett finds herself on a train coming back ‘home’ to a place that feels anything but home. She is shocked to Joan waiting for her at the train station.
Joan, fresh from a failed marriage, was definitely not expecting Scarlett to step off the train. She wants the past to stay in the past where it’s safe, but Scarlett’s arrival seems to have thrown everything into an uproar. Long squashed feelings are cropping up everywhere.
Can Scarlett forgive the hurt that Joan caused her in the past, can Joan accept the way she feels about Scarlett? And can they handle being together in a small town where it seems like no one else is gay?
Stay tuned! 🙂 The story is working itself out in ways I didn’t really expect. And it keeps growing.
