I’m not certain yet if the title fits the post or if it’s just a reflection of my feelings at the moment.
It kind of popped in there again and I wondered about it as a title for a new written work. The title has never been used before… I just searched Amazon!
I thought it might be the first novel I write that doesn’t have a happy ending because I’ve never written one like that before.
It could be about a boy and a girl who have a relationship they’ve never had before and never expected to have. It has everything in it that they had only ever dreamed about because reality had slapped them both in the face on multiple occasions in their past. Of course the biggest twist is that they don’t live together and kind of have life outside each other and maybe that’s what has kept them going and maybe not.
Eventually his outside commitments start to outgrow the relationship and there’s never any room for HER. There are never any sacrifices for HER. Came close once or twice but nothing ever grand or wonderful like cutting a trip short or stealing days away. She literally feels like she’s there for when HIS needs need to be fulfilled but outside that, well, forget it…
Then comes the last straw where promises are made and then broken… and she feels like her heart has been ripped out and tossed onto the street just in time for a bus to rumble over it leaving her wondering what to do. All the words ever exchanged, but never actions to back up those words.
Too graphic?????????????? Well, you get the idea. Of course the novel would tell the tales of their love over the course of however long I can envision them being together, high points, low points, maybe in flashbacks and then the finale. Of course the title comes from the fact they live apart, she in the heart of the city and he, obviously, outside… suburbs? Details, details.
On the flip side (and back to reality), since I have nobody else to share the news with, I have been given a shot at writing PAID blog posts, long term, and I just set aside my notes on that to write this… just putting a break in between before I sit down and start to write the actual piece and incorporate all my notes. I’ll keep you posted, as to when it goes live!
Wish me luck!
