Last Monday (January 31) I finished part five of “Julianna and the Realtor”, and I think I finally figured out where the story is going. I don’t know how many more parts of the story it’ll take to get there, but I’m thinking at least five more. Part six is going to be more straight-up sexytimes, part seven will advance the plot a little, part eight a little more, part nine will have some conflict, and part ten will be the conclusion. At least, that’s the plan.
When I first started writing this series, I really just wanted to live out a fantasy in my mind. Honestly, that’s how a lot of my writing starts out. But the characters were interesting enough that I wanted to learn more about them, and the built-in conflict of Julianna’s need for privacy due to her job (as a somewhat-famous actor) was enough to keep the stories interesting (I hope).
At the end of part five I also introduced a new conflict, which grew out of discussions I’ve had with my partners. Basically it’s the point that polyamory works because one person shouldn’t have to be another person’s everything all the time. If that’s what you both want, then sure, go for it, but it’s a lot of work, and it’s nice to have help.
Plus, with multiple partners, metamours can work together to do awesome things for their partners — birthday parties, fun events, and yes, even sexual or kinky things (if everyone is comfortable together). I don’t know if any of that stuff is going to happen in “Julianna and the Realtor”, but it might. Hell, I might end the series with a threesome, if the mood strikes me.
I don’t always know where I’m going until I get there, but the journey is always a fun one.
