*deep breath* Okay. I am nervous about talking about this because I do not know what people will think but I am almost done with the first chapter and I wanted to tell everyone about this newest story I am working on. It is called The Beauty and the Tragedy and I have decided to add another installment to the popular "Wonderwall" series that I have created. This particular story will follow Danny Aldridge and River Conway, Abe and Cecilia's daughter.
The Beauty and the Tragedy by Kate
River Conway is seventeen years old and has never had a boyfriend. Staying the summer at his house, she asks Danny Aldridge to teach her about relationships and sex. The arrangement starts simple enough until love enters the picture.
I want to write this story because I wanted a story that is about first love - the innocence and the excitement about it all. A Slow Burn is dark, The Nicest Thing and Between the Lines is angst-filled, and The Flower Girl is mysterious and supernatural. I wanted to work on a story for a while that is about those first-time moments in our lives that wind up changing us. There will be drama in this story but it will also be terribly sweet and romantic.
Some tidbits going into it - Many things have changed in the Wonderwall world:
- Abe and Cecilia have moved to Providence to raise their two children, River and Grant. He no longer speaks to Chase and he has rare contact with his other friends back in Boston.
- Nikki is married to Chase. Her relationship with both Chase and Lawson will be explained.
- This story is going to cover several years - something I have never done before but something I am excited to try.
- Though this story is about teenagers (though we will eventually see them in their twenties), Danny and River act maturely. I promise.
Please let me know what you think. If no one is really interested in this, I will just put it on the backburner for a while. Writing this does not mean that I am putting a hold on any of my other stories. I just need to take a break from them and write something that makes me smile and makes my characters smile too.
