As you know we just had a long three day weekend pass.
Mine was wonderful, thank you very much for asking. Hope yours was great too.
One of the things I was really looking forward to was my extra day off this weekend because I was convinced that I would have the time to explore the relationship I am having on the side.
No, I am not cheating. Not really. Or at least not in the traditional sense of the word.
I am talking about my story. And the leading character Seth. I love Seth-right down to the bone love him. He is the guy I dreamed about when I was a little girl. He is dark, with a wicked sense of humor. He has a code of honor that is so deeply ingrained from his military days. He works hard and plays harder. He is a bad boy who embodies the idea of what an alpha male is supposed to be. Get it? I. Love. This. Guy.
Okay, so whats the problem? I have tried on three different leading ladies. Not one of them fit. How do I write a leading lady who would be his match or his equal in some way that would work? My problem is simply, none of them are good enough for him. They come across as two dimensional and unlikeable.
That's right folks I am stuck.
Tell me what you do when you find yourself in this type of a situation? Because I do not want to find myself obsessing over Seth and his bad boy ways.
