Story Summary: Lacy is a waitress in an Irish pub and she has long harbored fantasies about having a torrid affair with regular customer Jake. The only problem is, she's married and he isn't quite the bad boy she wants him to be. . .
What I Like About This Story: This story turned out nothing like I first envisioned. I wanted Lacy to be sympathetic, trapped in a terrible marriage and looking for a way out. But as I was writing, I realized, Lacy's life really isn't so bad, and she is simply looking for trouble because she is bored with the choices she's made in life. I don't usually write characters who are purposely and knowingly trying to mess things up for themselves without good reason, so this story widened my comfort zone a little more. This has been a great, unexpected benefit to this project so far.
Now, can I get two more written today and officially catch up?
