This is just an idea I had for a story that I don't yet have the skills to write -- It pains me greatly to say this and the pain is mitigated by the pain of the thought of giving this idea away or attempting to sour too high and fail to do the subject proper justice.
It's about a 39 year-old disillusioned house-husband named Zelmir Tyler whom has an affair with an 18 year-old boy, Lothario Winters -- whom happens to be a close friend of his twins, Emmiline and Fabian -- after he learns that his husband of 19 years, Blaze Westborne, has been cheating on him with the mother of their children, Avalaide Kinny, from Avalaide's recently-kicked-to-the-curb ex-girlfriend, Grace Morgan.
I wanted it to be written a voice similar to Sandy Pressman in Judy Bloom's Wifey, but I fear that the cerebral tone of my writing and my propensity for Southern Gothic elements will hinder the work.
At a loss as to what to do.
Dear WEbook writers and readers,
After five wonderful years of running WEbook.com, it is with great sadness that we have decided to close the site. We are one of the last to take this step but despite spending a huge amount of our own money, at some point the money runs out and we, like Book Country, Authonomy, Figment and many others, have been forced to make this painful decision.
The lights will be turned off for a final time on March 31st 2018, after which WEbook.com will cease to exist. Any work that you would like to retain must be downloaded from your account by midnight GMT on March 31st, 2018. Anything that is left on the site after this will be unrecoverable in accordance with the Data Protection Act, 1998.
Although our time with WEbook has come to an end, if you would like to make us a serious offer, now is your opportunity. Drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
WEbook has taken us on a wonderful journey, with a group of really talented writers. Thank you to everyone for putting so much effort into the site, and of course into each other's writing.
Just don’t stop writing because of us!
The WEbook Team
