This is a hard arc to do, there are certain beats as well as a particular direction for the night that I don’t want to feel forced but there are some leaps that “normal people” wouldn’t take. I think where I am taking things are within the characters personalities and motivations but naturally getting there is proving to be a challenge to write. Another challenge I’ve been facing is one of much past contention, Zoe’s definition of sex. I know when I first introduced the idea that Zoe doesn’t consider the things she has done with Damien to be sex and that she remained a virgin caused quite the uproar amongst my readers. I am trying to find the words to convey Zoe’s views in a way that makes sense and hopefully you can put yourself into her mindset and see her point even if you don’t agree with it.
