Isn't it great when you enjoy writing a story so much that the words just fly off your fingertips? That's how it is for me right now (yay!). I have written 46,000 words in three weeks and I probably have around 10,000 to go before Eric's story is complete. I might even complete it over this weekend!
There is so much more humor in this one, because that's the kind of guy Eric is. People who see me writing and giggling crazy at the same time must think I'm mad, but I don't care, because I'm loving every minute I spend on this story and I think I'll get a little sad once I'm done. All I can say is that I have a very good feeling about this one.
I've had to do quite a bit of research, because it deals with more external matters than the other one. There's also this little fact that I don't live in America, so I had to do a whole lot of research on gay rights over there (hetero rights and gay rights are the same over here - church weddings and everything...except for blood donations, I suppose. I think they're following international regulations). May I just mention here that our Prime Minister is lesbian? That's how tolerant my people are. I'm not bragging, I just hope that the rest of the world catches up soon!
I have also had to research a lot about school systems, hospital bills, and a little bit of drug abuse. Also stylish furniture, popular music, sexy male actors, and trendy clothes and hair products (because Eric's a pretty fashionable guy). Then, of course, there were sex positions, pleasure spots, and body hair (I came across this hilarious article about a guy who decided to shave his butt for the first time. I guess I can link it since this is a +18 thread - but I must insert a warning here! It's groooss. And I mean gross, but oh-so-funny. I laughed so hard that I cried).
I don't know how many hours I've spent all in all on research, but may I just say thank goodness for the internet!
