a different kind of family

StaticBat83

I had an idea for a story, what are your thoughts? Years ago a woman cheated on her husband for some reason or another. Maybe because she got drunk or it was pity sex or something. She thought about not telling her husband but that would have been a bad idea because there was a good possibility she'd get pregnant and she couldn't take anything for it or didn't believe in those things, that and if she were pregnant she'd never be able to pass the baby off as her husband's because the man was a different race than they were. She did get pregnant and after the birth they decided to give the baby to the birth father. They stayed together and their relationship grew stronger. But then when the baby was young maybe five to ten years old her dad past away. Then she moved in with her birth motherthe husband of her mother and their daughter who was a couple years older. Years later when she was 18 or a little older she starts having sex with both her stepdad and half sister. One day she tells her sister that their dad got her pregnant.

A tricky story to write if everyone is over 14 years old and still living at home. A much easier story if posted to ASSTR.

Actually it could still be easy. One or both girls could be going to a college close by and decide to live at home. Or the older one lives elsewhere and the younger one is living at home while she has a job to save for school. Or both live elsewhere.

The girls could be 15-18

That'll work on SOL, but you'd have trouble publishing the stories. If you stick with what's allowed by most publishing sites, it's difficult keeping several siblings living at home realistic. Not impossible, but you end up with more unrealistic accounts explaining how they came to be in their current situation.

I don't know about that, given the state of the economy and the costs of college, it's becoming increasingly common for young adults to remain living at home well into their twenties and even into their early 30s. It's not as unrealistic as you think.

not today, especially if it's in the UK. A news report last year had the average age for adult children leaving their parental home as being in the late 20s. A large part of that is driven by problems finding housing and the cost of housing against the wages earned.

I have several projects I'm working on and may get to this one day, or maybe not. If I am able to get to this story would anyone be interested in reading the story. Or would you like to write it?
