Some of the most popular stories, it seems, are those where one connects with the mind, and perhaps soul, of the narrator. While I mostly write about things with one or many of truth, I haven't previously done so at length, and in the first person.
In my present work in progress, I am trying to break through those barriers. Every character is real and starts out with real interactions, but does get into do-over, moving toward a polyamory that I've thought about. I use my real first name, Howard, not a pen name, although I haven't decided if that will continue on posting -- all other names are of real people.
What I want for initial review is someone that isn't there for copy edit -- I think I'm pretty good there. What I want is someone that can say that an interaction is or is not plausible, that they can or cannot connect with a character.
There's MF and lots of FF (some real friends exploring what they wanted). Friendly watersports and perhaps erotic pain but absolutely no humiliation. Haven't yet decided to include any MM or trans. I like to write fairly extensive visual descriptions of people and outfits.
I suspect I'll close this at around six substantial chapters, but with a definite followon possibility. If and when I post, it will be complete. Right now, I'd call it about two-thirds done, but interim reviews would tell me if I'm on the right track.
