I started two different drafts. And they were duds. I think it may be because I didnt plan the story out before. I started writing. I've always found this hard to do, because I like a little spontinaety. I've settled on the structure and chracters I want to use, but I'm afraid to start writing, because I feel like it will, once again, lead to no where. And with a setting like this, I can't let that happen. Suggestions? ANYTHING IS APPRECIATED. Here's the overview of what I'm writing about: Carol Hatley, queen of Philadelphian Society, enjoys a lavish lifestyle married to her Rich Banker husband Patrick, but when her daughter,Susan, drenches the family in a nasty scandal, they flee back to her hometown New York. On her Arrival, she encounters her old nemesis, Lady Geneva Palmer, a scheming young englishwoman, daughter of a Duke, and currently married to Carol's cousin. Vivian Hughes is a middle-aged woman stuck in an unhappy marriage with a philandering husband, and unruly children, she is also Carol's sister. Rebecca James a lady's maid in the Hughes residence is entrenched in a scandalous affair with her mistress's husband, Ted Hughes, she trys in vain to hide it, in order to keep her job. William Sutherland, American Oil King quickly becomes infatuated with his old beau Carol when she returns to town, could it be the start of a scandalous affair, or a presence to re open old wounds. Woven throughout the backsdrop of 1880s and 90s Manhattan during one of America's most prosperous periods, this story will captivate the reader, and keep them yearning for more. The italiczed names are the main characters.
