Hey everyone, I was going to write a novel but I'm having trouble with an ex co-author and I won't go into many more details, but he's taking the idea without my permission so I hoped to write a novel to get it published before him. I've been told writing a short story would be best at the moment which is what I want to but I can't decide on an idea and I wanted to check with all of you to see what you thought. One idea was going to be the prologue or chapter one in the novel. The main characters, Ryan and Lile, meet at her parents annual Christmas party. She bumps into him and causes him to spill his drink, a little flirting happens and he leads her into the ballroom where the party is happening. They part and he goes to get himself a new drink, talk to some people while she goes to eat some of the food and stand like a wallflower. He asks her to dance and they do but her parents see, coming over and stopping them. An argument comes around and they reveal she's only fourteen where he's twenty one which is illegal plus Ryan is having a secret affair with her mother. He leaves and the story would end with Lile vowing that Ryan would hers one day. Any other idea would either be based on Ryan and the mother or the physical relationship between Ryan and Lile where she wants him to love her where he's just using her for physical things as she looks like a younger version of her mother. So, any ideas? Thanks for all the help!
