My sister and I were having a conversation about books we liked, specifically in the M/M genre. Our tastes vary widely. She doesn’t like a lot of angst, anything that’s too over the top drama, nothing BDSM–in fact, she likes the straight forward, happy, fluffy, two boys meet, have a few getting together issues, fall in love and live happily ever after.
On a whim, I said, “Play a game with me. Tell me the premise of what you want to read.”
She did. She told me a bit about the two boys, a bit about their personalities, an overview of the sort of conflict she wants to see, and came up with a cute twist. Then she waggled her eyebrows and gave me a little “cat-head nuzzling” and batted her eyelashes and asked me to write it,
So, now that’s in my queue too. And that one will be especially fun. Because it’s for my sister.
