Jim writes about this song today and gives various ideas on what it might be about. An ex told me it was about a drug dealer. That makes sense. I nicknamed a character in a book “the Eskimo” because of that, and yes he was a drug dealer. I didn’t write much about the drugs themselves, since I don’t know anything and research is boring; instead I wrote about two guys having a long funny convo in the drug dealer’s house about which women they’d rather bang, such as Ginger or Mary Ann, etc. My story got way off-track because I began to enjoy writing these conversations more than the lurve scenes between the actual main characters, and I struggled with giving the protagonists enough screen time, so to speak. For some reason, this book isn’t even up for sale in my glob of books. That must be because I couldn’t decide which version to self-publish. Let’s take a vote.
1. The long one with all the off-track scenes left in that don’t even have much to do with the lurve story at all and make the book way too long for a romance novel but are funny?
2. The semi-cleaned up one that is less funny but more focused on the actual lurve story?
3. The super cleaned up version?
A. Prologue, which Elmore Leonard hates, but adds texture.
B. No prologue.
i. Attractive Nuisance (relevant legal term).
ii. Sweet Nothings (name of her lingerie store).
Thanks for your help!
P.S. Please remember that I still can’t read minds and you actually have to tell me in the comments what you want! 😀
