The story, Grind, hold a special place as it holds a special place in my heart being the first short story of the book. If you haven't had the opportunity to read it, it's about a woman who is madly in love with a married man that has been her friend for years and she works for him at his law firm. All she wants is one night with him since having him as her own isn't likely to happen. Now, many of you may be wondering what compelled this story. This is not a new topic (infidelity) and by no means do I glorify it. Yet, I know that there are women that unfortunately have gone through it or are going through it. I wanted this story to be one that is relatable in the emotions' aspect more than the situation. What do you guys think of Jacquelyn's need for 24 hours with Sedrick? Do you think Sedrick knew how she felt in all of those years of them knowing each other? And what about that ending? What is the hell is Arianna doing on that sofa?
When I first began writing, I had to ask myself, "What do you truly want to write about?" What situations feel authentic?" Writing for me comes naturally. It's something that I've done all my life. Yet, I felt relationships and romance were more of my thing. I grew up reading romance novels, but felt like there wasn't really one that represented me as a woman of color. I love excitement , cliff hangers, and the sheer excitement of erotica. So when Spilled Milk Situations came to mind, it felt right. The more I created, the more intense it became. So join me...let's talk about these stories! I want to know your thoughts, the good, the bad, and the ugly! Have a beautiful weekend readers!
