This time, I want to tell the story of a gender swap from a woman’s perspective.
That’s the idea I came up with to get started on my newest ebook. I have written a lot of genderfluid books in the past couple years– more than 1000 pages worth, and I am always striving to find ways to challenge myself to write something different from what I’ve done before.
This time, I decided to do a first person account of a husband and wife who switch genders all told from the first person perspective of the wife as her husband gradually turns into a gorgeous little female and she turns into a tall, muscular male.
I think it will be a lot of fun as most of my books have always focused on the male experience of being swapped into a female body or gradually changed into a woman. This time, I will focus just as much on how the woman feels about her own transformation as well as the conflict she feels as the big, strong man she married blossoms breasts and becomes smaller, weaker and more vulnerable, now looking to her for protection.
Once I had the idea for the perspective, other parts just started to occur to me. I dreamed of the couple trapped on a desert island, and once that happened I knew I would have to write a classic TG story with my own twists and turns. I began to see scenes from the story, including what will likely be the opening scene. It’s all coming to me now as I work, drive, sleep, and so now the story has to be written because I know that until I do write it I won’t be able to stop thinking about it.
I haven’t seen the end yet, but I am excited and curious to see where these characters take me. I am excited for them, to see what they discover about themselves and how they deal with their changing bodies and challenging new environment. It will be fun. It always is, and the biggest challenge for me now is to just let the characters and the story take me where they want to go, to resist the urge to make it happen in a different way than what has to happen.
Here I am. At the start. Let’s see where we go!
