First of all, I must admit that as I write the story, characters objectives are not identifying with the idea I had in mind.  It seems their objectives are bringing the story into a different direction with the same plot.   

The problem I think is, I thought I knew early before creating the story who the protagonist and antagonist were, but it seems like the antagonist actually may be Tya's husband, Miller.  Why? Because Miller's gambling habits are conflicting with Tya's desire to have a happy, loving and supportive marriage with him; however, she seeks get what she needs from Sayon; therefore, she commits adultery.

I have began writing Act I, Scene 3, and I want this scene to be the first sexual encounter of  Tya and Sayon, but I can't figure out the point of his visit.

Monday, February 27, 2012

Suddenly, I have decided to change character names for a few characters: La-Ron to Sayon and Kevin to Miller. Why the change? As I recited the old character names; the names didn't appear memorable.

What are Tya's 3 obstacles to being faithful to her husband? 1. Loneliness 2. Suspicion 3. Lack of faith in God.

A woman should know her husband just as a husband should know his wife.  How did Tya's husband, Kevin, not know she was cheating on him?

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

An event of the story: Tya walks on her way home from a store,  she runs into La-Ron.  He offers to carry her bags. He asks does she have time to hang out.  She says, yes.  At the house, he walks inside behind her, he uses his foot to close the door. The door slams.  Tya stops and drops her bags on the ground, she turns to him, she walks to him.  He holds two bags.  Tya pulls his pants close to her, unbuckles his belt, unzip his pants, gets on her knees,  pulls his penis out, puts it in her mouth and begins to suck, it.  La-Ron, drops the bags, and leans up against the door. La-Ron aroused, tells her to get up and bends her over on the couch, from behind he penetrates his penis inside her.
How does a love affair begin? Physical attraction.

What action happens first?

Scene 1
Its Sunday, early morning.  La-Ron's outside his doing push-ups and Tya, his neighbor is pulling a piece of furniture out the house to put at the curb.  La-Ron see's her struggling.  He finishes his last push-up, walks over to her, and asks does she need help.  Tya declines and continues to push and pull the piece of furniture.  La-Ron walks over to the furniture to help.  Tya stops.
No, thanks.  I told you, I can manage.
La-Ron ignores her.
Why do women always have to do things by themselves?
No. Why should we have to wait for a men to get things done?
La-Ron laughs.
Ha, ha.  Your right.  But, I am standing right here, right now.  Wow! You should accept my offer and let me help.
Okay.  Take the other side.
La-Ron grabs the edge of the piece of furniture.
Ready? Pull!
Together they move the piece of furniture to the curb.

Research: Subject: The mentor. Who will be La-Ron's mentor?

May be this online article will help determine who this person should be: The Hero's Journey - Meeting with the MentorFrom Christopher Vogler's "The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure":

Who is the mentor in a story? The mentor prepares the hero for his journey and to accept the adventure; it can be man, woman, or God.


Peterson, D. (2012). The Hero's Journey - Meeting with the Mentor From Christopher Vogler's "The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure." Available from Guide. 

La-Ron: What about him is interesting? Why is he so unique? Does he have charm? Is he intelligent? What makes women fantasize and desire to be with him? La-Ron Malone is a nice guy, he is the good guy.  He is the guy most women want to take home to meet their mother; he is the conventional lover all women dream of.
Who is Tya? Tya the ANTAGONIST is patient, confident, determined, selfish, distant, aloof, and mysterious.
What is the conflict of the story? Tya commits adultery, and has not told La-Ron, the other guy, she is married.  Things between Tya and La-Ron become a conflict when he wants to spend more time with her, and she can't.  However, instead of telling him the truth, she distance herself and pulls away from La-Ron hoping he catches a hint, which he does.
"All character personalities and scenes should consistently be focused on the plot or main point of the story." (Nosy Rosie)

La-Ron Malone's wife died of breast cancer, its been years since he enjoyed the company of a woman in his home or even felt the closeness of a woman's body.  A typical day for him is work and then, to the gym.  After watching his wife die in his arms, he never looked at another woman the same way he felt for her.  Instead, of entertaining romance, in his spare time on a day off, he travels or volunteers with the Feed the Children of the World.  Giving back to the community makes La-Ron feel good, though, he never considers love.  Until he meets Tya Barrett.  Tya's independence and strong will reminds him of his wife.  He never considered replacement of his wife but his thoughts keep recalling Tya.
Technique / Style: I will use mathematical term; symmetry to help unfold the story Love Affair through characters and scenic design.

Why do people divorce? There were many reasons I discovered. Here's a few solutions: talk, listen, compromise, and stop arguing over petty stuff! Lol.
At the moment, I am online reading Divorce stories in search for one answer: Why do happy married couples break up? Lol.
I need at least one more important character as a mentor. I'm thinking the role for the character; a neighbor, a parent, a friend, a friend of a friend, etc...
And, the Antagonist character's name will either be:

  • Zola Barrett   La-Ron Malone
  •  Tya Barrett   La-Ron Malone
  • Viera Barrett  La-Ron Malone
But, when I look at each name as a pair with La-Ron Malone, Tya's name stands out better as an opposite opponent of La-Ron's.  Therefore, the Antagonist's name is Tya Barrett.

Okay! So, I want to begin discussing the background of the Protagonist character, but I need a name for him.  I googled: What is the sexiest letter of the alphabet? I found S or L are my two choices. Therefore, I choose the main character's name to be: La-Ron Malone.

Research: Online Media: So...I read this New York Times article on kissing: Critic’s Notebook: TV Kisses Lose Impact They Had in Sammy Davis Jr.’s Day: and the critic had me thinking about the kissing action between the characters in my work in progress stage play Love Affair, so to be sure the kissing intensity will be strong, I googled: kissing images, then, observed and descriptively wrote down what I saw.  The objective is to intensify the kissing scenes or moments in my story.


Genzlinger, N. (2012, Feb. 10). TV Kisses Lose Impact They Had in Sammy Davis Jr.’s Day. The New York Times (Accessed article online). 

Protagonist character description: African-American, male, brown-skinned, 6 ft, muscular body build, low tapped hair cut with waves, gold t facial hair, and wears a cross pendant on his necklace, no piercings or tattoos.  After researching baby boys names, I considered: Christopher, Sayon, or La-Ron. I may go with Sayon.
Antagonist character description: African-American, Female, age between 25 to 30 years, brown-skinned, slender, long straight black hair.  After doing research for African- American baby girls names, I have considered names: Zola, Viera, or Tya. I am not sure which name is best....
The setting of Love Affair: Present day: Sunday: early morning: warm weather: in a neighborhood of row houses and single family homes on the street, a multicultural community in the urban city of Queens, NY.
