It’s Bisexual Awareness week. Yes, we do exist. We sometimes have husbands, sometimes wives, and, sometimes, we’re polyamorous. Regardless, we’re who we are, but many people try to negate our existence. We’re not a phase or a period of transition. To say our existence serves that purpose is to negate us. My response to that idea is HERE. (“A Pansexual’s Response to Negation”)
Yes, I said we. I’m a pansexual (meaning here) woman married to a woman, and I write Science Fiction. My current series is Bi Sci-Fi, and my current protagonist, Etain Ixtii, is both bisexual and polyamorous. It’s who she is, and she doesn’t tolerate anyone else trying to define her based on their ideology. She’s also a mother… yes, bisexuality, polyamory, and motherhood can and do go hand-in-hand. I met several such women at the local pride fest last weekend. It was a wonderful, confirming event, and I was proud to be a part of it.
That said, let’s get to today’s topic… it’s WIPpet Wednesday, a chance for authors to share their current WIPs.
This week’s WIPpet Wednesday* comes again from Surrogate: Traditions, the third novel in the Surrogate Series.
Here’s my WIPpet math: 9/20/2017 – I am running with nine. Nine for September. This selection comes from Chapter Nine of Surrogate: Traditions.
The Setup: Tempers are again flaring inside the apartment, and Etain and Leigheas have all but hit the point of what I’ve heard called hallway sex. You know about hallway sex, don’t you? That’s when two angry people stand at opposite ends of a hall and yell “F*** you!” at each other. I’ve seen more than one relationship end in this manner… including one of my own.
“But you’re my wife.” Leigheas held out his hands. “Please. We can sit in the dining room. I just want to talk to you.”
