I've got a story idea I'm kicking around. I'm really tired, but can't sleep.

The story is about a psycho therapist, Duncan Mac Auliffe, who takes on very dangerous patient, Alice . The setting is early eighties, Louisville, KY. Alice comes in with the presenting problem of having trouble studying. She is an anthropology student. Alice is thin, to the point of emaciation, is tall, and stooped. She has long, prematurely graying hair. She's thirty five, Alice doesn't initially tell Duncan the real reason she's there. Alice is a long time drug user, a rape victim, and has been associated with Charles Manson's "family".T

Duncan is recently finished his PHD dissertation and is new to his practice. He doesn't recognize how dangerous Alice is. He realizes Alice has long term issues. He starts to work with her using a method of bioenergetics therapy. During a routine exercise, the patient snaps and starts choking Duncan in a therapy session. Duncan realizes he is afraid of Alice's murderous rage. By now, she has disclosed that she isn't in counseling for study problems. He begins to doubt his ability to help her and refers her to another psychologist. Alice is enraged. She fixates on Duncan, and begins to stalk him. Everywhere he looks, she is there in her truck, waiting for him. She is obsessed with him. Duncan, newly married, becomes obsessed with keeping Alice's stalking out of his life.

He turns for help to his twin brother, Malcolm, a detective.



Rough outline.

I wrote a book (novella) decades ago.

It was a great plot done very badly.

I used to write a lot of poetry and some short stories. I started a novel but just tapered off with it. Nowadays I almost never write...it's very similar to how I no longer play my bass. My creativity has faded as I've gotten older.

You're never too old. Why not to pick it up again?

I'm going through a time when I cannot find enough ways to express my inner life.

Pron is only in the mind of the reader. Everyone has their level and degree for comfortable sexual experience and genra.

I would say your average grocery story danielle steel romance would be considered erotica. Give that same bored housewife something a bit more intense..say lesbian sex... would be considered porn.
