My story is ever so slowly getting there. I was stupid and started writing the novel I didn't have outlined last night. However, today I went ahead and wrote up an outline (another +2000 words), so I'm pretty much good to go for the rest of this novel. I intend to write +5000 words every day this month, so hopefully I'll have something to show for it.
Ever since Peter came out to his family and his brother outed him at school, life has been a living hell. He's physically and verbally abused by his peers - the varsity football team being the main culprits - and ignored by his family. One day Peter realizes that he's had enough; he's sick and tired of being harassed. He wants revenge. Peter's going to win this round of Smear the Queer, one football player at a time. And winning never felt so good.
