the priest and the young libertarian woman
I'm in the research/first draft phase for a novel I'm currently writing. A crucial part of it is the genuine, authentic meeting between an Italian Jesuit priest and a young woman with African roots, raised and living in the city of London.
The two of them meet while she is travelling alone through Italy (she is hitch-hiking and due to extreme weather conditions he cannot do otherwise but let her into his car). Because of a cascade of events they spend the next couple of days together.
His religious orientation taken in consideration, he is an open minded guy capable of non-judgemental conversation with people of all walks of life. She's a bright and spontaneous gal and shares a loose definition of 'relationship' with her boyfriend.
The reason why I joined the forum is that I thought it a good place to base her libertarian views on love, sex, and relationship from bits and pieces of conversations I find here.
I will never use these bits and pieces themselves (and if I would want to do so, I would ask permision in advance). Also, there's the slightest possibility that amongst the female members on this forum there's someone whose personalitityresembles the character of the book, willing to communicate with me directly (through the forum), thereby giving me the opportunity of first-hand insight.
As my mother-tongue isn't English, and my topics and style of writing are considered difficult, the book will probably not get published, but issued on a print-on-demand basis, in the Dutch language only (although I'm toying with the idea of writing it simulatneously in English as wel).
So any thoughts, tips, idea's, suggestions are welcome.
Looking forward to get to know you,
