This particular novella started as an adaptation of a screenplay I wrote 15+ years ago. It required some updating, since at the time of the original writing, things were different. Like: cell phones. OMG. Anyway!
GETTING OFF is a F/F love story, which kind of took me by surprise in the writing, since I have only ever lived F/M love stories myself. But it was pretty easy to figure out what each of the heroines would love about the other. And frankly, I really love both these women. They crack me up every time I read this thing.
Vicky and Sharon are co-workers and best friends. When Vicky finally shows her freeloading boyfriend the door, she and Sharon start spending even more time together. Sharon tags along when Vicky starts hanging out with Vince, because he’s entertaining and she likes to watch them dance. They both date other people, with varying degrees of non-success. But they keep coming back to “it’s more fun to be with you.”
And at a certain point, there’s really no reason to be with anyone else.
