What’s your goal in this story? Will I ever love a man enough to want to be with him for twenty-four hours? After that day is over, will it follow with a longing to be together or will I go back to my loneliness.
What conflicts are you facing? I meet my competitor for the grant, Dr. Carlos Montoya. He’s smart, funny, and as ironic as it is, our research intersects. After a couple of hours of talking and loving, I’ve met my soulmate. He’s a communist. I love my country.
Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you? In spite of the fact that Carlos is prideful and somewhat confrontational, I bring out the best in him. He needs a pushy New Yorker like me. She listens to his ranting until the bottom falls out. Trepidation builds inside me, and I don’t know what to expect at the final rewards ceremony.
