A new story written (mainly) by the administrator's daugther
In May 2022, the daughter of the administrator of the site decided to write her own naturist serial, she entitled "My life so far". It's not autobiographical but it's inspired from her own struggles with naturism, just, differently.
Some of the story beats were inspired by her father, to form a more coherent story.
My life so far
Please excuse the month-long post, but my daughter wanted to revise this one and college got in the way. Not that it's over, but she was taking a pause from studying to revise this one with me. She did make a few changes, so it's...
Edith and Mindy drops by Julie's and Edith sees a naturist for the first time, while the three girls play on the Wii.
This is a nice episode between the three girls. Edit will take a back seat for some of the story soon, but...
This is a rather boring episode which feels like a filler, but it provides some information about Julie's parent's company, and it's important for yet unwritten chapters.
Julie eats lunch with Edith and Mindy, and make plans for Mindy's birthday
Introducing Edith, who will become an important character over time. Edit was actually one of the first character defined by my daughter, before she decided to tackle this project. I also personally added a little element which...
So, this episode is late. I was under strict orders not to publish it until my daughter, who wrote most of it, had the chance to review it, and college is more intense than planned. But here it is, finally.
This episode was delayed because neither of us ended up liking the way it turned out. Still, we couldn't really fix it. Next chapter will be the medical visit, so at least, it doesn't overstay it's welcome.
The trailer will make...
The weekend at the naturist resort is over, and the family returns home, making plans for next year's visits to the naturist resort.
In this episode, Julie plays portal for the first time. In the real life, I ended up showing my daughter how to play, but she didn't do as well as Julie did.
One of the longest episodes, but it's also a lot of description of a...
The morning after the medical talk, it's raining and Julie and her mother get breakfast. A bonding mother-daughter moment.
In this chapter, Julie discovers that she might have a medical problem, which well, the co-author of this book suffered from. This is in part why my daughter retreated from naturism as a teenager.
Her goal, when initially...
And finally, the first plot point of the novel! If you think that Naturism was the main story, you were wrong. It's the settings. This episode introduces the main plot point. The character arc for our main character. This was...
Finally, the volleyball match. Not much to say, but it introduces something my daughter wanted to put in the story: the rules of cool. We get to see Julie trying to figure out what it means to be cool. Some foreshadowing for...
Sorry for the little pause in publishing. This is a pivotal moment for the relationship between Julie and her mother. It's also an important growing up moment for her.
Finally, Lucy and Clark are introduced! These are 2 non-resident teenage naturists who help Julie form a template as to what being a teenager and being in a relationship is like.
They do not live at the resort, and initially,...
Finally the bike ride and the creek! This was one of the first ideas my daughter had, and before you ask, no, it's not auto-biographical. Well, some of the details of the bike ride are inspired by real life events (in a non...
One of the first fully collaborative episodes. Julie wakes up and goes on her day. A nice episode where not much occurs in term of action but a lot for Julie. She also admits not being that reliable. I wonder if this will come in...
Finally, the sleepover. The scary story part is 100% from my daughter, by the petanque part is mine. We designed the resort together and both wrote parts.
It's finally Friday! Julie does to Mindy's naturist resort with her parents, until at least Episode 16!
The first version of this episode was corrupted and half of the content was missing. Sorry for that.
