This thread is for the purpose of Porcupine's SI book idea.

Thanks

DS

That is a highly aggressive schedule you have put together there Porcupine!

Great idea! I would certainly be interested in helping out!

Wow!

I think we need stories from people with different types of affairs.

1. The 100% remorseful WS with a successful reconciliation.

2. Infidelity with a serial cheater.

3. Infidelity where a OC is involved.

4. Infidelity as an exit affair.

5. Infidelity with a fence sitter who refuses to make a choice.

6. Infidelity through the eyes of children.

7. Infidelity with sex addicts.

8. Infidelity before marriage, e.g., a fiancee.

9. Infidelity with no children involved.

10. Infidelity during pregnancy.

11. Infidelity during an illness.

12. Infidelity between gay couples.

13. Infidelity where the WS is gay and the BS is straight.

This is just a list I'm making off the top of my head.

Georgie

Georgie,

I will tackle number 11 on your list. It may take me a while however but I will start.

How many words should each of our stories be?

This is a great idea!

I think that a chapter should be for those who choose not R or have no choice as well (in terms of healing and recovery). I love curiousgeorge's ideas, just wanted to add another for consideration.

Let me know if I can help.

Here's another one:

Infidelity in the military.

I know there are several of us who are either in the military or with someone who is.

We can work further on this chapter structure. What I would like is for each person who "takes on" a chapter to compile stories of other members and blend them into a coherent collection within their chapter.

An idea could be (brainstorming here): pick a chapter, start by sketching out your own story and imbricate quotes from other members into your story to enrich it, create a new dimension...

First step: agree on a structure (titles, content) and on a tone-of-voice and chapter mechanism
Second: find volunteers for each chapter
Third: volunteers compile testimonies of other members and write their chapter
Fourth: a "chief editor" and myself stand by the whole process to ensure coherence...

So please continue to PM or post your ideas of ways to structure the book and volunteer if you feel up to a coordinating role!

I would like to see a chapter on Internet Infidelity - Including EA's and EA's leading to PA's that start innocently and on deliberate trawling for PA/Casual/Cyber Sex on Dating Sites. It is SUCH a growing problem nowadays and one which isn't covered much in existing books on the subject.

A LOT of you have voluntered as editor for different chapters.
Still no sign of a chief editor though, but I think we can still move forward and start putting ideas together. Let's see how far we get...

A few of you had the same idea of structuring the book in the same way SI is structured. The forums could serve as the main sections in the book, and within each section we could define different chapters.

For example:

**************************************
Section One- Introduction

Section Two-Just Found Out
Chapter 1: Types of A's
- PA
- EA
- ONS
- LTA
- sex addicts
- online affairs

Chapter 2: Finding out- Confession , Suspicion/confrontation, Being blindsided.

Chapter 3: Initial Reactions- BS/WS Physical reactions
BS/WS Emotional reactions

Chapter 4: Decisions!- Recon?, Divorce?,Separation?Fence sitting, Limbo.

Chapter 5: frequently asked questions-
#1 question - WHY?!
Should I contact OP?
Should I tell OP spouse?
Who should I tell?
ect....

Chapter 6: Coping skills- Taking care of you.

Section Three- General
Chapters:
- Dealing with a fence sitting WS
- OC
- A during pregnancy
- A during illness
- A in specific careers: military, police...
- gay couples
- BS is straight, WS has an A with same-sex OP
...

Section Four- Recon
Chapters:
- recon techniques
- IC/MC/Retrouvaille
- timeline
- false reconciliations

Section Five - Wayward
- NC
- Feelings for OP
- the fog
- understanding why
- how to help your BS
- ...

Section Six - Investigation

Section Seven- Inspirations

Section Eight- Divorce

Section Nine - Books that help

Section Ten- Humor in healing

***********************************
Thanks to all of you who sent in ideas, I tried to compile them here so we can start to move on...

Let me know what you think!

I think we should also include a section under Wayward: Who is the OP?

We have several OP who post in Wayward that could help to define who that person is in the affair.
