Independent Female Syndrome: Author’s Note

Independent Female Syndrome: Author’s Note

Independent Female Syndrome was inspired by two books. The first was about the changing role of women in the home and workplace between World War I and World War II. The second was about the rise of the suburbs and interstate highway system after World War II. Some of the anti-feminist rhetoric expressed by opponents of women in the workplace during that era bled into my fantasies (as always!) and I began scribbling out an outline.

On the EMC end of things, Vendatrix’s There Are No Bad Girls and Downing Street’s New Girl were huge influences.

I really hope you enjoyed this story. I had a great time writing it.

  • I have been impressed so far by Just Do Me. This story reminds me a lot Vendatrix’s Lovedoll universe (even down to a few details that might be little tributes), which is one of my favorites, so I am glad to see another chapter in this week’s update.
