I was inspired to write Husband Auditions (click here for excerpt) by a 1950’s list of ways to get a husband as printed in McCall Magazine. I had so much fun with it (click here for fun facts), the book is done, and I already made it through my first round of edits.
We found out that I’m not going to be able to use the actual list in my novel.
I have to make up a new list!!!
I need your help.
Here’s a sample from the original list:
I asked my Facebook reading group for suggestions, and here are some they came up with:
These are so fun, and I need lots more ideas. I’ll take everything from silly to sensible. It just needs to have a 1950’s flair. That means no texting or online dating suggestions.
I also want to divide the ideas into sections: Meeting Him, Attracting Him, and Getting Him to Commit
