When things are tough in our triad (which they sometimes are), it can be really hard to convince myself to sit down and work on the book. This actually blocked me completely for about six months in 2017. I didn’t want anything to do with the book at all! Things were pretty good in our relationship, but if I planned to write or do research one day, inevitably on that day two of us would be bickering; we would be stressed about the way the kids were behaving; or things in the house would just generally be off.
Of course, with a regular job, you go to work even if your family is having an “off” day. But because I’m specifically writing about triads, I felt like working on the book would just dredge up any issues we were having. The last thing I wanted to do when I stepped away from the family for some quiet time was delve into our relationship issues. Ugh.
Ever wondered what the life of a polyamorous family looks like?
My partners, Andi and Justan and I regularly talk about our relationship and our polyamorous family life on our own blogs and on social media. This website is where I talk specifically about the triad book, and my research. However, if you’d like to know more about us, please feel free to connect with us on our personal profiles!
