Emily’s a regular girl in her 20’s with no idea what she’s doing. She’s got a good job, but it might be pulled out from under her at any point. Her best friend Deb recently supported her through her breakup but is now keen to push her into dating.
On her first blind date she realizes, while the guy is ‘interviewing’ her, she has no idea what she wants. Afterwards Emily sets out to document what she wants in a guy, creating a list.
Emily attempts to navigate the realities of the dating world but keeps getting it hilariously wrong.
It Started With a List is a Contemporary Romantic Comedy. It was developed from eight short stories independently published from October 2016 to January 2018 about the perils of real life dating. Early drafts have been compared to Bridget Jones Diary.
