Been in a tailspin the past few weeks but think I’ve managed to right the ship. Looking forward to getting back to the business of writing. I’ve actually missed my characters and somehow hope they’ve miraculously gotten themselves out of the web they’ve spun, but somehow I doubt it. They are going to need my help and I’m up for the challenge.
This roller coaster continues and I’m glad to be back on the ride!!!!
I have spent the past couple of days reading many blogs and articles about the actual art of writing a sex scene. Placing yourself in the bodies of your characters, you need emotion and all your senses to fuel the scene. Although the scene is meant to be hot and fast, it takes forever to explain how a simple touch can ignite a physical reaction.
I’ve spent the morning with my characters whom up until this morning had not engaged in their first sexual encounter. The deed is done.
What is it about romance novels that demand the main character be a bazillionaire? Mind blowing sex and deep meaningful relationships don’t need expensive hotel rooms, penthouse apartments or even private islands to make them great. Great sex is just as great in the backseat of a car and a beautiful sunset can be enjoyed together while stuck in commuter traffic.
Why do we fantasize about taking ourselves away from our reality? Can’t we make our reality a fantasy?
So next time you’re stuck in a situation with only your own thoughts, think about how your fantasy man or woman would change your reality if he/she showed up at that exact moment. I bet he /she would rock your commute!!!!
