As a few of you know, the other night I overcame a huge hurdle in writing Dangerous Dalliances… the dreaded sex scene…
Now, if you’ve read Precarious Possessions and saw the little sneak peek at the end, you see that this whole novel starts with a one night stand gone wrong… but I didn’t write it out.
There, I’ve said it. I can’t sit back and just knock out a sex scene at the drop of a hat. I’m a girl, I need music and mood… at the risk of sounding completely crass, I can’t just rub one out and know that it’s gold. So a few nights ago, I was awake until 3:30am trying to get this scene just right.
Now that it’s over, another problem is starting to show its ugly head. The next love scene is going to have to have just as much emotion. Things will change. I can’t have cookie cutter sex scenes… you know… everything is the same, only the names are different. Stereotypical flames licking, Earth moving, oh, there’s a pool/lake/grotto here, let’s shag…. I’ve read it, and laughed. I couldn’t expect any less from my readers.
So I’m here just dropping a line to let you know what I’m up to. Barry and Lily have done the deed and now we have to see what Fate has in store for them. 🙂
