Why do I hate writing sex scenes so much? I write romance for crying out loud!

Each one needs to be different. Each one needs to be fresh. Thing is, sex has certain descriptions that must sound similar.

I think it's that I get self-conscious. For the most part, I enjoy the emotional ride (heh, see what I did there?) But then I get to thinking that maybe the readers don't like it so explicit or poetic or shallow or whatever the scene turns into for that couple at that time. This one was rather...deep. LOL I gotta go...

3087.. I want 5 so I am working on it but my mind is oddly wiped...


2:37 am - 4282 - working for 5k (or 30k whichever comes first lol)


3:03 am - 4937+ editing, which puts me at 30k and a new chapter, now I am going to pass out!

Good luck to those of you who are still writing and wow! to the 5k word count, Pandorra! :o

3003 for this morning. Now I can focus on my other project this afternoon without guilt. Two more days and I should be done with this WIP. I may just get 3 more books published this year!

1700-ish words, one chapter.  Had to run errands all day.

Tomorrow I'm determined to get in at least two chapters.

A bit over 3k today, and this story still has a couple hundred words to go, so I'll try to get them done before I go to bed (I have the day off tomorrow, so at least I can sleep in until 7am :) )


Ging, great Job, I know it sounds like just words but I get how fricking hard that can be when the rest of the world is trying to step on your toes.. but you always manage to do it anyways!

 :D Thanks! Yeah, sometimes it's like trying to push molasses up a hill... ???

Gratz Jays!

Thanks, Pandorra!


Holy cow. Nice work!  8)

You, too! Everyone's killing it on this board. Unfortunately, my AC went out (live in Florida) so I'm hoofing it over to Starbucks. I never write as much there  :( so I have no clue what today will look like.
