Whoops! The move has completely wrecked my ability to follow a schedule…well, at least as far as the blog chain is concerned.
I’d like to extend my deepest apologies to my chain mates. Hopefully posting a day later than planned won’t be too much of a disservice to this wonderful group of writers and bloggers! 😉
This round of the blog chain was started by Kat , who asked the question:
How do you feel about love scenes? As a reader, are you put off by the gratuitous? As a writer, do you shy away from spelling out the down-and-dirty? Or do you write until your computer lights a cigarette?
Hey, I think anybody can get giddy reading a steamy scene, right? On the other hand, I’m apt to skip an over the top explicit romp in the sack if I think it’s gratuitous or not really pertinent to the plot at hand.
As for my own writing, I don’t tend to get into the romance too deeply. Sure, the MC will have a crush and I enjoy writing the fun/flirty scene, but I don’t need to get into the kama sutra of what my characters are doing.
What about you? How far do you take your love scenes?
