No matter genre we write or read, I think we can all relate to this. How times have you read a sex scene and suddenly felt like you were either missing out or doing it wrong?
I wish I could say today’s Row80 post was all about writing sex scenes, but it’s not. I just wanted to share the picture:)
This week turned out to be really productive. The first half of the week resulted in a major plotting breakthrough with The Prophet, and I was able to dig into writing on Wednesday, as well as Friday and Saturday. I wrote about 2700 words this week, just short of my goal of 3,000. I’m feeling pretty good about them, too.
I’ve been overcoming my whole “butt in the chair” issue by telling myself I’m just going to sit down and write 250 words. By the time I get those done, the scene is usually moving, and I can keep writing.
My query letter is getting closer to being ready, and I’ve made some major decisions on who I’m going to query my completed MS to and why.
And I’m REALLY excited to announce that I will be interviewing Allison Brennan this week in a special Thriller Thursday edition! She’s one of my favorite authors, and I’m honored to be able to speak with her.
On the home front, Grace had her first performance as a Jr. Rider Girl Friday night. She hasn’t had any dance or cheerleading, and they only had one practice together. I was so nervous I had to have a drink to calm down. I just didn’t want her to go out there and freeze up and feel bad. But she did GREAT! We were so proud of her! She’s in the middle of the front row, fourth from right:
Some great blog posts for you to check out:
The always hilarious Tawna Fenske talks about peckers and spam here.
Roni Loren had the post of the week with her rant about blogging, platforms, and the pressure on writers. It’s a must read.
Jami Gold had a really informative post about what it takes to actually sell your book. Another must read.
Julie Glover posted about the frustrating and sometimes delicate matter of
discussing politics with friends and family. This one really hit home for me.
