April 3 Question
Writing Love Scenes by J.Q. Rose
This question is so easy for me to answer. I need help with every chapter that involves a love scene. And I don't mean a hot scene tearing off clothes and a lot of panting and spicy narrative. No. I mean those cute little scenes when the couple just happens to touch hands or shoulders or toes. Toes? Those scenes that allow the reader to know there's electricity between the couple and the sizzle begins.
I mean how many ways can you say spark, lightning bolt, laser, whoosh, yowser without overdoing it? How do you make the feeling seem exciting and shocking without the scene reading like a second grader wrote it?

Yes, when I re-read my romantic love scenes, I always feel like a kid wrote it. Thank goodness my writers group can help me out AFTER they have finished laughing so hard they can't speak.
Do you have a problem writing romantic scenes? Please type yes in the comments below if you can relate to my plight. Thank you.
Big thank you to our captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh, and the awesome co-hosts for the April 3 posting of the IWSG--J.H. Moncrieff, Natalie Aguirre, Patsy Collins, and Chemist Ken!
