I’ve been dealing with jaw pain for three weeks now. Don’t ask…it’s boring. Eventually we’ll get it resolved.
But do you think I’ve lost any weight? BWHAHAHAHA!!! Want to guess what I can eat? ICE CREAM. Even though I’ve only eaten, in three weeks, maybe four servings of ice cream, it’s STUCK to me like fangirls on JR Ward.
How is that fair?
I’m starting to blame my new book for the jaw pain. I’m pretty sure the book hates me. My hero is so hard to crack. He doesn’t share his thoughts or feelings so how am I supposed to tell his story? I have two semi-solid chapters and about a 100 pages of crap in my cut file. Those 100 pages are dead to me. I only keep them in my cut file because if I delete them then I will need them.
Is it any wonder my jaw hurts? Wouldn’t that make you grind your teeth?
I will win though. I may break my jaw in the process, but I will get this book written and in on time. I Will Win! I will not let a hero that I created beat me.
Clearly I’m a little tense and need a distraction, yes? So I’ve been carving out some reading time. I’m reading a paranormal where the characters had sex outside, and up against the car. I really like this book, and the sex scene was half way through, well motivated, and it worked find except…I found myself worrying when they started stripping outside. Can anyone see them? Are they worried about it?
Note the irony—I’ve written sex scenes that take place outside. I tried to assure the readers that the characters were safe from prying eyes, but who knows if it worked.
But all this got me to thinking. Where is the weirdest or most unusual place I’ve read a sex scene take place in a book? The best answer I can pull out of my fried brain is;
On A Horse. Yeah, I don’t suggest trying that one in real life.
What about you all? Do you remember reading love scenes that took place in weird or unusual places? (Remember to your answers appropriate all for a public blog!)
