I believe grown folks have sex. Two consenting adults who understand the consequences of their actions generally enjoy the benefits of sex. Unlike our teens who believe sex makes them an adult. Plus, they don't consider what their actions may result in. That being said, the characters in my novels have fun having sex, getting to know more about each other until some pivotal moment changes everything.
One afternoon during my lunch hour I sat at a table editing a few pages from one of my manuscripts. Karen Edie, one of the library staff, glanced over my shoulder and said, "Wow! There's alot of red ink on those pages."
I went on to explain to her that I was revamping one of my love scenes. She laughed and replied, "Love scenes take a lot of red ink."
When I looked at my pages, I realized that I had pretty much covered the pages in red. So the next time you read a love scene, I want you to consider all the time, red ink, and sometimes practice that goes into writing a hot, sizzling, and satisfying love scene.
