So there I was, just typing away leaning my head slightly to the right (to hear my characters demands being whispered in my ears better), when all of the sudden, one of my main characters gets… horny (I’m blushing just typing this word!) My fingers fly across the board trying to keep up with what she has in mind and I can’t help but think: I can’t write that! MY PARENTS ARE GONNA READ THIS!!!!
Now the scene in question is no Fifty Shades of Grey or my dear friend, R.J. Keller’s, Waiting for Spring, but it did make me get red in the face just thinking about my dad reading it. Oh dear.
Fellow writers: What do you do in this situation? Pretend like you don’t have parents? Use a pen name? Or do you stick your head up high and say, “Yes, I wrote that questionable values scene, and I may just write a few more!”
Yeah, I think so too. I think I’ll go write those now. 🙂
Coming Friday: My interview with writer and super-duper friend, Amy Miles of the book, Forbidden, currently sitting in kindle’s top 100 shelves.
