My 30 Days of Writing-Day 16: Love Makes the World Go Round


…the Bend.

So past the midway point we reach question numero 16, which is:

16. Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how “far” are you willing to go in your writing? ;)

a. Yes

b. Now that is the real question, isn’t it. I don’t consider myself a “romantic” writer. In fact I once wrote a post titled “Love vs. Romance“. Having said that most of my stories do contain a romantic subplot. The first didn’t start with any romantic entanglements then they quickly came to the forefront. In fact, the romantic subplot transformed into the theme of “redemption through love”. The second book also picked up a romantic subplot along the way, in this case the “nobody sees the world as we do” type, with a bit of redemption thrown in for good measure.

But the pièce de résistance when it comes to writing romance is happening right now on RoE. I didn’t plan it that way, but the whole story balances on the relationship between Edward  (not that Edward, my MCs don’t effing sparkle!) and Andrea. Their success or failure will determine the fate of a galaxy. It’s more than just romance of course, but it lies at the heart of the story. If I can pull it off, that is.

c) The sex you mean. Well I’m a fade to black kind of guy when it comes to sex scenes. I don’t shy away from nudity, strong language or the fact that in my universes people do have sex. But I prefer to leave the exact details of any coupling to the readers imagination rather than spoil it with some embarrassing attempts at erotic descriptions.

  2. Gotta love the wacky erotica wannabe scenes people come up with. Like the one who compared boobs to cheese, that one was funny. :P

    I treat love as something almost inevitable in my books, but only when I think two characters really click with each other. Since my characters who fall in love are all adults (for I think that children falling in love and THEN waiting until becoming adults is not only boring but difficult to relate with; I can barely remember about my childhood girlfriends), sex is part of the equation, altough I’d rather keep it PG-13. Just like you say, I much prefer to wink at the reader that they’re off to hankypankyland and that’s it.
