Last night Poppy’s character finally gelled for me. When I plotted the story out, I thought I understood her motivation, but as I started writing it…Meh. Interestingly enough, I got it when I started writing the first sex scene. Wonder why that is? I never can write a sex scene unless I really understand and feel the characters in my gut. I never really got that with Poppy and Michael, and now I do. Now I’ve got it and I’m over the moon.
Another interesting fact, I write most scenes in longhand, but sex scenes I write at the keyboard WITH MY EYES closed. Isn’t that funny? I wonder why I do that?
