It's a Small Cyber-World
Wow! Just met a fellow blogger/fellow Gonna-Bee(er) today. Hi Kat! And thanks for your comment! Networking is the way to go! Build a blog and they will come! LOL

We Gonna-Bees are a hardy lot. Most of us write romance and hope to one day be published in one or more various romance houses. Some of us actually have! Congrats to all of you!

Some of my family and most aquaintences scoff when I mention romance novels...they are seen as format trash! Excuse me! Romance is hard to write! Have you ever sat down and tried to write a romance story? Dialogue? Sex? For example...

"Hayden moved ever closer to his quarry, trapping her against the wall of the barn, hands on either side of her face. He was in no hurry.

Rose flushed as his body met hers and teased her senses. "You just can't come in here and treat me like this!"

"Treat you like what?" he whispered softly in her ear.

"Like someone with no morals."

Hayden laughed, a sexy whisper that made her shiver all over. "Morals? Rosie, hon, you won't know what the word means after I get started."

See? It either makes you horny writing it and/or makes you laugh. But it isn't that easy to write. I am not a professional at this time, but I know how you write it is very important. Anyone can write a sex scene, but a bad writer will make it sound choppy and crude and unbelievable. A good writer, a position I aspire to, makes the character's and the reader's bodies shiver in expectation and their skin tingle in ectasy. Here is one of my favorite writing quotes....

"The storyteller who keeps us riveted tells us that the sunset cast a soft, pink light on the mountains or glittered on the lake like so many golden coins."~I.J. SchecterWriter’s Digest, May 2004

So true. Yes, I wrote the scene between Hayden and Rose off the top of my head and to me it has promise. Hmmmmm....I'll have to work on it a bit. The muse is calling.

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
