What is it about the spring-like weather…
that makes me want to write? Every spring I just feel like writing! I always want to finish my book. I want to write new stories or start a new book.
This “winter” hasn’t been much of one here. We have had 40 degree weather practically everyday for the last 4 months! We have had almost zero inches of snow fall, and the little that did fall melted very quickly. We had RAIN in January. Rain. In January. Those 3 words have never been uttered by me before because that has absolutely never happened in the 27 years I have lived in this state. We have been able to see our lawn all season (and joked about mowing it)! Our pool isn’t being crushed under 4 feet of snow! And I have to say, I absolutely LOVE it! I wish every winter was this way!
So anyway, back to the point, I am feeling the writing bug again. The only problem is, whenever I go to write a story, it always has lots of sex in it (of the lesbian variety). I don’t want to be a romance writer, but I can’t get away from it! So my question to all of you is, how much sex is too much sex in a book? How much detail do you like to read? Would you rather read a book that has hints of it, but not graphic descriptions of it? (my scenes are never that graphic) Or do you like books with no sex at all in them?
**I realize I just wrote sex 4 (now 5) times. The pervs that will be coming out of the woodwork will be endless!**
My next question is, what kind of books do you like to read ? My stories always have lesbian characters as the leads……Do you like mystery? Romance? Drama? Am I limiting myself by writing about lesbian characters?
I’d love to know what you all would find interesting in a novel. Maybe that will help guide me where to go from here!
