Uber Author's Good and Bad Sex Scenes

Here are three questions/comments I often get regarding my being a published romance author:

1) How hard can it be to write a romance novel? It's all sex, right? You whip that out in the evening after research, right?

2) How long does it take you? It's just a love story, right? Can I tell you this sexy story idea I have and maybe you can tell me how to write it quickly?

3) I've always wanted to write. I just don't have the time. If I can just find some, I can easily write a two or three books, I have so many things happening in my life....

I've only been published since 2002, a mere four years, but it seems, the more people are aware of my "other" job, the more I hear about how easy it is to write, except for the time factor thing. It's almost as if they are accusing me of having too much time on my hands! ;-)

I wish I could show them the following video. It's a very well-done commercial made by Honda. It doesn't say a word about the car (book) as the parts (words and scenes) collide and move each other with precision, bringing the viewer (reader) inexorably to the end product (ending).

I want to say that everything takes time. This commercial, I've been told, was painstakingly put together with over 600 film takes. Imagine the re-dos (rewrites) and the creative process to make everything click just right (plot, character, action, ending).

As for the old (getting stale to the point of fungified) argument of how easy it is to write sensual and sexy scenes, I usually nod and say, "No, research takes about three or four days, then I let the poor man rest up a bit before I resume." ;-)

But isn't this a coooool commercial? When I have good writing periods, things click just like this ad. Click on ARROW to stay on this page:




However, when things are going wrong and I'm struggling, this is what I get:



Heeheeheeheeheeheee. Honest. That's exactly what a bad sex scene reads like....


Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

LMAO, Ok that was sick. Man I wish I understood what they were saying in the cow humper's video. But you know I'm grateful I've only read a very few bad sex scenes. LOL But I think your wrong on this one. When I read a bad sex scene it's all I can do not turn pages just to get out of it. And I never go back. I've re-watched this video and I have tears coming down my face I'm laughing so hard. LOL This one is going into my favorites ~Athena

Glad you had a good laugh, Athena ;-). What I meant was, writing sex scenes, when it's a struggle, is actually like this poor farmer and cow because everything on the page reads like lowbrow comedy and misunderstood body language. Heh.
