Monday Morning Like Joan Wilder

Or, There’s nothing like a racy scene to get your day started off right.

My current work in progress has a sex scene pretty early on–it’s one of those romance plots where a sexual encounter works as a catalyst to begin a relationship that would otherwise never have developed.

Yesterday I finished the scene leading into that encounter.  So when my alarm went off at 5:15 this morning, it was for one purpose, and one purpose only:  so that I could get up two hours early and write a sex scene.

That, my friends, is called winning.

This is the glamorous life of a romantic novelist that I have been dreaming about since I first saw Romancing the Stone.   

The best part?  I didn’t quite get the scene finished…which means Tuesday will have exactly the same agenda. Darn.

    Wahahahha!! That is awesome. How many people get to claim this agenda in their mornings? Not many, that’s for sure. I guess I never thought of what bad ass perks come from being a romance writer. Good for you, girl, and I bet you didn’t need as much coffee or tea to get you going either of those mornings, did ya? 😉

    • It was the first morning I truly felt like a romance writer in the way I used to imagine being a working romance writer would feel like, that’s for sure! And, no, I did NOT need as much caffeine as usual. 🙂
