Well, technically, the week isn’t over as I’m hoping to finish the scene I’m currently on, but it’s pretty much done. I only wrote 9300 words this week, which is pretty poo in my opinion. I got to the scene where my characters need to have sex and I got stuck. I’ve been writing foreplay for about four days. At one point, I even went back and wrote the prologue rather than continuing.
I’ve just never written a gay sex scene before. Also, I don’t know where this novel is going. Not plot-wise, just how am I going to market it? It’s super dark, there’s rape in it, the sex is between two guys even though the romance that is the focus is between a different guy and a girl… it’s just a very odd novel. Quite outside the normal set-up of your typical romance novel. Personally, I’ve never come across anything like it, but if there are books about dino sex I’m sure it’s been done before.
But yeah. I need to just push through and write the damn scene. Once I’m through with that, I’ll need to work on contacting people to do reviews on Kiss of The Fey. I also have to start with my final draft read through, which will basically be me going through the proof copy and flagging any typos that slipped through the last round.
There’s just a lot to be done. Luckily, they’ve cut our hours at work because we’re doing a remodel so we’ve been sent to another store. This isn’t actually “lucky”, as I need the money for school, but I know now that I’m getting enough back from my loans to pay rent so I don’t have to worry about that, at least.
