A new story! (And Carrie Underwood.)

I didn't write (much) Wednesday, nothing Thursday, Friday I finally came up with a new plot and now I've got about 1.5 pages written. I've decided to go through with my threat and, well, now I'm writing a romance. Seriously.

I'm somewhat pleased, and yet utterly horrified. How the hell am I going to write a m/f sex scene? I don't have a vagina! Good god.

In other news, I kind of love Carrie Underwood's new single "Cowboy Casanova." That woman can do no wrong.

This is true. Most slash writers (as far as I've been able to tell, about 98% of them) are female. I do actually read some het smut... hmm. I'll just need a female to sex-beta everything when I'm done. Haha.

I can't write sex scenes to save my life. They always wind up being like movie scenes on television, where it cuts to the next scene just as it's about to get interesting. As I was a bit "experimental" in my mid-twenties, I technically have all the experience necessary for just about any permutation that a central female character (as mine tend to be) could find herself in, but my repression kicks in and I always get too squeamish to go into details...or worse, I try, and it sounds completely cheesy.

Yeah, my only sex scenes up till now have been "fade to black." I'm not exactly experienced, but I've read so many sex scenes in my time that I should be able to figure it out. I'm a bit of a prude myself, so hopefully it won't be too difficult. Or cheesy. ($10 says it'll be cheesy!)

If all goes as planned my novel will have 3 sex scenes. The one in the first chapter - or second - will be an unpleasant experience for the protagonist, because she's a virgin and she hooked up with a guy who doesn't know how to pleasure his, ah, acquaintances. Then she'll get it on a few times (no more than once written) with your typical romance hero and it'll be great. Then she goes back to the original guy - b/c love > sex - and, ah, they figure out how to make it better. I don't know if any of it will be realistic, but why not, right?
