That’s very true :slight_smile: but I’ve gotten more confident since I started :slight_smile:


#1825

Oh, I get nervous too! I don’t know why hitting that ‘publish’ button is so hard! I mean, you CAN take it down or change it. But hitting that button can be hard some days!


#1826

Omg, that’s exactly how I feel, lol.


#1827

I think it’s pretty common. I’ve learned to tell myself exactly that-- that I can change it or remove it if I decide I want to


#1828

That’s sort of what I’m trying but I’m keeping it as wholesome as I can, the problem is I’m working with kid characters, and it’s kind of like a farewell to the story series. So I’m trying to think of doing something with the kids. but I don’t know what, or I do but I’m not sure if it’ll play well.


#1829

Perhaps you could put your ideas in an outline… For me, that works to see how the different aspects of your story can be tied together.


#1830

Oh I see. Oooh, just saw the next comment. Maybe you should try an outline. Then put on various endings, see what you like.


#1831

Exactly. And what do you and @LiAWake think about sex in romance? I don’t write a sex scene… but I was told a lot of readers look for that in romance… ?


#1832

Well what I’m sort of thinking is using the kid, because I’ve set it up as the one kid being a sleep walker, so I was thinking of using that. I’ll see though :slight_smile:


#1833

I might again I might exploit the sleep walking kid a bit :slight_smile:


#1834

I think it depends on the story you are telling and if it fits. I have written sex scenes into all my stories.


#1835

I should clarify… I mean explicit sex scenes


#1836

Interesting. Try it. See if it works. Kids definitely sleep walk! I have one that roams all night!


#1837

It truly just depends on whether or not you feel like writing one. If it flows as a part of the story, then you can, but sex in a romance novel isn’t a requirement.


#1838

Umm I’m sorta 50/50 I’m willing to add them but I tend to lean toward more of the emotional sense of it but then again I enjoy a good train wreck and sometimes that’s where I’ll create a small derailment lol :slight_smile:


#1839

Hi. I totally agree with that statement. If it fits, it fits. There is nothing worse than an out of place, awkward scene.


#1840

Oh expicit, I’ve sorta teased it but I enjoy emotionally torturing my characters :slight_smile:


#1841

Then everyone covers there eyes and goes O.O


#1842

I agree to, I use it as a story element as much as I can but if it’s not needed then I just dont worry about it :slight_smile:


#1843

Hahahaha! Exactly!
