So….this idea just popped into my head–(because I’m just so awesome) *Dusts shoulders off*–and since I received a lot of awesome feedback from you wonderful homo sapiens, about whether or not sex in YA was acceptable LINK, that was where this epical post stemmed from.
And it also gives me quiet the dilemma…..
Since I’m saving myself for marriage, I find it rather ironic and cruel when having to write a very intimate scene *wink, wink* between my two characters when I have no idea how it goes….I mean, I know the mechanics of it and stuff, don’t get me wrong, and I’ve read plenty of descriptive books and have seen it sometimes in movies (even though I’m totally that one chick that hides her face and kind of blushes)–>And don’t even get me STARTED on if one comes on and I’m *shudders* with my parents or something…
But still, with that being said, trying to explain the mechanics and details of it solely based off of what I’ve seen and read…..
IS EXTRAORDINARILY DIFFICULT.
Someone hug me. A virtual one shall suffice.
Sooooooooo…… I happen to be a Pinterest junkie and have a board (which I have made private because…TOO ASHAMED…) for which I use to pin up cute and inspiring pictures of couples, whether they be kissing or whatever, –>I solemnly swear there’s no R-rated stuff.) and I’ll pay extra attention when watching a movie and an ‘intimate’ moment comes on. *wink, wink* But then it’s still hard ya’ll.
I no joke.
I think it’s safe to say that I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FRICK I’M DOING. And I thought you guys should know how AWKWARD of a predicament this puts me in.
Not kidding. It’s really awkward.
Over to you:
Any advice you guys can give me? I NEEDS to hear from you guys! What do you think would help me with finding that….creativity? That SPARK? when writing a love scene? How about some good “intimate” moments in YA that were your favorites? Quotes? Anything. I need something.
