fist (first) string Team Awesome!
a friend of mine has two offers from two e pubs. happy dance for her!!!her offers though are contingent on her beefing up (lol) her semi sex scenes.she isn't a big sex scene writer so I know she is kind of sweating it. which brings me to my post today. I think everyone has one hinkey thing that they have trouble writing about. hers is vivid sex scenes or at least one that go beyond he kissed her and then they closed the door. mine is fight scenes. I know, you can stop laughing now. I'm first string on the Team Awesome Fight Team. I just have trouble doing it though. when I do write them, I end up rewriting several times. I have a difficult time even visualizing fights. watching fights in movies or tv doesn't help much. I just think fights are my one thing. when I had to add fights and battles to Life in Moonlight, it was like doing higher math. And I am dreading it in the sequel. Not so much with the sex scenes. I have nooooo problem with those. I wish my friend and I could make a deal where I wrote her sex scenes and she wrote my fight scenes. do you guys have an item that is tricky to write? what is it?
