How do I get that guy naked?

When I can’t figure out how to get a guy naked,
I take a walk. Walking helps me think.

Walking helps me figure out how to get that guy to take off his clothes.
Frankly, I can’t just rip off his shirt and holler “Let’s get it on!”
It has to be romantic and emotional, as well as sexy.

I love you, Mommy

Wait a second.
I’m talking about composing a love scene.
You knew that, right? I wasn’t talking about seducing the electrician.

You are the center of my universe, Mommy.

Golly, this is embarrassing.
I tend to lose my grip on reality when I’m writing love scenes.
Not that my grip on reality was all that tight to begin with. Hardy har har.

I'm tired. Hold me, Mommy.

Admittedly, I’m crazy about writing love scenes for one reason.
They’re a heckuva lot of fun to write.
Yes, heckuva is a word.
Didn’t you know?

Do you have a dog cookie, Mommy?

Wait a minute. Did I feed my kids breakfast this morning?
I’m pretty sure I did, but I feel like I forgot something.
I have the overwhelming urge to feed someone.
But I don’t know why. That’s weird.

At least I can honestly say that my dog had nothing to do this.

This one is funny. I often try to walk to clear my head too and then as I am walking my mind is racing about just such things. Did I lock the door before I left? Where is my cell phone? What if I fall? What should I make for dinner tonight? What does my hair look like right now? Oh it is endless. That is the curse of being a woman I guess. We can’t ever be quiet!

exactly what Michele says . . . we can’t ever be quiet . . . oh . . . we may be quiet in that we don’t actually VERBALISE much . . . but gosh . . . our brains are going a mile-a-minute
I am completely dumbfounded every time I think about my husband’s answer that yes, guys really CAN be thinking ‘nothing’ . . . why did God make our brains so darn different?
good luck on your scene writing . . . and give your sweet pooch a snuggle . . . love to see pics of her . . . and of your girls . . .
thanks for letting us have a glimpse into your world . . . it never disappoints! 🙂

Dogs certainly have the unconditional love thing down pat. On another note, I’m still shopping.

Love this! I love writing love scenes – well, once I work out whether or not things are physically possible, I love writing them…

Thanks for popping by the Fibro today.

Kate’s comment was just what I was thinking – my husband can honestly be thinking about nothing, while my mind is NEVER quiet – always jumping from topic to topic. Strange!

Your dog has such a sweet face! Love the commentary.

P. S. Are there Martians in your book? Cuz aliens can make humans do anything – like lose their clothes magically. If not Martians, how about rain, snow, heat, fire, ripped seams, or falling in the pool?!

The stuff that goes through my head on a walk or exercising or driving in the car – alone – would probably fill a therapist’s chair for years. 😉
