May 27, 2013: The Naughty List

Writing Session #1: The Naughty List
Author/Genre: Trinity Marlow/erotic romance
Words written:  468
Total Words:   468 (this installment)
Time Spent:  30 minutes

 
Notes:
Finally got started on this holiday serial short. I really wasn’t sure
about the subject matter, but once I started writing, I realized that
Jodi and Ty have something else more important to work out. So we’ll see
where that goes, but I think it’s important to the relationship, even
if it means this installment is a bit more tame…



Writing Session #2: The Naughty List
Author/Genre: Trinity Marlow/erotic romance
Words written:  243
Total Words:   711 (this installment)
Time Spent:  30 minutes

 
Notes: Ugh.
Wrote a good couple hundred words before I figured out I was going the
wrong way, deleted, and then started again. Why this part is so hard is
beyond me, but it’s annoying. And my time is slipping away faster than
I’d like today. Have to run check on my defrosting freezer (make sure
the basement isn’t a lake), and then I might take a shower just to think
the rest of this story through. I don’t really have time, but maybe it
will help me get out of my own head and into the story, so to speak…



Writing Session #3: The Naughty List
Author/Genre: Trinity Marlow/erotic romance
Words written:  938
Total Words:   1,649 (this installment)
Time Spent:  1 hour

 
Notes:
Well, this session went better, but it’s still not done. Dang it. I
think it’s honest for the characters though, and that’s what matters. I
just really wish I’d have gotten it done earlier, considering these take
me so long to write…next time, I hope! One more session tonight
should finish this off…

Writing Session #4: The Naughty List
Author/Genre: Trinity Marlow/erotic romance
Words written:  244
Total Words:   1,893 (this installment)
Time Spent: 2 hours

 
Notes: Good lord. Tried to write
while watching TV, got super-few words in. And sometimes I have a really
hard time trying to figure out how to make a sex scene…not-boring.
Because you can only write a few until they all start sounding the same,
and then it takes awhile to figure out how to use the character’s
personalities to make the same basic thing…mean something. And
honestly, sometimes I’m not sure I pull it off, though I always try…

Writing Session #5: The Naughty List
Author/Genre: Trinity Marlow/erotic romance
Words written: 350
Total Words:   2,243 (this installment)
Time Spent: 2 hours

 
Notes: And finished, finally. And
naturally, I realized at the end that I screwed up the continuity
between all three stories too. So I’ll need to make a note to go back
and fix that. Writing this story menage of sorts is a bit like playing
3D chess at times, I swear. 

It’s 1am, and I need to sleep (work tomorrow – I’ll have to write the
serial scene for THHG on my breaks). Tomorrow I’m revamping my entire
writing/publishing schedule for the rest of the year
to accommodate getting all of these holiday stories done and out of the
way. I am *not* going to spend another holiday this year writing all
day. I love writing, but I want my holidays off to enjoy, dang it.
*sigh*
