S.E.X. -- Writing the S.ensual E.vocative X.perience

(1/23/12 - 2/6/12)

Writing love scenes can be some of the hardest (no pun intended) prose to create. By the end of this workshop you'll know how to write love scenes like no other! (This workshop is intended for both mainstream romance and erotic romance writers, and writers of mainstream fiction!) In this workshop you'll learn:

  • Sensual language/body part terms
  • How to make your scenes come alive with sensory details
  • Weaving emotion into love scenes (the scenes have to move the story along, no gratuitous sex!)
  • Making each scene unique to the characters and the story
  • The mechanics of the body (ie... anatomy & positions)
  • Getting yourself in the "sex" mind-set
  • Dialogue in love scenes
  • The differences between mainstream romance and erotic romance
Multiple lessons, exercises and critiques provided each week.

***Warning! Be prepared... this class comes with an advisory. It will get dirty... It will be fun. It will be an interesting experience. You will write better sex.
Each workshop purchased individually is $15 or you can purchase both at a discounted rate of $25.
