writing update

I have been very busy. It’s mid term for my graduate class and there’s this research paper due Thursday. But I have also been sneaking in a few fiction writing minutes over the last few weeks. Finally finished another scene for We Fit, the sequel to We Three, an erotic romance, emphasis on the romance.

Thought I’d share a preview.

Elena and Jess walked out of the bedroom. Collecting her laptop from the living room, Elena returned to the dining table to set out breakfast items and found colorfully wrapped packages and envelopes at her place and where Jess usually sat when they ate together. She frowned, but then, lifting the card, she remembered a conversation with Eric about taking a spring trip. He must’ve been able to swing it, she thought. “Jess, come out here for a sec.”

“What’s up?” Jess appeared at the space between the dining table and kitchen entry. “Presents?”

“Presents,” she confirmed. “You’ve got a card.”

“What for?”

Elena had already opened her envelope with a card. “It says ‘All That Jazz’.” She caught a piece of paper that fell from the card. “Oh. I think–oh!” She quickly pointed to Jess’s package. “Jess, open yours.”

Jess stood behind her chair and reached for the package first. Elena could feel her own excitement building as she anticipated the blonde’s reaction to Eric’s gift. Out of the clown-wrapped paper, Jess removed a green and gray sweatshirt.

“When am I going to be able to wear a sweatshirt in Miami?” Jess asked. She turned it around holding the sweatshirt with a big Shamrock between the words “Not Irish, Just Drunk.”

“The card,” Elena said, finally unable to hide her impatient excitement. “Read his card.”

Jess lifted the flap out of the unsealed envelope and removed the card. “All That Jazz,” she read aloud then flipped open the front cover. Elena held her breath. “A plane ticket?”

Elena held up her own. “To Chicago!”

“What’s in Chicago?”

“Eric started as a commercial pilot out of O’Hare. He likes to go back every so often.”

Jess read the ticket information. “March 16. 18. That’s three days?”

“Over St Patrick’s Day,” Elena explained pointing at Jess’s sweatshirt then her own, now unpacked, the gold letters splashed over a green shamrock read: Too cute to pinch. “Eric and I have gone a few times. Now you’ll get to experience it, too. They dye the river green and everything is just…” She stumbled to explain. “You’ll love it,” she finished.

Jess slowly smiled and lifted her gaze from the ticket, meeting Elena’s.. Her green eyes filled with bright sparkles. “I’ve …wow. They put dye in the river? How? I’ve never…This is….he got me a ticket.” She sank to the chair still holding the ticket and shirt.

Yep, I decided the trio needed to take a vacation. Must be all this stuck inside I’m feeling from the pandemic.

plotting

I spent most of today writing on We Fit, the sequel to We Three, but that made me think about the way a character’s history affects their interpretation of, and reaction to, other characters’ actions. This totally affects everything in a plot.

Jess was really messed up by a former boyfriend. After all, she ended up in jail because of his actions. It has made her distrust anyone saying “I love you.” When Eric and Elena started showing that they are in love with her, it freaks her out. She thinks she’s in “too deep” and she doesn’t want to go any further.

However, Elena can’t bear to see the young woman pull away, so she goes after her and tries to explain what she feels. The tension of that conversation leaves them both with tears in their eyes.

Last month I spent a lot of time thinking about ways that people show love without saying “I love you” and realized that show vs tell is the only way Elena will get through to Jess without the woman disbelieving her every step of the way. But it’s so subtle, which is not how Elena likes to operate, communicator that she is.

It’s an interesting conflict, inner and outer at the same time.

Just an observation as I continue writing. Have a great night, everyone.

We Fit progress

The last couple days, while I haven’t been blogging, I have been writing. I’ve added another 10,000 words to We Fit, the sequel to We Three, now over 50k. The scenes have all been intimacy, everything from kissing to sex.

In a bid to show how deep the love has become between the characters, I’ve strived to make the intimacy more romantic than carnal. While the sex continues to be explicit, the acts are described with more romantic tones. There are also more pauses in the sexual activity, not because the trio are tired, but because each is savoring the physical connections on a emotional level they find wonderous and new.

The pauses also give me a chance to switch point of view between the characters. In We Three, each sexual encounter stays in one character’s point of view for the entire session. In this way I controlled the slow build of the realization that each was in love with the other. In We Fit, I’m taking brief sexual “intermissions” and giving each character the opportunity to have the same encounter from their point of view, to display how much different and deeper they feel than previous sex. It allows them to show their feelings to their partner (and the reader) in a way that makes the sex even more communicative of love.

In a nutshell, the sex has become more “making love” than “having sex.” If I can carry off that distinction, I feel I will have succeeded in conveying the main message of We Fit.

Here’s an example of what I’m doing. This first scene, from We Three, is oral sex between Elena and Jess. (it’s Elena’s POV, if you can’t tell)

Elena’s moans vibrated against Jess’s clit. Jess was pushed over another edge, and Elena felt the dam slip when it was coated in Jess’s fluids. She pressed it more firmly against the woman’s heated flesh with her fingers and continued licking Jess through another writhing peak, and then another. Finally, Jess’s fingers were nudging, not clutching, and Elena let up. She rested her chin on the top of Jess’s mound, meeting glazed green eyes.

The second scene from We Fit is also oral sex between the two. Can you feel how Elena love is deeper?

With her lips she blazed a moist trail of kisses down Jess’s chest and belly until her nose and tongue burrowed between Jess’s labia and delved into her pussy. The blonde’s jolted “Oh! Mmm,” fluttered into the quiet of the room.

The subtle flavors of the blonde’s fluids soon coated Elena’s chin and cheeks as she elicited more sounds from the blonde’s throat. Moans and bucking hips became “God!” and breathy demands of “Fuck me. Please.”

Elena kissed Jess’s inner thighs, then shifted her attentions from tongue only, to tongue and fingers, curling two then three inside the woman’s pussy and eagerly pressing toward and finding her G spot. New moisture filled Jess’s channel as she came with a gasp and cried out Elena’s name. Elena’s fingers became coated and the liquid dripped into her palm.

She licked and sucked Jess’s labia and clit as the blonde came down from her orgasm.

One arm on Elena’s back and the other flung across her eyes, Jess moaned, “My legs are jelly.”

It was easy to agree because Elena felt her body shaking. She grinned proudly. “You asked, I delivered.”

Bit of a difference, huh? Share your thoughts in the comments.
