I’m Getting Sucked In
I can feel it. This new topic has snagged my attention like a shiny dime on blacktop.
It’s not because that’s the topic of discussion over at RWKF this week. Sexual tension has been an interest since I read Roxanne St. Claire’s book Dangerous Curves.
I read it because it was an entry in the Daphne Published Division contest and I was a judge. But I immediately noticed this author had a way with attraction and heat and sex. I was so intruigued that after I’d read it and judged it, I reread it for the specific purpose of figuring out just how she kept that spark so friggin’ hot.
As I mentioned in my post on RWKF today, I’m taking a class in Sexual Tension with Mary Buckham. She’s guiding us step by step through the stages of intimacy, explains how the elements relate back to evolution (which also illustrates why these stages are so powerful and meaningful in the sexual cycle) and showing examples in other authors work. The subtlety is amazing, the results awesome. Something I absolutely have to master.
I haven’t been so fascinated with a subject since I took Empowering Character Emotions and The Deep EDITS System with Margie Lawson.
And everyone who knows me knows what happens when I get caught up in something new.
I’m in big trouble.
Are there subjects, either general or writing craft that grab your attention and don’t let go until you’ve thoroughly explored and/or mastered them?
