I’m over at All Romance’s ARe Cafe today talking about striking the right balance in a horror erotica.
I’ve surpassed the 25K mark on my own horror erotica WIP. After reworking some plot in order to let my characters be themselves rather than trying to squeeze a square peg into a round hole, I’m pretty satisfied with how it’s turning out so far. Not only does this promise (in my head) to be a pretty disturbing horror erotica, it’s the first BDSM story I’ve ever written, so it’s quite challenging. I’m determined to get it right—as much as I can at least—so some days I only eke out a few hundred words.
They’re the “right” words, though and I would rather come back to my WIP every morning reading something I’m mostly satisfied with than a few thousand words that’ll probably get cut in a rewrite. I wish I were blessed enough to slam out 2K before lunch and then another 3K in the afternoon, but progress is progress and I gotta say…so far, despite all the challenges, this has been my favorite story to write so far. It’s hot and angsty and dark—and I friggin’ love it!
