Writing erotica has its challenges. One of those challenges is finding time to write when you have kids in the “under-18” crowd. You almost HAVE to wait until they’re in bed to write some of the juicier scenes. A while back, I giddily exchanged a few tweets with one of our FAVE authors, CD Reiss, on this very topic. (insert girly squeal here- I’m a total fan geek over her!)
@CDReisswriter: Every try writing erotica when the kids are up and roaming around the house? No? Well, then you’ve never experienced true stress.
@RRaines_Writer: Haha just stalking and saw this. So true!! And my kids can READ. Yikes!
@CDReisswriter: I got my 9YO sneaking up behind me after he’s supposed to be in bed. Kinda hard to let Jonathan lay down his business at that point.
@RRaines_Writer: Right! Mommy, What’s a …..?
@CDReisswriter: Why does he keep touching her cat? And they keep coming but where are they going?
@RRaines_Writer: omg I’m dying! Haha.
But seriously, even if your kids aren’t leaning over your shoulder trying to sneak a peak, it’s just a buzz kill to have their crappy cartoons blaring in the background or to interrupt a hot blow-job scene to referee a sibling argument.
Hey you writers…do you have a solution, other than becoming a night owl??
