Hi...haven't been here for a while, a long while, but in need of writing therapy. I have tons of things started and some close to being finished, but I always get to a certain point and can't go any further. Usually it tends to happen when my characters take their relationship to the next level. I have a good story, but the sex scenes (I write romantic suspense btw) always hang me up.
After the 50 Shades of Gray phenom hit I was talking to one of my old writing buddies about it and she suggested I give writing erotica a try. Write under a pen name and sell it to Amazon. She said this would probably help me with getting over writing the sex scenes in my mainstream writing.
Well, now I can write a pretty steamy sex scene, but I have no story to go with it. I've totally gone the opposite direction. Haven't been able to go back to my mainstream writing because that all seems too tame now. I've ruined myself...LOL.
Any advise from anyone????
