Naughty Blog Hop
Well, I'm supposed to write about something Naughty... *big grin* oh but there's so much to write and so little time to write it lol
Ever done something a "little" naughty? Made out in a car at a rest stop, tell your kids you're going to the store, but you're really going to the coffee shop (well it's technically true ;P), or maybe it was skip a college class to go watch Phantom of the Opera in the theatres. *Hey, it was drama class I skipped, so it's not really that bad.*
In a romance book, it's always the good who win. But isn't it the good person who can actually be a little naughty--in bed or out--who actually thrills as? Something I noticed, especially in HEA romance, is we sometimes expect our heroes and heroines to be TOO perfect, allowing little to no human foibles. One fun thing of writing erotica, we're able to push the boundaries of what's naughty, and make them loveable for them being a little or a lot naughty.
Also, a strong woman, in her life and in her sensuality, has become more "common" and in my mind, makes them much more interesting to read about. Isn't it more satisfying to go through hell with a character and be with them as they marched out, head held high, the devil at their feet, the man at their side? No matter what it took, they did what had to be done. But they need a little weakness, and there's the hard part. You can't have them breaking down at important times. And for me, internal weakness that a character hides, or is able to get past to accomplish what needs to be done, is more heartbreaking than one who can't do what needs to be done because they allow it to overcome them. I have a harder time having sympathy for them.
Any Doctor Who fans out there? Ever seen the two part Santaran Episodes with Donna as the main companion and a reprisal of Martha? Donna doing what needed to be done, despite her lack of faith in herself, was a real moment of truth and strength. She overcame her weakness.
Has there ever been something exciting you wanted to do, but were too much of a coward? Did you overcome it then? Next time? Ever? I've missed out on a couple good things cuz I didn't go with my instincts. I learned my lesson-mostly-lol. Sometimes I still overthink instead of going with my instinct.
And this post is rambling into the three thousand posts I made in my mind but was unable to finish and do what I wanted done. Sigh.
The big question is, what kind of naughty have you been? The good or the bad? :D and, feel free to share all and any deets you want. lol The one who shares the best naughty story will win a copy of The Captain's Christmas :) If we get enough lovely stories, I may have to give away Ravaged where I introduce the werebears in a teaser meant to make you want more.
And yes, I'm writing the full lenght story to go with the teaser. LOL it's just not next... ;-)
