There was a forum thread at NaNoWriMo.org asking how to write non-cheesy romance scenes. I’m going to go with, “do the opposite of this”:
“My heart exploded into butterflies and puppies, and even though the love-puppies weren’t house-trained, it was OK, because they urinated sunshine and sugary syrup, like the kind you give to hummingbirds, all over the carpet of my heart.”
Maybe I should work on my own novel instead of coming up with theoretical, horrible metaphors for non-existent romance novels, but this is so fun.
Over 22,000 words as of today, hoping to get over 25,000 tonight or early tomorrow.
