SO, where do I go from here? Delbert and Miriam embracing in their ‘birthday suits’ in a darkened room with a bed at hand. What next; in the past, I have ‘cut’ away to the next day. If I keep going with this (entirely natural and familiar) activity, I wonder – will I feel compelled to publish the novel under a pseudonym? My good friend and writing critique partner, romance author Mara Fox ,publishes under her maiden name – but I don’t have one of those.
What would you do? Maybe I should keep writing this scene; I can always take it out later. It will probably be ‘cheesy’ anyway. This stuff isn’t easy to write.
PS: “in your birthday suit” was what my mother called being naked.
