Welcome to the 45th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week might seem like a little departure but really, it isn’t. Aren’t there lots of characters you know that are the driving force of a book? In sci-fi, many times it is the one in the Captain’s Chair. That chair represents a lot and something different to each character or reader.
For readers, it can be the one in charge. For writers, it can mean so much more. So, this week, we want to know about those characters who are the ones that sit in the chair or the ones that drive the story to its ultimate end.
Now remember, they have to respect the chair. And respecting the chair can mean a lot of things. Such as they aren’t the Captain or the Alpha or the CEO of that company. They respect what that chair represents. Or they want to make passionate love to the one in the chair until they are both, or maybe it’s the three of them, know exactly who is in charge.
Yeah, the chair is something of a sex symbol here at My Sexy Saturday. Remember, we write about those characters. The ones that have survived a war, a lost love, a horrible love, a devastating disease but somehow still manage to be the one in charge. The one sitting in the Captain’s chair. The list goes on and on. They are the characters that inspire you, motivate you to be better than you are. Or more than you are. The ones that make you cry, make you laugh and on whose journey you want to know what happens every step of the way.
These are the ones that fall in love and fall in love deeply, truly, forever. These are those you want on your side for any situation. And it is those characters that be it writer or reader, we care for them, wanting to know every aspect of their lives.
Share with us this week those characters who are in charge and wield it in such a way that everyone loves them. Even those they think don’t. They don’t realize their power because it is natural to them. Right. These are the characters that appeal to all and each are different in lots of ways. Show us the characters that make our hearts sing, make us cry, make us wish for a better tomorrow…help us show them that they are more than the chair.
Share those scenes with us this week. From the moment our couple meets, their first hot kiss, to the fulfillment of a dream, show us the wonders of finding, falling in love and loving your significant other. Show us how they come into their own as they become the one to sit in a position of power.
Giving our readers even more to drool, sigh and love about our stories is our number one goal. Let’s show our readers that happily-ever-afters start with that one special moment, be it soft and gentle or rough and fast. We love good parts of the stories where the characters are making love or about to be loved. Forever. Share each and every moment with this week!
If your story has one or more of these fabulous love scenes in it where the character finds out exactly what it means to be in the Captain’s chair or the power it holds, please share them with us…if not…share those sexy moments that you do have between your characters. Every relationship is important!
Sexy can be anything such as romantic moments like walks on the beach, a home cooked meal or even in another galaxy. It could be two lovers here on Earth dreaming about the day where they go on a magical vacation to another planet. Or staying right here at one of those wonderful places we can find in our own world.
Readers want to see those characters, the ones who can’t get enough of each other as well as ones who are fighting their way back to being part of the world once again. These are the types of characters they can’t forget, the one they want to take home and keep forever. Readers love the kisses, the looks, the touch of each and every one of our characters.
Sexy has nothing to do with looks or status or even wealth. It doesn’t demand perfection and it isn’t pretentious but it does make us want to read those books.
We know that everyone has their own idea of sexy and we all love sexy!
