Welcome to the 78th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week’s theme is My Sexy Date. Not every couple falls in love at first sight. Sure, many do know the moment they see someone but what about those who don’t. They go on dates. Sometimes lots of dates. Sometimes not enough dates. Hopefully there is at least one they can consider a sexy date. The type where fireworks goes off from the moment they are picked up. This week is about those dates that turn into that special one.
It doesn’t have to start out nice or wonderful or even memorable but at some point during the date, life changes. Suddenly what we know has become skewed and different. We’ve fallen for someone and hard. This week is about that fall, about what our characters feel, think and want. And it’s all about making it sexy. As writers, we love putting those words down and getting them just right.
It doesn’t have to be all about where they went, what they saw or anything to do with the day. It can be all about their emotional change toward each other and the moment it strikes them that there is something different about this person. And it can happen anywhere: a horse stall, a spaceship, a planetary moon, a restaurant over a good meal or maybe the 4th of July picnic. Anywhere loves happens is what this week is about.
There’s a million ways people can fall in love and many times it is on a date. Then there are those dates where they start out disastrous and yet they turn out wonderful. Think Romancing the Stone and Joan Wilder’s best time ever. We want to hear about each and every one of those times. It can happen in the most unlikely way, at the most unlikely times. Still, we know it’s going to be hot…hot…HOT!
Give readers more to drool, sigh and love about our work as we share our special love stories with them. Show readers that happily-ever-afters start with some fantastic moments, be it soft and gentle or rough and fast. We love the good parts of the stories where the characters are making love or about to be loved and even the morning after. Forever. We love all the parts that show us the sexy characters we’ve come to care about. Share each and every moment with us this week!
If your story has one or more of these fabulous moments with some very sexy, hot characters in a love that’s destined to last forever, please share them with us…share all those sexy moments that you have between your characters even if your story doesn’t exactly fit the theme this week…remember 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 or 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!
