Love scenes in my novel Dangerous Love, 2010 A.D.

For me to write a love scene, I take on the main character that will be in on the scene. In Dangerous Love, Al, has a last time sexual encounter with Linda, a friend at the office. I build them to my liking, if I am going to be the one in that chapter. When I write the scene, I cna visulize it happening in the heat of the moment or in the romantic way I want it to. With Linda, it's dealing with a sex addict, but Krista? She's what I dreamed of. With her, I build a romantic night in Hawaii, full of the moans and persperation between the sheets. I get up and take a short walk, after the writing of that scene and re-collect my thoughts, to go on into the story. That is why I always say, a writer should take on a character of the novel.
