More Than You Want to Know

I have been crazy busy at work these days and still don't have Internet at home so I am remiss in writing. Not that anything exciting has been happening, so it's not like you're missing anything.

We went over my story in writing class on Tuesday and everyone was very positive. They did say, though, that the boyfriend character was somewhat one-dimensional and that it was hard to understand why the narrator was with him. Hmm...I'll have to think about that one. The story needs better description in several scenes and a more solid conclusion and a better description of brain death. People were confused about how brain death works. I also found another story this weekend that I started a long time ago. I don't even remember writing it, but the central character is a man named Cal who is returning home after being gone for a long time. I liked it--I want to work on it, if only because I need to have at least one story that features a male protagonist.

The writing exercise for the beginning of class was to write an erotic scene. I won't retype mine here---not because it's embarrassing or explicit, just that it might be too revealing in other ways (for certain peeps who read this blog). We all read our pieces in class. It was interesting to hear the other members of class tackle this exercise. Most were memories, but not all. One woman wrote about her high school crush, another about a love affair with a professor, another about one or two vivid moments with an ex husband. Try writing erotica some time. It's not easy.

It was about a kiss--that's all, nothing too exciting. Write your own!

I've tried to write my own, but there aren't enough synonyms for wang.
