30 Days of Writing: Day Sixteen

Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how “far” are you willing to go in your writing? 😉

Short answer: no, and not very.

A slightly longer answer is — with the exception of one or two skimmed over assumed relationships, mostly between minor characters — no, not yet. The only romance I can really mention would be that between Fox and Amy in the Vampire’s Son, but as that’s still only half-finished (along with just about everything else I’ve written, ever), I haven’t had much chance to get into that side of the whole thing.

When I do get around to them, though, I suspect I will keep them relatively demur; I’m not a fan of erotica, so I imagine trying to force it would only end up in disastrously awkward — probably laughably so — consequences.

I also haven’t written any romantic relations, because they’ve simply not come up. I’m abhorrent to the idea of forcing a romance for the sake of readership (or viewer…ship, for that matter; I call Underworld one of my favourite films, and yet I come over all nerdrage-esque when Selene and Michael Corvin are just pushed together in that contrived plot convenience.). At the end of the day, no one has formed that much of a bond, yet.

I have to keep saying “yet”, as it’s still likely that things will happen between various parties, but right now, they haven’t.

Watch This Space, etc!
