30 Days of Writing: Day Twenty Two

Tell us about one scene between your characters that you’ve never written or told anyone about before! Serious or not.

You remember how on day sixteen I said that I hated Underworld because of the sudden jerk into romance between Selene and Michael?

Yeah, well, when I first started writing these books, I assumed that because they involved vampires — famed for being sensual creatures — I should have at least a dash of romance in there somewhere.

Eager to find some sparks of lust, one of the very early drafts of The Genesis had a scene where Catrina and Fox kissed.

It was pretty much like the scene between Selene and Michael: it came entirely out of nowhere, was over in an instant, and was never mentioned again.

The scene didn’t make it any further than that one time, which was promptly removed, because it was very awkward and just plain wrong, and it was written before I realised a book didn’t need to have romance in it to be complete.
