Whew....I. Am. Spent!
...and they all came in a burst of light and fell into an exhausted heap of arms, legs and other well used body parts.
Okay, so these are not the words I used as the culmination of my threesome in the WIP, but there was many a moment that I wanted to. I'll tell ya, having a menage has to be easier than writing one.
Hmmmm, maybe not.
You know the hardest part was remembering where and what each person was doing! Who was on their knees, could that one balance on the ledge and where the heck are her hands? I definitely need some sort of chart to track all of the movement, but dang, the thought of that kinda takes me out of the moment, ya know. Slot a into slip b on top of dangle c - not very sexy.
Perhaps it would be better if I labeled them M1, F and M2 or letters of their first names, R, L and T, but then what? A flow chart? A technical book? Oooh..stick people! LOL
Somehow I don't see myself utilizing any of these fine ideas, though the stick figures have a certain appeal. No, I think I'd rather just visualize my way through the act in the rough draft. It helps me pull out the emotional side of things. I think I'll leave the technicals for the first set of edits.
How about you...graphs, charts and stick figures for the sex scenes or do you fly by the seat of your pants?
