Here's my April article for the Mocha Memoirs Press blog:

Things You Don't Say To A Writer On A First Date (http://mochamemoirspress.blogspot.com/2013/04/things-you-dont-say-to-writer-on-first.html)

Excerpt:


Let's say you're going out on your very first date with someone. For sake of argument, you're a guy and your date is female. You've reserved a table at a nice restaurant. You bought tickets for the latest hot action movie. A bouquet of spring flowers is sitting in your hot little hand.

The problem is - oh, my God! - you have to talk to her! What on earth do you say?


Here's the problem. She's a writer. You know little about writers except for your impression that most are insane alcoholics who live in garrets. You have no idea what to say to break the ice. Here are a few tips as to what to not say to a writer. If you say or ask any of the following you're likely to get a snarky response, like the first few examples.

Read my post "Velvet Curtains, Love Muscle, And Other Embarrassments" at the Mocha Memoirs Press blog. I talk about shaking up sex terms in erotic fiction so you don't keep repeating the same old words. Then again, you don't want to go as far as "velvet curtains" lest you embarrass yourself.

Sounds an interesting post - I'm off to check it out. I'm pretty good at not repeating expressions in the same book, but suspect I slip into my own personal clichés across different books. G x

Thanks for checking it out. I also try to not repeat expressions, but sometimes I see so many cocks in a sex scene I feel like I'm on a Perdue chicken farm. LOL
