Last week I finished writing my first "love scene"
I am very glad I took the decision to go for publication under a nom de plume.
It is, I suppose, quite mild (only slightly past the 9 o'clock watershed if it were on TV)but a bit emotionally torrid.
Unlike most stuff in books you can't really say if its realistic as people don't really talk about this sort of stuff (and if they do often don't tell the truth). You do worry you are inadvertantly giving too much away about yourself (how do authors like Jilly Cooper and Edwina Currie ever dare go down the shops?)
Views about this sort of thing? what is good, bad etc in your view? (Bearing in mind this is a website intended for family fire side reading)
"The importance of being a good horsemaster should be impressed on every mounted soldier. He should be taught to look upon his horse as his best friend, to study it, to take a pride in its appearance and to look after its wants before his own"

Bee Movie: According to all known laws of aviation,
there is no way a bee should be able to fly.
Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground.
The bee, of course, flies anyway
because bees don't care
