Okay...I have a SERIOUS question for everyone.
Now, I have thought of several blog posts over the course of by weekdays while I am in procrastination mode. (it's bad). Very bad this time. I FINALLY finished editing my book and I FINALLY found (or rather she found me) an AWESOME editor. So while I am adding all the finishing touches I can to my book, I was thinking about how awkward it is for me to write kissing scenes.
I can read them. I can watch them. Writing them makes me blush...and it's JUST a kissing scene. Disney has kissing scenes!! Why am I all blushy and embarrassed? It's not like I don't kiss Aladdin (speaking of which, we had pics taken, look!!):
Anyways, I am one of those people who can't be in the same room when someone is reading anything that belongs to me. I run away or I make distracting noises.
Aladdin has read my books and I always feel really stupid when he gets to the kissy parts. I feel like a fifteen year old girl--all giggly and obsessed. Then I think of something Jennifer Armentrout said which was that YA is for people who like to remember all those firsts--like first kiss, first hate, first love. Maybe when I read my book this time, it was as the READER not the WRITER and all the embarrassment actually came from my characters.
So...does anyone else have this problem? Or rather, what do you find embarrassing to write? And why?
