Okay I’ve been on this one scene for about 3 days (remember I can only write at night and on weekends – oh and I’m taking my time right now). Soooo… every time I go back to it I add more. Now before I go on let me clarify for you….this is a sex scene.
Have I got your attention now? ;-P”””
But it did get me to thinking…I know scary. But how much is too much before you start skimming and looking for something else on the pages?
For me, I’m good as long as there's an emotional arc that pulls me into the characters – I’m invested, but I’d say past 8-10 pages, even I’d get bored. And that goes for writing it too. (And just so you know I'm nowhere near that long on this scene).
So what about you?
Is there such a thing as too much?
Or will you read every word in angst for the next one?
It doesn’t have to be a sex scene. This pertains to too much history in a historical, too much of a fight scene in say an Urban Fantasy, too much of anything. What is too much for you?
If you want to tell me why, that would be fabulous. ;-D
Hugs, oh and thanks for understanding letting me take off last week.
