A Little More Into the Mind of the NaNo Novelist

[Reading Time: 2 – 3 minutes]

I thought I would share a snippet of one my steamier scenes. I read through it and feel it’s PG enough for this blog.


His arms draw me backward and into him. It would seem he was in a state of undress as well. His hands wrap around my waist, holding me tight. His lips run along my neck. It tickles, but is intoxicating. I want more and I want less. I want him to turn me around so I can kiss him deeply. And I want him to keep doing exactly what he is doing. Right at this very moment, I want him right where he is. I no longer want to think. Right now all I want to do is feel. I want to feel his lips run over my neck, down my back, down my arms. I want to feel his tongue as it flicks out, licking the salt off my skin. I want to feel his hands, cupping my breasts, pinching my nipples. I want to feel his arms around me, never letting go. I want to feel his hands as they slowly tease me, as they wander and roam. I want to feel him and me, together.


Please let me know what you think ~ honestly. I would rather know it’s trash and ditch it in the rewrite. I would love to know what you see, feel, etc., etc., etc. The whole idea is to provoke emotion. I really do appreciate your thoughts.
