Under the Covers with a Naughty Book

Is there anything better than reading a naughty book, with a flashlight, while burrowing under the covers?


Wait, I know! Reading a naughty book, with a flashlight, burrowing under the covers, while eating chocolate! Ding, ding, ding...we have a winner!

For more of my take on this monumentally important topic, see my post over at The Debutante Ball today.

(I know. What a cop out. But my characters are cracking the WIP, and I must pay some attention to them, too. Can't have them getting jealous of my blogging time. It makes them act out in a most inappropriate way.)

If you're a writer, and have a minute, tell me what your characters do if they get upset with you. Pout? Sulk? Go crazy? Shoot all the other characters and leave you with no one left to finish your book?

If you're a reader...um, go check out my Deb post. Of course, you're welcome to say hi here, too. And on Twitter. I love seeing you everywhere. :)

P.S. There's still time to enter the Camel Caption Contest from Wednesday. Remember, you can enter as often as you like!

Ha! My characters have been known to not speak to me for a LONG time. Does not bode well for writing. I'm heading over to the ball now.

I tried that once. Not a great idea if your claustrophobic.

My characters speak to me all the time. Some days I can't get them to shut up. Not that I want them to. ;)

I tried that too and the flashlight always made it too hot in there!

Right now my characters have been talking in fits and starts. I'm trying to get them to talk more. :)

Um distracted by your IAQs which I had never noticed before! Hilarious! Oh yes, naughty books under the covers: mine were when I was a teenager-- Peyton Place, Lolita, a few like that which really are tame considered what I could get now but now longer have the interest for!

How about reading a naughty book under the covers with your significant other?

My characters never shut up. I suppose if they felt ignored, they would shout louder.

Have you tried getting chocolate off of a duvet cover?

Heading over!

Know what's better than hiding under the covers with a naughty book and a bag of chocolates? Being a grown-up, and not having to hide anymore!

My characters won't let me ignore them. Very rude that way.

I've had characters that refuse to be ignored. Right now I have a character that I'm having to coax out of the shadows. Come on out. I won't bite. She did tell me her name today, though. That's a start.

My characters quit talking to me. They leer and sneer and cross their arms and refuse to tell me what they would do in the situation I've wrangled them into. "But you WILL live happily ever after!" I assure them, then add quietly, "after I get done putting you through all this terrible stuff."

Ha! Mine go off and do all sorts of things just to spite me. I thought I'd decided *not* to get involved in 15th Century Ottoman palace intrigues. So what does my mc Rosa do? She goes off to petition the Sultan! Grrr...

My characters never get upset with me. I have the power to wipe them out. They better never pull that BS with me. Seriously. I will delete them. I've done it before and I can do it again. Sort of like Bill Cosby saying, "I brought you into this world and I can take you back out again."
