Sensual Sunday: It’s all in the delivery.

Words have power. A good wordsmith can write things that can move you to tears, make you angry, or make you laugh. Writing erotica isn’t any different, but people think because it’s sex you can just write it down and that’s fine.
Really? Do you know they have awards for bad sex scenes?
Do you really want to find yourself nominated for this kind of award? No. I didn’t think so.
Like a horror story, erotica must make the reader feel something. Like a romance, it must be organic (not forced), and like any story, it must be told in such a fluid way that the prose does not pull the reader out of the moment.
The link below will take you to a site with a list of words to help expand your erotic vocabulary.
