Season Finale

My writing group, the Parisot Writers' Group, met  Monday morning for the last time before our summer break. After a lively session of reading and critiquing some of our members' amazing writing, we convoyed out to Vanessa's lovely home, La Lune, for a season finale potluck lunch.

Gathered around a massive stone table under welcoming shade trees, we enjoyed good food, good company, and good conversation for most of the afternoon. Topics ranged far and wide...Ann's 46th wedding anniversary, Vanessa's novel that will be published in late July, grandchildren, children, books we've read and writing we've done. We giggled, remembering Bob's unintentional double entendre during our weekend writing workshop in April. His piece about an artist and his paintbrush made us laugh and made him blush! Which, of course, led us into a discussion about writing sex scenes into our novels. Necessary? How much detail? etc. None of us aspire to "50 Shades of Gray" fame, but sex is part of life and how do you tastefully include it in your stories? Anita threatened to assign writing a sex scene as summer homework! Yikes...do you think she'll really do that? Stay tuned....
