Writing And Knowing When To Stop

When I write, I usually do so in big chunks of time. Sometimes I don’t want to stop because I’m on a roll and I feel like I need to get it all down before I lose it.  There are times though when the writing itself makes me stop because I type something I find so funny that the intensity of the moment is dissolved and there is no way I’m going to get it back right now.

Here is some text from the upcoming book Unforgettable. When I was writing this love scene I had to stop and go do something else. This is what I wrote:

She rubbed their sexes together while he moved onto the other breast intent on making her nipples firm and flushed with oink.

The last word was supposed to be pink.  Pig references in sex scenes – not good.15161-illustration-of-cartoon-pig-pv
