“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia”. ~E.L. Doctorow
I have known for a very long time that I have two personalities. I think that every writer does. It is the only way to be able to separate reality from fiction.
Being an erotic writer you have to even more so I think. You have to be able to tell a story from a sexually tantalizing point of view.
I can’t think about half the things I write about all day. I would never leave the bedroom if I did. (not that would be a problem…but I have kids to take care of and things to do.)
For me, to write erotica I have to put myself in the mood. I have to breathe sexually for the entire time that I write. I ooze it in every sentence and in every thought.
Being able to separate my erotic life from my everyday life. It is a must!
But it comes naturally to me.
From a very young age, I have been able to live as two people. I felt that I lived two lives and no one knew. I could be the smart obedient child, sweet little girl but behind closed doors I was intrigued by sexual passion and the lustrous sexual appeal.
I am a freaking pro at it!
Most people are shocked that I write Erotica in the first place.
They are not shocked that I write. I have been doing that for a very long time. (I used to be a news reporter. Bet you didn’t know that!)
I am two people and I embrace both. Most of the time I am mom, wife, daughter and sister that can be somewhat obsessive at times. I can be serious and dedicated and… a little conservative.
But when it is dark and I am in my element, I can get freaky and kinky and completely ready to sexually explore my world (a little wine doesn’t hurt).
I believe that it makes my writing so much better because I give myself the permission to completely let go when I write.
I am two people and I love it.
My husband embraces both personalities.
Secretly though, I think he prefers the kinky version.
