The Evolution Of Romance In The Book You’re Writing

this is a repost from http://www.behind-the-book.blogspot.com July 2007

I’m in the midst of writing my live story sexual intrigue romance called Sex Weed (http://sylviahubbard.blogspot.com/) I really understood the evolution of romance. The hook line in Sex Weed is “One taste and he can’t get enough.”


It’s about Dyson who decides to get revenge by sleeping with his brother’s wife, Melissa, but what he thought he could just tap ended up being a very involved relationship with this mysterious young woman.

Of course it has the usual non-communication isues in a romance, deceit, lies and you can’t have a good romance without a lot of drama.
In the beginning of Sex Weed we open to Dyson trying to blow Melissa’s back out across his desk. Pile driving in her for his own demented selfish sexual pleasure. Blackmailed to enjoy the pleasure of Dyson’s rough lovemaking, Melissa does enjoys it and their relationship is that.
Sex Sex and more sex, wherever they can get it and however they can make it happen.
As the story evolves, as much as they try to keep their own emotions at bay, the drama that plays out between them and the people around them draws them closer and closer together and they find themselves in a position where the doorway of love is in front of them and although both of them want to walk through, of course its all a matter of trust when it comes to love.
Since this is one of my live story’s where I post on a daily base (three times a week to be honest) a lot of the readers who got on this train to read Sex Weed had complained that this was just going to be another sex story, but now as we hit the balls out climax where danger is coming down fast and their relationship is in jeopardy of ending, the readers are finding out that this story is more complex than what they thought.
But isn’t that what love is? Complex?
One reader commented on the story by saying:

I love this update.. This story has so evolved from the first chapter where lust and hate filled melissa and Dyson..to now , where love and trust are fighting for equal supremacy…but I know their avowals of love is but an inch away! Love your stories sylvia. Wow!


In all of this, I learn as I opened up Dyson and Melissa’s hearts to each other for the reader is that everyone falls in love a different kind of way. It’s kind of like eating food at the table.
Everyone has the same plate with the same portions, but how it’s eaten and tasted from each
individual at the table is a different kind of way.
I like having people fall in love and I think as a writer, having a different experience for your reader is important. True there really can’t be a new way to write a book, introduce a plot or even bring out the wonderfulness of a character, but there are a trillion ways to fall in love. And Each book of love is a different story.
And I hope to explore all the new ways in every way in each book I write.
