Presentation – FIFTY SHADES OF HOT – As the title of Virginia Nosky’s workshop suggests, the intensity of love and sex scenes is all over the map. The writer’s audience expects a certain amount of heat, from mild to blazing hot and many degrees in between. She delves into the biology and games of the man/woman attraction and its escalation, and looks at directions the
writer can go to satisfy the reader’s expectations and, not to forget, those of the characters in the story. Nosky also stresses that writing sweetly-warm to volcanic-hot romantic scenes is as much fun for the writer as it is for the reader and the characters involved in those Fifty Shades of Heat.
