Tenderness

I don't know if I'm any good at writing emotional scenes. I can write sex scenes, but it's hard to get the emotion in there. It's easy to write "she was mad" or "he was excited", but it's difficult to express it in any way.

I've written several scenes where my characters are pregnant or are giving birth, and because I've never experienced that, I think that the scenes are terrible. They probably turn out more funny than tender.

It's hard to project myself into a situation I've never been in, but that's what I have to do as a writer.
