    What lovely memories you have, and can use, Melodie. Of course, it’s not just romance that writers can re-create.

      Rosalind, of course you are dead on. I think the thing that sparked this post was the fact that I recognized suddenly that my writing has changed as I have aged. Perhaps it is also a sign of the freedom that comes with age?

    Great piece. Alas, my publisher made me take out the steamier sex scenes in my latest novel. He’s worried about the new Zon algos that ferret out “erotica” and put it in a separate category away from the regular bestseller lists. Still, I had the fun of writing them….

      I’m going to have to watch for that, Anne. It is a dilemma. I don’t write hot enough to satisfy the erotica market. I hope they come up with guidelines so we all know what lines not to cross.
