Packing Heat - Formulas

In today's Packing Heat, I talk about writing to a formula as a way to keep yourself on track. I had a listener ask about keeping the proportion of plot and sex in her erotica in balance. My method is to be very conscious of it!

I think that even the most rigid writerly methods don't show through in the final product. You can make your story look effortless during your edits. Unless you post photos of your rows and rows of sticky notes (as I often do!) your readers can just assume your story flowed out of you absolutely perfect the first time around.

I also get the feeling some of my listeners feel guilty and bad about wanting to write sex. Some people will always find fault with you when you stick your neck out and launch creations into the world. You need to do it anyway! (I ramble about that for a while.)
