I always enjoy Deborah's classes, this one especially. Her writing examples always show how things should effectively be accomplished. Whether you put sex on the page or lead up to a closed-door, Intimate Scenes without Going All the Way, is about learning to show characters' thoughts, emotions and myriad senses to create powerful scenes of intimacy. There are so many ways to approach lovemaking--without the mechanics--than I ever considered. Deborah's own writing examples opened my eyes to the effectiveness of showing the many ways a reader can experience the characters' intimacy: a simple look, a gesture or a few private words or full on sex. Understanding the arsenal of "tools" a writer can use to write these scenes, I now know that there are more options than tab A and tab B.
Deborah's feedback on class homework is always inciteful and helpful. I think this is a class any writer of romance should take.
