Spring--Season of Sex
Do you remember Bambi? I think my earliest recollection of “the birds and the bees” comes from that movie, when all the animals--even the skunk--become smitten with members of the opposite sex. And the next thing you know, there are a lot of baby animated critters running around.
What is it about spring that gets our sap flowing? The equinox isn’t until March 20th, but I’ve got to admit this writer’s feeling a bit frisky. The snow’s melting. The first green shoots are coming up close to the house. The birds are back. And suddenly I just can’t wait to write those hot scenes between Sky and Alec, the heroine and hero in my work in progress.
Somehow, with the warmer weather, my husband doesn’t seem as annoying as he did in late February, when cabin fever reached its unendurable peak in our house. In fact, I’m planning dates, spending more time with him, and he’s looking downright attractive to me. Spring’s on its way, and not a moment too soon!
So, does spring make you feel sexy? Eager to kick up your heels and sow some wild oats? What about impulsive? Anyone have wild spring break memories they want to share? Or are you more the “April is the Cruelest Month” sort? In any case, jump right in and let’s talk about spring.
Happy reading and writing!
