All done with mirrors...

So, I woke up this morning thinking about mirrors on ceilings. Why? I was thinking about sex in the way writers do. It’s very non sexy and it’s all about making sure every character only has one regular pair of hands and wondering if condoms are necessary in a scene.

Anyway, I looked up at the ceiling and thought about how Blanche out of the Golden Girls explained to the others that lying on your back under a mirror makes your skin slide back therefore no wrinkles on display – however – your boobs also slide back too. Hmmm…lack of wrinkles versus non perkiness. It’s always something in life isn’t it? Then I thought about having sex and looking at yourself and your partner going at it. Then I started to laugh. You can’t write that…it’s a moment to be lived.

Love your blog design.

Mirrors ..I wonder how much we actually need them but I didn't find them sexy until the heroine had her first night with the hero in such a room, with the mirror above the bed, but then he was sexy as hell. I personally would get the oh he's kind of weird vibe if he had a mirror above the bed but now I think it's a little adorably kinky. Depends on whose room it is. Depends on what mood I am in!

I meant to say the heroine in this book Adored by Tina Donahue. Sorry, I sounded mad in the first post!

Mmmm, it also depends on whether either of your characters is blind as a bat (like I am). In which case a mirror probably won't make any difference.

But it's a sexy idea...
