Creating Two New Novels. Writing One Chapter Weekly. Podcasting As I Go. Welcome to The Experiment.
Sarah slipped her tongue in between Emmanuelle’s parted lips like a sweet seduction. The kiss felt like the girls in his class looked when they sucked on a blow pop. A girl would lock eyes on the guy of her choice and then pull the bright red ball out of her mouth only to slowly, and with some force against her lips, push it back inside. She did it to plant the type of thoughts in the guy’s mind that Sarah’s kiss planted in him at that moment.
Emmanuelle placed his hands on Sarah’s, the-right-kind-of-thick hips, and applied light pressure. The downward momentum guided her off of her tiptoes, causing her to lose the extra inch of height she needed to keep the kiss going. Their lips parted. “Whoa, babe. What’s up?”
Sarah tighten her fingers around Emmanelle’s curls and, undeterred, rose on back onto her toes. “Nothing’s up.” She kissed him again with a hint of spice added to the sweetest of the previous kiss.
Hello All! Today’s 6 is very special! I needed help drawing the line on how much description is too much when it comes to sex between teenagers in fiction. The responses to: Sex in YA. Thoughts? helped me conclude to go with the sensuous: the thoughts and feelings before intercourse, but skip describing the act of intercourse. We’re calling it the, “fade to black” approach. Thanks everyone who gave their input and feedback! Hopefully, I nailed it.
It’s an experiment! I spend Tuesday – Saturday writing a new episode of Enough for Four.

Writers, feel free to post your own 6 sentences in the comments below or a link to them. I look forward to reading them!
