Desire

It can take many shapes and forms and affect you in different ways. Lately I have a burning desire to do something crazy. To experience for one brief moment that euphoric feeling that comes with the heady sense of doing something you shouldn't. But I reign it in and channel it in other directions. Harnessing some call it. Yes, desire is many things to many people. Lately I am trying to live vicariously through the characters I create, to plunge into a world of passion, danger and carnal sex. As a newly divorced woman that is the closest I'm getting right now. LOL But it works for me. It is the escape that I need. Those breathless moments when I am riding a horse in the desert with a sheik on my trail, or chasing bad guys with a strong, sexy cop that is determined to make me his. Isn't that what we all want? Isn't that why we read and write as we do? For the sheer joy of those few moments spent as someone else.
My grandmother once told me as a rambunctious child that the greatest adventure I might ever take could be as close as opening the cover of a book. She was absolutely right. I've rarely been to any place exotic except in the stories that I read and most of my history has come from the stories that brought it to life for me. I only hope that there are those that can read one of my books and find those stolen moments as they become one of my characters. To me that is the mark of a fantastic author.
So what do you desire?

A waterfall, a non-steamy jungle, Tarzan and a steamy sex scene. That is what I desire. Oh, and some chocolate.

That all sounds good Charlene.

Your grandmother sounds like a wise woman. That's my desire, to become a wise woman, too. :)
