Ramblings of a Late Night Junkie
As an erotic romance author, my muse is a night owl. And no wonder! She’s channeling the energy of a world of late-night lovemaking acts. One trick I’ve learned as a writer, though, is to draw inspiration from everything, and that includes conversations with friends, scenery, news events, and that’s right—TV. After all, I have 800 channels at my fingertips. Anything from porn—last night’s feature was Oiled Asses 7—to cooking shows, I glean inspiration from them all.
Last night boasted a particularly bad selection, however. I typically settle in with my old flicks on the AMC channel, but last night there wasn’t a Clark Gable in sight. So I ended up watching infomercials about a revolutionary new workout system! You can lose up to six inches in two weeks! And all you have to do is bust your ass for ten minutes a day, folks! *sigh*
Then I flipped to The Crucible, starring Daniel Day Lewis and Winona Ryder, that strange movie that to me is like a train wreck with a nap—you want to watch it because the characters are so tormented, and yet it’s a total snoozefest (although Daniel Day Lewis can be my leading actor any time). *again sigh*
So off to the BBC I went, hoping for Graham Norton and his crazyass antics, but instead I got an old episode of Doctor Who. In this one, they battled to get their double-decker bus out of a desert, where it was completely bogged in the sand, and then they flew the fucker through some sort of time warp where flying sting rays attacked it. I was bouncing on the edge of my seat! Now this is stuff books are made of! Adventure, peril, even a sweet kiss was shared, all wrapped up with the sci-fi elements that get my juices flowing.
After my muse glutted herself on trippy storylines and thoroughly oogled David Tennant, I fell asleep. Although I’ve watched Doctor Who before, no episode really spoke to me like this one, and you’d better bet your ass I’ll be back for more.
What inspires you, and what do you watch late at night? I’d love to hear from you. One lucky commenter will win a copy of my latest release TATTOO DREAM. Don’t forget to leave your email address too, so I can get your prize to you. Thanks for reading!
