I have just finished another scene in the book - while sitting outside in one of the uni's gardens. This was a wonderful place to sit - trees, flowers, lawns, sun, even a string quartet practising in one of the rooms that faced onto the garden!
So there I sat, writing about how I was going to survive the Zombie Apocalypse, trying to lead a group of youngsters to safety. That scene ended with us hiking up a road, foraging for weapons as we went....
Next scene - hm, this is where I have to make a big decision. There is a couple having a "romantic encounter" in one of the hotel rooms. They have no idea what is going on outside. The big question is:
How to deal with this couple?
How much detail do I go into? Do I go for subtle suggestion or blatant p0rn? "Shades of Grey with Zombies"? Somewhere in between? My instinct is to be subtle and let the reader's imagination fill in the gaps according to their own tastes. What do you think?
