|Sexual Tension: When you are dying for the couple to |
have their first kiss!
which will be held in Calgary on August 9th, and having so much fun with the topic!
My part of the ARWA sponsored workshop looks at story structure and more of the "big picture" end of things, and Sarah Kades, who is teaching the workshop with me, will be addressing the detail-oriented aspects of writing sexual tension. The workshop will be held August 9th from 9 am to noon. It is only $10 and you don't have to be signed up for the When Words Collide conference to attend our workshop! (Although you should sign up for the conference too, because it'll be great!)
As I work through my presentation, I keep thinking about couples from television shows.
Which couple do you think has (or had) the best sexual tension? Here are a few couples I came up with, in no particular order:
- Maddie and David (Moonlighting)
- Ross and Rachel (Friends)
- Tony and Ziva (NCIS)
- Castle and Beckett (Castle)
- House and Cuddy (House)
- Booth and Bones (Bones)
- Daphne and Niles (Frasier)
- Mulder and Scully (X-Files)
- Remington Steele and Laura Holt (Remington Steele)
- Sam and Diane (Cheers)
- Luke and Lorelai (Gilmore Girls)
- Detective Murdoch and Doctor Ogden (Murdoch Mysteries)
My favorite is probably... oh, hell, I don't know. I was aching for each of those couples to have their first touch, their first kiss...
