A Monday afternoon & fantasies coming true…kind of…

In my first post I mentioned how part of the inspiration for Sunset Desires came from laying out at the pool... Here's what that afternoon entailed...
    One Monday afternoon in the summer, I went down to my development’s pool to enjoy the 80+ degree temps (a change from the 100+ degree temps we normally have here in Las Vegas), the water (enjoyed the water after I got over the initial shock of how brisk it was), the blue skies, palm trees, smell of sun tan lotion. There was a real nice older couple who came in. They were great to talk to and were having such a fun time that soon the three of us were laughing. After some laps, I took some time to work on outlining a hot scene for a story I was working on (which eventually became Sunset Desires) while jammin’ to Duran Duran and The Killers. And, as I was writing—longhand btw since I didn’t take my laptop—one of my fantasies started playing out.
    Kind of.
    Pool side, sunning, writing and along comes the pool boy.
    This is where the ‘kind of’ part comes in.
    For one, I’m not the hot cougar I imagine myself to be. Give me some time & I plan to get there.
    Two, it wasn’t my private pool at my own house.
    Three, the guy was covered in clothes and a hat and had sunglasses on so I couldn’t get a good look at him.
    Oh well.
    But I’m a writer, I can spin it. ;) Maybe one of these days I'll do a story around this day at the pool.
    And another perk of the day…it didn’t take me a frickin’ hour to get the knots out of my long hair once I got home!
    Since another part of the inspiration for Sunset Desires came from visiting Grand Cayman, here's a pick from the pub we went to & the basis for where my hero and heroine meet up.

Don't forget, I'm doing a giveaway this weekend and for deets please visit my blog: C.R. Moss blog.

I love beach places like that--that look like shacks but end up being where all the locals go for great grub and beer (or exotic beach drinks). It's a dreary day here but I have a hankering for a beach run.
