Unintentional intentionality and post-juvenilia expressed (proudly)

I love how things just come out when you're writing. Tonight, while writing a scene in which my main character is trying to convince a friend to take care of his psychotic cat while he's away, he feels her resistance begin to break down... and then he says:

My hands are in her crack now, pulling in opposite directions.

Okay, the sexual deviance in there was REALLY, TOTALLY, UNAMBIGUOUSLY unintended. I was simply trying to say that he felt her resolve weakening and he was working at changing her mind. Which, I think is there, buried beneath a mound (pile?) of innuendo. Which is why it has to stay. At least for now.

Heh.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
