Adventures in Writing: Mind of a Smut Writer

Have you heard the song by Korn called ADIDAS? If not, feel free to check it out at the end of this post, it’s pretty fucking good.


I have to be completely honest here… I don’t think about sex all day. I do get ideas at random times from random comments I hear. Sometimes if I see a hot person my insides get all gooey. I do have a switch for my dirty mind and a filter for my naughty mouth. More often than not, I try to behave myself while at work. Either way, I’m Trouble – yes with a capital T.

What really cracks me up is when I’m trying to have a real conversation and those around me are making everything dirty. Yes, they know what I write, so everything I say ends up being considered dirty in some way. I’ve had people make something I would never have thought to make dirty absolutely filthy.

However, that’s the fun part of being a smut writer – you don’t have to do all the work yourself because the people who know you write smut and find it amusing or confusing will lighten the load. The Punished by the Boss story ideas came on their own, however, the original idea for the larger story (or series) that it will become happened quite a while before it. All because someone said something – not even to me, but in conversation – while walking by.

I’ve had people say to me all the dirty things they want to do… and usually I smile, or laugh, and make my own comment back. A lot of times it falls flat to me, but sometimes there’s a nugget of gold in all that foolish dirt.

Then there are the days I’m wandering around work because someone, I won’t say names (ELIZA) retweets a photo and tags me, along with others, and I’m dying of laughter – which of course means I have to show it to others. All but one person got the pun, some it took a few moments, another I had to tell them to turn on their dirty switch. That always makes me laugh, too.

(Okay, so I will say names and point fingers and link to their twitter profile so you follow them.)

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, sure, there are days that I’m daydreaming of sex, but for the most part, I’m just waiting to get home and put all the naughty words on the page that I had to ignore. Every writer gets ideas from those around them. Authors are people-watchers. Creatives can use anything that happens as inspiration for something amazing. Tap into that. Find the creative in you and get to work.


Make sure you stop by tomorrow to read my birthday story for F dot Leonora!
