Adventures in Writing: Time Moves Fast

Where Did It All Go? It seems like time is just flying by. Sometimes, I wonder if the super massive black hole at the center of our galaxy is sucking in the time that I feel I’m missing. I want to move a little closer to it, just a smidge mind you, so that time …

Adventures in Writing: Late Night Retweet Group

Dear Erotica Authors on Radish, I’d like to introduce you to a new and exciting retweet group. I know, another set of letters you have to hashtag. It’s a chore. But, I promise, worth your time. Due to various reasons (beyond our control), very few Late Night (Erotica) stories make it to the home page …

This post comes to you today due to my Twitter Tribe – so many amazing people coming together to support and bolster each other in times of need. Today, we have challenged ourselves to a homework assignment. I’m mostly writing a post so that all the details are in one place (for me, because I’m …

Adventures in Writing: Negative Influences

So, I sort of missed Masturbation Monday this week, but that’s okay! It’s been stressful because I’m doing two jobs, sometimes three, at once and something had to give.  Since I am going through an extra busy week, I thought I would chat about negative influences and how to use them in a positive way …

Adventures in Writing: Sisters in Smut

Twitter Tribe and Sisters in Smut If you follow me on Twitter along with my Twitter Tribe (you really should, we’re a party in your pants), there’s always one of us saying (probably me) “I need that on a t-shirt!”. I created a little something for the Sisters in Smut and I’m actually considering a …

Adventures in Writing: Being a Good Influence

This post is a little… okay, a lot emotional. This is post two in my “Being a Good Author Friend” series. Stay Tuned, there’s always more. I recommend tissues if you watch This is Water. I highly recommend watching This is Water. Everyone is influenced by someone or something happening around them. While I attribute …

Adventures in Writing: Being a Good Author Friend

I want all authors to take a deep breath. And then let it out. Take another and let it out. One more time, breathe with me.   I feel it’s been very difficult for some authors out there to be good author friends. Or, perhaps they are only good author friends to authors who fit …

Adventures in Writing: Day Job Writing

If you’re new to this ‘writing thing’ and have a day job to pay your bills, you probably have no idea how to get in a little writing time when you’re supposed to be working.  Disclaimer: No Slacking  I am not giving you permission to slack off at work. If you have projects to do …

Adventures in Writing: Social Interaction

Today, let’s talk about social media and interacting with others. First off, pick your platform. If you love Facebook, then focus on that one. If you love Twitter, then make that your main squeeze. I tend to be a Twitter focus-type. While I do post to Facebook, it’s most often an auto-post via my WordPress. …

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 …

Adventures in Writing: Winding Path

Writing isn’t easy. It’s hard. It was never meant to be easy. My writing history has been a winding path. Sometimes, I barrel off that path into the unknown, machete waving back and forth trying to forge my own way. And that’s how it should be. We should all find our own way of doing …

Adventures in Writing: Unraveled

Writing a story is like unraveling a skein of yarn. I crochet and I am one of those people who doesn’t make balls of yarn – I just pull from the skein. If you do this right, you’re in for a smooth ride. However, there’s always that one skein that is full of bunches of …

Adventures in Writing: Finish What You Start

There’s a rule you need to follow when you’re any creative type and that’s to finish what you’ve started. Sometimes, that rule needs to be broken. The only time I break this rule is if something just isn’t working. The story doesn’t flow or something else isn’t working. I put it aside to either try …

Adventures in Writing: Social Media Abusers

Are you an abuser of Social Media? Here’s how to tell… Death to the Auto DM  I get that authors are supposed to be writing non-stop like a bullet train speeding to the next stop at… well the speed of a bullet. On top of that, they might have a day job, kids or parents …
