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: 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 …

Adventures in Writing: Wasted Weekend

Yep, you read the title correctly, I wasted the weekend. So, if I wasn’t writing this weekend, what did I do? Well, I did get some things done. I can see most of the kitchen again. I actually hung my clothes up after they finished in the dryer, while I was still in the freezing …

Adventures in Writing: Word Wall

In case you were unsure, I’m a writer. And, in case you are not a writer (or have never been around a writer), writing is hard. It’s recently come to my attention that I have a lot of content. Well, when I’m writing Sizzling Nibbles, Masturbation Monday, have Sharing is Caring, Between the Stories, Excerpts, and …

Adventures in Writing: Ghosts of Pen Names Past

Where have you gone, oh author extraordinaire? There are many people out there who write. They write in secret, honing their craft. They use pen names that have no connection to themselves whatsoever. Some of them are absolutely random, just names picked out of a hat or from a baby name website. I’m sure there …

Adventures in Writing: The Closing of WriteOn

Another excellent concept down the drain… I received an email last week that WriteOn, an online “workshop” of sorts for writers created by Amazon is closing down. Authors were able to go there, post what they were writing and hope for feedback from readers. It’s basically a prettified version of WattPad, where lots of people …

Adventures in Writing: Pornography vs. Erotica

Pornography vs. Erotica – an erotica author’s thoughts More often than not, people will tell you that all erotica is pornography. That there isn’t a definitive difference between the two. It’s black and white. Not true, though. It’s more than black and white; and it’s more than shades of gray. Yes, I purposefully spelled gray …
