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 …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Seasonal Blahs

I almost started ranting about things that didn’t belong in this post, but I wrangled my inner demon (to release her another day) and got back on track! Well, it’s that time of year again, you know what I mean if you live in a place where the seasons change regularly. And even if you …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Safe, Sane, and Consensual

First, I want you to take a moment and follow Professor Sex on Twitter. October is National Kink Month and she’s doing lots of education tweets about the Kinky Life. It seems to be inevitable. Each time I mention ‘safeword’ on Twitter, someone has to reply that their safeword is basically something that’s just there. …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Sex and Sunshine

When it comes to sex, even today, we are having to fight to bring it out of the darkness. Schools teach – if anything at all – abstinence and disease and the mechanics. They don’t bother to teach you about consent – because you shouldn’t be having sex anyway, right? Growing up, we didn’t talk …

Plumey” when you see her pop up on Twitter.  Welcome to another episode of “Super Heroes of Smut”! This week, I have the red-headed ball of awesome known …

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 …

Reviewed: Consensually Speaking with Gio

Okay, first, let me say why I’m writing a review here on the blog. I dislike Apple and I will never ever download iTunes again. The only time I downloaded it was the best reason ever – The Librarians pilot episode had extended scenes and the first one was free. I couldn’t say no.  On …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Reviewing Books

I know I don’t write the best reviews when it comes to reviewing period, but there are some things I look for specifically when I read them. Here’s a rundown! I will actually start with the lowest ratings. I want to know what annoyed readers about a book. Is there a specific reason they didn’t …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Sharing from Your Kindle

We’re all very busy people! Who has time to write reviews? (Please keep writing reviews, I’m being a wee bit sarcastic here!) There’s a feature I stumbled upon accidentally when I highlighted some text. I knew about highlighting previously – for like reference and to copy and search, or maybe get a definition for a …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Bound, Gagged, and Stuffed into a Trunk

Last week, I was invited to Skype into Dr. J.’s writer group. The ferocity of our combined energy caused funnel clouds to appear in my area, but hell, what fun it was! Last week the talented Dr. J. invited me to Skype into her writers group get together. You have no idea how excited I …

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 …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Peek Behind the Curtains

Actually, only the bedroom curtains and blinds are closed, but the other curtains are all wide open. You’d have to walk halfway into my yard to see inside and yes, I’d see you coming. I’ve been wracking my brain for something to share all week long. It has been one crazy day after another. I …

Technical Blather: Calling All Google Geeks

I can’t take it anymore, I want my Google Chrome back. Please save my sanity (what little I have left). I haven’t been able to use my Google Chrome on my new laptop for way too long now and it’s driving me mad. I can use it on the old laptop, I can use it …
