I hadn't written in quite a long time until I stumbled across this site a few months ago. (My story was, and continues to be, that I was doing some research on drunken novelists. THANK YOU, Nicola, for the plausible deniability.) I read a couple of the stories on the front page and then decided to click on a few of the Editors' Picks. I found them... stimulating. So much so that I found myself coming back here for more "research". I quickly decided to join the fun and post a story. It was a great decision. I can't say why it is that erotica gets my creative juices flowing like no other genre but I've decided to just run with it. I'm an amateur, of course, but I enjoy trying to improve my skills. It's really great to have a place to post my work and receive some feedback. Several authors and mods have been very welcoming and supportive. I've tried to honor that tradition by encouraging the talented writers I have had the pleasure to read. I welcome all correspondence that comes my way. I've met a few extremely creative, funny people in my short time here and I look forward to perhaps one day meeting you.
Great summary and nicely done. Too bad Dylan didn't have something like this when he wrote Lay Lady Lay. On second thought, maybe it's best that he didn't... Lie Lady Lie?Since "lay" requires a direct object, you can remember the present tense distinction with the phrase, "Lay it on me" - "it" being the object. "Lie" cannot have a direct object. That's the real distinction - transitive (lay) vs. intransitive (lie) verbs.The past tense and the participles are where things get really hairy. When my head starts to hurt I start thinking that maybe I actually TOSSED that friggin' dildo on the bed.
al·right Show IPA adverb all right. Can be confused: all right, alright (see usage note at the current entry). Usage note The form alright as a one-word spelling of the phrase all right in all of its senses probably arose by analogy with such words as already and altogether. Although alright is a common spelling in written dialogue and in other types of informal writing, all right is used in more formal, edited writing.

Jesus Christ, it's "Oh God."
To the judges, thank you so very much. I'm truly humbled. And, okay, I'll admit that it feels great. Wow. I'm floored.Congratulations to Kim and Annie for their excellent entries and to all the other top ten finishers! I agree that there was some really fine work on display. Everybody really seemed to go after it. There were a couple of stories I loved that weren't recognized which I suppose just goes to show how strong the field was. I have to say the theme had me scratching my head. Check that. Banging my head... against the table. (Who the fuck was responsible for that?!) Thank God I had the good sense not to go with a ritual sex story because Annie and Kim had that flat out nailed. Holy crap, they were good. I'm very much looking forward to being driven out of my mind by the next competition theme. Thank you again!Gerry
Skin flushed, tingling, he's naked, exposed. She watches his erection steadily rise.
The acolytes removed her clothes and spread her legs. The door opened.
One dog... a North American Brainless. She's extremely dimwitted. Even for a dog. Just stares at you; never says a godamn word.
: females ain't just men with tits and pussys. Wait. WHAT? Oh, shit!

Congratulations to all the winners. Well done. These stories were well conceived and executed. I thought the level of competition was outstanding overall. I'm looking forward to the next one!
Residing between an abandoned amusement park and a seedy strip club, the Parkside Motor Lodge and Cocktail Lounge did its best to distance itself socially from its neighbors. Turquoise script displayed its name in flickering neon while letters that glowed in icy blue and blushing pink promised that every guest would enjoy refrigerated air and the convenience of in-room adult movies. Time...

A mottled carpet of leaves flew off the blacktop in the rear view mirror and then fluttered back to earth like butterflies descending on a field of sage. Just another hour, he thought. Brady turned his baseball cap around and depressed his right foot, the force of acceleration driving him deeper into his seat. With a push of a button, fresh air rushed into the cabin to the hum of a sliding...

Griff crouched low on the balls of his feet and rocked side to side. A single, clear bead rolled off his chin and darkened the scuffed, brick-red surface between his shoes. He looked up. With a loud pop, a ball spun quickly in his direction and dove sharply toward the ground in front of him. One jab step and an upward swing of his powerful left arm caught the fuzzy sphere at the height of...

Gideon tried to walk the straight and narrow path. He rose early for work each morning when there was work to be had. He did his best to busy himself with those things that decent people do. It’s not that trouble had never found Gideon. It had. In fact, trouble had been a constant if mostly unwelcome companion for nearly all his twenty seven years. He had designedly sought it out in...

Hope crossed her arms tightly across her chest and stared out the conference room window. It was barely nine in the morning and the day was already shit. Sheets of rain pounded the thick glass loudly and the swirling storm clouds reflected her black mood. A gentle shiver vibrated through her body. She never seemed to feel completely dry when she was in Seattle. She never felt warm. Fifty...

“Well, it’s over.” Roger Jones tossed his keys on the table near the door. “She doesn’t want to have anything to do with me anymore.” Roger slouched his way into the living room, hands in the pockets of his chinos. His roommate sat on the couch wearing a grey sweatshirt and a pair of plaid boxer shorts. “Sheila? Now there’s a shocker,” said Dennis between slurps of breakfast cereal. ...

Fitz lay crossways on the bed, arms extended upward with a magazine in his hands. Too tired to read, he flipped through pages of advertisements and looked at pictures of refugees. It had been a tough week. Shit, it had been a tough year, he thought. Fucking clients, fucking auditors, fucking pissant bureaucrats… At least having a couple of beers with friends tonight had relaxed him. Becca...

Thomas Flynn dropped his backpack and looked around as he walked into the third floor walkup. The sleeves of his flannel shirt were rolled halfway up his forearms and its tail draped over the seat of his jeans. “So this is your grandma’s place?” He heard a scuffle behind him and turned in time to catch a flying teenage girl in his arms. She wrapped her legs around his waist as she...

I’ve never spoken to anyone about what happened that summer, the summer in Italy . Not Cathy, my closest friend. Certainly not my family, although I tried so, so many times to find the courage to tell my sister, thinking, hoping she might understand. But she wouldn’t. My husband? No. It would kill him. It would be the end of us. Not even him. My brother… there, I said it. My brother. God,...

Matthew F. X. Fitzgerald’s morning erection hovered over the sink as he leaned against the vanity. A pair of brown eyes stared blankly back at him from the mirror. Blink. He popped the toothbrush into the brass holder and wandered down the hallway, trying to tuck his stiff joint back into the fly of his pajamas. Damn annoyance, he thought, a waste of good wood. He wondered what his wife...
