Topic Word 2013 and Win 8
Posted 13 Apr 2014 11:39

My last turned into a major headache. Copy and paste from Word 2013 got royally mangled. Spaces removed in some spots, and spaces added between the quotation marks and the quoted text. Ended up saving the Word file to plain text and copying and pasting from Notepad.

Topic What is your favorite story category in Lush
Posted 11 Apr 2014 11:25

Yeah, I could list a whole whack of them, really. Easier to list the ones I avoid: BDSM and Incest are the two biggies though there are exceptions. Fetish would be in there, too, I guess.

Topic how do you write in 3rd person?
Posted 11 Apr 2014 10:28

You know, I don't even think about it. For erotica, I generally write first person (since I'm often riffing off my own fantasies) but I have written third as well. For me, it's just adjusting my imagination to be a viewer of the scene rather than an actor in it. Not sure if that helps, but that's basically how I handle it mentally.

Topic Where do you get your stories from?
Posted 11 Apr 2014 10:24

On question 1, I'd say it comes from my fantasies and desires, mostly the unmet ones. None of them are really "real life" though some may contain bits of things from life (e.g. the escort in His Secret; Her New Passion is based on my experiences with some professional ladies). I have a fantasy that I'd like to explore, then I build the story to explore it.

On your second question, I'd say it depends on the story. Looking at my last two, Sweet Tasty Treats was probably done in two days. Once the comp it was written for was announced, I started looking for an idea and then ran with the one that came to me. The Professor was done gradually over a couple weeks as I worked through the relationship and what kind of sex I wanted them to have. Then another week to stew while I proofed and edited to get it up to my standard (and hopefully Lush's). I have stories still sitting unfinished from a year ago but that's another issue. In terms of ones I finish, the average is probably around a week to write and 3-5 days to lie fallow before a final proof and edit. Keep in mind, though, that these stories are fairly short (I have yet to confront the 10,000 word limit) and I work fulltime and have a family so I'm not exactly dripping with time for writing. If I start getting more time available and tackling longer material, that could change significantly.

Like Raven_Star, I'm an amateur as a writer. Even before becoming a mod, I appreciated what the mods do here. Having someone unknown and unrelated to me vet my work is a real boon to me as a writer and a real boost when it gets published.

I am also an avid reader. Differences in tense can, and do, make a story inconsistent and difficult to follow unless they are framed as flashbacks. Same with grammar. Nothing yanks me out of an enjoyable story faster than a grammar or tense screw-up. I want to lose myself in the story, not be trying to figure out what is being said. That's why the standard needs to be there. We want readers to be able to enjoy reading Lush stories, not be getting put off because a paragraph halfway through does not make sense.

I have not read your work, but from what my colleague above me says, it sounds like you're really not doing too badly. Keep it up and try to learn from the mod comments. It can only help you get better!

Topic REINCARNATION: WHO/WHAT and WHY
Posted 10 Apr 2014 13:29

I'd come back as an astronaut. Or maybe as an artificially intelligent space probe. Something that will allow me to get out and explore space, a longtime interest of mine.

Not often enough. Maybe 3 or so times a week but could do more.

Do you use toys or other aids when you masturbate or are hands enough?

Smooch and screw. Rinse and repeat.

I skip around a lot. Straight, hot sex is probably what I mainly look for, but I also enjoy gay stories, esp. first time (since I'm bi-curious)

Do you masturbate while reading Lush stories or just read them for inspiration?
