Amateur porn writer. The situations you find in my stories may be unlikely at best, but isn't that what sexual fantasy is all about? I reject your reality and substitute my own.I also write as Darkniciad and Les Lumens. As Dark, my stories are mostly set in a fantasy world of magic. As Les, my stories have a wide range from humor to horror and everything between.Some timeline information about my fantasy world stories ( which I'll update as I add new ones )Merchant Princess, Casting Off Convention, and Lowborn are history tales, taking place at approximately the same time. Queen of the Isle happens shortly after those.The stories then jump forward in time. The order of those is King Thakkorias, Blackhawk Hall, Queen Alicia, and then Missionary Impossible.To make things a little easier with my Magic of the Wood series, I'll keep a chronological list of those here as well.Steward of the Wood, Daughter of the Wood, Forever of the Wood, Secret of the Wood, Kindred of the Wood, Heart of the Wood, Beauty of the Wood, Friend of the Wood

The change to the first post makes this sensible. For me, the bare minimum of finishing a story is to have someone else read it and make sure the multiple passes of self-editing haven't missed anything. That's what my primary editor does for me. He catches one or two little things every time.I'm assuming that's what "Light editing" means.I don't know where my more intensive process I used for my Magic of the Wood series and a couple of other stories here and there would fall. Sandwiched in the middle between my self-editing and my main editor, all of those had an impression reader. Her only job was to point out "huh?" moments in the story, ignoring grammar.The type of commentary coming back would be things of this nature:"This is a personal observation here. They were touching a squirrel. Now they’re touching food they’re going to eat? And not washing their hands first? That’s gross even if it is fiction."(Why or how is it obvious? You haven’t given the reader anything to know that yet. That comes next but it isn’t obvious here.)(Saying the walk ended in the bedroom gives it a different implication than what you’re meaning here.)I have done extensive editing such as adding new scenes, dropping scenes, dropping peripheral characters and such based on those type of questions, but most of them simply involved a bit of rewording or pulling a bottle of hand sanitizer from someone's purse.Not sure where that would fall, although it would be pretty much irrelevant to the competitions here, because the shortest story I've ever added that extra step to was 13k words or so.
Find a plugin for your forum software that checks against stopforumspam. For small sites, it's a godsend that will weed out the bulk of spammer sign-ups.My site is a little hole in the wall that's mostly me talking to myself, but the plugin has blocked over 4700 registrations this year — more than double last year. Which was more than double the year before. That's not even counting the registrations blocked by another plugin, those who never validate their email, those I catch because I have the time to check out every sign-up that makes it through, etc. 3000? Eek! I'm getting 2-4 fakes a day at the board I admin and we're worrying about it. But 3000? We'd probably have to shut down. Our active membership is under 100.
I always drop that warning whenever camming comes up. I've seen so many models screw their lives up because they try to depend upon it to make a living that I feel the need to say it.It's not really competition with free porn. There was plenty of that back when camming got off the ground. The people who go to live chat are going there for interaction, and that hasn't changed. That's especially true of the people who open their wallets.The problem of too many sites isn't just the enormity of the landscape spreading out the chatters, either. Models often get frustrated with low to no return on their time and end up switching sites. Their biggest fans ( who are in the know ) will follow them, and everybody else is left out in the cold. You end up with a situation where few chatters have any site loyalty, and thus you're not only competing with every model on the site where you are, but also the other half a dozen sites that chatters have in their bookmarks because of migrating models.Even if you do find a good site, it seems to be inevitable nowadays that the site will go under in six months, forcing you to go hunting for a new home again.Making anything nowadays is dependant upon spending almost as much time on social media as you do on cam.Anyway, I know jack-all about non-nude sites. I've honestly never seen one. Just thought I'd drop some ideas about the current lay of the land, considering you said you haven't been on cam for a few years.
If you were modeling in the beginning ( as in, the late 90's, early 2000s ) then the primary thing you need to know, regardless of the site, is that the money just isn't there the way it was back in those days.It should never be something you depend upon for even a tiny fraction of your necessary income, but that's far more true nowadays than it was back then. If you're not in it primarily for your own entertainment as an exhibitionist, then you're honestly setting yourself up for a fall.There are too many sites and too many models. Even if you're the most engaging model on the site ( which is far more important than mere looks ) it's still difficult for people to discover you amidst all the barbie dolls with chatbot personalities and girls streaming out of studios in the former Soviet Bloc nations.You're not going to have anything resembling steady income. Certainly not anything that could remotely finance even minor cosmetic procedures. The days of making $600 to $1000 a week after taxes have been gone for a long, long time — and that's full nude. I can't imagine non-nude camming has even a fraction of that potential without being tied to some sort of shady escort situation.Do it because you enjoy it, or don't do it at all. If the money is a factor, just say away from the biz. You'll most likely do nothing more than make your situation worse.
To give a Lush specific example, the wait for a story to be approved is the queue to me.On the computer is a queue. Everything else is a line.Any other UK English I use can be blamed on Monty Python. Americans say 'back of the line'. Now if you're on the computer and it's documents waiting to print we'd say 'queue'. But not in reference to people or actual objects.
Here you go. Tracked down the URL for the second story and put it in there. Remember, NO spaces, even if it looks like it in this code. Starting each new tag immediately after ending the previous one is how you prevent a gap between the images.If, on the other hand, you want a little whitespace between them, just add a single space after the first /url tag. If you want them one above the other ( which I doubt ) then you put a single carriage return after the first /url tag.BBcode processes taps of the enter key and drops whatever follows to the next line. https://upload.lushstories.com/1589322149-RustyTromboneForum.jpg https://upload.lushstories.com/1713693623-CurseOfTheJoshuaTree.jpg https://upload.lushstories.com/1589322149-RustyTromboneForum.jpg https://upload.lushstories.com/1713693623-CurseOfTheJoshuaTree.jpg
I wasn't aware that italics would paste in anyway. It's never worked for me. I've had to add those back in after pasting on every submission. I get that same formatting problem when I copy and paste my text from Mac Pages into the text submission box. Yes, the extra line space, along with some other spacing/format issues. The solution is to copy your text and paste into a 'private message' here on Lush to yourself. Then copy the text from your received pm and paste that into the text submission box. The only problem is that you lose your italics or bolds. But it is a lot easier to reapply any italics and bolds rather than have to fix all those spacing issues.

Just to be clear, I'm not complaining. I've been self-policing, and not even putting things in the queue that I couldn't break down into parts below the limit - few though they are.Considering what's come up, I'm going to skip posting this one, rather than potentially becoming a "Yeah, but..." example for someone else who might want to complain.If you want to erase this thread for fear it might encourage people to push the wordcount boundary, do so with my blessing. I know you don't need it, but you have it anyway.
Sitting under the awning next to her truck, Vanille looked down the street and decided that the fair was beginning to wind down. She breathed a sigh of relief both because the long day was over, and because she was going to turn a decent profit from working the small town street fair. Considering her name, she might very well have been destined to sell homemade ice cream from the back of...

Ryan grabbed a towel, having just finished a quick shower. With their son off at his parents’ house for a few days, he knew what his wife’s suggestion to take a shower right after dinner meant. They were both a couple of days overdue for some alone time, and breaking that fast always resulted in mind-blowing sex. He toweled off, gave his hair a cursory blow dry, and pulled on a pair of boxers...

Jeremy nearly blew beer out his nose when Brad cracked an unexpected joke. He swallowed and sputtered a few times, but managed to avoid an embarrassing display. His friends were all laughing too hard to notice. It was nice to go to a party and have fun again – something he hadn’t really done since Nancy had dumped him just before graduation the year before. College had been enough of...

I was already standing by the door when the bell rang. The fantasy that had been floating around in my head for two months was finally coming true. I was excited – even a little nervous – as I reached for the doorknob. She smiled when I opened the door, making an already beautiful face framed by blonde curtains all the more stunning. The rest of her was just as wonderful. The low-cut white...

Brett handed over his ten bucks, even though he could think of a thousand things that would have been a better use for the money. He’d agreed to join the team for the scavenger hunt, but held no illusions about winning the pot. From what he’d heard, there were usually so many teams competing that the odds were slim. Mike returned a few minutes later with the official master list and...

Denise glanced down at Rodney’s hand, and then lifted her eyebrows. Snapping out of the momentary trance, he reached out and added his other hand to the first, tugging upward on her top. She raised her arms when the material reached the bottom of her lacy pink bra. As her top slid over her head, Denise took over and absently tossed it off to the side. The bra was sheer, leaving little of...

Rodney pulled up in front of the dorm, his stomach doing flip-flops. Jill had carefully selected his rental car, leaning toward the higher end without crossing the line to a sports car or luxury model. His outfit had likewise been chosen to edge toward the popular styles without contrasting too much with his normal, comfortable mode of dress. Despite Jill and Watch both giving him seals...

Rodney started awake, shaking his head and blinking against the light streaming in the window. After a few seconds, the sleep fog began to lift from his head, and he realized that the light was out of place. He wasn’t in his basement room at home. Memories returned as his eyes adjusted, and a smile spread across his face. Jill completed a long, broad-tongued lap of his erection. When she...

The door opening finally snapped him out of the online world where he was King for at least a day. He turned around to see Jill carrying the suitcase that housed the lights and cameras. “Give me a hand with this? I never knew it was so heavy.” Springing from the chair, he said, “Sure. Where’s Watch?” Jill sat down the suitcase and sighed in relief. “He’s playing with Gina. I told you...

Rodney stood at the top of the stairs, listening for hints that anyone was still awake in the house. After a few minutes, he was sure that his parents and sister were all out for the count. He closed the basement door, locked it, and crept down the stairs, his heart beating fast and his cock already throbbing. Wasting no time, he headed to his computer and navigated to the cam site,...
