Topic: Popular US baby & character names
Posted: 18 Jun 2017 22:16

There's 4000 boys named Kylo? From Star Wars? The kid who kills his father and turns to the dark side?

Interestingly, the guy with the most popular name is famous for a boat trip, but he also cursed one branch of his grandchildren into eternal slavery because they covered up his twig and berries while he was passed out drunk.

Topic: Losing your way in writting erotic,how to gain your writers mojo back.
Posted: 16 Jun 2017 01:27

Okay all you Lushes out there that read this,here is my problem.lol Note:I hope I'm posting this in the right sections of the forum.

Okay I been feeling for a long while now that I have been losing my mojo in writing.It's like I'm not satisfied with what I write when i try do my rough drafts,yes i admit I have went through a lot of paper. <img src="/images/emoticons/eusa_doh.gif" alt="d&#39;oh!">

Now for one I will say I do come up with some amazing ideas,I might start writing a little then end up putting it away for another day.I would take breaks from writing and come back,but writer still nothing sometimes I wanna know Lush people have any of you ever had moments when you just lost your writing mojo.

If so how did you gain it back,I mean I do have experience writing,my 1st story on Lush, I think I wrote when I was 18 or 19,I'm 23 now.Please if any of you can give me some advice,or tips on how you got your inspiration back,it will be surely appreciated.Thank you all. <img src="/images/emoticons/read2.gif" alt="read2">

I've written under a couple of different names for over five years, mostly on another site. Here are roughly the stages as I see it.

Stage 1 - Many ideas. A fair amount of completely unwarranted confidence. Pump out stories. Some crash in burn because they needed editing. Others because it's just not that good, but if one has talent, then one "pops" in popularity.

Stage 2 - Mimic the story that "popped". Not necessarily rewriting the plot, but mimicking the style and pacing. This slows an author down.

Stage 3 - Hey, why am I mimicking my own style? What have other "successful" authors written.

Stage 3.5 - Oh shit, this stuff is really good.

Stage 4 - Mimic the really popular stuff in style and pacing. (Subnote - I hope you like writing first person female stories Mr. Middle Aged Man)

Stage 4.5 - Damn, people really like lesbo stories. But I really like my (insert semi-popular fetish here).

Stage 5 - I'm out of ideas, and my best ideas were written like shit years ago, but I could probably do a good job with them if I had a time machine!

I'd guess most people who do this as a hobby who aren't "gifted" writers, find editing mistakes and redrafting to be hell on earth and it's discouraging. That would be me. I know I can write a "popular" story and generate enough lightening to bottle if I really think on it and write write write, but most of what I write is garbage. I like to think I'm smart enough now to not post my garbage no matter how long I worked on it. That's why I only have a story or two a year now, and these are not particularly long stories.

I think almost all writers come to dead ends in quality work that are near impossible to fix. Somebody famous said writing a good ending is the hard part. For me it's writing a good 2nd act in a 2 act short story.

Topic: Story line - Sex ratio??
Posted: 06 Oct 2016 09:57

I don't think you can use ratios to kit together a great erotic story. Stories are art. The story should move the plot forward. Some of the best erotic stories I have ever read have had teasing and half measures for the first 80% before the sex at the end. Some have little bits of sex sprinkled throughout. If you are looking for a rules you can tack up on the wall to improve your story every time, and I mean EVERY time, I would say there are a few: 1) Worry about grammar when you re-write your story 2) Re-write your story - print it out and make corrections/notes with ink. You'll notice so many neat improvements doing that. 3) When you re-write your story, see where you can shorten things and do it. I read Stephen King's book "On Writing". So many great tips. One thing he said that stuck with me is something like "kill your little dearies" meaning just because you wrote it, don't be afraid to cut it down to a size that still makes sense. You'll really make it less boring.
