Hi everyone! I'm Curvy, as you can see!

Most people are on here 'cos they find sex sexy. I find history sexy but I'm on here anyway!

Interests:
I enjoy books, movies, music, yoga, walks by the sea. I love to cook and also I'm lucky enough to enjoy a busy social life. Most of all, I live to dance
Favorite Books:
Far too many to list! Apart from 'Rochester's Monkey' by Graham Greene which I'm re-reading at the mo, one of my fave's is 'Roaring Boys' by Judith Cook. She brings Shakespearian London to vibrant life!
Favorite Authors:
Depends on my mood: but anything from Jane Austen to Dorothy L Sayers to Phil Rickman and anything and everything in between and before and after.
Favorite Movies:
Fave genre would be film noir, also anything from Powell & Pressburger. I do love film in general, but the only genres I would avoid would be rom coms and musicals (shudder). Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule.
Favourite TV Shows:
Usually dramas and history programmes. I'm lapping up The Last Kingdom, the recent adaptation of Bernard Cornwell's Saxon novels and was transfixed by The Headless Gladiators of York, (yes, a real title) a recent history documentary.
Favorite Music:
Almost everything, especially if I can dance to it!

And look at that, someone has sent me a PM asking if I am Australian. That was always going to happen with any audio story I uploaded.

Heavens forfend!! I'll buy you that next shot of Old Charter as compensation, Laura!

I did not know any of that. Thank you for sharing, now I need to go and read about her mother. I love finding out about strong women from a time when it was not easy and hardly popular or acceptable to be that. Unseemly is a word I have heard to describe "those women". Glad those days are over or are they? I wonder some days.

Great and inspiring ideas from everyone! :)

What you said about the context and attitudes of those times reminded me of a couple of quotes about Mary Wollstonecraft. Hope I'm not being a history bore!!

'But if a woman claimed prerogatives traditionally associated with men – political participation, education, civil rights – she found herself isolated... Her impropriety tainted her radical, feminist ideas, and to most of her contemporaries, Wollstonecraft’s life seemed to prove the wisdom of adhering to tradition: her rebellion against traditional strictures on women’s behaviour seemed only to lead to disgrace and death. For the overwhelming majority of women of the upper and middle classes, the price of Wollstonecraft’s independence seemed too high.’

And: 'Mary died just in time to avoid the ludicrous sight of her sex being hoisted on to a new and supremely uncomfortable pedestal... Ladies, though intellectually inferior, were morally superior... In effect, women with Mary’s breadth and experience and outspokenness were lacking in England throughout the hundred years that followed her death.'

Perhaps it would be appropriate to toast Miss Wollstonecraft with a glass of port or Madeira, if you have it, kind barkeep? If not a glass of red wine would do just as nicely! <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/drunken_smilie.gif" alt="drunken">

I toyed with naming Shelley, but in truth I've only read "The Modern Prometheous."

Interestingly, in terms of famous women who happen to be women writers, I was going to mention her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft.

An extraordinary woman and a late 18th-century feminist who wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) amongst many other things.

Her fairly short life is so fascinating, that it's difficult to choose a short example. But maybe being so interested in the French Revolution (especially in terms of women's rights) that she decided to live in Paris during the thick of it might count as a good one!

Topic: Which kind of Point of View would I need to use?
Posted: 16 May 2017 15:01



When I got serious about writing, I read all of Elmore Leonard's Detroit novels at least twice (when he shifted to Florida his writing got a little stale). POV, pacing, dialogue, humor, the ability to nail the one perfect detail in a scene - that guy can do it all. Sad he is seen as "only" a genre writer. He transcends genre - a great American writer who IMHO changed American Literature, and for the better.



I couldn't agree more. Elmore Leonard's writing transcends genres. His dialogue and characterisation (plus all the rest of it) are awe-inspiring. He was also so darn good that it was easy for a reader to miss all that and just enjoy the moment he conjured up.

I've committed to a four part fantasy series about a girl in an arranged marriage. This is the sort of writing I cut my teeth on when I first started with erotica. Magical sex and kinda humans.

It's up now. And it got a RR. I couldn't be more pleased, because it's plot-heavy and sex light.

I have the whole plot planned on the back of an envelope. Scribbled it down in a burst of, "That would be fun to write."

I finished my Hannah. I think maybe a tea to follow?

Loved your story! Looking forward to the next bit; but unlike you and Hannah, I'm on the beer. *hic*

Topic: Would you date a garbage man?
Posted: 12 May 2017 16:08

Can we look at this logically?

This. I nearly married a guy who late in the relationship told me he'd be bothered if I made more money than him. One boyfriend tried to talk me out of going to college, assuring me that he would take care of me. The only person I've ever been with that I didn't try to hide at least some of my intelligence from is my wife.

I may have just been unlucky, but intelligence and earning potential did not seem to be a turn-on for the men I've met.

Interestingly, a (male) neighbour made a comment to me only a year or so ago, along the lines of, "Men don't choose to date clever women."

I think he was referring to my (actually chosen) single status. I was just taken aback to be called clever!! <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/evil6.gif" alt="evil4">

Oh btw, any guy who even dreams of holding my hand must always keep his hand in a glove of vaseline so it's soft.

It must be because of ostrich feather mules you wear, along with the elaborately curled coiffure ... <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/read2.gif" alt="read2">

Actually...just occurred to me.

I didn't click and the T-shirt is not an invitation to... anything.

I didn't click either, but I guess it's probably a willy. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/angel7.gif" alt="angel7">

Topic: Interacting with your audience
Posted: 09 May 2017 13:41

I so appreciate it when people take the time not only to read one of my stories also but to post a comment. Like others have said on this thread, it seems only courteous to respond, and that interaction is so encouraging. As Hannah said, it makes Lush a community of writers, which is pretty cool.

I also enjoy talking about stories with authors by PM too, it's really good to discuss someone's creativity in depth which a more public forum doesn't necessarily allow for. I really like how we all encourage each other's writing. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/read2.gif" alt="read2">

Dancin' the Blues

Dancin’ the blues Is a complicated business; First, you focus on the rhythm, Then you try to feel How your partner moves, Fumbling to sway with his groove: Most of all, you strain to blend with All the glory of That music, In three or four pressurised minutes, When you concentrate intensely On all these elements.   If you can surrender To the beat, your partner, That music, ...

End Game

London, February 1821 John strode across the bustle of Piccadilly, the wide road alive with people even at this late hour. He was glad to turn his steps towards home and to disappear into the huddle of dark streets that was Soho. He felt more at ease here in the shadows than he did in the melee of the West End. There, flaming torches lit the way, gilding the streets with an orange glow...

London, Spring 1816 He clearly remembered when he first became aware of a hint of unease; a sense of otherworldly darkness. Before then in his life, of course, he had moments of disquiet in terms of worry and fretting, but they were normal daylight concerns. He remembered as if from a great distance his medical training in the cool grey light of Edinburgh, his careful studies...

Blackout

It had seemed a good idea to hitch a lift into Bristol at the time, as Doctor Moffatt was driving in that direction. It’s not as though he would have had a full night in his own bed anyway, roused at the break of dawn to trundle around the countryside in unreliable buses. This way he would have to spend the night at the railway station, but at least he would not risk arriving late back at...

Simon sat at a table in a back room of the tavern nursing his glass of red wine. It was normally a raucous place after a performance at the theatre but tonight the atmosphere was strangely subdued. He stared into the candle stub, its flame flickering smokily as he recalled the afternoon’s entertainment. A new play at The Rose, particularly for an avid play goer, was something to look forward...

Helena waved off the happy couple as they departed down the rutted driveway in the somewhat old fashioned carriage and as she went indoors she felt a sense of dread falling upon her.

She looked around the shabby drawing room, now empty of revellers as they were...

Apocalypse

There had seldom been couples as striking as you both looked that evening. He wore a tailored black suit and an anthracite tie in a Windsor knot. You had tried your new evening dress. It had a famous name and evanescent laces of black and white, diving in an indecent décolleté. Your beautiful, slender neck, held high by antique jewelry. You were young and brilliant; sexy, and you knew it. ...
