I need to read Rachel's new stuff and even though I detest ketchup, for her I feel obliged to make an exception. Big Hugs

MM is right about Evie's piece which is a stunner and almost certainly podium bound, and I also loved VG's but idk. There was so much variety in this competition!

I'll have a Hannah, please. Where's Margot? Join me?

You'll love this ketchup, Hannah!

So it's gonna be beers all around. No problem. Just tapped a new keg of Bloated Bladder Beer.

Of course, the Hannah unit gets hot tea. However, in a display of male solidarity, I'm sneaking in some special enhancement to help her SO in the coming struggle. ;)

Thanks for that kind note you left on my profile, Ms Elizabeth.

And would someone ask Curvy if she got my enthusiastic acceptance of her friend request. There may have been some hitch in the get-along and I don't want to give her time to change her mind.

Any more orders for beer,. booze or whatever else might turn you on.

Hey, you two quit staring at your hands for a sec. I just had an EPIC THOUGHT! Like, what if we think we're all different people living different lives, living everyday lives n shit, but we're all really just one person, living in an infinite number of moments simultaneously? Wouldn't that be AWESOME!!!???

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.

Topic How serious do you take your story. Or if you're a reader how serious do you want the story to be?
Posted 06 Jun 2017 13:55

I take it very seriously. My characters aren't just hot folk. They have minds and issues and loads of other stuffs. Sometimes my stories aren't even hot at all. They're just rambling monologues.


As a reader, the image of two pneumatic purely physically described people (with measurements etc) bouncing around does not really engage my interest.

But if I know a bit about their characters, their back story, the chemistry between them, how they ended up in bed (or wherever,) and if there's a twist, then the scenario becomes interesting and sexy.

As Hannah says, it's the minds and issues of the characters that engage the reader. I don't for a minute think her stories are rambling monologues but in my own stories I get so caught up in my characters that sex can be an afterthought. People are sexy, not just bodies....

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! 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!
