Well I was born on an island. I live on an island. I go to islands mainly for vacations? Never thought about it before, but islands seems to be a theme? Must be a story in there somewhere.

Lush has a bad habit of making me late for meetings.

Awww gosh Rachel THANKS!! A touch of blue makes my page look so much more elegant. Been busy and the birthday thing was sort of depressing. My coal deal seems to be going sideways so that's a bummer. Working on a few stories, but just can't find the time. So many of the old friends have left Lush and are gone so missing Carmyn, Alison90 and Kitty and so many others who just "poof" disappeared. C'est la vie.

Okay have done my edit and re-submitted "The French Cowboy". Let's hope it gets approved this time. My homage to Louis L'Amour whom my father and I both loved to read. Hope it finds a few willing readers.

Oops, my "Western" story, my homage to Louis L'Amour got rejected gang. I'm traveling, but when I have time I'll edit and re-submit.

Just submitted my first "Western", a love story. My homage to Louis L'Amour. My dad and I loved reading his books when I was young. Gotta stretch myself as a writer. Don't know if readers will take to it at all, but hope a few cotton-on to the style. I'm off to Malaysia today so may not be on too much for the next few days. Another plane ride..........short at least.

I'm SO GLAD "Sex Money" has been recognized as a "recommended read". So justly deserved! Renews your faith in the world. [Stop pouting John!! Self-pity is NOT endearing] Well done Emilia, my favorite series on LUSH.

If you want to see the pictures that go with my new story "15 Minutes is NOT Enough" then you can view the new album I have posted under the same title. It gives a little "photographic insight" into Kelly's life and dreams.

Editing my competition entry. It should squeak under the 12K word limit (JUST!) haha. Anyways a classic tale of the "against all odds" American dream, the individual succeeding, with elements of the past haunting the present adding (I hope) some richness and texture. A nice little "twist" that I hope is appreciated by lovers of confident ambitious young women. Should be posted soon.

Back from Paradise......I mean Cebu. Got to catch up on a bit of reading and get back to my writing. Nice to have Lush to return to after a refreshing get away. Hong Kong unfortunately has been a bit cold and wet so I'm missing the sun and sea.

Off for ten days of scuba diving so won't be checking in much. Have a nice Easter everyone.

Can you be that girl I've always wanted? That girl that drives me crazy? Great song!!

17 Mar 2013 08:09

Haha well that teaches me not to edit my stories. "Don't Worry Cupid Has a Plan" lost its space on the front page as a February Pick? It also disappeared from the Love Story category rankings? Oopps? So much for embellishing my title page.

You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down. You look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.

Well my story was actually admitted to the competition after all. Thanks Lush!! Serendipity strikes another blow for artistic freedom. My story deals with the redemptive power of love when our lives hit the inevitable "rough patches". I treasure the readers who make it all the way through my long tales and actually leave nice messages. Thanks so much.

20 Feb 2013 04:34

OOpps? I guess my story is too long? Won't be in the competition after all.

20 Feb 2013 00:53

Have just submitted my Valentine's Day contest entry. Hope a few of you find the time to read it during your busy lives.

18 Feb 2013 21:10

Just back from a nice break in Bangkok and a quick stopover for meetings in London. Nice to be back on Lush and hope to finish a story soon.

"The Way to Paradise-Part 2" has been resoundly panned by the Lush readership. Back to the drawing board? Back to square one? Can the series in the proverbial "failed writer's dustbin"? Oh well, beautiful day in Hong Kong and summer seems to have arrived extremely early this year. Women are wearing shorts and mini skirts? Thank you global warming.

Another "runner-up", you didn't quite make it, "almost there", "close only counts in hand grenades" moments. Management knowing I would burst into tears has given me the proverbial "gold ribbon" as a consolation prize. [Big SIGH]

The flu has been kicking my ass and I hate cold weather when I can't ski. Haha not that most of you would consider Hong Kong to be cold. Hope you all have time to enjoy a wonderful bunch of holidays coming up. Finally got all my Christmas cards done.

OMG I'm in FUCKING SHOCK???? An Editor's Pick?? Pour Moi??? Really? Frank's "No Honey" has an Editor's Pick??? Am I worthy?? John bows to the gods of writing and prepares his offerings to thank SERENDIPITY for his good fortune. Serendipity has smiled on him today and he is thankful. Oh and of course thanks to all the hard working editors at Lush of course. (John wonders if they were smoking weed when they selected his story????)

Well my first story with a "historical" setting has been submitted. We'll see how it goes. It is a psychological study of BDSM set on the edges of the Imperial French Empire in 1809. Yes, I'm trying to "challenge" myself. It will be in 2 or 3 parts, so this one introduces you to the key characters and "sets the scene" in a mere 12,500 words.

I had no idea my story got "honorable mention" in the Spice it UP Competition??? Wow? I didn't even know there was "honorable mention"? It's sort of like being the guy who almost got the girl in the movie, but not quite. She picks the other hotter guy, but her friend tells you "you're so sweet" and she "really likes you"-- i.e. "honorable mention" haha. Hey thanks to everyone who participated in the competition and as I said before CONGRATS to the winners!! So many stories were entered it was like an avalanche of talent, a veritable tsunami of fine erotic literature; I have no idea how the Admin could even pick a winner? Well done everyone, great contest.

Another 20 Christmas cards down. I need to cull this list since too many trees are dying for Jesus? Can't decide between Christmas in Hong Kong (which is comfy and great) or London or Bangkok? Actually Bangkok does some amazing lights for Christmas...ironic for a Buddhist country? It's the $$$ I guess....always like that in the world.....follow the money!!

29 Nov 2012 23:25

Doing my Christmas cards. What a pain. Have done 20 today so far. Almost finished my next story, my first with a "historical" setting. There have been a few stories with "historical" settings on here that I've liked. I guess it doesn't make sense to have such a category? I just don't know how to categorize it???

26 Nov 2012 20:03

Well my new story is up. A sort of Murakami/Dream/Reality kind of story dealing with the fascination we all have with "the one"? For men this means "the girl of our dreams". The story will not be to everyone's taste I'm sure, but I hope a few readers find it enjoyable.

Hong Kong is turning cold. The tight jeans and winter boots have come out to play. Gotta love it!!

Well quick one-night trip to Beijing and it looks like it might even be a success? We'll see later this week, but might even make some money before the year ends. That would be nice. Dinner at "Made in China" one of my FAVORITE spots in Beijing. Afterwards my translator took me (don't laugh) to LUSH Bar in Wudaokou. I was a bit old for the hot young crowd, but being with my sexy translator who's a young lady from Changsha made me look much younger. The day ended even better than it started.
