"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.

ARGO is such a wonderful movie.....perfect story telling, every character actor perfectly cast and beautifully understated acting by several of the actors. The housekeeper's scene at the Canadian ambassador (Ken Taylor's) residence gate is Oscar worthy. Yay CANADA!! George Clooney sure knows how to pick them and Ben Affleck has finally made another good movie. The Beverly Hilton reminds me of my movie financing days....spent more than a few nights in that dog of a hotel haha.

Took the train to Venice. 5+ hours, but who can pass up a trip to Venice? Plus train rides in Italy are a joy in themselves. Night train back tonight and then straight onto the flight back to HK. Hectic but stimulating. Some of the Italian women sure know how to dress with élan!! If you love COFFEE like me skip "Cafe Florian" at Euro 15 per cup. SO MANY great coffee shops in Venice where insanely good coffee can be had for Euro 2.5.

A "few" of you enjoyed my new story haha. Oh well it's too long to attract much attention. Thanks to everyone who read it and left a nice comment.

Well I have always wanted to enter a contest and now I've finally managed it. Had to rush, but hope some of you like it. My Ayako series is still soon to come, a beguiling half-Japanese leading lady to tempt you all. Anyways, no expectations on winning or anything, but just wanted to participate in the competition.

Watched Jean de Florette and Manon de Source again. Difficult to take, especially the last scene. Certainly on par with The Godfather parts 1 & 2 as far as film making go. Daniel Auteuil, cast against type, gives one of the greatest performances ever.

15 Oct 2012 22:51

Well my second story should hit 60K views today which is some sort of a milestone I guess. I have several new ones to publish including my new "Ayako" series about a half-Japanese temptress. I also hope to finish my competition entry in the next day or so to get my "spicy" story into the contest which will be the first contest I have actually finished a story in time to enter. Not much time to be on Lush or to write these days unfortunately.

Hitting Spasso tonight for some dancing and relaxation with David and some of his staff. Hopefully the deal goes through in the coming weeks. Back to Hong Kong late tomorrow if all goes as planned. It was hot & humid today (typical Bangkok) with some thunder storms. At night Bangkok can sometimes have the most spectacular lightning storms.

Getting ready for a quick one or two day jaunt to Bangkok (Krung Thep Nakhon), City of Angels, Land of Smiles, home of the 4-Faced Buddha and one of my fav restaurants, Zanotti's. I also plan to have coconut ice cream at the Oriental sitting beside the Chao Phraya River watching the Hummingbirds feed. Be back to Honkers in one or two days.

Back in Asia after a nice break in London. I've got my "Team GB" overpriced T-shirt and I gave business to the over-priced London restaurants so I did my part to stimulate Europe's economy. Time change is kicking my ass.

15 Aug 2012 10:39

London was cold and windy and had a little bit of rain today. Nice to have a story go over 60,000 views. Not much time for writing or reading these days??????? Japanese food tonight!!

"LONDON BABY!!!!!!!!"

Wow Typhoon #10 in Hong Kong last night. Howling winds, ripping rain. Today you can see whole trees pulled out of the ground and pieces of leaves and trees plastered to the 30th story windows. With the airport closed and Beijing in chaos due to rain and flooding I was sort of "grounded" and decided to just stay put for a few more days.

Well a rather fetching young lady surprised me with tickets to Batman. Friday night turned out to be more exciting than I thought it would. Serendipity....never under estimate serendipity!

Well in the space of like ten days four of my stories have passed 50,000 views. Thanks to all the readers and all the people who left encouraging comments. I guess I better finish some of the new stories. Sorry I've been so busy and many of my stories in progress and my older series have languished for far too long. Luckily there are now hundreds of writers here on Lush keeping everyone occupied.

10 Jul 2012 03:04

My first story just went over 50,000 views!! Sort of cool and two others are very close to passing that mark. Thanks to all my readers, especially the ones who have taken the time to leave a comment. Your comments really mean a lot. Perhaps some Champagne tonight to celebrate at Ozone on the 118th Floor.

02 Jul 2012 09:02

Thanks to all my readers. Sorry I've been so busy lately. Will try to post some new stories soon. Wow one story has hit over 49,000 views and another 48,000? I need to get some Champagne ready for the 50K mark. Time really flies here on Lush.

I'm so sad my old friend has deleted her profile....so many have gone.
