Topic: Do you like to hear your wife or girlfriend tell you about previous lovers?
Posted: 23 Jun 2017 09:50

No. And yes.

I hate it because I'm insanely jealous, but in that envy is a sublime sort of arousal. It's kind of like a sexual version of running a tongue ulcer along your teeth.

Not very green

Central African Republic

Topic: How serious do you take your story. Or if you're a reader how serious do you want the story to be?
Posted: 18 Jun 2017 08:09

Anyone can write the sex we have during the week, but honestly, if you are creating a fantasy, don't you feel it should be worth fantasizing about?

Others have rightly picked up on this thoughtful idea, but I'd flip it around. Anyone can make fucking an 18 year old on a trapeze (I'm being glib) interesting and exotic, but the banal beauty of the everyday, the kind of pathos of Brief Encounter or an Edward Hopper painting, is a kind of holy grail of any kind of art. For me anyway.

This isn't an attempt to stir up conflict, and I'm not for one minute suggesting you'll find it in anything I write, I'm just offering an alternative perspective. I think Hopper once said that he hated painting flowers as their beauty was 'self-sufficient'; the challenge is finding beauty and excitement beyond the obvious.

"Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in."

Leonard Cohen said that.

I look for ways to make my characters more real - a pot belly here, a scar there, hang ups and neuroses lurking all over the place; I don't always dwell on them (my stories are short by Lush standards), and my writing more often focuses on the attractive parts of my characters and the pleasurable aspects of their sex, but the cracks are there. Without them, I'm just making cartoons.

Speaking more broadly about the question, I spend far too long, sometimes months, crafting a 2500 word story. I have no delusions of making great art, but I do take it seriously and I won't submit something I am not 100% happy with. I have submitted six stories on this site (one under an earlier name) and, although I have my own preferences, in different ways I'll stand by each of them, imperfections and all (see Leonard again). I'd hate to put out something that I later found embarrassing (not disliked, that's slightly different), so I kind of have to take it seriously.

Topic: Favourite Manchester Band
Posted: 17 Jun 2017 07:10

Oasis were the first band I fell in love with and Noel Gallagher is still among the top five people I'd love to have a drink with. The Stone Roses are probably the only Manchester band with an album I'd class among the very best ever made, but did precious little else. I like the Smiths, but wish I'd got into them as a teenager rather than my early twenties; they'd have meant so much more then.

It's tough but, on balance and right now, I'd say Joy Division.

Breaking Free

"I'm worth more than this!" Those were his last words before he hit "end call". Our relationship wasn't working. We both knew that, and after three years we were as good as finished. He later persuaded me to give us another go, but really, there was no chance. I needed to be single again. He was my first love and I felt trapped, done and dusted before I had the chance to even scratch...

Recommended Read Susannah

"Can I?" Susannah whispered, her face crumpling into a tipsy half-giggle. "You don't mind?" She had asked to "try out" on my boyfriend, James. She was  always  asking. "Why not?" I sighed, lifting myself from the sofa and exiting towards the kitchen, muttering, "it's about time!"  Susannah was in almost every way a perfectly normal, attractive young woman. Tall, slender and willowy of...

Recommended Read The fall of Eden

Eden was a good girl. Everyone said so: her parents, teachers, friends, even parents of friends. She worked so hard, achieved the best grades, kept steady boyfriends; Eden was a good girl and she was sick of it. After three long months of hard, relentless study for her final exams, she was ready to cut loose, to be someone else, to be bad. She applied a smear of scarlet lipstick and...

The Letting Go

Thwack. Thud. Squeak. The sounds of the adjacent squash court filled my ears and danced with the vibrations in my temple. My fucking boss and my fucking job, my fucking ex with his perfect fucking wife, the endless fucking holes in my fucking life. Thud. Thud. Thud. I stood in lonely silence, but the noise inside my head was deafening and relentless.  I pulled my sodden top over my head....

Reunion

The college reunion must be the closest mankind has come to mastering time travel. Twenty-five years older and in a swanky city-centre hotel rather than some rough student digs, everything else was the same: the same crowd, making the same in-jokes, sat cross-legged on a carpet playing the same drinking games. It was sweet in a way; a piece of eternal youth at that stage in our lives when...
