Topic: Announcing the Winners of our "Bookish" Story Competition
Posted: 15 Oct 2017 14:23

Awesome result! Congratulations to the well-deserved top three and of course everyone who entered and made this a wonderfully diversely interpreted competition. I managed to read a large proportion of them this time around and was thoroughly entertained by the fabulous talent on display.

Thanks to the judges for the tough job of ranking everything. There were too many great entries for me to even try and pick my personal top six, let alone three.

Topic: Collaborators Wanted for Girl-on-girl stories
Posted: 30 Sep 2017 07:04

Being a sci-fi nerd myself and into plot-driven stories, I'd love to collaborate on something with someone, but don't think I'll meet your stringent requirements. For starters, I'm not a girl (last time I checked at least).

So instead of putting my hand up, I'll let you decide if I'm suitable for one of your projects. To help you draw a conclusion, here are some of my stories that I wrote from a female POV (not necessarily girl-girl):

* The Zip
* Muff Nudge
* Alone in Her Hotel Room
* Exercising Restraint
* Reawakening Rebecca
* Science Slut

All except the first have been awarded Recommended Reads or Editor's Picks, which I'm insanely proud of, given the fact I'm disadvantaged by my sex at not having a clue what goes through the female mind.

There are plenty more stories available on my profile page. If after reading you don't feel I'm worthy or you get a better offer, no offence will be taken. Thanks for the opportunity all the same.

A double-do here, given that I've posted two stories in rapid (well, for me) succession.

The first attracted an RR, which I'm chuffed about, and explores the moment when a guy on his way home from work encounters a beautiful woman undressing in her bedroom window. Sounds like a run-of-the-mill voyeur story, right? Wrong! You'll just have to read Window of Opportunity to find out why.

The second is my entry into the 'Bookish' competition about a struggling couple seeking reconnection who turn to a self-help guide for assistance with their relationship. This one's a lot more straightforward, so anyone looking for plot twists and stuff won't find them here. All the same, I'd be honoured if you could find ten minutes to spare and read Something Missing, Something Found .

Thanks in advance for taking a peek into the world of Wannabe.

Topic: Question for Writers
Posted: 01 Sep 2017 13:29

I suppose it depends firstly on how you define politics, and the relationship of politics to the personal and to ethics and morality {snip}


Topic: Writing Exercises
Posted: 01 Sep 2017 13:18

Not a writing exercise, per se, but a great writer's block cure for me is to do something mind numbingly tedious. Like wash the dishes. Doing something boring while watching the world go by outside the window allows my head to freewheel. Ideas tend to flow again. What if such-and-such, or wouldn't it be great if...

By the time the dishes are clean, I usually scribble a tonne of stuff on the pad and pen I leave nearby.

Topic: Stories that ARE stories
Posted: 27 Aug 2017 16:22

I concur with the above: browncoffee, RavenStar, Burquette, oceanrunner, VirgoGo, Liz, Jen, and Wilful to name but a few, all have fabulous plot-first stories in their collections. MadMartigan has a unique, plot-driven, trippy style too, and though it's not always to everyone's tastes, it's pretty visceral.

Me? Well I try . I'm not in the above league, but if you fancy wading through the prose, you might find something you like among my characters. For a list, check out the Joining the Badgers thread, which gives a little precis of each to whet your appetite.

What do scientists do behind closed lab doors? One possible answer is explored in my latest Recommended Read Science Slut . Yes, the title kinda gives away what happens, but the journey was fun to conjure up. Even if Sci-Fi isn't your regular category, I've tried to keep the sciency bit in the background of the story, so I hope you find it a blast to read.

Topic: Announcing the Winners of our "Pure Filth" Story Competition
Posted: 02 Aug 2017 14:26

I echo the sentiments thus far. Even though I didn't get to read as many as I hoped prior to the cutoff date, the ones I did really took the competition theme to the max. Some brilliant entries, hopefully more of which I'll read soon.

Congrats to everyone who entered, and of course those that took the top spots. Don't think I could have picked a top three out of that lot, so full marks also to the judges who had their work cut out for them.

After a few months dicking around with a word processor, part two of The Hard Drive has been published. It directly follows on from the car-based action in the first instalment and follows our stunt-driving protagonist as he tries to regain control in the aftermath of the failed heist.

Anyone who likes fast cars, slow cars, car chases, and sex ought to find it an entertaining read so please give it a read and let me know what you think.

Welcome to author land. Thanks for joining the club and sharing your writing.

Regarding the user who replied with the same message on everyone's comment on your story, no it's not acceptable behaviour. It's spamming by any other name, thanks for raising this. I'm sure one of the moderators with more clout than me will help explain to this person about site etiquette and take further steps if necessary.

The Hard Drive - Part 3

Wheels. I'm as choosy about wheels as women these days. Wasn't always that way. While I can drive pretty much anything with an engine, I've found I only truly enjoy that thunder beneath the hood. The rush when pedal meets floor, beating through every bone in my body. Something only the raw horsepower of a V8 delivers. And if it's a dependable American hunk with a short shift ratio...

Something Missing, Something Found

Clad only in brand new heels and lingerie, Beth climbed up onto the edge of the Egyptian cotton bed sheets. Slowly and deliberately, just like she'd been instructed, she began crawling for the pillows with exaggerated wiggles of her hips. Pausing partway across the king-size expanse, she looked back, biting her lip. "Is this okay?" Standing a short distance from the foot of the bed in...

Recommended Read Window of Opportunity

I didn't mean to stop and watch, but simply couldn't resist her lithe silhouette framed in the saffron rectangle of light that clicked on ahead of me. Like a glowing beacon in the cold evening gloom, the warmth of the bedroom spilled into the residential street, moments before her mesmerising beauty paused within it. With curves that would inspire a Formula One track designer, I had...

Recommended Read Science Slut

Her slender fingers hovered above the Enter key, wanting to do it and not at the same time. Despite the air-con, a bead of sweat made itself known beneath her plain blouse. The feelings never changed, no matter how many times she'd run the experiment. Racing pulse. Fluttering heart. The line between excitement and fear undefined. There was always the chance the parameters were wrong....

The Hard Drive - Part 2

Until now, I'd never needed to watch my own house for signs of someone trying to kill me. How things change in the space of a few hours. I stared hard through the windshield, eyes watering between blinks, keeping low in the luxurious Recaros. My normally blood red Mustang glowed muddy orange beneath the sodium-vapor hue of a street lamp. A few hundred feet ahead of me, the suburban box I...

The Hard Drive

I like women like my cars: expensive and dangerous. But the brunette hammering on the inside of the trunk lid of my 2015 Mustang GT was in a different class on both counts. Seemed like she was trying to outgun the pistons that raged a few feet ahead of me as I swerved around a beaten-up Honda and cut back in front, tires squealing, wipers on overdrive. Collateral is such an ugly term and I...

Editor's Pick Worth The Risk

Her thumb was out, but it wasn't the first thing Warren noticed. Had there been any other traffic besides his BMW on the tree-lined state highway, her figure would have stopped it. Honeyed hair, the same hue as the endless scorched road surface upon which he'd been travelling, tumbled down her back and brushed the exposed strip of midriff below the loose hem of her white vest top. Stunning....

Editor's Pick Muff Nudge

"Next!" I called, more curtly than was professional. Nineteenth customer of the day can do that to a girl, not that I was counting. My calves ached beneath the cheap, gimmicky costume that was covered in other people's hair. Nobody in their right mind wanted their hair cut by an elf. It was stupid. And to cap it off, fucking Bieber bleated about love on the local station, like he was even...

The Zip

I don’t care what the narrow-minded villagers will call us. Kneeling before you in the sanctuary of your lilac bedroom, nothing else matters. My heart gallops, your vanilla scent dancing among other particles that somersault in the rays of sunlight streaming through the open window to strike your lithe physique. Wisps from the glowing caramel waterfall of your hair catch the breeze,...

Anniversary need

Ever since you allowed me to go down on you, I've been smitten by your pussy. Especially when wet, like now. Ordinarily averse to “the 'C' word” the cuss falls freely from behind smudged lipstick as you beg me to introduce a third finger. It glides in easily, wetly, back and forth alongside the others, your breathing laboured. I adore it when you're out of control, eyes shut, cheeks...
