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. In the meantime, if there's a delete button by any of this user's comments, feel free to use it.

Topic: How serious do you take your story. Or if you're a reader how serious do you want the story to be?
Posted: 13 Jun 2017 14:50

Most of my stuff starts life with a "moment" or a single line / description that just pops in my head. Mostly mundane things that I try to glamorise. The "wouldn't it be cool if..." thing. I then work out from there. Sometimes that moment is the start. Sometimes I stretch out in both directions to set that moment up and deliver payoff. So, yeah, I try to make plot matter and take writing seriously. But hopefully not too seriously so the story disappears up its own arse in symbolism. Sometimes a situation works and is effortless and rewarding, other times it's bloody frustrating to finish it or just doesn't work as a concept so I'll drop it.

I make no bones about the fact that Puddleduck and Browncoffee and Saucymh and Jen and RavenStar and a whole host of amazing authors here write stuff that makes my jaw drop when I read it. It's not just porn for porn's sake ('came home and my step-sister was in the shower, well, I always fancied her so I fucked her and she came fifty-eight times because I've got a ten foot cock, the end'), it's getting behind the minds that create situations. The believability of the situation plays a huge part in that, without the author feeling the need to start the story with "This is a true story that really happened to me, it did, honest."

Like a good horror flick, some of the best erotic stories here, imo, leave a lot of gratuitous detail out and lead you to it in your head. I'm not there yet, but I'm a wannabe.

Topic: What's your writing practice?
Posted: 03 Jun 2017 15:21

I tend to write in the evenings, only because the rest of the day is taken up with day things. But I tend to write better stuff earlier when I'm fresher, if I ever get the chance. And only when inspired. If I'm not in the mood, I won't force it. That's one reason I churn out a piece every six months and could probably never write for a living.

Mostly I work in silence on a word processor. Sometimes the cats join in. The other reason for my sporadic output is because of this crappy habit of writing stuff one day, then instead of continuing where I left off the next day, I'll go back and reread what I wrote and end up changing a boatload of stuff. By the time I've done that, I'll get to where I was the day before, write two sentences and that'll be it. Then repeat the next day: reread, edit, add little or no more content. Repeat for a week or so. Then suddenly have a flash of inspiration and knock out the remainder of the story in one evening. Then edit the entire piece for a month or two, hack out the cruft, embellish the embellishable, tighten dialogue and descriptions, over and over until I'm sick of it. Then, either publish and hope, or ditch the piece and start over with something else.

Yeah, I need a new workflow.

I do find that mundane tasks help my mind freewheel. That's one blessing with not have a dishwasher: some of my best story arcs have become clear in my head while washing the dishes.

Topic: Interacting with your audience
Posted: 14 May 2017 15:33

If a reader has put the effort into trawling through my story and it moved them to make a comment, I try to respond in kind in the public space. Don't know if many appreciate the random anecdotes about my writing process that stem from their comment, but I sometimes dish it out anyway.

It's great to receive feedback so I can improve and, as others have said, the comments mean more than the votes to me.

Topic: How do we feel about longer stories/novellas?
Posted: 12 May 2017 03:23

I write long-form, but rarely make a series (though I do have a recurring character). My preference is to wrap everything up in one story, despite lower readership numbers than shorter escapades. I tried writing Flash, but wasn't entirely satisfied with the outcome.

I love reading stories that are plot and character-driven. This is difficult to do well in shorter works, so I prefer longer stories or series that are well-written. If only I could make time to read them all...

Topic: Joining the badgers
Posted: 19 Apr 2017 15:01

Fans of fast cars and MILFs, or even MILFs locked in fast cars, should probably check out my latest collection of words, sentences, and paragraphs. The Hard Drive follows the plight of a stunt driver by day doing "one last heist" by night that goes a bit wrong. Throw in some money, a car, diamonds, sex, a car, a horny 16-year-old, and did I mention a car? Et voila.

If I say any more I'd be giving too much away, so just go read it. Thanks in advance when you do.

Topic: Votes only with comments - a polite request for your thoughts
Posted: 06 Apr 2017 01:37

I'm not a fan of forced commenting. Sometimes I'll read an excellent story and write a comment immediately, then add a score afterwards (because comments don't refresh the entire page, but scores do). If my proposed score then pops up a box asking for a comment, well, I've already left one so I cancel the score: no point writing a second comment for the sake of it. Plus, I don't like the popup comments box as it's not very conducive to writing longer comments: you have to scroll too much to read it back.

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...

The Confession, 2065

I stand before you, the jury, accused of a heinous crime, and extend my apologies in advance if this account appears somewhat graphic. But I assure you the level of detail is necessary to provide context that will allow you to reach your verdict. First of all, yes, I did it. There's no escaping the fact. Nothing can undo the wrongs I have committed and there's little excuse for my...

Editor's Pick Exercising Restraint

I know you're in love with my curvy arse, especially the way my cheeks rise and fall in sequence with each revolution of the exercise bike pedals. The taut skin casts barely a ripple in the black yoga pants, save for the faint outline of my cotton knickers and the crease below each globe where their flawless contour joins my thighs. From your vantage point, sat at eye level with my peach, I...

Editor's Pick Reawakening Rebecca

The woman stared up from the recliner at the study's ceiling tiles, their geometry an irritating counterpoint to the tumbling thoughts beneath her silver bob. Consternation creased her exquisitely manicured eyebrows. "Surely one should not behave in such a manner, should one? It’s simply not proper." She brought cherry polished nails to one cheek and gave it an idle scratch. "At fifty-five,...
