I feel like I’ve only just gotten started with toy reviews, and just last week, I received an email to review something pretty special. The message came from a team of engineers in Oslo, a division of a larger engineering firm, that asked me to beta-test a new product. I was absolutely intrigued and took a look at their website for more details. Shortly thereafter, I accepted, quite excited. Roughly a week later, I could barely contain my excitement when a package was delivered to my doorstep.
The day had wound down and come to an end. For Bree, the day had been filled with serving customers, listening to complaints from people far more angry about the quality of the food they received than they probably should have been, and busy alleys at the grocery store. Being able to come home and relax had given her some much-needed respite, and a good meal did much to lift her spirits. Afterward, she tied up her blonde hair and enjoyed a hot shower and some evening television in some choice comfy clothes.
Reading this story, I was reminded of something else I’d learned from Stephen King’s memoir, “On Writing”. He said, “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write”. I had always taken this to heart and came to know that being a good writer means knowing what works and what doesn’t by knowing how others created that written magic we all come to love and get lost in. The best stories really do teach you something you didn’t understand before and helps provide a perspective that makes you think and want to write. I’m reminded of this because “Leather God Descending” is a wonderful example of a story you can get lost in, as well as understand something I wasn’t very familiar with before.
I had intended to write this post several days sooner, but like everything else on my plate at the moment, it’s coming out later than I had intended. I’m still working to catch up, and scratch the little itches in the form of new ideas I’ve created over the past week or so. But the big thing I wanted to talk about was the awesomeness that was Smutathon!!
I announced this over Twitter near the start of the month but failed to make any mention here. I’ll be participating in a fantastic event in Montreal this weekend with several other lovely, fellow smut writers I’ve come to be acquainted with over the past couple years. For 12 hours, we’ll be furiously writing and posting some tasty smut for you to enjoy as we raise funds for the NNAF Abortion Funds, a grassroots organization building power to remove financial, logistical, cultural and political barriers to abortion access. So if you enjoy smut and feel that women’s health is an increasingly important issue, you’ll want to stick around for this!
When I saw this week’s Food 4 Thought Friday prompt, I thought it would be a good idea to take up the challenge and talk about what pushes me to write. If you have been following up on my posts, then you already know a bit about my past and know that I grew up with a lot of siblings and not a lot of direction in my life. Writing was definitely not something I had intended to do with my life in the beginning. I was more the type to not have a plan for the future until about 5 minutes before it happened, which meant much of my free time was dedicated to playing video games as much as possible. It wasn’t that I didn’t care about what I would do, I just didn’t feel like I needed to worry about it at that moment.
What dream did you have that made you wake up more aroused than you’ve ever been? There’s no special restriction to this challenge, but there is a bit of extra freedom. In dreams, anything is possible, and that is what I want you to do. Push your erotic creativity to the point of experiencing something that could only be experienced in a dream.
