Smut Marathon Round 5 Voting

As of last night, the window for accepting new entries into Round 5 of the Smut Marathon closed, and as of today, the voting round has begun. As you may remember, Round 4 closed with a total of 30 writers moving on to this round. But due to unforeseen circumstances like other projects, family problems, or other issues as Marie Rebelle addressed, five writers have chosen to pull out of the competition. This now leaves 25 total entries left in the marathon. I wish all those who pulled out a bright blessing, and great success in their future endeavors.

As for the Round 5 assignment, I can finally share what we were tasked with doing. Round 5 was similar to Round 2, in which we were tasked to pick an entry from the previous assignment and expand upon it.

Choose one of the masturbation scenes from round 4 (not your own) and write an erotic scene from the perspective of the sex toy in the chosen scene.

Upon reading this, I had an immediate reaction somewhere in the ballpark of this:

tenor

…. I’m sorry. What?

How else am I supposed to react, though? I’ve never written a story from the perspective of a sex toy before, or any object for that matter. This was entirely new territory for me! Thankfully, Marie anticipated this, and gave us plenty of resources on how to go about it. Our entries had a limit of 400 words, and needed a title between 2-4 words. Oh, and the entry we choose to rewrite could not be our own.

Despite this, I actually managed to pick an entry, rewrite it to the new standards, edit and complete it that same day. I was feeling pretty proud of myself too. I now had something done, and it was ready the same day the assignment was sent. I liked it a lot, too. But two weeks later, I read over it again, and remembered another entry I really liked. I wasn’t planning on it, but my mind was already coming up with another possible story based on the other entry. I remember I was actually getting ready for bed when the sentences started forming, and groaned as I convinced myself to get out of bed and write it down.

Suffice to say it was the second entry I wrote that I entered. I felt it was much more balanced than the story I wrote on day 1 of this assignment. Despite my short-comings in previous rounds, I’m quite happy with what I wrote this time. And if I don’t do well, I’m going to try my best to understand why. I’ll probably share the first one I wrote next week when voting is over.

I just hope the feedback will be more informative than it has been in the past. Not that it’s all been bad, but it hasn’t all been good either. And I think it’s about time I talk about that in my next post.

I encourage everyone to read the Smut Marathon Round 5 entries and vote for your favorites. You can vote for up to 3, but you can only vote once. As usual, I can’t tell you which one is mine, or even hint at it. You have until 9 June 2018 at 23.00 CET (Amsterdam time) to make your vote, so you better hurry!
