The Tumblr ban is NOT about community, and never was

I didn’t use Tumblr very much when I had an account. When I did, I used it as an author platform for myself back when I was still a fledgling writer creating YA fantasy that I was never completely happy with. I was still arrogant as hell when I wrote a couple of posts explaining, from my perspective, what made for good fiction versus bad fiction. Gods, I was so arrogant. But I later discovered that, more and more, there was an adult community growing there as well.

#FantasySmutFriday – Week 8

Ladies and gentleman of smut, welcome to this week’s #FantasySmutFriday challenge! Each week, I’ll present a new writing prompt based on a fantasy, and you’ll have one week to craft a flash story(~1,000 words or less) that fulfills this fantasy. The plot, events, characters, and twists are all up to you, so long as it brings the fantasy to life.

My Smut Marathon Experience

Those of you who have followed me for a while already know that I was a participant of the Smut Marathon over the past year. For those that don’t, the Smut Marathon is a year-long event where writers of erotica and smut compete in story challenges that push us to improve our writing abilities. I only made it to Round 6, but I did have a lot of fun writing, reading, and voting on all of the great entries that were available. But before I tell you about my experience, I’d like to give an apology.

Thank you

I’ve delayed myself in writing this a few days as I have needed time to think about what I wanted to say, and how I wanted to say it. I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, or you’re noticing at this very moment, that badge over to the right of this post. (Probably not, if you’re reading this on mobile) As of a few days ago, I was placed on the list of Top 100 Sex Blogs of 2018, and it has really offset a series of mixed feelings I’ve been having recently about this whole thing I have been working on over the past 2 years I’ve been writing for Forbidden Writings. If you’ll indulge me.

“The Neighborhood Swappers” by Roslyn Hetrick – A Review

It’s always interesting to me how no two authors I read from ever have similar styles, or approaches, to their erotica. And I mean this in a good way when I talk about the smut writers I admire. Most recently, Roslyn Hetrick, just to name one. There’s a combined moment when you discover how one author chooses to portray the events that tantalize their mind, and the moment you realize you’re fancy is about to be tickled in a way you haven’t enjoyed yet. Some would call this an ‘A-ha’ moment, but I prefer to call it my ‘Oh, damn’ moment.

Primal Play: Setting The Scene

It’s been quite a long time since I last wrote on the topic of Primal Play. A couple of years ago, I wrote about my findings on what Primal Play is, and my discovery that I am also primal. It would be some time until I would write another post about what it means to be primal, and how primals interact with the rest of us. Since then, I find myself in a position where I feel I’ve learned a lot more about Primal Play through my personal experience as a primal, learning from other primals, as well as seeing a need for another post delving even further into what Primal Play entails. Several, actually.
