The End of the Smut Marathon (for me)

The votes are over and the results are in. And if it hasn’t become clear by the title of this post already, I’ve been eliminated. I know I’ve expressed a bit of bitterness in past rounds due to the feedback and low scores I received, but now I feel… I don’t know the word. Somewhere between euphoric and relieved. Reconciled? I think that’s it.

Smut Marathon Round 6 Voting

I know I’m a couple days late with this post, so please forgive me on that matter. This past weekend was kind of crazy, and I’ve only just managed to recover from everything that happened. But as of Saturday, submissions for round 6 of the Smut Marathon came to a close for the 25 remaining writers. This is probably the first time a round has begun with the same number of writers as the number of writers who submitted a story. No one has dropped out, although I’ll admit to coming very close to it.

“Their Natural 20” by Daire Faust – A Review

I was honestly surprised by how good this story was. Although it’s shorter than books I would normally review, I enjoyed this one enough to make an exception. “Their natural 20” is the story of Brielle, who was recently dumped by a douche of a boyfriend because he thought she was “too curvy” for him. To try and take her mind off it, and make some new friends, she joins a Dungeons & Dragons group at her college. The group is happy to welcome her in, and she even impresses them with her roleplaying prowess.

Smut Marathon Round 5 Results and Going Forward

This round of the Smut Marathon wrapped up as of last night, and I woke up to the results just this morning. Round 5 of the Smut marathon closed with results looking somewhat sporadic as the points were distributed. In previous rounds, the points always looked somewhat focused as the judges often voted for the same people, even if not for the same number of points. However, with points spread out all over the place, it looked like the judges were a bit divided on what worked and what didn’t. A clear winner of the round was made, but runner-ups were cutting it pretty close to each other with some point differences as small as 0.2 points.

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 things in life we can’t control, 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.

Smut Marathon Round 4 Results and Moving Forward

This round of the Smut Marathon has been one of the most trying for many of us, I have to say. But the reason for this isn’t the tasks we were given, but because of what came after. Many took the feedback they received on their entries as a big hit to their self-esteem as a writer. I’ve been talking with several of the other writers all morning on Twitter as the feedback and results were released. It’s stirred me to take a step back and take a closer look at everything going on.

“Overcranked” by C.J. Douglass – A Review

To be honest, when I first saw C.J. Douglass’ advertisement banner for “Overcranked”, I immediately wanted to get my hands on it. Part of me hoped that if I conveniently shared my book review submissions page right then, she might see it and consider sending me a copy. Clever, I know, but it didn’t take, hahaha. Eventually, I just gave in and purchased a copy myself. I couldn’t help it, I just really wanted to read this one for myself.

Smut Marathon Round 3 results and Round 4

I’ll admit, this round was a bit of a doozy on all of us participating. The challenge, as you may remember, was for all of us to create a character sketch within no more than 200 words. This round began with 40 total entrants, and just barely closed with 39.

Playtime

This Erotic Bite comes as my meager attempt at DD/lg flash erotica. I can’t say for sure if this story will be very good, or even entirely accurate, but I’m open to any and all criticisms you’d like to leave in the comments. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Begin The Smut Marathon!!

Good evening, readers! Last month, I learned of a competition for erotica writers. One that would take place over the course of an entire year, and I couldn’t help but sign my name up for it! Which is why you’ll be seeing my the new badge in the sidebar of this site. But now that sign-ups are over, and the details have been sent, allow me to share some of the details.

Shower, then workout

In this Erotic Bite, I figured I’d take a stab at writing some flash erotica. I swear, I tried to keep the word count under a thousand words. But I suppose it wasn’t meant to work out this time around. Maybe next time! Still, this story will be shorter than my usual stories, so enjoy.
