Write on the money....

This is a short but sweet post today. For those who don't know the joy of writing, please read this

http://lustbites.blogspot.com/2007/06/vicarious-living.html

Lust Bites is a blog from several erotica authors, one of whom I am priviledged to consider a friend. Yesterday Gwen Masters posted this wonderful piece about why we decide to write.

Whether it's erotica, science fiction, horror or romance, we all live vicariously through our characters. We live, breathe and think for them. I know that every character I write contains some of me in them. Writing, art, acting - it's all the same. It's a creative expression of self.

Not everyone will enjoy your interpretation of yourself, no matter the medium. And there are those that think it's easy to write something to be proud of. I have yet to have one story that has come out perfect the first time. That's what re-writes, and editing is for. My stories, poems - basically anything I write - go through at least three re-writes before I commit to showing them to ANYONE. And even then, they are subject to changes or additions as the mood strikes me. Which could be why I've never submitted anything for publication.

But that will soon change - I hope.

In the meantime, check out my sidebar, if you're not one of my regulars. There are some quite brilliant writers linked there, and I consider myself lucky to be friends with them.

Till next time kiddies....


Stay sane inside insanity ~ and never forget your towel.

I totally agree! You cannot create a work of art without leaving your fingerprints all over it. :)

Well, I'm not too big into erotica (not even Taylorotica) but one night, late at night, when I'm bemoning my single status and need some...um...well...okay...I'll just bookmark it...

MERI: It's amazing how many people think otherwise. Good puppy - here's a snack. :D

TRAV: Yeah, the ladies over at Lust Bites are great. And not just for the subject matter - also for some funny ladies check out We Three Bitches, and Boobs, Injuries and Dr. Pepper. Crystal will have you in stitches.

DANA: Well love, I meant just read the entry dear. LOL. But by all means bookmark it. They do talk about writing on there, not just sex. He he.

ANNDI: Thanks luv. I love reading your stuff as well. :D

BOND: Sidebar looks fine to me, except maybe my visitors are off centre, but I'm html ignorant when it comes to that stuff...
