Recently I entered a five thousand word story in the inaugural Romance Writers of Australia Spicy Bites competition. The competition required a romantic short story, with a 'happy ever after' or a 'happy for now' ending, and a sexually explicit storyline. It also required writers to include the specified theme of 'tattoos.' I wrote a … Continue reading Winner winner chicken dinner!
Today’s A to Z Challenge inspiration is brought to you by the letter ‘W’ and the word ‘warm’. It’s a little more of Gabriella and Antonio. If you haven't caught up with them, the beginning of their story started in the post for 'E’ and continued with ‘I’. Warm. I felt warm from the top … Continue reading W for Warm
Whoops. Behind again… But I’ve not missed 5 posts in a row yet. Almost but not quite. And that means I’m still in it. Just! That said, we’re looking at another composite posting today, covering letters S, T, U and V. And out of some choices… I’ve gone with spoon, tease, unprotected and voluptuous for … Continue reading S, T, U and V
It’s Q day… and that doesn’t make for a lot of word-based inspiration. Sex-Lexis had some really ugly ‘Q’ based words (check out quandong, queeb and quail for some particularly iffy ones). Reading the list, and seeing quaaludes, I was thinking back to a book I read many years ago called Facades by Stanley Levine … Continue reading Q…
I’m starting this post with an apology… I may have over-extended myself this month! I’m not sure why I thought taking on the A to Z Challenge while working a full time job and trying to navigate caring for my mum was a good idea but here I am, late again. Whoops. Maybe that is … Continue reading M, N, O and P!
Lascivious. Inclined to lustfulness. Wanton. Lewd. Arousing sexual desire. Indicating sexual interest or expressive of lust or lewdness. Welcome to ‘L’ day on the A to Z Challenge. A little 300 word scene starter that may be continued tomorrow. Fastening the black lace between her breasts, she smoothed her hands down over the soft chiffon … Continue reading Lascivious
It’s ‘K’ day in the A to Z Challenge and I’ve decided to go back to the beginning of my flash fiction journey. I wrote today’s little snippet as my first entry in a flash fiction competition. I didn’t win (I did win the Virgin Award for my first time in the competition) but I … Continue reading Kitchen
I’m catching up! I certainly wasn’t expecting to be writing this at 9:23 pm today, but I’m here and I am. Today (well, yesterday) was ‘J’ day in the A to Z Challenge and today’s inspiration is jewellery. Who doesn't love jewellery. And even more so, who doesn't love Tiffany’s (this first photo is actually … Continue reading Jewellery
Whoopsie. I’m a day late and a dollar short… well, just a day late. As always, I had good intentions but my Friday went a little more pear shaped than I had anticipated, so I didn't get to post. And then I had good intentions of doing it first thing this morning, but that didn't … Continue reading Illicit
I’m so tired! It’s been a long few weeks here, and between trying to keep up at home, at work and with my writing, all I really want to do is crawl into bed and stay there for an extended period of time. It’s been such a… grind. Which leads me to today’s ‘G’ word … Continue reading G is for Grind
