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
Tonight I was planning on going old-school with my ‘H’ inspiration as heart. And I was planning to go down a more positive route. But inspiration isn’t really hitting tonight and, what I really want to do, is introduce you to my current main character, Katherine Montgomery. This is a scene from my current work-in-progress that … Continue reading (Broken) Heart
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
Day seven and I’m still here, although it’s been a long day and I almost forgot today’s post! Let’s hope I get it finished before I fall asleep! Today is ‘F’ day and, after much internal deliberation, the word inspiration for the day is ‘French kiss’ and is used in a little flash fiction. “Crap, … Continue reading French kiss
Today’s post is brought to you by the letter ‘E’… and the ‘e’ word, escort. A few months ago I read an article on a male escort service operated by two women from Melbourne, Australia. I was intrigued, and I've been following their blog (dearaphroditeblog.blogspot.com.au) for a while now (an excellent source of inspiration!). So … Continue reading Escort.
Welcome to ‘D’ day. Today’s inspiration, brought to you by the letter ‘D’, is danse du ventre. The English translation of danse du ventre is belly dance. There are, apparently many conflicting theories as to when and where belly dance originated, but it is thought to be one of the oldest forms of dance, and … Continue reading Danse du Ventre
Today’s ‘C’ word is cheating… and I’m introducing you to Greta Jones in a little dialogue exercise (and yes, I'm also slightly cheating as I've had this piece written for a while!). Greta is 24 and works as a secretary in a small law office in a small country town. She’s married to James Jones and … Continue reading Cheating.
