Morning Thought: The Power of Lists

To work efficiently, you have to know what you’re doing. This is especially true if you’re doing something as time consuming as writing – even if that writing’s erotic – not all sex scenes are over in two minutes, after all. So here’s a piece of advice I was given a long time ago that’s transformed my life.

Morning Thought: Getting to Know Commissioned Characters

One of the things I love the most about writing for commission is the fact that I get to meet and know so many new characters. Exploring what makes them unique and why they are the way they are is one of the greatest pleasures for me when it comes to writing.

Morning Thought: Giving your Characters, Character

Melodrama’s fine, and it does have a place, but when it comes to erotica, the more real your characters seem, the more relatable they’ll be. You want that relatability in your story and this is how I avoid ‘going purple’ in my work.

Morning Thought: Originality in Erotica

How about I ask you to come up with an entirely new sexual position? Could you do it? No? So why are you worrying about your writing? We all know there are no new positions, only new ways to experience them, so apply the same logic to your writing. What makes your story unique, is you, and you’re enough.

Morning Thought: Don’t know where to start with your erotica? I’ve got you!

Erotica isn’t an easy genre to write for, but it is extremely satisfying. I know how daunting starts can be and I also know that sex scenes are very intimidating. But the way to get over your fear, is to face it. Find your characters voice by throwing them into a scenario and discovering what they do next!
