NaNo Lessons Last —

ForgivenessThe hardest part of NaNo, and something I’ve been struggling with as a goal for this year, is forgiveness. As a writer, as an artist, I logically know that my vision isn’t going to just fall from me onto my screen in its perfect form conveying all the emotions and depth of feeling that I […]

NaNo Lessons Four —

There Are No More Wants, Only NeedsI wanted to be lazy. I wanted to watch TV all day in my pajamas. I wanted to write something, but not my novel. Anything else besides my damn novel. I wanted to clean my room, to unpack my suitcase, to wash clothes. I wanted to organize my rope, […]

NaNo Lessons Three —

An Excerpt —

~ erotica ~[Note: The following is an excerpt from my NaNoWriMo project.  Enjoy…] I knelt on the ground, my head bent down, naked, waiting. He told me to wait. Told me he would be back. But when he’d be back I did not know. The chain around my neck, and it’s lock by the top […]

The Cowboy (1 of 4) —

~ erotica ~He dragged her behind him, her wrists bound, his sweaty bandanna covering her eyes. She stumbled over the uneven ground but always kept herself upright as he hurriedly led her to his favorite spot. Stopping, he shoved her down to the ground, her knees landing on the wet earth, straw and mud now […]
