Aged Out

Goodbye Mr. Vachss

On the heels of Anne Rice and Joan Didion dying at the tail end of the year, I learned that another of my favorite writers, Andrew Vachss died, on December 27th. A man who wrote “hardboiled” crime novels, comics, short stories, song lyrics, and plays,...

Step Back, Shut Up, Fuck Off

Photo by Markus Winkler on Unsplash I began this one initially as a plea to playwrights. Having had the pleasure of seeing a bunch of my one-acts produced across the U.S. (even some of a more ‘adult’ nature) I thought maybe I could pass along...

De-balling, Retracting and Playing It Safe: How Cultural Inclusionary Language Is Killing Sex Writing

I Seduce You; You Seduce Me

The Seduction of a Story This is the first of a three-part article specifically aimed at you, my fellow naughty scribes. Indeed, we are like most fiction writers in that we endeavor to simply tell a good story, build rich, interesting characters, set time and...

Climaxing All Over Your Pages

Assuming none of your characters reached orgasm during your foreplay scene (which is as legitimate a way to write it as any other) or didn't get through the seduction and realize they didn't really like one another when all was said and done, you...

Write, Revise, Morph, and Repeat

Far be it from me, or even you, to determine what it is you are writing until you write it. And even then, you may write a thing, get it all revised, polished and maybe even sell it for a pretty penny, and still...
