Sex Writing: How to Write Naughty Dialogue

The Art of Writing Dirty Dialogue for Erotica Writers What somebody says can be just as interesting and downright disgustingly perverted (in a good way) as what they do. Or so I try to write in my fiction. Sure, there are those scenes where I...

EROTICA OR PORN: THAT IS THE QUESTION…OR IS IT?

picture capture credit: from the 2015 film Fifty Shades of Grey You say tomato, I say, shut the hell up about tomatoes already. Really, when it comes down to the oft considered distinction between erotica and porn, I have no idea what the...

Please don’t hate me, Grammarly, but I really don’t give a f***

I just hit a “Centenary Superhero” milestone with Grammarly (don’t worry, I didn’t know what it was either). In using the basic grammar program, which I do indeed recommend, I get reports on my writing from the company all the time. In addition to...

Write What You Know? Creating Erotic Fantasies

Ok, confession time. Not everything I write falls into that 'Write What You Know" category. Especially in erotica writing, I'd either have to be very lucky and, by extension, exceedingly exhausted, to do all of what I write. My most favorite writer,...

The subject I am tackling in this installment can add up to quite the sticky wicket when it comes to erotic writing (and God knows, not everybody likes their wicket all that sticky). In one's naughty scribbling, especially in the adult fiction one creates,...

How Do You Create Naughty Characters?

My answer to the question I asked in the title here is simple: damned if I know! The people who come to populate my fiction, plays, poems and lyrics, be they naughty men, women, robots or alien lifeforms (or not) are as much amalgamations...

What Did You Say?-Making Money Via Audio Books

Just as eBook came to print, audio comes to eBook (and yes, print) as both another way to enjoy a story or 300-page tome and as a separate revenue stream for a writer. And the beauty of audiobooks, at least so far in my...

I Hate My Shameless Self-Promotion

I have mentioned this before, in this column, to friends, in erotica writing classes I come to teach, commiserating with my bestie, fellow fantastic naughty scribe, M. Christian (who also happens to be my co-host on the podcast Licking Non-Vanilla); I am very uncomfortable...

Writers Chill! A Lesson in Humility: Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously

Here's a joke from Steven King that I'm slightly paraphrasing:  A priest, a nun, and a rabbit walk into a bar. The rabbit looks around and says, "I think I'm a typo." That's writer's humor for ya. Thank God somebody in this godforsaken shutdown anything-but-normal 'new' normal...
