When you can't sleep...

What do you do when you can't sleep? Got any good tricks for me? I read until my brain stops working. Sometimes that doesn't work. Then I write, relax muscles in order along my body, drink Sleepy Time tea, soak in a bath. The last couple of nights nothing seems to be working, so I tried something new. I visualised an old memory, drew myself into it, analysed thoughts, feelings, tried to get inside the scene as if I was writing it... and you know what? I fell asleep! Yep, in the middle of making out in a spa... I slept. Hope I didn't drown!!

When the past catches you up...

Have you ever got a point in your life when the past has caught you up? I'm there now. It's a bit freaky but good for the soul (or so I've heard).

This week, not one, but 4 people from my past have popped back up - larger than life. In the past 6 months, add another 3. That's a lot of people crossing paths with mine again. Is it Fate? Karma? Life?

It stirs up old memories... and what do you do with them? I turn them into stories!! My memories can be strong. At times I can see their face, smell them, taste them (well, those I got that close to!)... but their past self (ten, twenty years ago self).

Why does it happen? Why do you not think about them or that event for years, and then suddenly, it's in the front of your mind, as if it happened yesterday?
Does writing make you live in your memory so much that it haunts you? Or am I just weird?

The waiting is over

I gave in and emailled to ask who had won December... and it wasn't me :-(

Hotel Honeys was the most popular story. I think it was the salesman who was in a motel and went to get ice and perved on some girls having sex, and then joined them. I may not be right but that's what my memory tells me!

So... are threesomes more popular than male-female sex?

I entered a threesome story in February... so I'll see if it makes it through.

Waiting... like sexual tension

Waiting, waiting waiting. That's me at the moment. I open my email with half-dread, half-longing. Is it possible that I could win the December contest? I would love to and I thought the story was strong. The downside is that I don't have many friends or family to vote for me... and it was down the bottom of the list so it may not have got too many votes.

It's like the build up of sexual tension. Usually you get to breaking point and then... orgasm. And that makes it all worthwhile!! But what if the sex is bad? What if you have to fake the orgasm? Was the sexual tension worth the effort then?

Happy New Year

Welcome 2010!

New Year's Resolutions -
  • Web page (which didn't get done on the holidays)
  • more short stories
  • try to submit a short story a month to Mainstream Erotica (especially if I can manage to win December... haven't heard anything yet and I'm so impatient)
  • enter an anthology - maybe the one due end of Feb
  • have wild sex... often

How about you? Any NY resolutions?
