I am a very busy person. I am also a highly organised person, so normally I am quite capable of juggling all my different responsibilities. But recently we have found out that we have to move house, so this has given me another ball to juggle. I find it becoming harder to keep all balls in the air. (more…)
I am interested in your opinion. What do you prefer? To watch porn or to read it? I guess there are benefits and drawbacks to both. Personally I prefer reading porn. You can do it discretely anywhere you want to, especially if you have a Kindle or other e-reader. And for me I like the fact that I get to use my imagination. (more…)
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I know it is just a commercial holiday, designed to make people spend money on cards and champagne and chocolates, but I like it nevertheless. I will be spending the night with bubblies, chocolates and Mr Isa, having lots of sex. We do that on other nights too, but Valentine’s Day gives us the excuse to do it during the week. (We do have sex during the week, don’t worry, just not bubblies.)
So how are you spending Valentine’s Day? With a special someone or alone with a special something? However you are spending it, I hope it involves lots of orgasms!
I am really enjoying my sexual (re)awakening. As I have mentioned before on my blog, I had some health issues which prevented me from really enjoying sex, but now they have been dealt with I seem to be unstoppable. It is as if I am trying to make up for lost time. (more…)
I can’t believe it is the end of January already. Time really does fly when you are having fun. And January has been a lot of fun. I feel I have really accomplished a lot this month. Let me do a quick round up. (more…)
Dance like no one is watching.
I love that saying. I try to live by it as well. I love dancing and I do far too little of it. I don’t really go out dancing that often anymore – really only at the office Chrismas party – but when I do, you can’t get me off the dance floor. And I don’t care who watches. It has always been a dream of mne to learn how to pole dance, but I am too old and weak to learn that now. Alas, a missed opportunity. (more…)
I was having a conversation with my new friend. We are both budding erotica writers and were chatting about erotic language. In bantering with me, she described herself as a dirty slut. I was taken aback. For me, the word “slut” had negative connotations and I was uncomfortable with her use of the word. (more…)
I am doing some research about sex in Victorian times for a book I am writing and it’s fascinating. Reading the Victorian magazine The Pearl online gives a great insight in what people found sexy or acceptable in that time. There were a few things that struck me in reading The Pearl and I would like to discuss some of them. (more…)
I am happiest when I am writing. November is my best month in terms of mental health as I participate in NaNoWriMo and I allow myself to write my heart out. But when the month is over my resolve to keep writing every day slackens. Part of it is the loss of community, the loss of being held accountable for the amount of words I write each day. (more…)
My year has gotten off to a good start: I have been accepted for the New Writer’s Scheme of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. In addition to the usual RNA member benefits members of the New Writer’s Scheme are invited to submit a manuscript for a critique. The deadline for this is 31 August. Which gives me 8 months to write and edit a book for submission. Which is great, because I love deadlines! I am so pleased to have applied and to have been accepted; it feels like I am finally taking my writing seriously. Which I am of course, but rather than just saying it, I am actually doing it.
I have also subscribed to Mslexia, a quarterly writers magazine for women. They also run an online writers community which I will have access to so that should be good. And I have decided to enter a short story in their competition in March. So yay, lots of fun writerly things to look forward to.
