Community dead? [07 Dec 2006|03:43pm]

I just recently got through a long-standing bout of literary impotence and wrote my first full-on sex scene, clumsy though it may be! (Then my computer died, leading me to believe possibly that the sex was too hot for the aging laptop to handle, but that's another story.)

How? I am lucky to be married to someone who is also my beta-reader, and who also writes amazing smut. I thought I'd share the advice that was my literary viagra, although I absolutely can't take credit for any of it!

1. Do not feel the need to abandon the style of the rest of the fic. If the rest of the story consists of snarky vignettes, do not go all epically Harlequin for in the bedroom; write a bitchy, snarky sex scene. If your story is mostly humor, then include humor in the sex bits, too.

2. If the story has been relying heavily on dialog so far, write the dialog for the sex scene first.

2b. If you feel like the characters aren't being chatty enough during teh Pr0n, get them a little bit drunk.

3. Do not feel the need to describe every detail and every action. Picture things in your head, and only write about the things that you find really sexy. Gloss over the mechanical description of other things.

4. Do not feel like you need to have a sex scene at all. If it's not coming to you, maybe that's because the story is fine without one, or would be well served by a fade to black. (Unfortunately, that only works if you're not writing it for a gift exchange where someone requested that it be sexy!)

I felt particularly good about this advice after reading a romance novel which has some great UST and then a bad sex scene (where he comes but she doesn't) with a "fade to black" for round two where he promises to make it worth her while. I totally loved the story and didn't feel cheated at all - in fact, I appreciated it more because it wasn't ALL ridiculously perfect dual-orgasms rainbows-of-bliss.

I am sad this community is deserted, because really, smut-writer's block is way worse than regular writer's block, and it was hard getting over it. Hope this helps others who are browsing through trying to get unblocked!
4* Aye! Avast!

Will Write for Food? [04 Jul 2006|05:07pm]

What follows verbatim is an e-mail posted to craigslist's "writing gigs" subscription list back on 5 June 2006. Written in response to several writers who had objected to the number of solicitations for writers to write for free (receiving, instead of payment, the glow that comes from having your work published or produced by organizations that advertise via craigslist), it sadly demonstrates how writers in particular, and artists as a whole, are perceived by many of the individuals who employ us.

I am getting a bit fed up with all these belly-aching writers. Of course writing is not profitable! It's an art! Can you imagine if all the painters and collage-makers complained as much as you do about not being rich? ...Listen "writers": you do it cause you love it. If you are looking to pay your rent then be a plumber. None of your favorite writers made a living doing what the world remembers them for, instead they were doctors (chekhov), or postal workers (bukowski), or installing air conditioners (vonnegut) ...writers who complain about not getting paid enough are like firemen who don't feel like people refer to them enough as heroes-- which is to say they are doing it for the wrong reasons. just because you write does not entitle you to literary attention-- it doesn't mean you are talented. i'm beginning to think it doesn't even mean you like writing.

so please, paying gigs and non-paying gigs-- keep 'em coming-- but can we try to keep the self-righteous whining to a minimum??


So the toils of plumbing, doctoring, postal work, and installing air conditioners are worthy of payment -- but not writing? And note how diabolically it's suggested that if you expect to be paid for your artwork, you're "doing it for the wrong reasons." Unfortunate, however, are the examples cited, as Chekhov, Bukowski, and Vonnegut all went on to enjoy lucrative writing careers.

They didn't achieve that status by accepting the wrongheaded notion that they should write for free.

Um, I just joined, so I thought I'd say hi. There doesn't seem to be much activity around here. I write in a lot of different fandoms, but I tend to get blocked or at least need some type of push in the right direction. I hope this community gets a little livelier in the future.
