If there is one thing I enjoy about creative writing, it is developing a story from the germ of an idea. There may be a conversation, a situation, an object of interest or some other means of opening the tale, but from there it can go in any direction—or several directions.
When writing a thriller or romance, novel or short story, a certain portion of the author’s persona is introduced, be it fractional or substantial. This may not be intentional, but it happens, and I believe this is even truer in erotica. Writing about sexual activities is far away from experiencing them, but if you are a writer it adds pleasure to the task if you imagine being involved in the tale.
In my next erotic novel, Sharing, the central character, Ron uses his vivid imagination in his work, and he’s successful enough to have regular clients. Candice is his stunning wife, and she too is successful in her profession, which takes her away from home occasionally. Ron’s one close friend outside of the marriage is Alan, and their friendship goes away back.
Other characters are introduced as the story develops, but there are ups and downs, as you would expect from any tale, but they are described with more intimacy and in more of a physical sense when it’s erotica—if it’s mine.
What can the reader expect to find in this story?
I’d hate to spoil the surprises in store, so I’ll just say there is a healthy mix of activity, and there is a lot more shared than simply ideas of the next position to use in bed.
Sharing has many connotations, but I like to think that authors are doing that very thing when they publish their work. Apart from stories, sharing can be an idea, an object, accommodation, wealth, a relationship, a friendship and more besides. It is from this premise that my story, Sharing was born, and as you’ll see if you read it—sharing can be used for pleasure, and taken to extremes.
My target publication date is 1st December. This will see the climax of many months of effort … and of course pleasure in taking the characters from their embryonic state to fully functioning participants in my tale.
