Prompt # 2: How the other half live [Sep. 24th, 2004|11:08 pm]
Sexually frustrated writers

ksej
I know at least one member of this community is an avid slasher, so this prompt shouldn't pose any problems. Write a scene or a story involving two characters, both of whom are the opposite gender from you.

Don't forget to friends-lock anything you want to retain the first rights to.

Discussion: Typing one-handed [Sep. 18th, 2004|12:26 am]
Sexually frustrated writers

I once read, I think it was in the French Cosmopolitan, an article which interviewed a handful of romantic/erotic writers about their lives and working practices. With typical bluntness, it posed the question "Do you type one-handed?" (The answers were mostly along the lines of "I get satisfaction from my writing, but not necessarily sexual.")

I don't type one-handed in the literal sense. Apart from the location of the computer, I touch type, and that takes both hands. But I have been known to get turned on by a steamy scene. In fact, a few years ago, I took to writing erotic scenes to put myself in the mood.

I've found that a scene that's part of a larger story has less effect on me than a scene that's complete in itself. Maybe because I have to keep my attention partly fixed on the characters and the world; maybe because I get performance anxiety when I try to write something steamy with publication in mind.

What about you? Do you type one-handed?

Prompt # 1: Getting to know you [Sep. 10th, 2004|08:22 pm]
Sexually frustrated writers

To get a new community going, it's common to ask people to post a little bit about themselves: who they are, what they like and dislike. And I thought that sounded like a good start, but with a twist.

We're writers. Rather than introduce ourselves with a paragraph or two of exposition, we can dramatise those introductions in a scene. Tell me who you are and what you like and don't like with a scene or a story.

It doesn't have to be freshly-written. I came up with mine while I was mulling over how to get this community going, so it's only fair that you should be able to use something from the files that you think fits the bill. Just as long as it gets across who you are and especially what kind of territory you like to explore.

Don't forget to friends-lock anything you want to retain the first rights to.

Executive decision [Sep. 7th, 2004|03:10 pm]
Sexually frustrated writers

Since I've had no feedback on what to use this community for, I'm going to play the big dommy moderator and make the decision myself.

Every week, I'll post either a musemuggers-style prompt or a topic for discussion. I'll put the week's new post up on Friday evening, purely because that seems an appropriate time for a sexually frustrated writer to be posting. Expect the first post this Friday.

A welcome, and a call for discussion [Aug. 16th, 2004|10:11 pm]
Sexually frustrated writers

First of all, welcome to the Sexually Frustrated Writers' community. If you're sexually frustrated and a writer, you're in the right place. If you've come to mooch in the hopes of reading something hot, good luck to you, but you'd better at least give us some good critiques when you've finished.

I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with this community. One idea I had was something like musemuggers, with prompts to give you a few ideas and get you started. But maybe you've all got plenty of ideas already...

Certainly I'd like for this to be somewhere we can post things we've written, with or without crit requests. The friends-lock can save blushes as well as first rights here.

And maybe some discussion about writing erotica, being a sexually frustrated writer and how the two fit together.

These are only vague ideas at the moment. So it's over to you. What do you want this community to be?
