Welcome back @Jenny HJ!

I think those are excuses, you just didn't want to write erotica ;D

Yep, I wasn't sure I could do non-human erotica. Although now i think about it...

I also finished my  first draft WIP, and am half way though first-pass editing. Ohh and I did a winning camp na-no. So I've been writing. I Just didn't have extra brain capacity to devote to a decent short story :)

Made it this time. Love it when an idea springs to mind and develops quickly  :)

This one is a little inspired by a game I recently finished.
Check out my book 'Prince of Fiends' here: http://amzn.eu/4l5M7OO
Follow Prince Leon Atlantus as he forms a dangerous friendship with his captors, while held hostage across a world headed for war...

Already 3 entries? What sorcery is this?  :o ;D

I've got some ideas percolating, but nothing set in stone yet. (Pun fully intended.)

I've finally got my idea, but it may be more horror than fantasy. I guess I'll actually have to write the thing to find out.

I'm very happy with horror tbh.

Welcome back @Jenny HJ!

I think those are excuses, you just didn't want to write erotica ;D

Maybe we should make every month for the rest of the year past themes but erotica.  Earth erotica for this month?  for those of us who like to share: Story Circle Erotica, weird fetishes? Rebirth/Renewal Erotica, for those of us who's lovers need batteries: Magic and Technology Erotica or Alien Artifact Erotica, for those of us who have low self esteem: Small Magics Erotica, and uhhh for my relatives in the back hills? Through the Beast's Eye Erotica

I just posted it. My first story of any kind since January. Yay!
“They stopped his mouth with dirt” turned out to be a good starting point for me.
And somehow, poor Wardmuligan got mixed up in it after surviving two other stories of mine so nicely.

Felt so great to be writing again.

@Slaykomimi , I noticed that you say you didn't have time to review your entry, but the thread is still open until Saturday, so feel free to edit it until then :)

Can't wait. The drawback of posting early, especially after voting for a month where I had to read only 3 stories... is that it does drag! Forced to work on my WiPs goddammit!

And I can’t wait for the next prompt. My writing brain has turned back on and needs fuel.

Anyone doing their finishing touches on an Earth story, or can I lock the thread?
