Writing's Cool

So yeah.... discuss.

If your posting/writing contains explicit sex or erotica, please note that in the post title or the first line of the post. All discussions on A/N are open to all members, including minors and some prudes like me who blush too easily. Thanks in advance.

Kid, your writing sounds like fun. As an atheist I believe in nearly absolute tolerance. I don't care if you make it with platypuses; just leave my platypus alone. Just leave kids alone and don't willfully infect anybody.

As if there's a God who cares which hole we stick it in. It's just that gays don't make babies and for the Chruch it's a dead end. Check out my essay on this.

Mirror Reversal proposes that sex is one of the most important parts of life. Who are these clergypersons telling us what to do and not do.

Go Kid go!
Being hetero, I would have thought "meh, whatever" at the idea of a gay sex scene in a novel. Then I started reading Anne Rice. 8D

Mary, talking about a thick skin. Take this review a retired marine officer put on Amazon.

Crude and Offensive Story from an Atheist Point of View, May 3, 2008
By William T. Mcgee "Tom" (Springfield, IL USA) - See all my reviews

I found nothing in this book worth reading. I forced myself to look for something of value, but found myself wading through obscene language, offensive discourse, and perversion to disentangle the agenda of this book.

I crawled through the muck and found nothing but a faithless atheistic point of view leaking through the downward spiral of a character from sexual permissive, to strip club employee to prostitute. The story line and weird psychology the allegory was based on are pathetic negative nonsense.

This book is not worth the paper it was printed on.

I didn't get mad, 'cause I knew why he was so perturbed. I said some impious words about his Lord God.

Sure, I do describe some non-reproductive sex, and the guy went crazy. Ever notice, at least for Catholics, that sex must be for the purpose of making babies—otherwise, it's a mortal sin.

Well, Mary, there is an explicit sex scene in my fantasy/religious satire Polly!, if that counts. [g]

There's even a few double entendres. Something for everyone.

Well, if anyone's writing does include explicit sex or erotica, be sure and pm me so I don't miss it.
Comment by Rich Goss on August 18, 2009 at 12:34pm
Rich, for your information, double entendres score extra points but not double. That's not why they call them double entendres.

Getting ready to send out a story this afternoon to Analog, a sci-fi magazine that buys short stories. Wiosh me luck, I really could use the money. :D

Sorry to report that my writing hardly ever contains explicit sex or erotica, but I do get some sly double entendres off from time to time. Does that count?
Comment by Rich Goss on August 17, 2009 at 12:57pm
Welcome, Mary. We have quite a few writers here. Check out Diana Grave discussion above. She's in a similar situation. There is some excellent advice for new writers.

Greetings -
Would-be writer here with a few projects in the works, one of which is half finished and it can be a bitch and a half to overcome that writer's block to plow into the other half. I figure joining this group will A) help me get off my proverbial backside and B) provide yet more constructive advice, tips and feedback.
