    Xwriter Erotica Readers And Writers Association - Blog Posts



    I now write for the Erotica Readers and Writers Association blog. My posts appear on the 28th of each month. This month's post (February, 2013) is about my experiment with self-publishing. I also talk about promotions.

    Thanks. I'm probably going to come out with Part 2 in a couple of months to report what else I've learned about self-publishing.

    Read my new post at the Erotic Readers and Writers Association blog. Why it's important that a writer have a room of one's own. Hat tip to Virginia Woolf.

    March's article is now live. It's called "Don't Wait For Your Muse To Strike. You'll Wait Forever".

    Here's an excerpt:

    I recently read an article about the daily routines of famous writers, and it made me wonder about muses. Some writers, especially novice writers, occasionally say that they must wait for their muse to inspire them. The problem is that waiting for your muse to give you a kick in the pants means you'll wait forever, and you won't get any writing done. E. B. White said: "A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a work on paper." The actual day-to-day routine of writing isn't nearly as glamorous as suddenly feeling a lightning bolt of inspiration from your muse, jolting your creativity awake and sending you to your computer, hands busily typing away until The Masterpiece is born. It requires setting goals, making a routine, and establishing a support network.
    Enjoy!

    April's article is now live. It's called "Writing Using Strong Emotions".

    Here's an excerpt:

    I normally stuff my feelings. Old habit. I don't like feeling strong emotions because I'm afraid of losing control, which makes writing all the harder for me. Good writers regularly open a vein and empty it all over their computer screens. As Hemingway wrote, "There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."

    Read about my time at my first writer's retreat, the Stanley Hotel Writers Retreat. This is the hotel Stephen King stayed in that inspired him to write "The Shining". It was a horror writers retreat, but what I experienced applies to anyone looking for a writer's retreat. Read and enjoy!
