Last night I almost finished a novel. There was a lot of world, a lot of domination (heh heh heh) so I feel like my puddy cat – a world dominator. Rawr. * cracks whip *
Last night – who knows if I’m actually going to keep any of it that I wrote? But it was a revelation, a Bam! Here’s the plot! And a ‘whoa, that’s where this has been going’.
For you see, last November I tried writing a novel. It failed most spectacularly. A few weeks ago, I tried rewriting it. And Lo! Behold! Something entirely different was produced. Different setting, different dynamics, different most everything.
Ah, I told myself, this is an entirely new story.
But Lo! Behold again! Last night’s writing careened, swerved, and aimed straight to land where last November’s book had started.
That’s right. Without knowing it, I was writing the back-drop/prequel to the other novel. Now of course it isn’t a perfect fit but damn it’s close.
Isn’t it fascinating what can happen when we let the stories decide where they’re going?! I’m just so excited for this new story – it will probably be published sometime next year or late this year – but I might definitely start teasing you all about it before that! I’ve already got several drawings up and ready for it, muahahaha.

Even if just for a moment
Even if just for a glance
Even if just for a shimmer.
We’ve been terribly ill and out of sorts. Here’s us checking back in, trying to write some more happy and decadent things and get back in touch with y’all. We sincerely apologize if we haven’t been answering, commenting, or interacting. Hopefully we’ll be able to keep up with y’all again for a little longer this time around!
Stay warm and fuzzy – TwoLoveBirds
via Daily Prompt: Precipice
As a lesfic writer currently slaving away at stories of two women madly in love (oh, woe is me!) certain words just make me giggle when I read them. ‘Precipice’ just happens to be one of those. Why? Because it could mean so much.
It could mean a moment, a special glance of the eyes that plunge the action onward. It could be that touch, that one caress, that tips the pleasure over the edge. It could be those words, those special and tender ones, that send the relationship spiraling to new heights.
It could be so many things. At least, that’s what the mind of a lovebird thinks.
So, decadent readers, what does ‘precipice’ mean to you?
via Daily Prompt: Pursue
To pursue. How does one do that? Well, first of all you ponder and pause. You put together a plan of action. Then, you reel them in.
You entice, You can chase, but the best pursuit is one where you do not appear to be the pursuer. You make them pursue you.
And then, when they least expect it…
You place your demands! You claim your cuddles and belly rubs! Miaouw!
Hahaha, have a lovely day everyone!
via Daily Prompt: Temporary
Temporary. what is more temporary than the fleeting pleasure of a caress, the flying burst of an orgasm? We can try and express it, try and re-experience it for ourselves. But it is something so so passing that it is difficult to grasp. What does it feel like? What does it taste like, experience itself as?
A writer may struggle indefinitely with these concepts, for sexual pleasure is an extremely difficult thing to describe well. I think it is so difficult partly because erotic pleasure is one of the most sensual and beautiful things a human can experience in their lifetime. This sets the bar pretty high on what the author has to recreate. But it is the temporary aspect of it that makes it difficult to grasp. Even for ourselves, if we choose to do some ‘research’ (heheh), we are caught up in the moment. All that we are left with is memories of a fleeting sweetness, the ghost of a caress.
If one chooses to describe wine, for example, it is an easier thing to do. A taste lingers in the mouth and notes can be taken. It may taste like raspberries, it may be pungent. But of the erotic? It is passionate, sweet, wild, – yet it passes so quickly over us that it may feel like the blink of an eye. And so, its special quality often slips beyond the expanse of words and floats in a nebulous prism. We want it- yet we cannot describe it.
via Daily Prompt: Exposed
Writing, especially erotica, is all about exposing your characters. We want our readers to see them as they are, to define a moment and describe it in luscious detail- but to a point.
Oh no, here’s where it gets complicated.
As writers, you must consider what you are exposing. Are you comfortable sharing it? Are you comfortable writing about such things? Worse, does it detract from your scene or build it? There is much to consider before setting pen to paper (or fingers to keys in the case of a laptop).
Hmm… so much to think about.
Much like a photograph, a good story is tailored and narrowed to portray exactly what one wants. It is a precise, lovely, and (we hope) perfect glimpse into an array of emotions. To do this, you need to know before hand what, and how, you are exposing.
Once more, we publish! Don’t worry, it’s not a parody this time! Warrior and Waitress is a fantasy story featuring steamy encounters. We hope you enjoy it!
