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.
via Daily Prompt: Lifestyle
For these Two LoveBirds, lifestyle means enjoying the moment. It means trying to be close to the present, trying to stay close to nature and beauty. It means we take the time to enjoy the lovely glimpses of peace that are right here, right now, surrounding us. Like this:
For us, lifestyle is about joy and presence, and enjoying every moment we are lucky enough to share together.
Love and light to all! Wishing you all a beautiful and relaxing day ❤
via Daily Prompt: Yarn
Ah, today is such a lovely day. Up here, in the strange northern climate where these TwoLovebirds live, it has been so hot in the past few days. But today I woke up and it was nice and cool. A lovely respite from the twenty-something sweltering heat. Now what better thing is there to do in cool weather than knit?
I was totally thrilled with today’s prompt ‘Yarn’. Yarn is amazing! One can truly unleash the imagination through it. It is cozy and lovely, comforting and enjoyable. It makes beautiful gifts, charity material, all ways to spread positivity in the world around us, all while instilling a sense of peace and joy in the maker.
The Quilt I’m working on in this image is an old, persistent project. It’s made of unwanted strands from local thrift stores. It’s made from odds and ends left over from beloved projects. I’ve been working on it for so long that it’s become an enjoyable companion, a living piece of my personal history nestled next to me as I knit the final border around it. When it is finished, it will not only be a blanket. It will be the quilt that me and my wife have already slept underneath on cool knights when the other blankets were not enough. The blanket we snuggled beneath on the couch while i was knitting it. The blanket that she encouraged me to finish despite the immensity of it.
That is what knits carry. Love, patience, hard work, and a story.
