You can write erotica too!

04 Apr

In one of my previous posts, I showed you a picture of myself holding this vintage magazine, and I mentioned that aside from the fact that I loved the cover, its image sparked ideas in my mind about erotica writing. You can see the previous post here.

Although making decent freelance money from erotica and Kindle ebooks is very hard (as it has always been for most forms of writing for literally hundreds of years), I think that anybody who can write a basic sentence can explore erotica writing for their own pleasure, if not monetary profit. It’s always preferable that somebody knows how to write well, but one of the things I’ve learned over the years is that even if the prose style is weak and the grammar shaky, nonetheless if a person puts his or her heart and loins into a piece of horny prose, it can often successfully stimulate the reader. So whatever your level of skill with words…you can write erotica, too.

So gaze at this magazine cover. Click on it until it’s large on your screen (it’s best viewed on a computer for maximum impact), and immerse yourself in the lady’s face…her lips…her eyes…her gestures…her cleavage…and her fur-trimmed sweater. What do you hear her saying to you? What do you hear yourself saying? It’s a great picture because it lends itself to almost any kind of scenario–vanilla, kinky, or in-between.

The way to write anything, but especially fiction because it’s imaginary and takes place in your head, is to find a way “into” the story.  I frequently do it by imagining what I’m hearing a character saying…or by imagining what a character feels like, both physically and emotionally. Hmm, what would it be like to slip my hands into that open sweater to reach for the concealed nipples? And so the story begins! How did I meet this gal? What does she say to me? Or does she say anything? Does she let my wandering hands continue to wander, or does she get kinda nasty and say something like…? See, those are my “femdom” “femme fatale fantasies” coming into play! But what are YOUR fantasies? They will form the basis for your tale.

Enjoy this picture, let your mind “see” and “hear” what situations it suggests to you, and before you know it, you’ll have yourself a story!

    Thanks Neil. Had thought about it for sometime but have a lot of doubts regarding this in my mind. If possible, please share your email id.

      Give it a try, scrolllock, you might enjoy it. Just get a story down and see how it turns out. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just have fun with it.

      By the way, your blog has some cool pix of the femdom stuff in Indian films! Looks like a popular theme.

      I have an email address listed at the end of the portfolio section on this blog entitled “What Can I Do For You?”

      Thanks for leaving a comment!
