Anonymous asked: As an inspiring erotica writer is there any advice on the amount of details one should put into an erotica novel?

First of all, thanks for the question! It’s so cool to be asked for advice!

As for erotica… oh boy. Well, while I personally have never tried my hand at writing erotica, as a reader, I’ve found that I want enough details to make the scene be distinguishable from any other erotic scene.

One of the biggest problems I have with erotic novels and scenes are that they can focus so much on the what-goes-where of the sex that the feelings and little details that the protagonist notices get lost. I know that as a reader, I personally don’t want to read about the exact details of how sex happens; if I wanted that, I’d look in a textbook. What I DO want are the details that make this character’s sexual encounter unique and interesting, what makes it something that he or she will remember.

Talk about the way the male lead refuses to look her in the eyes, or his penchant for silk sheets. Give us details that make us feel like we’re there and like this erotic scene is too important and unique for our interest to be pulled away by anything else.

So, to answer your question, in terms of the mechanics of sex, don’t stress the details. If your audience is old enough to read erotic novels, then they’re old enough to know how sex works. In terms of the little things that make the story unique to the protagonist, then they are absolutely important. The more of those, the better, in my opinion, so long as they’re relevant to the scene or the story (ie, the two people in the midst of coitus probably shouldn’t start discussing physics for no good reason).

I hope that helps! Message me with any other questions, or if I didn’t quite hit on what you were asking!

Let’s get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun. Your job isn’t to find these ideas but to recognize them when they show up.

Recap of Revolution: Shit Happens

To the Revolution fanatics, and to my fellow writer friends, I wrote a recap for the Revolution Fan Site I now write for. Check it out (especially if you watch the show) and let me know what you think! Disagree with me on anything? Let me know in the comments! Don’t care about Revolution and just want to say hi? That’s fine too.

Basically, just read it!

It’s All About Revolution

I’ve been traveling all over the eastern sea board this past week due to various familial obligations, and I completely forgot I have a pretty cool announcement: I got a writing internship. And it’s because of Tumblr. 

Remember that article I wrote, An Argument for the Renewal of Revolution? Well someone from the TV Film News Revolution Fan Site saw it, liked it, and asked me to come and write for them.

Fandom has now, quite literally, aided in building my resume. I’ll be sure to mention that to my parents the next time they gripe about how often I’m on “that blue website thing.”

So if you love Revolution, check out the Revolution Fan Site I’m now writing for and leave a comment telling me what you think. My first article just went live last night, and I could not be more excited about this!

I’ll occasionally link articles I’ve written here if I really like the way they turned out, or whatnot, but I’ll continue to keep posting the literary quotes and quips that a lot of you look forward to, don’t worry.

Thank you to everyone who passed around my original post, and I can’t wait to write more and discuss Revolution with the rest of the fandom on the Revolution Fan Site!
