Writer’s Block – Ways to Beat It #AtoZChallenge

Writer’s block happens to everyone. From third graders and their book reports, journalists, college students and especially authors who are writing on deadlines.

Writer’s block is generally caused by conflicted feelings. What we are...

V for Virginial and other (incorrect assumptions) #AtoZchallenge

E for enticement #A-ZChallenge

One of the best things about being an erotica writer is I get to talk *enticement*, and I get to talk about it as if it’s something I’m only writing about out of basic interest, when in truth I’m a linguist – I love language, I love talking about it and I love looking at the differences between language usage in different places. Prepare for the geeky part en·tice transitive verb \in-ˈtīs, en-\ To attract...
