Summer Monday Status

Its week 31 of 52. Erotic Proclivities – Seasons is in the second round of rewrites. I will continue to let you know how well that project goes here on the blog.The blog has had two poems added last week. I have another two ready to be posted this week. And, I have started the new weekly serial. It’s a story of a librarian using her ‘friends’ to fight the upcoming budget cuts. There’s nothing like a little ‘hot and heavy’ action to sway some votes.

Weekly Serial – Literary Pleasures 01

There is an idea that’s starting to germinate in my mind. A story is starting to come together. A tale of a librarian / witch with a cadre of acolytes who must fight a penny pinching town counsel to maintain their club’s funding….

Literary Pleasures

Literary Pleasures

Winds of change were blowing storm clouds toward the sleepy little community of Rockport MA.

‘Young people are in need of knowledge these days,’ Alexa thought. ‘They can’t be serious about cutting our funding!’

The newly elected town counsel was packed with people determined to undermine the local schools to get large.property tax breaks and most of them were absentee landlords short sighted and didn’t give a damn about the community so long as those monthly checks kept coming in. Lead by that cheapskate Dorothy Potter, the board was pushing a austerity budget

Alexandria Collins knew she would be able to count on her cabal of acolytes she had been grooming these past four years. They had used their time last year in a ‘get out the vote’ campaign to help get Paul Stone elected to the council. So, Alexa had at least one vote in favor of a larger library budget. With a five member council, she should secure another three votes. But this would be a perfect time to see how much influence her magic could yield.

As she drew deeply on the hooka pipe letting its influence wash over her, she ran her hand along Betsy’s supine body. Having just spent themselves on the cushioned floor in Veronica’s sunroom, the librarian conspired with her young ingénue that the key to swinging the council vote may turn on only a few members.

With her position as the head librarian for the town of Rockport, Alexa had been very cognisant of using the library’s facilities to help studious teens expand their knowledge. Knowledge in a few precise arcane arts. The sect needed followers and young followers are the most devoted and zealous. It would be zeal that would win the coming battle with the town council.

“Betsy, get up and let’s have a good look at you.”

Betsy Braddock, 18 and well indoctrinated from the freshman year of school, now a senior and considered one if the schools top college bound.scholars, got up and slowly turned so that Alexa could take in all the charms the teen had to offer. Long lean legs a tight runners ass firm abs beautiful b cup breasts soft shoulders and a great head on them. Shoulder length brown hair brown eyes full lips that smiled expectantly, Betsy loved being ‘ displayed’.

“I think we should get the gang together,” Alexa said.

“I’ll get the club house ready,” Betsy replied, pouring herself into her skin tight jeans.

Poem Alert – Erotic Haiku

From the diary of Lady Hikari

A three stanza haiku, a woman, alone, with a jade idol.

Lady Hikari - Haiku

Lady Hikari – Haiku

 

 

Alone in this bed

With my lusts unsatisfied

My Love’s gone tonight

 

An idol of jade

Its hard long shaft slick with sex

Fills me with delight

 

I shudder inside

A wave of pleasure takes me

I feel myself alight

Poem Alert – the Tanka Experiment

submissiveTanka is a form of unrhymed Japanese poetry, with five sections structured in a 5-7-5-7-7 pattern of syllable similar to the haiku. What follows is a brief interaction between lovers in five stanzas each in the Tanka form.

5 – 7 – 5 – 7 – 7

How do you love me?

  • With all the passion in me

When shall you love me?

  • The moment these bonds release

Pity they never shall be!

_____________________________________

Another morning dawns

My passion wells within me

Open yourself dear

Receive my growing desire

Embrace my growing desire

____________________________________

Embrace my desire

Between your watering lips

My flesh firming there

Your lips and tongue delight me

Coaxing my essence from me

___________________________________

The touch of those lips

Gliding along my stiff cock

Waves of pleasure rise

Your wanton lust ignites me

I contain myself no more

___________________________________

How do you love me?

  • With my heart my soul my lips

Lips lifting loves light

  • How do you love me my love?

With all the passion in me!

Summer Monday Status

Its week 30 of 52. That means there are only 22 weeks left in this year. Like sands through the hourglass… Erotic Proclivities #3 has been approved and is posted. This clears that docket and I’m ready to compile the current set of four vignettes into a short eBook: Erotic Proclivities – Seasons. I will let you know how well that project goes here on the blog. I want to get this done and launched soon because I’m going to follow that up with the Caitlin story which I hope to output by the end of next month. I’m thinking that the best time to launch a Halloween themed story would be September.

As you can tell from the blog posts, there are two consecutive Monday Status posts in a row that I have once again not gotten much done here. That’s not to mean I have been idle, no! I have a couple of other blogs, one of which I’ve been busy catching up on. Oh the trials and tribulations of maintaining a presence on the web.. I’ll be re-posting a bunch of my stories to the Erotic Library.

In the meantime (blah blah blah blah-blah):

I HAVE finished the third round of edits to Erotic Proclivities #3. A vignette you might recall, submitted to lushstories.com, and they are STILL sticklers for good grammar.

525,600 Minutes – Finding Time to Write

minutesLately there’s this song that’s been going through my mind. It’s “Seasons of Love” from the show “Rent”. I’ve never seen the show or the movie, perhaps I should, but the line “five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes, to measure a year”, recurs in the chorus of the song. Measuring the year in minutes, and how we choose to use those minutes is the focal point of the song, and I suppose a sub plot of the movie/show. But lately I have been thinking about how it is that I use my time.

It’s been said that time is the great equalizer of men, rich or poor, young or old, no matter your position in this life. We are all granted twenty four hours, or in this example, twenty four times sixty minutes a day. How do we employ those minutes? How do we deploy those minutes? How best to use today’s minutes to make tomorrows minutes worth that much more? Because, tomorrow brings with it a hole fresh set of these precious minutes provided we are lucky enough to be blessed with a tomorrow.

Are we finding time to write, then finding time to rewrite? We often talk in terms of ‘finding time’ as if our minutes are hiding somewhere and we have to go chasing after them. Instead, we need to keep the mindset of ‘making time’ for writing. How can we make time? We take those minutes we spend on other things (In my case it’s the minutes being used to passively watch the tele) and MAKE them writing minutes. Minutes invested in developing our skill, honing our craft.

We need to make time for writing because there are no ‘new’ minutes to find. Each one of us, young or old, rich or poor, has only 525,600 minutes to measure a year.
