#MondayMotivation Status Update – Week 18

What can I say, April can be a tough month for my production. So much is going on at the store AND I am busy preparing taxes for paying clients. So I am often running out of time. This is evident in the monthly stats. Facebook followers are up only 1%; Twitter followers are down 2%; and I’ve actually lost one WordPress follower. WordPress views for April are down 44% from March, though March was up 852% over February. Posting Limericks to Facebook User Groups has been good for traffic, especially in March.

And that’s where I’ve been focusing what little attention I had in April. I’ve been running two different daily limericks in most cases; a ‘PG’ rated version for distribution on the general Facebook wall, and an ‘R’ rated version for distribution in the Facebook Adult Humor groups. But this has not had any significant impact on driving traffic to the Smashwords site were the limerick books are posted.

#MondayMotivation Status Update – Week 15

Fifteen weeks! Damn, Limericks Volume Three has been stuck in editing for three weeks. It has not been a very productive past couple of weeks. As tax time winds down there is a lot more client work that needs to be cleared off of the desk, and well, money comes first. But by next week… yes next week, volume three will get posted… I can feel it!

And this past week wasn’t all dormant as a dormouse… I have been getting limericks posted to twitter and the book of faces. But I’m a bit lagging in getting them uploaded at Pinterest…

Also, I’ve been occasionally dropping the Limericks on my Google Circles page… does anybody have any feedback or opinion of Circles as a viable social media site or an I just posting on the next new MySpace with that?

Here’s an excerpt from something I’m working on now:

As I was awakened by the sounds of moaning I could hear it coming from the hall. I got up and went out to see if my aunt was alright fearing she may be I’ll, or injured… Her door was ajar and as I opened it I saw her stretched out on her bed bathed in bright moonlight. Her light blue satin nightgown was bunched up around her waist, her legs were speed and her hands burrows between her pale thighs.

I stood there in the doorway frozen in shock and surprise. I had never seen a woman masturbating before… Not even on the internet… And the sight here and now mesmerized me. As my paralysis left me I could feel my cock swelling with the excitement. I had never thought of my aunt in sexual way but now it was the only thing I could think of.

Her soft sweet lips moaning and gasps as her head tossed and turned the main of black curls tossing… As her climax approached her cries grow higher and louder, but it was the scent that I had a particular notice of. A pungent musky aroma that Emirates from her… It struck me full as I breathed in her scent, my nostrils flaring… I became aware that my own hand worked its way into my sleep pants and around my twitching cock… As my aunt came I climaxed too. My cum soaking into my sleep-pants…

I saw my aunt’s hands fall limp beside her. Her climax complete she drifted deeper into sleep… Her breasts fussing and falling as her breathing resumed it’s normal pace…

I was aware of my standing there… Watching her half make form on the bed and growing hard again… I returned to my bed with another aching hard-on waiting to me satisfied… And for the second time that might o thought if having this cock satisfied by my aunt. As I masturbated again that though grew move vivid.

The next morning I headed down stairs. I slept in late and it must have been around nine in the morning. My aunt was already washing a couple of breakfast dishes.

“Hey, you’re up late, is everything ok?” She asked as she saw me flop down as the table.

“Yeah, sure” I answered. Then, I tentatively added “there was just this noise keeping me up I suppose.”

“you’re probably not used to the nocturnal sounds of nature out there in the woods. There are a lot of animals that prowl around, you’re bound to hear something or other out there”

She finished fixing another large cup of coffee before heading upstairs to her desk, her writing and the view. She gave no indication of anything amiss.

#MondayMotivation Status Update – Week 13

Yes, I have noticed that I seem to have lost a week here… A whole week. But you know, its not the first time that I’ve fallen off my G.T.D. wagon. Too many projects I suppose all clamoring for attention, that and getting caught up in the NetFlix net of new series. I’m watching Travelers, which my brother turned me on to, and the SciFi / Action show Zoo! so my creative endeavors have taken a hit.

But this week ends the month and it will be time for a reflection on the month to see how my ‘social media presence’ has expanded. I have been looking to expand the visibility of the limericks, mostly through Facebook Group. I have been getting very encouraging feedback there, and I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who visit this blog through that venue.

I’ve had some inquiries, and I’m looking to launch volume three of the limericks next week. Right now a friend of mine is proofreading / editing them. I value her feedback as she has a pair of good ears for limericks.

While you’re here… Check out Naughty Boy’s Book of Limericks Volume 1:
A book of questionable verse
Compact, economical, terse
Do not give to the kid
You’ll be sorry you did
They do go from bad to worse

#MondayMotivation Status Update – Week 9

limerick045Well the current production of limericks has been continuing, but the work on the collected volume three has slowed to a crawl. I was hoping to have that squared away as far as formatting, but I looks like that will occur this week. Really. I need to get that off my desk. Unfortunately, tax work (which pays the bills) has increased significantly… new clients coming out of the woodwork… it seems that this year everybody knows somebody whose looking to get their taxes done. Did H&R Block suddenly raise their rates or what! Not that I’m complaining… I like money!

But still:
A Limerick a day keeps the gloomies at bay.
That’s what I say, in no other way.
They help get me thinking,
Without too much drinking,
A mental jump-start to my day.

#MondayMotivation – Week 8 Status Update

coffee 01A good week of tweeting… more followers and a good series of being witty. I enjoy the various twitter games like: #unlikelythingstosteal, #newmeaningsforpotus and #makeafilmitalian. I like posting in these threads and dropping in the limerick pictures. I’m hoping that it drives some traffic, but mostly its fun… A way of keeping  this wordsmith mentally nimble. And at my age… I could use all the help I can get lol!

Well, speaking of limericks, I’m still getting the century of verses for volume three ready this week. I’m also working with a friend of mine to rework the cover images. I had a client pay me through paypal so now I have a little money trapped there and I found out that IStock images will accept paypal payments… how fortuitous.

I put out the weekly limericks last Friday, and I’m running ahead of schedule this week as I have all of this week’s daily limericks already done and in the launch bay.

#MondayMotivation – Week 7 Status Update

google_girlWell last week saw the publication of the second volume of limericks. I feel better just knowing that its finally off of my to do list. I need to get my procrastination under control here. I’m half way through the third installment and I hope to get that released in two weeks.

As for this week, I’m hoping to have the first draft of the Yoga Poses story ready for review. I should have an additional excerpt posted here. I know how much you all look forward to that. At least I hope you do… feedback here has crawled to about zero. But I’m hoping that the more I post, the more I’ll be noticed. Right now though, I seem to have an issue where I am not being seen in search results.

I think its a WordPress issue and I’ll have to start trouble shooting that. It may be something like installing a SEO plugin or have some admin option turned on… Well, that will have to wait until tomorrow.

Monday Status Update – Week 5

Autumn Status UpdateLast week saw the return of the Friday Limerick Round-up. I had a busy week on the twitter, and several Facebook posts. I have started a new story story that I hope to have completed this week. I also had to go through three rounds of reformatting on the Limerick Volume One and now its ‘pending review’ before moving on to their retail affiliates. Getting that done is a big move in the right direction. Not that its off of my ‘to do’ list I can move forward with publishing volume two. And I still have volume three nearing completion.

So, I’ll focus on the show story and I’ll post another excerpt here in a day or two or three. I enjoy having a place to see what these thing look like once they are free from the confines on my own computer. Any feedback I can get from you dear read is greatly appreciated.

Hmmm ‘Dear Reader’? I’m wondering, who was it that used that phrase in their writing? I recall Stephen King using that term in his book ‘On Writing’, but I thought it might be older… possibly Hemingway using the term to break through the proverbial fourth wall. Maybe I came across it in something Poe wrote. I have been doing quite a bit of reading lately. Right now I’m plowing through a think book of Russian folklore and fairy tales. Am I enjoying it? Of course. Am I fishing for ideas? Always!

limericks_vol01And you should stop and get a little reading done… might I suggest… Naughty Boy’s Book of Limericks Volume 1… available at Smashwords everywhere!

Monday Status Update – Week 4

Boudior 01Well, Limericks Volume One is published at Smashwords, but there is a problem with the table of contents and Word’s hyperlinks that’s preventing the book to be accepted into the Smashwords Premium distribution. So I will be watching their video and going over their style guide again.. and I’ll resubmit it again.

Limericks Volume Two is all collected, compiled and curated… and I’m formatting it for an updating to Smashwords this week. This volume has a geographic theme to the one hundred limericks which in many ways is traditional for limericks as many of the earliest samples of this verse form are geographic in nature.

I’m also starting work on an evil short story about a young lass being taken control of by her manipulative neighbor and delicious little gem I’m initially titling “Magic Mirror”. I will be serializing it here… or at least that’s the plan for now.

Monday Status – Week 03

emma-watson-003My God, yes, its been OVER a year since I’ve poked my head above the ground to see if spring is around the corner. I have been on hiatus for a year and now its time to blow the dust off of my ideas and get the writing ball rolling again. A new sense of purpose, of mission, of fun and frivolity…

I’ve been playing with words again and assembling them into limericks… so I should get my notes on ‘how to publish to Smashwords’ and see if I can launch one of those files into the real world. I’ve actually assembled two collections of one hundred limericks each. So I want to make a Limericks Volume 1 and Limericks Volume 2 publications. And now I’m working on two more volumes of limericks… It gives me something to do while enjoying my morning cup of ‘get up and go’.

Which, honestly, is something that I should be doing more of. Too much time spend watching YouTube is not getting any digital ink spilled on the page.
