2019 Smut Marathon

Thoughts on the Smut Marathon – Round 2

Well, here it is the end of Round 2 in the Smut Marathon and I am still in it! Go me! Ok I’ll be honest, I assumed I would be. But not because I’m cocky – BECAUSE I MUST HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD THE RULES. I thought, right up until I saw the email that said, “congrats, you’re still in!” that like Round 1, Round 2 was also a no-knockout round. I have no idea what gave me that idea – I swear (in spite of missing the “you can vote for yourself” rule and this one) that I read all the instructions all the way through, every time. No really, I do!! Anyway. It appears that in spite of it being a knock-out round, I wasn’t knocked out, which of course pleases me greatly. It also means that I now go on to the next round, which assignment is even trickier! So aRead more …

So here I am, ten days into March and I haven’t written a word since my last 2019 Photofest post on Feb. 28. I’m proud I finished it out, and I was proud of my entry and ranking for Round 2 of the Smut Marathon, but the bottom line is I just haven’t had it in me to write much. Maybe, as As Hy said in her Boobday post Friday, I blew my writing wad with the Photofest. But I know there is more to it than just that. The debacle with my sites beingRead more …

February 17 – Smut Marathon – Round 1: Thoughts

Today feedback and votes for Round 1 of the Smut Marathon were posted. For those of you not familiar with this enormous, year-long undertaking, now in its second year, here’s a link to information and rules. After a lot of thought and a little bit of hemming and hawing, I decided to participate this year, for a number of reasons – but more on those in a minute. So I won’t do this for every round (I don’t think), but as a first time participant, and as someone who didn’t have the time/energy to either follow along or participate last time, I thought I’d record my first impressions. I was incredibly energized and – for lack of a better word – inspired by the voting and comments on the writing. In fact that’s probably a big part of why I’m writing this now: I’m excited about the process and wantRead more …
