I have been thinking that I need to try something different. I have always been a bit of a creative writer. But I have not written a short story in a good year and a half. I ran out of ideas that titillated me sufficiently to focus and maintain my attention on that particular endeavour.
But I feel the need to express my expanding inner desires in a creative way. I often feel like I am bursting at the seams, hypomanically creative, overflowing and exploding with fruit flavour. To channel and temper this brand of expression would be wise… and it might yield something interesting.
People have told me that erotica is a great way to explore one’s fantasies, fetishes, kinks, limits, etc…. It sounds like something I would greatly benefit from as I spend a lot of time in my internal sandbox… it might be fun to externalize a bit of it, and see what form it takes in writing.
I don’t want to commit to full stories. Maybe one day. But for now I am thinking the micro format. Like vignettes 250 words or less. It sounds like a fun challenge, and I am curious to see what comes out of me… and what I have the guts to share with all of you (included in YOU are my partner and a few very close intimate friends from my irl life… so I am a little nervous).
It will be all fiction. If anything is inspired by real events or conversations from my life, I will neither confirm nor deny.
Anyway, this idea has been bouncing around in my skull for a few weeks, and I think I want to give it a go.
Also completely unrelated to writing but related to creative output, I plan on taking up drawing again. But with no goal in mind other than just another way to channel my energies and hone a skill.
I am excited!
Thanks for your continued support.
