I'm getting a jump start on my NaNoWriMo project today. It was supposed to be an erotic novel, but four pages in it's turning into a grimdark existentialist erotic novel. "Kae paused and wondered if her real body had been forgotten and was rotting away at that very moment, then took another slurp of pussy."

I think I've expounded upon this idea before, but it's basically the Sex Matrix, which enables a hooker to service clients from all over the world without any risk to her real body, but then things... get weird. (No, she isn't The One. There is no One. There is only an endless procession of the helpless many. Just because there is no spoon doesn't mean you can bend it. Are you turned on yet?)

I can't pretend to be distressed by this. I like being weird! I'm excited to see where this goes!


  1. I hope that wasn't an actual quote...

    The idea is to take the reader on a journey, and not shock them out of the story. Slurp managed to stun me out of the post...

    Take the reader by the hand, softly place it where you want, and tenderly lead them down the road you've chosen for them.

  2. Dan - Oh jeez, no, not remotely an actual quote! "Slurp" is my sardonic rendering of lazy erotic writing--it isn't my actual attempt at erotic writing.

  3. NaNoWriMo rocks!! No jump start for me though - I'm kicking off with some friends at midnight. I'm planning a cyberpunk/Lovecraftian horror type story.

    Best of luck...

  4. Holly - Ok, was worried for a moment :) And I look forward to reading your story.

  5. I read a sci-fi novel once that included cyberhookers, where one could pay for sex with another person in virtual reality (as it, avatars controlled by real people, only they didn't call it that because the novel predates the use of the term "avatar" in that sense). It didn't get all existential about it, unless you count the rumors and fears that the companies who owned the VR devices (which were too expensive for most people to own, so they were usually rented) could and sometimes did "fire" their hookers by electrocuting them!

  6. Gretings Fellow WriMo. I don't know where my novel is going just yet, Mystery, Military Fiction, Thriller.

    Wanna trade word counts every week?

  7. I'm still trying to decide whether to take the NaNoWriMo plunge . . . and I've already lost one day.

    Do you think that'll be a problem?

    I remember liking that idea when you wrote about it some time ago. Still not sure what mine would be about. I was working on fleshing out an idea the other day about a 13-year-old boy who discovers that his world really is created and maintained by his existence.

  8. Now you say it's not an actual quote.
