In 2011 I began writing erotica again and have been writing it ever since. I have one story completed, I have four which are under construction and numerous other ideas in my mind. Until now the only person who has read any of my writing is my wife. I like writing for her, I like watching the look on her face change as she reads whatever it is I have written in the last day, week or month... but, I now feel the need to share.
I think part of it is a self confidence thing for me. I have never had a lot of self confidence, I seem to fail at most things I attempt and have never been great at anything. Yes, I did well in my human biology class in year 11, I did well in the couple of human development papers I took during my first attempt at university, but I've never been GREAT. This past year at university I achieved an A- grade for a public relations paper I did, and for the first time I started to believe that perhaps I don't give myself enough credit, that maybe I am better at certain things than I think I am.
This leads me to where I am right now. I have an author page on facebook, I have a twitter account and I have this blog. I have nothing published and only my wife has read my work, but I am ready to share. I am ready to try and get my work out there. I don't expect fame and glory, I don't expect to become a household name, but I do dream of others reading my stories and would be happy with just ONE person becoming a fan of my writing. Yes, of course in a perfect world there would be thousands of people who consider my stories amongst their favourites... but right now I would settle for one!
I have no real idea how long it is going to take to get my work up to standard to publish, but until then I will post snippets of my work here in the hopes that it will pique the interest of a few of you!
Thank you for reading!
YAY! I can finally comment!ReplyDelete
