I've been seriously contemplating writing a novel in hopes I could publish it and in turn reap a bit of remuneration if it sells well. Well, a few moments ago I decided I'd go thru with it. It's going to either be borderline erotic or fully erotic, though tasteful not demeaning and vile like half the books today. The writers have little to no talent whatsoever and it is painfully obvious they care little for sophistication.


It's a risky bet, but are any of the pit-goers aspiring writers by chance?

Plus, I'd like to know your views on erotica.


EDIT: Sorry, no nude females.


Perverts.

Did you get this idea after watching South Park? Valley of penises



No, I've long been contemplating writing an erotic tale.

Quote by DorkusMalorkus
Don't write a story with the intention of making it erotic from the get go. Write a story in which erotica will only add to it. You should be able to remove it and still have a well-selling books. It shouldn't be a gimmicky type thing.


That's what I plan on doing. I hope to have a detailed storyline, a particular goal with elements of erotica placed here and there.

It'll be fantastical as well.

I put it in my signature because I honestly agree with the quote. I don't like humanitarians or humanitarianism

I'm an aspiring writer!



As a writer what are your interests regarding the style of writing and the genre?

Hmm, thinking about this more, I say erotic elements should only be there to add something. It should be necessary, or not there at all. Women As Lovers by Elfriede Jelinek is a good example of this. It is there to express very specific things, in a way that is stylistically consistent with the rest of the story and adds to how depressing the whole book is.

www.literotica.com is a good site. I'm not advertising it or advising that you visit it, just merely stating that it is an interesting site

I see. Interesting suggestion.

I have been there before. Honestly, half of the material is distasteful.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

It depends on the story of the novel. I still have yet to work out the point of the erotic section of Peter Benchley's "Jaws."

I've never personally tried writing anything of this nature, but I would certainly make sure that I gave such a scene good reason for taking place. I would also make a point of including no dialogue. Otherwise it'd end up looking like the script for a porno. That, and I like the idea of the two characters not speaking because they don't need to.

Maybe you should write about something cooler. Like.. about me. There would be no erotica in it.. But it'd have the best male character ever.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I don't have any particular interest in erotica, but I don't think I've ever met another writer who didn't think the genre as a whole was distasteful by merit of it's defining characteristics. I think it's a perfectly valid medium myself - just not one I care to write.

I hope you make some money. We're a poor bunch, writers.

Don't lie to me.

I know you're not marrying all those people for their personalities.

"Thru" is simply an informal alternative for "through" and I chose to use it.


And yes, I don't plan on the book having mindless sex scattered about for no good reason - it'll have a point. And dialogue will not be present.

Truthfully, it's pointless. That's my opinion. I believe in securing the welfare of oneself and leaving others to secure their own bringing forth their own happiness. Their not being capable of doing so is pish-posh.

Hmm, seems out of place for you to use informal language.

(Merely an observation, no slight intended)



I know. I believe it's become a bad habit. I typically would always use "through" but then made the asudden transition to using "thru" which makes me think of fast food restaurants.

In a sense I agree that people are often more able to take care of themselves but I don't think that everyone in the entire world is 100% capable. I do however agree with you that people need to take more action in their own lives and hold themselves responsible first.

On the other hand there's plenty to go around, I'll gladly give some of my food so you won't go hungry (nothing in life lasts forever). There are instances, (Hurricane Katrina, Tidal Wave in Thailand) that you are clearly incapacitated and incapable of being able to procure man's basic needs. Nothing "pish-posh" about that.....

Even if I wasn't for it, "cowardice" and "stupidity" are not even mediocre at best at describing the way he felt about it. Really it just conveys how filled with hate, shallow and power hungry, he was at times.

Furthermore, views like this are a huge fallacy because even without knowing you or being around with Hitler was, I can say without a doubt that you do not live your life this way.

oh, and i forgot, let me know how the book thing comes alot, I think it's cool that you're pursuing it like that, more people should take up the things that they really want to do,
