Not Enough Hours in the Day, but Writing! with @MeganSlayer #iamwriting #iamwritinghot

Some days it feels like I can’t get anything accomplished. Feels like I’m spinning my wheels. Like, no matter what I do, I’m just … blah. Does that make sense? Don’t think I’m complaining. I’m not. But there are days it feels like I’m slogging around in mud.

Today started out as one of those days. I knew what I wanted to accomplish, but golly, it didn’t seem to want to work out. When that happens, I try to find things to motivate me. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Lol!

What helped was the release of Her Sir yesterday. I’m excited about this book. It’s one of the hottest books I’ve ever written. It pushes boundaries–for me it does. So I wanted everyone to know about it. Still do. Grin. Knowing it was out and wanting to shout about it, has helped get my motivation back into working order. I’m starting on the next book in the series today. I can’t wait.

No more mud. Grin.

Her Sir by Megan Slayer

Evernight Publishing

Contemporary Erotic Romance

M/F, BDSM, Exhibitionism, Anal Sex, Toys, Spanking

There’s only one man for Andi—her Sir.

Andi McCarron knew the moment she met Sir’s gaze, he’d change her life forever. Despite other Doms wanting her as their sub, she only submits to him because he knows how to make her skin tingle. The pain delivered from his crop makes her spirit sing. She needs Sir but she wants more—except he’s not interested in taking the relationship outside of the club. What’s a girl to do when the man of her dreams, the one wielding the crop, won’t leave the club?

Dean Meyer craves his sweet sub, Andi. She fills his dreams and fantasies, but she wants a relationship. He’s not sure she can handle both his demons and secrets. Still, he can’t deny the attraction to her. When fate throws them together, he has to make a choice—give his sub what she needs or let her go for good.

I Almost Forgot… and other Quirks with @meganslayer #iamwriting #procrastination

dotcombanner2

Sometimes it feels like I need a running list or notebook on my person so I don’t forget the things I want to do or have to do. Like, if I don’t have it tattooed onto my arm, there’s a good chance it’ll get forgotten in the course of the day. I’m sure I’m not alone. I’m sure there are others who are multitasking so much, things get lost in the shuffle.

Yesterday was a good example. I had a whole slew of things to accomplish, but the one thing I wanted to do…remember my boots so I could slog around in the mud…yeah, I went home once and wrote it on my hand, yet I still forgot. Came time for the mud slogging and, hello…no boots. I’m going to use that for a book. I am. I can’t be the only one who plans and plans, only to be thwarted by my own brain seepage.

Maybe it is just me. I doubt it. But if I have a list (except when it’s on my hand because that proved futile), I tend to do better. I know what I’ve got to do and can cross off what’s done.

I do the same thing with my writing. Want to get 3k written today? I put it on a list. Want to hunt for cover art image? List, here it comes. Promotion? You guessed it.

What about you? Do you have things you have to write down or are you good at remembering it all?

Just Write the Book with @MeganSlayer #iamwriting #finishing #novels #interruptions

I’m the kind of writer who has more than one book going at a time. I can’t read one book at at time. I don’t know why. I’ve always been the kid who had to have the tv on or music playing while I did my homework. I need noise and action to work. To some, that seems strange, but to others it doesn’t. I’m a noise kind of girl.

Just as much as I’m horrible with concentrating unless there’s chaos, I can’t seem to work on one book at a time. I said that, remember? I’ve got a story I should be working on right now. It’s not at the deadline yet, but it’s also stalled. The words are there, but they don’t want to come. Darn those words, right? The reason they won’t come is there’s another story playing in my head. I said I have more than one story going at a time. Seems like this shouldn’t be a big deal? This story, though, won’t let go. Despite my best intention to focus, this story won’t go away. I even tried to put that notebook aside and it did no good.

So I worked on it. I jotted down everything the characters are telling me. It’s a jumbled mess, but it’s there. I like having it down. Maybe the jumble and the chaos is what I need. Maybe this story, this diversion, isn’t a diversion per se and it’s what I should be working on next. I never know until the words spill out.

So that’s what I’m going to do. I’m putting the stalled book aside and working on the chatty one. I feel better about the decision already.

“What do you want for Christmas?” Ford Rogan stood tall and rolled his shoulders. He appraised his sub. “Hmm?”

Hayes Carter kept his head down as he knelt in front of Ford. “I want to be yours, Sir.”

“You do?” Ford grinned. Of the three subs he worked with, he preferred this boy. Hayes knew how to please him as much as he pleased Ford. He swept his gaze over Hayes. Before they played, he liked to set the tone and talk to his sub. Hayes was different. He could watch the sexy man all day and not get tired of him. “Tell me your safe word.”

“Legal brief.” Hayes shivered. “But I don’t want to use it.”

He’d always wondered why Hayes had chosen such an unorthodox safe word, but then again, there weren’t a whole lot of rules for their scenes. “You understand what will happen? If you trust me, I’ll make you fly and blow your mind. I trust you to tell me when you’ve reached your limits.”

“I trust you, Sir. Always.” He clasped his hands behind his back.

Ford ruffled Hayes’s black hair, then trailed his fingers down Hayes’s neck. Christmas hadn’t been far from his mind. He wasn’t sure why. Most of the time he could block out the holidays and other forces beyond the walls of the club. Not today. He focused on Hayes and locking the collar around Hayes’s neck. He affixed the leash to the D-ring. “Ready? Crawl.”

“Thank you, Sir.” Hayes settled on his hands and knees. He crawled on the floor beside Ford. His bare ass flexed as he moved.

Ford resisted the urge to swat him. Instead, he directed Hayes to the St. Andrew’s cross. “You’ve pleased me. On your feet.”

Hayes scrambled off the floor and stood against the cross. “Thank you, Sir.”

“Show me your ass.” Allowed the leash to drop down Hayes’s naked body, he picked up a clear glass butt plug. “I’m filling you.” He liked pushing Hayes’s limits, plus the glass always looked beautiful against Hayes’s skin.

Hayes grasped the open cuffs on the ends of the cross and stuck his ass out. He widened his stance. “I’ve been bad, Sir. I need you to punish me.”

“Have you?” He closed the cuffs around Hayes’s wrists, then dragged the plug down his sub’s back. “How bad?”

“I haven’t been able to get you out of my head.” Hayes writhed. “I’ve thought about us playing more than once a week. I jacked off last night, and I imagined you were there.”

“Boy.” He shouldn’t be pleased, but he couldn’t help it. He’d been drawn to Hayes from the first time he’d seen the man and wanted him. He pumped lube into his hand, then smeared the lube between Hayes’s ass cheeks. Hayes writhed again and flexed. “Do you want this?”

“Please, Sir?” Hayes pulled against the cuffs.

“Eventually.” He pushed the head of the plug against Hayes’s hole. Once the plug moved past the tight ring of muscle and was buried in his sub’s ass, he kissed Hayes’s shoulder. Kissing his subs wasn’t his norm, but then Hayes wasn’t just any sub. He should’ve prepped Hayes more, but that was one of the things Hayes enjoyed — being used. “Don’t let that fall out.” He tapped the handle. “Understand, boy?

NaNo Craziness ~ #Winning #notWinning and #surviving #NaNo with @meganslayer

Each November, I get a crazy burr in my bonnet and decide to take part in NaNo. You might wonder what NaNo is. It’s National Novel Writing Month – NaNoWriMo or NaNo for short. You can find out more here: https://nanowrimo.org  30 days of writing your heart out to get to fifty thousand words and hopefully a finished novel. The idea is to just write. Get the words down. Don’t worry about editing it–that’s for December and beyond. If you reach 50k, then you’re a winner. You have to validate the word count, but yay! If not, then ya know…it happens.

I try NaNo every year. I think it’s my sick fascination with trying to get those words down. Plus, I’m crazy and need that deadline.

But there are struggles with this goal. There is the constant struggle of getting the words down. I’ve had outlines and things written out, but can’t always find the time to get the words into the computer. I get down on myself because I know what I have to do and how to do it, but the words may or may not come.

Then there’s the pressure of seeing your friends winning at the goal. The whole idea is to win. Duh. But sometimes I get down on myself because I see others finishing ahead of me and I feel like I’m not doing well enough because I can’t keep up. That’s silly because if the words are there, it shouldn’t matter how fast I get them down. Truthfully, the hardest part is just surviving. #IwillsurviveNaNo

Then there’s the cheating. I don’t mean cheating by using old words to win. Nope. I mean cheating by not writing the whole 50k for ONE book. I’m guilty of that. I’ll use the goal for 50k to finish one or two shorter books I need to complete. Am I bad? Probably. I don’t mind. I know I’ll get those books done. I’ve done full-length 50k stories during NaNo, but I’m bad and don’t do it that way every year.

What about you? Do you NaNo? Do you do something else? Want to be friends on the NaNo site? Find me and friend me 🙂 https://nanowrimo.org/participants/wendi-zwaduk

Now a little bit about the story I wrote last year for NaNo:

Wild Card by Megan Slayer wildcard_800

A What’s His Passion Novel

From Pride Publishing

M/M, Anal Sex, Multiple Partners, Voyeurism

Novel

Contemporary Erotic Gay Romance

 

Following his heart and passion will be his biggest role of all.

Kris Hunter wants out. He’s done pornographic films for the last six years. The pay’s been good, but his creativity is nearly dead. His passion is to act and to be a star on the big screen in mainstream films. When he auditions for famed casting director, Zayn Mason, he’s convinced he’s on the right path. He doesn’t want to take the casting couch route to success, but he certainly wants Zayn in his bed. Can he follow his dreams and the man he desires or will forces beyond his control derail his progress?

Zayn Mason sees the potential in Kris. As a casting director, he looks for the right actor to fill the roles in movies. He’s seen plenty of talent come and go, but no one stirs his soul both creatively and physically like Kris. But Zayn knows the pitfalls of the movie industry. Crossing over from porn isn’t easy and Hollywood isn’t always forgiving. Besides, he’s got demons of his own. Can these men get beyond their pasts and find a future together under the bright lights of the silver screen?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of voyeurism and intimacy with multiple partners.

Play That Song and Turn Me On ~ Writing and Music with @MeganSlayer #songs #writinghot #eroticstories

dotcombanner2

When I was a kid, I LOVED the radio. I know, odd way to start a blog post that talks about turning me on, then I mention being a kid. I’ll get there. Go with me.

I loved the radio. I’d sit right next to the speaker to figure out all of the different parts of the songs. The top forty countdown was one of my staples. I knew all of the songs on the list and even the ones that weren’t my favorites. I still remember them. Not the order of the countdowns, but when I hear the songs, I know them. Those songs take me back and remind me of times in my life. Dances, trips, visits to places, kisses…you get it.

So now to the title of this post. When I hear those songs, even from way back, they remind me of stuff I’ve been through. They also bring characters to mind. I hadn’t really thought about it before until I was in the Wrangler listening to the radio. My tastes are a tad different than back then, but the 90’s channel is still a favorite. Anyway, I was listening and a pair of characters came to mind. Their whole story spilled out. Then the next song made up another part of their tale. Now had I not been driving, I would’ve jotted all of this down. But I did manage to memorize the songs. I wrote those down when I got to my destination. The next time I heard the tunes, the story came back. I knew when the sex scenes should be, the break-up and everything. I’m currently working on the story as I write this post. But it’s not done.

Are there song that take you right back to a moment in the past? Remind you of someone? Make you feel the way you did back then? Let me know!
