I can’t really call it daily when I’m so sporadically grateful. This is a challenging month but there are bright spots. I won a contest by taking 15 selfies in my town. Today a little boy of maybe 3 or 4 grinned at me amidst a mouthful of donuts on my way into the drugstore. He was so cute and so happy to be enjoying his munchkins, it made me happy by extension.
See you there!

Erotica 101 writing workshop, Sugar, Baltimore, Maryland
Professional erotica author and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of over 50 anthologies such asThe Big Book of Orgasms, Flying High and Best Bondage Erotica 2014, will take you through the ins and outs of modern erotic writing, from getting started, finding your voice, and incorporating your surroundings, pop culture, and personal experiences into your stories to crafting a range of characters and settings and submitting your work.
In this supportive, welcoming workshop environment, you’ll learn how to write vividly about everyday scenarios as well as outlandish fantasies, and make them fit for particular publications in the thriving erotica market. This workshop will address the recent boom in erotica inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, provide examples of well written erotica, and will include multiple writing exercises. You’ll be given a handout listing major markets and further reading suggestions.
