On Saturday this week, I was lucky enough to attend the first day of this year’s Eroticon, the conference for writers and bloggers who work with erotica. As always, it was a wonderful experience. The erotica writing community is one of the most supportive environments a writer could encounter. Each year, I find the event is akin to meeting up with my dearest friends.
Whilst there I was delivering a session on plotting erotic fiction but, before we began, I gave the writers in the room a brief warm-up exercise.
Most of us are familiar with the apocryphal story of Hemingway writing a six word short story. (For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never Worn). And it was the idea of a six word short story that I offered to those attendees participating in my session. In short, I asked them to produce the sexiest short story they could think of in six words.
I offered some of my own examples to illustrate the point.
Him hard. Her wet. Both satisfied.
Her: “Harder! Faster!”
Him: “Tighter! Wetter!”
A vampire? He’ll get lucky. Period.
As always, please post your six word stories in the comments box below. I look forward to reading them.
