I offered the chance for club members to write our story starts and the club was excited to try! For this month I will write one but starting in December the story starts will be written by other folks. The fun is just beginning.
This week I posted two more Eden Lit Lessons:
Writing Great Dialogue
Our Featured Author for October is ScarletFox. Check out her latest work: Date With The Devil
This month's topics are:
*Open Topic- Write about whatever it is that sparks you this month. Genre and style are yours to choose!
*Poetry Open- We acknowledge that almost everyone writes poetry. So come on out you shy poets and dazzle us with your gripping words!
*Thanksgiving Folly- We have all had holidays where we wished we were ANYWHERE but there. Some border on dark comedy and others are just plain absurd. Tell us all about your Thanksgiving foibles. Did your Dad nearly burn down the house frying a turkey? Did you have the police called to your house because of a fight? Did the kids do something memorable? Fact or fiction we want to hear all about it!
It was hot, the kind of hot that sits in the back of your throat and makes you swallow convulsively to relieve the pressure. Airless and merciless the outside temperatures soared to record breaking highs by the early morning hours. I had taken a cold shower and the water seemed to sizzle on my skin as I tried to dry off without rubbing the towel over my body. The friction from the towel rubbing was normally sensual, and even a hint sexual, but today it was just this side of hellish.
Finally, you decide that turning on the air-conditioner would be a good idea, and I roll my eyes at your retreating back. You feel some mystical change in the air and whirl around to confront me. I am not quick enough to school my face into the passive mask you demand.
Your eyes blaze and I am now shaking with....well not fear exactly, but I am feeling exposed and deliciously naughty.
You shake your head slowly as though regretting that you will have to remedy this little slip of decorum on such a miserable day. I think on any other day you would have laughed it off but today you are determined to have your pound of flesh.
~What? I told you I was going to make it completely erotic this month. Enjoy!
Our next meeting will be on November 12, 2012 at 3 pm est.
