Stories are Everywhere

Dear reader,

My time in the UK was absolutely magical. It began with the UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet in which a whole slew of readers and writers met and mingled in Brighton. It was a quirky city filled with winding lanes and fascinating shops, edged by a pebbly beach, topped off with a fabulously cheesy pier full of arcades and amusements.

I then spent some time in London, where I toured the bridges, drank the ale, and soaked up a bizarre range of medical oddities at the Wellcome Collection.

And the whole time I was away, story after story after story kept popping into my head. I don't think it was necessarily due to the fact that I was a stranger in a strange land. Being out of one's comfort zone seems just as likely to bring anxiety as it does inspiration.

No, I think it was the company I was keeping.

At the pub with Clare

I was able to meet fellow authors and connect with them about what moves and inspires us to write.

I was able to connect with so many wonderful readers too, and we could simply hang out together and relax.

In this atmosphere of trust, security and friendship, the story ideas began to crop up everywhere. Take these guys with the glass case. As Clare London and I browsed our way through the narrow, maze-like Brighton lanes, it seemed that every time we turned a corner, four guys in blue shirts moving a glass case would sidle past. Why--someone became allergic to the fish he'd been keeping? What was inside the cases now--antique air? What would be kept in them once they were at their new location--an invisible menagerie? The Glass Case

Pretty soon it seemed like there were plots everywhere. We couldn't turn around without tripping over a plot.

Granted...you don't see something this puzzling every day. But I think it was the convivial atmosphere of acceptance that prepared the kindling. That kindling was then able to flare to life at the tiniest spark of an idea.

Until next time...be inspired!
-Jordan

Majenta Erotica for Women

Think Pink

I have a problem with most m/f erotica on the market today. It seems to me the female character is usually subjugated or objectified. She's weak. She tends to have attentions inflicted on her that she never actually wanted, for which she's supposed to then be grateful.

Years ago I wrote a series of female positive m/f erotica, and I think there's a clear need for it in the market now. I'm publishing these stories in the series Erotica for Women by Majenta.
