This work week was far too long and left me totally exhausted, as if I had physically run a marathon. But no, it was emotions that made me feel like that, emotions that went from anger to tears to indifference and back to anger again. But, today I want to focus on a different marathon…
I want to get your attention for an entire series written Brigit Delaney. She writes raw and honest post about the rough phase her marriage is going through and she has labeled it ‘Weathering the Storm‘ and ‘Awakening‘.
Oh gosh, there are so many elements in this story to make it into a novella. CP has outdone himself with his story ‘Some motels have thin walls‘.
It’s time for us all to get in a Christmas spirit, and how can you not when you read Scandarella’s steamy story O Come All Ye Faithful?
He translated his winning story for the Dutch Smut Marathon in English and I am so glad he did! Read Mahotsukai’s The Guilt Formula which was perfectly fitting for this week’s prompt of Wicked Wednesday.
I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the Christmas image by Johnny come lately. I can imagine that it must have itched some!
Another Christmas image is Light Them Up by The Other Livvy. How can you not get into the Christmas spirit when you see this?
Don’t you think Modesty looks just perfect in her purple basque?

Tips & tricks & more
Kayla wrote a post about the 5 Reasons You’re Not Working On Your Smutlancing Dreams and I found myself nodding at all of them. The first three I have accepted that it is what it is. The fifth is not relevant to me as I am not afraid of success. In fact, I am praying to be successful. But, what totally paralyzes me is the fourth… I keep on postponing because of this.
Another post from the Smutlancer website is About that About Page, where you can find tips on creating or improving your about page.
Are you going to Eroticon 2018? Check their website and read the posts where they introduce the Eroticon speakers of next year. It might help you decide which sessions you want to attend.
