YAY - A writing challenge you can see through...

Ms. Tyler, our lovely Alison, issued us a challenge this week, based on a query from the fabulous Nancy.

First, we answered her weekly Trollop With A Question (this is number 74 and they've all been fantastic and thought inducing. Go catch up if you haven't been keeping up.)

This week's question was interesting in and of itself, because it involved an item I've rarely worn, and therefore never had much cause to think about.

How many ways are there to wear sheer stockings?

And after we answered that, she challenged us to write her a flasher on that very subject.

It's been awhile since we've had one of Alison's writing prompts, and I was happy to comply with this.

So, here is my contribution.

Please enjoy. And if you get the chance, take on the challenge yourself.

They constrict around my wrists, the seams creasing my skin with every movement.

This was not what I had in mind when I ordered them from Paris. “The stockings your legs deserve” the tag line read. It sounded better in French, but that was the point.

When I dressed that morning for work, I felt very French, sexy, with my pencil skirt and ruffled blouse. Empowered even, as I brought my boss his coffee.

His eyes trickled, his chin lowered, telling me, without words, what he wanted.

On my knees, naked, my cunt twitches, as the silk tightens further.

We have winners!

With the way this blog has been going lately, I'm going to say that having four people comment is definitely a win!

Thank you to all who visited during this time. I'm sure there was more than one newbie and I hope that I can keep up posting so you'll have something semi-interesting to read from me.

In case you're late to the party, I hosted a writing prompt challenge. The prize? An e-book copy of Alison Tyler's Alison After Dark.

Yep. That's the one.

I wanted to help the lady out with five copies, but we only had four commenters. But that's cool. All the lovely people have my undying gratitude.

SO, if Cammies on the floor, Angel, David and Trix could all send their e-mail addresses to angell(dot)brooks(at)hotmail(dot)com , I shall get your prizes to you forthwith!

(On a side note, does anyone have any idea why we post email addy's like that in blogs? I just saw others doing it and figured that's the way it's done *shrug*)

In the meantime, if you didn't participate in the contest, but would still like a copy of your own, head over to Amazon and hit the buy button! A small price to pay for some seriously hot reading. How can you go wrong?!

You simply can't.

I'm Giving Out Sex!

Well, not for real. Although, now that I think about it, it would spice things up in what has been a boring six months. Hmmmm.....

No, what I am giving away is five e-book copies of Alison Tyler's sultry, sinfully fun compilation Alison After Dark.

If you check here, Alison said that she'd like to sell ten copies this week. I already own one, but I figured I'd help a lady out.

Alison is fabulous about supporting indie authors, pimping them out on her blog, commenting on posts and tweeting about them non-stop. She edits, writes, sends cheery gifts through the mail and is altogether too sweet for reality to those who are fortunate enough to know her.

Myself, I've been at a bit of a standstill when it comes to writing. Reality is exhausting and the brain just wants to shut down at the end of the day. So I let it, when I should really be unburdening my shoulders and letting it out on the page. It's not just therapy, it's an extension of myself, and when I don't do it, I feel heavy and tired and just altogether miserable.

So, in an effort to start writing again, I'll give a copy of this amazing book to five commenters in exchange for unusual writing prompts.

They don't necessarily have to be erotic in nature, although it is my chosen genre. But stepping outside my box wouldn't be so bad.

So, brother, can you spare an idea or two? Send 'em my way, and get some grade A smut-a-licious reading material in return. (And full props if anything comes from the prompts of course - I love to give credit where credit is due!)

Dropping in to say AARRRGGGHHHH!

Nothing sexy in today's entry.

Ever have one of those days where you know what you need to do, have a list and everything, and yet your brain says "Nope. Sorry. Coffee break. Catch me after."

And it's a never-ending coffee break?

Yeah that's me today.

I need to do some research on vitamins and supplements. You know, because I'm getting older and my brain is taking way too many coffee breaks these days.

I also need to try and eat better. Which means a meal plan. But I need to do it on a budget. And I'd like to be able to prep ahead of time. Which equals food that freezes well.

I have at least three books I'm reading right now, and another dozen I owe reviews on. Not to mention calls I'd like to submit for.

On top of ALL of that - I need to find another job. One where I can make grown up money. One where I'm not the only woman in a group of juvenile testosterone-laden men who seem to forget I'm there half the time. One where I can be creative and make a difference, and have fun and enjoy working. One where I wake up most mornings looking forward to what the day is going to bring.

And yet....

"Sorry. Still on my coffee break."

I can't seem to fight it. A friend has called it mental exhaustion. I have no idea. I just know that my to-do list is growing, and my mental coffee break went from a fifteen to a dinner date.

So I'm staring at the boob-tube more hours than I care to admit. And nothing is getting accomplished. Except the days are passing by faster than I can count. And I'm worried that they'll all pass me by and all that I'll wind up with is the leftovers my brain brings back from it's dinner date.

And I hate leftovers.

Mixing and Matching Music

If any of you have ever been over to Alison Tyler's blog - you know she's all about da bass.

Ok, maybe not. But she is all about all things music. She's constantly quoting songs, revealing what she's listening to, recommending artists and sharing memories and stories behind some of her favourite tunes.

She also is a HUGE fan of mixed tapes. As am I.

Currently I have 8,352 songs on my iPod. And am adding more daily. All kinds of songs - Broadway tunes, movie soundtracks, country, rock, metal, jazz - even comedy.

Back on January 19, Alison posted an entry called Make Your Mixed Tape. And it got me thinking.

There are at least a dozen variations on the mixed tape.

 - I want you but I shouldn't want you
 - You're mine and I'm so happy about that
 - I love you but I shouldn't love you
 - You love me but I don't love you and this is to let you know that we're just friends
 - I used to love you but I let you go and now I hate myself
 - You're my best friend

Etc, etc.

You get what I mean.

So I started thinking. What songs would I want someone to put on a mixed tape for ME, if I had my choice? What songs in my library would curl my toes in a good way?

It's been forever since someone made me a mixed tape. And these days, well, you can make a mixed "tape" out of anything. You can email a file, you can put it on a memory stick, you can put together a litany of youtube videos and send the link. Or, you could go old school. But what would they play it on?

I figured I'd do a few of these lists as I love to mix and match.

So the first list.

I LOVE YOU BUT I SHOULDN'T (From him to her)

Out of the over 8,000 songs on my iPod, these are twenty-five of the dozens that fit this category. Some you'll know, some you won't. So I've managed to link them all to youtube.

WARNING: they're all kind of schmaltzy, but hey, I like schmaltz. Also, there is a history behind some of these songs, and others have been - and will be - used as inspiration for future writings. But that's good right? Inspiration abounds....

So what would YOUR suggestions be for this list? Any bone melters that you wish someone would dedicate to you?

WELCOME TO A NEW ...something anyway.

Ok, so it IS 2015. And it IS the time of year where we all say that we're going to be good to ourselves - it's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new LIIIIIFFFEEE...

*sheepish grin* Sorry for the shattered windows.

Anyway, you get what I mean. Everyone's resolutions usually involve eating healthier (check), working out more (check), getting more done as far as work goes (check), etc. etc. etc.

Every year, for the last twenty, I've been setting (and failing at) the same damn goals: lose weight, be healthier, have more fun, save more money.


This year, I didn't make those resolutions. This year, I made one resolution: to do one thing per day, better than the day before, that will bring me closer to my goals. Whether it's eating a healthier meal than I did the day before, or doing one more load of laundry that wouldn't have gotten done, or writing that next chapter. Just one small thing to make my life better, and as a result, the lives better of those around me. Because a better life for me, means a happier me, which means happier people around me. And I'm not going to beat myself up if I fail at it one day.

Make sense? I hope so.

Baby steps, as one of my besties is fond of reminding me.

So, for you, my friends and readers, I wish you successful baby steps. And let's make 2015 the year we knock that shit out of the park.

X's and O's to my hotties and heaux.
