Six Sentence Sunday: WIP Touch of the Gods by D.X. Luc

Hey, don't get upset. Trust me when I say, my brother isn't worth it. I can take care of you.”

Maybe it was the electric sexuality that was his voice or my need to suddenly get revenge on my sister and neighbor, but I believed him. I felt rage, could taste the anger to the point that I wanted blood. I also experienced a higher awareness of my beginning arousal as his glided his hands over my curves. Already he was hard, precum sliding down my ass crack. In fact, I felt him prodding my rear entry with his fingers and when I tried to move away, he held me firm. My heart increased speed, and while I felt panic rising in my throat, I also savored the idea of what he had in mind.

Thoughtful Thursday: Put the Purr in Pervert!



What's going through your mind when you see this picture? I'll tell you what is going through mine....I want to be squished between that rock and hard place. And many other scenarios, but does that make me a pervert? A naughty girl? Yes. It. Does. Recently, I've heard from several people, husband included, that the pictures I look at, the subjects I talk about, and the books I write are not fit for a mother of three. But I have to say, I love the dirty I bring to the table, and I'm not alone. So hey, welcome to the pervert club and don't be ashamed to let your freak flag fly!

How to know you're in the presence of a freaky deek.

  1. The conversation starts with "Hi" then the mentioning of a hot stud's ass.
  2. While on the phone with your perverted friend, you hear her giggle and find out she's looking at half dressed men on google.
  3. Sex is a staple in her life, even when it's just by herself!
  4. She actually tells you, straight up, that she is a bona fide perverted freak of a gal.
So there you have it, as a certified professional in the world of perversion, I say hello to you all and join me in the sinfulness. It's sexy and a whole lot more fun than the vanilla place we presently all reside in.

Six Sentence Sunday: WIP Touch of the Gods by D.X. Luc

I am still working very hard on trying to get this book done and submitted so I can start on the sequel to Down the Yellow Brick Road. So here are my six to Touch of the Gods.



"Though I secretly wished he'd lose the shirt, I scolded myself thoroughly and headed over for the rescue. My steps got slower as I approached him, his frame towering more than I could imagine. He had to be over seven feet tall and he filled it out just right. His arms were as thick as a tree, veined and bulging with muscles I didn't know existed in the human body. I wasn't small by any means, but with his large hands, working man hands my dad would say, he could grab hold of me with room to spare. Licking my lips, I let my gaze roam over him, like he was a big slice of apple pie, from his powerful jean encased thighs, to the heavy mountain that was his groin. I'm not ashamed to say I lingered there."

Thoughtful Thursday: Faking it to make it

You ever have one of those days, or even weeks when you couldn't give a damn? And you're just so mentally, physically, and emotionally drained, the very idea of pushing out a few thousand words in your book seems almost impossible? Well, let me be the first to tell you, that I'm there now. From dealing with my kids, to family, and friends, I just ready to pack up my bags, and run away for a few millenia. Maybe somewhere where there is no rain, gray clouds, or hairy, beer bellies to dampen my mood further.


Because of the crappy way I feel, right now, forcing myself to open up my WIP, and try to even remotely write a riveting scene is nonexistent. I know I'm not the only one who has been in a funk because of whatever that then had to trudge through work and pretend that all is well. So that's when I look to the motto, "Fake it until you make it." and apply it as necessary. I put my "sexy hat" on and start writing to the best of my ability, and when the big O comes, I put forth my best false climax I can imagine. Strangely, when I go back to read, it comes out even sexier than I thought, and I feel like maybe that's one of the reasons behind why women are so damn good a faking it (if you know what I mean).

Though there is one exception. One part of my stories that always seem to come out easily when I'm in the worst of moods, and those are conflicts. When I'm pissed, or upset for any reason, I write amazing arguments, and my antagonists are to die for. Literally, sometimes they end up killing someone. They put the mess in messed up in the head! Because truthfully, I am messed up in the head due to my pessimistic sentiments. Or, I'm just crazy. I do talk to my muse as though he's a real person from time to time.

Back to the point at hand. For as long as I can remember, I've always managed to work best under pressure. Stress is what makes me function and better myself. From school work to writing, and I have this belief that many of us who use the right side of our brain for creativity purposes, tend to be more tense than most. It takes a lot of work to be eccentric! But in the end, I think when we do our faking, during our days of sad, pissed off, feelings, we probably make write and create some pretty kick ass stuff. I know I do. So, there you have it in a nutshell for my post today. Now I'm going to kick back and write. Then, I'm really going to hide in my bedroom away from everyone for a few hours so that I can kick this "blahness" that has come over me like a cloud of crap.

Six Sentence Sunday: New WIP. Touch of the Gods

So, if you remember, I mentioned that I was writing a new WIP titled Diary of a Repairman and how it's been going well. Well, the story and its plot has changed dramatically. For the better mind you, and so because of this, the title had to change as well. My wonderful new story, is now known as Touch of the Gods.

Now, without further ado, here are my six from this great story.


"His voice dropped lower and his gaze focused on my mouth, then lower to my breasts. As though he called to them, my nipples hardened, straining against the thin material of my shirt. I knew I was blushing from that point, because even my legs had turned a nice shade of pink. Maybe I did need to commit myself, because this instant attraction to hot guys was becoming unsettling. He inched closer and I couldn't help but inhale the masculinity of him. His body was a combination of cigar smoke and power."

Thoughtful Thursday: I'm not psychotic, I'm an author!

Okay, I'm back. I know I wasn't posting as usual last week, but I was part of a blog hop and wanted to leave that open. Now that it's over, I am ready to get back to my routine. So for today's thoughtful blog post, I am going into something I say a lot to people who look at me like I'm nuts for screaming at my characters. As an author, artist, or anyone in the field of entertainment, I'm certain you'll understand. For those who are not, but often wonder why people like us are..well..crazy, I am here to say that we're not. Okay maybe we kind of are, but not in the way that means we need to be admitted to the nearest psych ward.


 

Well, maybe we're not like that guy in the second picture, but you get the point! When I imagine myself preparing to write, I see a quiet, serene place of comfort. My pillows are stacked behind me and I have my wine, chocolate, and laptop ready for a few hours of story telling. What others around me see is a woman begging an imaginary person called her muse to work with her just this once so that her characters finally come together in a steamy embrace. To the outsider, mostly my husband, I look like I'm going nuts. He's even asked me if he should fear this bonkers trait spreading to one of our three children. Anyone who knows my children will say it's in all of them. But that's neither here nor there.

He and many others don't get it. And how could they? In their minds, if you want the plot to move forward, you just write it to be so. But in the case of us authors, it's not so simple. The whole concept of making love in our world of fantasy is more complicated than a rubix cube! Yeah, rationally, it makes sense what onlookers are saying, but who has ever met a rational writer? Yeah, exactly. Our crazy characters always tend to act up when we need them to work with us most. And by the time they are ready to even remotely go ahead, meet up with each other, and do the nasty, it ends up not at all how we planned.

I remember, I was once speaking with another author friend of mine and she asked me how my sex scene was going. I screamed in frustration, explaining that the darn punks decided that they wanted to just kiss and cuddle. They weren't ready for the next level. Because she had been there, she understood exactly what I was saying. She also understood why we were talking at about one in the morning. Again, that's a stupid muse move that only we'd get. She told me calmly, that I needed to let my couple lead the way and all would work out just as I wanted. Possibly better. She was right of course and when it came time for her to bemoan to me about the trials and tribulations caused by her hero and heroine, I repeated her words of wisdom.

Now, I want to stop a moment and discuss this thing called "The Muse". I've mentioned mine many times over facebook and because I'm very sure he's a guy, my friends first believed I was talking about a real man. When I explained that it was just my drive, a voice that pushes me to write, they all grew quiet and maybe slightly concerned that I had split into another personality. Sometimes, to be honest, I think my muse may be his own man because when he takes over, I feel detached and the work that comes from him is pristine!


This is a picture that was circulating on some of my author friends' facebook pages and it still makes me chuckle everytime I see it. But honestly, this is my muse and I sometimes wish I didn't need him. Yet, as harsh as he is to me, I am grateful because I need the push. All authors do. Some of their muses are not so cruel and they want them to be, but when they do decide to make their presence known, you will see the writer up until the wee hours of the morning, typing frantically because if they stop, the "flow" that has been gifted to them will disintegrate.

What most outside of the author box call writer's block, we call "My muse hates me right now and has decided to give me the silent treatment." block. It's the worse thing in the world and comes when you are probably either close to being complete or trying to finish up by a deadline. In my opinion, a muse is like a baby. Wakes you up when you'd want to sleep most and make you work. Then sleeps at times you're actually up and ready to do something about it.

So, are we really crazy or are we geniuses in disguise? Who knows, it really depends on who's looking, I guess. what I do know is while I'll complain how tired I am because I was up until 3am, I'm actually proud of the work that came from my all nighter. And while I'm waving my fist at two made up characters because they aren't in the same room to get it on and I can't figure out why they won't listen to me, I'll also realize that they will eventually and the end result will have been worth the wait.

It's okay to be eccentric, I say. So all you authors, artists, photogs, and right-minded individuals, tell your muses thank you. Raise your fists to the sky and shout with pride that you finally got to bed at a decent time of midnight! And for those who look at you, while you exclaim how much you've fallen in love with the hero you've created, tell them,

"I am not psychotic. I am an AUTHOR!!"
