What do Cliteracy and Erotic Fiction have in common?


A terrific short commentary to stimulate…well, I leave that up to you.

Elizabeta Brooke

Cliteracy101I’ve just read the Huffington Post online project #CLITERACY . I have to admit, as I read the article, I was astonished to discover that the medical profession had deleted the clitoris from the main textbook Grey’s Anatomy in 1947, and that in other literature there was so little mention of what the clitoris actually did (while there was heaps of info out there on how the penis produces pleasure). In fact, it was only in 1998 that Australian urologist Helen O’Connell published findings that rocked the medical world. Through dissection, she’d mapped out the clitoris in its external AND internal entirety, demonstrating not only its immense size (it’s comparable with the penis), but its sizable stock of nerve-endings,  far more than in the penis.

I’m sure those findings surprised a lot of people. They surprised me, and, probably because I don’t have a penis, I’d assumed that because of all the hype around male orgasm, it had to…

10 OneNote Features that Will Rock Your Writing World


I’ve been playing with my tech options lately. Three products are blowing my mind and changing my world. OneNote, Scrivener and LiveScribe. If you’re wondering, if you’re searching, take a look at them, learn what they are capable of and you’ll have your mind blown, too!

Writers In The Storm Blog

I’m a software trainer by day so I have several “true loves” in the software realm. But as a writer, my hands down favorite lately is OneNote.

I. Heart. OneNote.

What is it, and where do you find it?

OneNote is a planner and note taking software. Capture text, images, video and audio notes, and keep important information readily available. If you’re the organized type, it’s likely that you have a binder with all of the research information and pictures for your book.

OneNote allows you to keep this information in the same format electronically so it’s searchable.

You’ll find OneNote in your START menu.

I could do several posts on the topic (and I probably will) but when I stopped to think about what I use the MOST in the program, it was pretty easy to come up with my Top Ten fave features.

Blackheart: The Final Chapters


 

Howard Pyle [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

My deepest apologies for those of you who do not follow me on fanfiction.net and have been waiting patiently for the final chapters of Fifty Shades of Blackheart.  They are here in all their unedited glory.  I think I had to reteach myself how to use WordPress, it has been so long.  Please be assured that I am not running out of ideas, I simply haven’t had time in my real life to dedicate to this world.

Just to let you know, this story is being recrafted into a series that won’t be published as Fan Fiction.  Working title is The Blackheart Legacy.  A lot of planning and plotting has been going on in my time away, even if I have been unable to fully execute the writing of those stories.  I want to spend some time introducing you to the characters in the next few months while I get that story underway and I will be giving you some snippets of the planned four (perhaps five) stories as they begin to emerge.

In the meantime, please go and read the last chapters if you haven’t already seen them in fanfiction.net.  I welcome your comments and I will be trying to be more active in this space from here on.

 

Chapter 17 The one where we find out who the little boy is

Chapter 18 The one where we find out what a scheming ferret Jackson Hyde really is

Chapter 19 The one where Christian nearly loses Ana

Chapter 20 The one where we say goodbye to our hero and heroine…for now
