I was recently interviewed about my musings as a writer of erotica along with our Lifestyle. If you have been reduced to reading the labels on the soup cans in your pantry, give it a try: http://deloresswallows.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/author-interview-larry-archer.html
Doing the interview was interesting in a number of ways. As a writer, you have to typically come up with a “bio” about yourself, which is somewhat like the interview except someone else is asking the questions. I tend to think of my writings in a certain fashion except when someone else is asking the questions, they often come out of left field.
I find it difficult to talk about myself as that always seems like bragging, but give it a read once you’ve finished checking to see if your mother-in-law still is not on the side of the milk carton.
When I wrote my first book, the publisher reminded me that I had to include a bio… and I found that harder to write than writing the book was.

I agree kDaddy, also for me it’s hard to talk about yourself and blow your own horn!
When I read the part about how some stories just take off on their own, I nodded in understanding; I might think about writing a short story and the word count goes off the scale! Do you often find it’s easier to start a story than it is to being it to an end?

It seems impossible for me to end a story. My current story in post-production “Stripper or Nurse” is over 77,000 words and if I wanted to keep on going, I can visualize another 25K words but I might save that for the sequel. A typical porn story is 10-20K, while mine is typically 30-50K or longer. We all sell for the same price usually $2.99 to get the best margin, so from a reader’s point of view, you are getting 2-3x the story for the same price when you buy one of mine. But as I don’t really write with profit in mind, I work my characters a lot harder.
You’ve always struck me as an articulate person with a gift of gab, so you should give it a try and put some of your musings on paper.
I wanted to say “I know that guy!”
I don’t read much smut (I guess I prefer living it 😜) but I really enjoyed your book!
And the interview… 😄
