Larry’s P&L Statement

Cuckold Club - First Date
Cuckold Club – First Date

Most companies put out a P&L Statement or Profit and Loss. Today, I took stock of my own P&L and was worried about what I discovered.

On the good side, I just finished publishing Cuckold Club: First Date, which, as the title suggests, is a Hotwife story. As I converted the original electronic version to a print version, I realized that it was a pretty damn good story. But, unfortunately, it’s been out for a while, and the details have faded away like trying to remember your last lap dance before COVID. Or like trying to cop a feel as you were stuffing dollar bills into the dancer’s g-string.

For a writer of erotica, I’m not sure it is acceptable behavior to wack off to your own porn, but I had forgotten what a good story it was. Most of my smut is about swingers or Hotwives with detours in Unicorn land. Well, then there are the BDSM stories, but they are not too dirty as Wifey beats her subs and gives them what they’ve secretly lusted after.

The scary part is that COVID causes memory problems and brain fog. Luckily, Foxy and I have been vaxxed and boosted while testing negative through the last couple of years. But, a writer friend of mine, Lisabet Sari, asked me if I’d done any follow-up stories after “First Date?”

That got me thinking, and I realized that there was a second story. But, what happened to it? I know I must have it, but I just need to find it? I’ve developed a storage system that seems to work pretty well for me, except for the old needle in the haystack.

I write using my Windows PCs and my shiny new 2021 MacBook Pro 16-inch laptop. To keep the files corraled, I’ve got a two Terrabyte DropBox cloud storage system to interface everything. I’ve always had a jaundiced eye toward cloud storage, but DropBox keeps a physical copy on your local computer as well as the cloud.

When you edit a file on one device, DropBox updates all the other copies on every computer to the latest version. That way, I can be at Starbucks working on a story using my Mac, then go home and fire up my Windows computer to continue working on the story without a hitch.

I have a Network Attached Storage or NAS drive at home to store all my files. So regularly use FastCopy to copy the new or modified files to my NAS drive. This way, the chances I lose a file are almost non-existent.

So, what happened to the follow-up story to First Date? As soon as I finish this post, I will start scouring my NAS drive for the next story. Unfortunately, I can’t remember what I called it and will probably just be forced to open every file that is potentially the one.

The one bright light in this whole episode is that I’ve discovered another Hotwife story that is virtually complete and about 30,000 words. I must have been stoned or something, as I don’t remember writing it at all. I have well over one hundred partially complete erotic stories as I have a bad habit of dropping one story to start another when I get an idea.

My Draft folder is stuffed full of partial stories as my perverted thoughts get pulled away from the keyboard to the next short skirt I run across. In Sin City, people-watching is a finely honed skill with every planeload of tourists who show up thousands of miles from home. “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” is on the drunken mind of every tourist determined to make the most of three days away from spouses and family.

Foxy is also good about making sure I never miss a hottie walking down the street, either. We are attracted to the same type of women and always make sure the other half also gets a good look. One of the big hotels on the strip has a sort of wide hallway which leads to their nightclubs. Foxy and I like to sit on the bench and watch the girls stroll by in their clubbing outfits, or lack thereof.

Well, I’m off like a prom dress as I search for my lost story! First, check out Cuckold Club: First Date at Kinky Literature. Richie and Randi of Kinky Literature are the purveyors of the finest smut around. They charge the same prices, and you get the satisfaction of dealing with people who like porn stories as much as you do.

Caution, PSA follows!

I’m Larry Archer, and I write erotic stories for the huddled and yearning masses. Foxy and I are swingers in real life. I write erotic stories based on the things we do and see. While the Lifestyle is not for everyone, it’s been fun for us. My smut is explicit and hardcore but with a somewhat plot. My porn novels are generally positive and fun, as this reflects how enjoyable swinging has been for us. If you’re interested in checking out my stories, I publish them at all the popular outlets.

    Oh, man – I know what that’s like! When I was actively writing and publishing, a reader sent me a comment and asked if there was going to be a second story and I told them that I had written the second part, proofed and edited it, and it would be out soon. Except when I went to do that, I couldn’t find it. No external or cloud drives back then but I saved a copy of everything I wrote to… diskettes and a check of those diskettes found the story to be missing… but I know I wrote it.

    I eventually found it – it was in another folder other than the one I put finished stuff in: I had failed to notice that the file destination had changed for some reason – Windows had a habit of doing that in the early going or, sometimes, WordPerfect would “forget” the destination.

    Girl and guy watching. My first wife and I did that together a lot given we were both bisexual and very much into sex with others. We had different tastes in men but similar tastes in women and going to the beach would keep us entertained for hours on end eyeballing half-naked people getting cooked under the sun.

    And, um, I’ve written some stuff that had me jerking off while writing it and definitely when I re-read it. I figured that if I can write something that’ll make me beat my meat, it’ll definitely make others do it. Readers would write me and tell me that they masturbated and many more would ask, “Did that really happen?” – and I neither confirmed nor denied anything (but none of it really did).

      I’d be interested in reading some of your stuff. You do a damn good job as a blogger and I bet you write good smut also!

      It took me a few minutes but I finally found the story I was looking for. The good thing was that I stumbled onto a Hotwife cuckold story that for the life of me I don’t remember writing. I know it’s mind but I must have zoned out. As an engineer, before COVID, I used to do several trips on the lecture circuit a year where I taught some of the topics that I know a little about. It’s possible that I wrote the story while sitting in a hotel somewhere and then let it slip my mind.

      Foxy and I have “her” girlfriends and “our” girlfriends to share. Her girlfriends are typically those whose husband she is not attracted to and I’m not allowed to do anything but watch. This way it’s less likely for her to have to do a charity fuck with the spouse. Our girlfriends are open for sharing. It works out okay except for the times I’d really like to do the girl!

      A lot of people write romantic erotica where everyone gets laid on the last page. I just can’t do that and think you should get lucky in Chapter One. I guess my thinking is warmed by our Lifestyle which moves faster.

        Send me your email address and I’ll hook you up. My first editor taught me that there’s only so many ways you can put A into B, C, or D and the trick of it isn’t so much in describing the sex but focusing on the people involved. It’s not easy to do and make it 100% believable. It takes… time to develop characters and thinking about how they’re going to behave or, how long it’s going to take them to have sex; I found that if you don’t “set the stage” the right way, any sexy they have will… lack some stuff.

        My characters tend to “get into trouble” rather quickly because I think of real life stuff. A man doesn’t walk into a gay bar and winds up having sex if you don’t know why he was there in the first place and that speaks to who he is and all that as a “person.”

    couldn’t you just search for “Ted Serena”? in the various folder trees it could be in? I don’t recall her name being in any other of your books. Not sure about Ted.

    Windows explorer in Win10 is pretty good at searching the contents of Word documents, not sure how well it would do with scrivener or any other software package.

    I would assume your Mac is even better at searching file content than microsquish.

      Thanks but I found it the hard way! One of the problems was I couldn’t remember if I used Word or Scrivener for the story. Most things in my Draft folder are .DOC files. It’s a follow on to First Date and uses the same original characters plus Foxy and Chrissy thrown in the mixture. Foxy uses her catchphrase, “I’ll never fuck anyone whose dick is shorter than my husband’s as that would be cheating!”

    Mark, I’m still learning the MacOS and so far haven’t had a big drive to understand it beyond word processing and email. My MacBook Pro is overkill for what I need and should have bought a MacBook Air but just couldn’t resist the urge. I’m almost tempted to buy an Air just to cut the weight in half. I’ve got two Windows 10 laptops that I’m going to ebay out as I dislike the touchpads. Once you’ve used a Mac touchpad, there’s no going back.

      I’ve disabled the touchpad on every single work laptop they’ve given me. my thumb tends to bonce on it when I’m typing and that clicks the cursor to shift to wherever the pointer is on the page. I don’t always notice when that happens, so things can get really screwed up.

      I got a Logitech Anywhere MX mouse and it really is “anywhere”. hell it will work on a clear glass tabletop, or my thigh if I’m goin mobile.

        I’ve got rodents also but it irks me to have a laptop and have to use a mouse with it. Partially defeats the purpose. Try a Apple sometimes, they work perfectly and besides the ones with the butterfly keyboard, it’s hard to beat them.

        Weird, no reply link showed up below your response to mine.

        anyway, I don’t use laptops for my personal PC, I always use desktops/towers. I do quite a bit of gaming on my PC’s and laptops are typically a generation behind on the hardware since they have to make it smaller.

        well at least for laptops that don’t cost a fortune.

        A major drawback of most laptops is that they share RAM between the GPU and the CPU. That can cause issues for gaming.

        Also one can easily upgrade much of the components in a desktop/tower that is virtually impossible to do on a laptop.

        I don’t need a laptop since I don’t use a PC in multiple places in my house.

        I’ve got my home office, where I have my PC, and have one hooked up to my AV receiver in my Livingroom. It’s pretty sweet having a 60″ 4K “monitor” for a PC.

        The AV PC is the previous desktop/tower from my home office. When I upgrade my home office, I rotate that PC to the AV unit.

        So the only laptops I’ve ever had were work issued ones, and they have never offered a Mac of any type.

        I’ve had IBM/Levento’s, Toshiba’s (when they owned us), and now they give us Microsoft surfaces.

    Sounds like you have a pretty sweet setup. I use a balance of desktop and laptop machines. For Windows, my favorite laptop is a Lenovo T450S that I bought used for $300 and upgraded the hard drive and memory. I have a Lenovo for work and liked the keyboard so much, I went out and bought one for personal use. It’s the only laptop that has a decent touchpad for a Windows machine. With an i7 processor, it’s a pretty good machine. I carry Macs around for word processing and the Internet. I don’t do any gaming so the video card is not a big deal for me. I had 2 MacBook Air’s and loved them. I put a 1Tb SSD in my 2015 Air and regifted it to my wife. I bought one of the new Apple silicon MacBook Pro’s and love it except for the weight it’s about 5# and my Air’s are 2-3#. The battery life is phenomenal. A 60-inch monitor would be so cool. On my desktop, I’m using dual 32-inch monitors which is not bad.

    Mark – I think Wordpess only lets you reply one deep before you end up with a new response. I’ve noticed that myself.

  6. Hey Larry!

    Glad you found the story, anyway! I’m looking forward to your reading it.

    I definitely agree with kdaddy… if your own stories don’t turn you on, how can you expect them to arouse anyone else?

    Also right there with you as far as the girl-watching goes. Like you two, my DH and I have very similar tastes in women. And living in the tropics, we always have a lot of bare flesh to admire.

      Thanks, Lisabet, that means a lot. Yesterday, in about 2 hours I assembled the body of a 100,000-word box set. I only have to build the cover and the Forematter and do the final assembly. This is something like my 5th or 6th print books I’ve done and it’s starting to just become an assembly line process.

      I bet the show you get in that area is prime viewing for sure. Take care.
