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.
