For the Erotic Romance blog, about a certain very graphic word that starts with c and ends with t. I use the word several times in the article (I lost count, but it’s a lot) and hopefully managed to use it in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way (although I decided not to mention tongue-in-cheek in the article itself, all things considered.)
If you have any interest in reading it, I’d love it if you’d comment here or there or both and let me know what you think.
I’ve been work, work, working and my fingers are sore. Not much happening in romance blog-land that I want to touch. We still have some whiny asses bitching about “unproductive” and “personal” bad reviews–apparently mentioning the name of the author in conjunction with the badly-reviewed work, as if-gasp-holding the author responsible for the work, makes it a personal attack now–and there’s some rumblings about race and black romance writers that even I am not brave enough to go within several blogs’ distance of. Or rather, I am that brave, I’m just not that stupid. (Okay, now I have to say something or you’ll all think I’m hiding an evil, racist secret. But all I will say is that I don’t care if you’re black, blue, or green, if you write good books you deserve to have it acknowledged, and if you don’t you deserve to be panned or ignored, but readers have a right to not read books with plots that don’t interest them–I wouldn’t read a “secret baby” book unless my life depended on it, personally.

Sorry this is so short, but I really have been playing in Blogland a little too much over the last hour or two-that c-word article took some time-so I should get some actual work done. It occured to me recently that if I want to be a writer I do need to actually do some of that pesky writing, so I shall go do that now.
