Writing allows you to share the wonders of your imagination. But many lack the confidence to express their thoughts in words. So here are 10 tips to help those who’d like to start writing, erotic or otherwise…
1 - Storytelling is the gift of new imaginings
We read stories because they give us a chance to imagine something we’ve never thought of before. A writer gives their readers a recipe of settings, characters and events and says: here, visualise this.
Writing is meant to be read. Seduce your reader, don’t baffle them with complicated words or overly complicated plots, or drench them in a deluge of descriptive adjectives. Allow your readers’ imaginations to fill the gaps between your words.
Don’t worry if you’re sexually inexperienced and you’re writing about sex. I’m pretty sure sci-fi authors don’t own spaceships and J.K Rowling has never cast a magic spell. It’s far more important to be able to use your imagination to create compelling happenings, ones readers will care enough about to invest their precious time and mental energy to recreate inside their heads. And if you really want to become more creative, sign up for improv classes.
Folks welcomed the hand reference I posted, so here’s some foot reference.
As an artist you’ll draw A LOT of feet, especially feet that REST ON THE GROUND. Don’t be one of those artists who hides feet behind grass or mist all the time. Print these out and draw ‘em.
I included the knees because you’ll need to know how feet connect with legs; draw ‘em up to the knee.
Exposition du Centenaire de la Lithographie (1895). Frédéric Hugo d’Alési (Romanian-French, 1849-1906). Colour lithograph. V&A.
A poster advertising a centennial exhibition of Lithography at the Galerie Rapp, Paris, in 1895. Frédéric d’Alési worked mainly in Paris. In this Paris scene (the Eiffel Tower is in the distance), he depicts a fashionably dressed woman of the 1890s admiring prints at an outdoor print booth. Although the place where the exhibition is being held - Galerie Rapp - is mentioned, no dates or opening times appear.
