I don't want to put them up for free yet, but it's not so easy to find a publishing venue fit for

- a horror-ish story about a woman who dates her own clone
- a pulp-detectivey modern-day erotic short story
- an slice-of-life erotic short story - no real content beyond the characters, the sex and its negotiation

That first one... any of the old pulp sci-fi mags still accepting submissions? Amazing, If, Astounding... hell if I know who/what the names are. But that sounds like something Amazing would have taken back in the day.

By the way, what happened to that story you were posting on Wattpad? Time and other interests got in the way? 'Cause that happens.

Hardcore focus on an older universe. I can't quite find my angles on 'Seeds' because I kept getting distracted by the other project. And then I yanked it down in response to that scraping issue, and dumped it onto [personal profile] menagerie_fics until I can find time to reformat it and continue.

The verse I am working on instead is eating my brain, because a lot of the reworking I am doing to expand one character and the social context of the story is screwing with my actual OC. It's SO HARD to rework a universe, and figure out the new stimuli to produce things that are so BASIC to the character that you can't bear to edit them out.

OC? Are you writing in a universe established by someone else, but with a new character?

Not really? I tend to say OC instead of muse quite a bit, because I do write fanfic in addition to original verses. The actual title for this one in particular would be 'pain in the rear that occasionally eats my brain or takes over my life' if I were perfectly honest. But that's a bit much even if I abbreviated it. He is a Main Character in the most annoyingly 'pay-attention-to-me' way possible.

Muse is ... character that is very strongly a piece of my brainstorming for the universe I am working in? In a lot of ways, this character is THE character around which the universe evolved, so his characteristics are harder for me to be willing to change. It's like having a voice inside my head when I go to write that tells me how the character should be written. Like your Thelema, I think, the story is his, so if I change the background from before he's on stage, it... gets sticky.

I may take you up on the brainstorming some time later. Right now, I really ought to get my tail to bed, as I have work in less than 12 hours.

Many good thoughts to your submissions!
