Smut Marathon 2019

Smut Marathon 2019: Enter now!

Only two weeks ago the Smut Marathon 2018 ended, and here we are, kicking off the next edition of the marathon! You can now enter for the Smut Marathon 2019! Before you enter, let me point out some things to you. The most important rule! Probably the MOST important thing of all is that you are not allowed to share anything of your entry until after the results of a voting round has been published. This rule is to keep the competition fair to all participants, and I urge you to abide by it, as breaking this rule can result in disqualification. Assignments A tip I always give in all my assignment mails, is to start writing as soon as

Three days people, only three more days to sign up for the Smut Marathon 2019! Go on, quickly sign up and then come back to meet the fourth jury member (Bee was the first, Jaime Mortimer second and Charlie Powell the third) for this year’s marathon: Chris McClennan, who for many long years has been known to me as Stranded in Toronto, and who I still call ‘Stranded’ when I talk about him!

In the meantime, allow me to welcome our third jury member (Bee was the first, Jaime Mortimer the second) to introduce herself. Charlie Powell is no stranger to the Smut Marathon, as she was the first runner up in the Smut Marathon 2018 and this year she decided to see how things are on the other side of the fence. Hi friends, I sort of envy the year of writing you’re about to embark on. I did it myself in 2018, and I

Reflection on the Smut Marathon 2018

Smut Marathon 2018: A Reflection

The first Smut Marathon is done, and I am looking back on this year with a feeling of intense pride. Pride for the writers who have taken on the challenge, and who kept on challenging themselves over and over again, even though they knew elimination might lie right around the corner! Pride for the jury members who have done a great job in judging the stories and for those who have taken the time to write feedback! Pride for the public who supported the writers and the marathon by reading and voting, even though there was a lot to read! And last but not least, pride for our sponsors for providing prizes for the winner and two runners up. Without

Smut Relay Part 13 – Reunited by Name Unmentionable

Continued from Smut Relay Part 12 – The Turning Tide by Brigit Delaney Ben tried to stay resolute, but Elly’s decades of experience soon got the better of him and he was unable to deny her. There was something about the way she positioned her lips, her tongue, her teeth. He wasn’t the only one who noticed. Elita watched Elly. The way she expertly glided around the head of his cock before taking him deep into her throat only to hold a moment until he was just on the edge of release. She knew when to add her hands to edge him even further, and she always knew when to back off. It had been years since Elita had gotten

We have a winner for the Smut Marathon 2018!

Smut Marathon 2018: The Winner!!!

I sit here, staring at a blank screen and just one thought keeps on repeating in my mind: the Smut Marathon 2018 is really over. I can hardly believe it! I have mixed feelings about this: a tinge of sadness, a moderate out of satisfaction and I am so proud I could burst. Proud of all the writers from beginning to end for doing an excellent job; proud of the jury members for all their hard work, proud of the public support for the marathon and yes, also a bit proud of myself for running this. I have said before and I will say again: there will be a 2019 edition of the Smut Marathon. Entries will open on 15

Smut Marathon 2018: Final Voting Round

Oh gosh! Seriously! I can’t believe this is the final round of the very first Smut Marathon! For four years I have done this for the Dutch community, and here I am, looking back on a year of BRILLIANT stories. There are no words to describe just what the Smut Marathon means to me. Just yesterday, Liza Daen (friend and jury member) asked me why I do the marathon. Okay, this was not about the Smut Marathon, but about me thinking of hosting a Dutch marathon again, but the answer still applies to the Smut Marathon too. She wanted to know what the marathon brings me. My answer was: it’s giving people a platform to showcase their writing, but also

Jobs for Characters

We give the characters in our stories thoughts and words and a personality, but why not give them a job too? Of course the job your character does can say something about them too, but it can also open your plot up for some interesting twists and turns, and interactions with others on the work floor. Below you will find a list with jobs for different genres, different time settings… from silversmith to pilot, from witch to pastor. So, how does your character earn a living?
