The Smut Relay

Smut Relay

A relay race is a racing competition where members of a team take turns completing parts of racecourse or performing a certain action.

Since a marathon is an athletic event, I have decided to stay in athletic terms for my next project. This project will be called the ‘Smut Relay’.

What is the Smut Relay?

The Smut Relay is a race for everyone who writes erotic stories. It works the same as a relay race, when you have the baton, you do what you have to do to complete your part of the race and hand the baton over to the next person. It’s as easy as that. Every writer of erotic stories can participate.

How does the Smut Relay work?

It’s much easier than it sounds. I write the first part of a story and then give the baton – in the form of this first part – over to a next writer. The next writer adds a part and then gives the baton over to the next. And so forth.

Since this is a project many people will work on, there has to be some rules to make sure the relay runs in an orderly way.

What are the rules of the Smut Relay?

When you say yes to writing the next part of the story, you agree to do the following:

1. You have three weeks to add a piece of between 750-1000 words. You can post your part of the story as soon as you are done. You don’t have to wait until the three weeks are over.

2. The part you write has to be a clear follow-up of the previous part(s), in other words, you have to continue the plot. You can add new elements, like a new twist, a flashback or even a flash forward. Follow your imagination. Be creative. Just always leave something the next author can elaborate on.

3. Your story is posted on your own site, but I will also post it on the Smut Marathon site. On the Smut Marathon site I will add links to your website and social accounts, and a short text (50-100 words) about you as an author, which you will provide.

4. Your story title starts with ‘Smut Relay part ?’, where the ‘?’ is replaced with the number of the part you have written, and you can add your own title after that, for example: Smut Relay part 10 – The devilish grin.

5. The first line of your story will be ‘Continued from Smut Relay part ? by …‘ and you will link back to the previous part. The last line of your story will be ‘To be continued: Smut Relay part ? by …‘ and when the next piece is up, you will add the link. That way all parts can be found.

6. You are responsible for finding someone to continue the story. We will have a ‘pool’ of writers you can choose from, but you can also ask someone who is not part of the pool. Just make sure they know the rules and follow them. You are allowed to ask someone to add a second part, but let’s try to avoid this until at least all writers in the pool have added a piece.

7. You place the badge of the Smut Relay (see above) at the bottom of your post and link back to the the Smut Relay page.
I will also add all parts of the Smut Relay story to the Smut Relay page, so all stories can be found in one place.

Sign up for the writers pool

If you are interested in adding a part to the Smut Relay, please take a moment to sign up in the writers pool. This way other writers will know that they can approach you to write a part. The names of writers in the pool will be listed on the Smut Relay page.

Please note:
If you don’t have a website of your own, you can still participate in the Smut Relay. Your part of the story will then only be posted on this site.

I am sure a unique story will come from the Smut Relay!

Happy writing!
