Smut Marathon 2018: Results round 8

The assignment for the quarter finals was to write about two strangers stuck in a confined space, and to use dialogue to tell the story. All writers really did a good job, thinking out of the box to make their stories stand out. Like in previous round, this round too I kept a close eye on the results to monitor who was in the danger zone, and was surprised to see the same names popping up from the beginning,. I will give you some insight in that later on in this post. Let’s first get to the official part of this round.

Smut Marathon 2018: Voting Round #8

Fifteen writers entered the eighth round – the quarter finals – when they received the assignment on 19 August. It seemed easy enough, but the challenge was to change a seemingly simple assignment into a story that will capture your reader’s attention. You, as the readers, may decide whether the writers have succeeded in the challenge by reading the fourteen stories below and voting for the three you like best. The assignment A man and a woman (strangers to each other) are stuck in a lift for hours. What happens while they are there? What do they say? What do they do? Please use at least 30% of dialogue in your story and for this round no scenes that can

Smut Marathon 2018: Results round 7

Round 7 is the first round of the Smut Marathon where writers receiving the least points (jury and public combined) are knocked out of the Smut Marathon. Since only 15 writers go through to round eight (which officially is the quarter final), it means that three writers are knocked out in this round. During the voting round, each time I got the votes from the jury members, I took the standings of the public votes and that of the jury, and checked who where at the bottom of the rankings. Three writers remained at the bottom until the last jury member’s votes came in. Then, one person was ‘saved’ from elimination and allowed to go through to the quarter finals.

Smut Marathon 2018: Voting Round #7

We have reached the seventh voting round of the Smut Marathon 2018, and the first round where we don’t work with a points classification anymore, but where writers with the least points (jury and public combined) at the end of this voting round, will be knocked out. We started off with twenty writers, but only eighteen has sent in their assignments, which means three writers will not go through to round eight. The assignment Write a story where this image by Molly Moore is your inspiration. This means that somewhere in your story there should be a mention of this image. How the writers mentioned the image was totally up to them, whether they used the scene in the image

With round 6, we have reached the last round of the classification, where writers could accumulate points to help them through to the elimination rounds (rounds 7 -10) of the Smut Marathon.

There are some writers that have shown such a huge growth from the moment they started in

Smut Marathon 2018: Results round 5

There were mixed feelings about this round, and that is totally understandable, as it was not an easy task. Not only did the writers have to use the words of someone else, but they also had to tell the same story from the perspective of an inanimate object. When a good amount of people choose the same story to ‘rewrite’, it can become boring, but what I loved was the absolute creativity of the writers to, despite choosing the same story, craft some totally different stories from that. You’ve done well! All writers go through to round 6, and that round is the last round in which we work with a classification. As from round 7, which we start with

Smut Marathon 2018: Voting Round #5

We had thirty writers at the start of this writing round, but during this round, five writers have decided to withdraw from the Smut Marathon. Each writer has his/her own reason to either continue or stop with the marathon. Sometimes the marathon is not what they had expected it to be, which is something that saddens me at times, but I know that no matter how I do this and what the rules are, I cannot please everyone, even though that is actually my nature. Other times life just takes over. Family members get ill and need attention, and those attention is always more important than continuing with the marathon. Other times, the prompt just doesn’t work for someone or

I am delighted to introduce two new sponsors to you this week: Tabitha Rayne and Rocks Off. Before I tell you what the prizes are (even though you might start suspecting it when you carry on reading, let me allow Tabitha to tell you more: ‘I’m a huge fan of erotic writing and absolutely love Smut Marathon. I’m delighted that my Ruby Glow vibrator is sponsoring the event as it truly was invented to ease my sexual tension as I wrote filthy sex words and wriggled in my chair looking for some relief while still being able to type. I thought it would be a simple case of popping online and buying something but I couldn’t find what I was
