Smut Marathon 2018

IMG_6383The 2018 Smut Marathon is about to being, and I am delighted to be involved for the first time. In a moment of ‘let’s do something new’ I put my name down and now here I am wondering what on earth I’ve done.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with the concept of the Smut Marathon, please do visit the official site for a thorough explanation, including a list of this year’s entrants, judges and how you can get involved as a reader.

I will give a brief overview for those of you who hate clicking on links or just have to know right this second what all the fuss is about, but I would urge you to give the site a visit and find out more.

Smut Marathon is an annual competition for erotic writers, from those who just trying their hand at it right through to those who have more experience.

As per the rules our assignment for each round will be published anonymously, so I won’t be urging you all to vote for my piece in each round,  however, I will be urging you to get involved and vote for your favourite piece of writing. The first round of voting begin on 11th February and I will be getting my first assignment Sunday 28th and writing will commence very soon after it is received

This will challenge me as a writer on many levels, as my blog posts and my erotica reflects, short and brief is not my strong point. Unfortunately long enough for a decent novel seems to slip me by as well, no matter how often I try to channel my inner novelist. I will however be pushed to write within a given limit. While this isn’t the only challenge I will face, I think it is my biggest.

I will be supporting the Smut Marathon until the very end, whether I remain in the competition or not. I would be delighted if some of my readers here would join me in supporting the other writers too, some are names I know well from my years of perusing Twitter, some are new found internet friends and many are going to be new discoveries for me. Whoever they are though and however long their Smut Marathon journey is, I wish them all the best and can’t wait to read all the submissions over the coming weeks.

    1. I think being enthusiastic and cheering on the other entrants is half the fun to be honest. That’s not to say I won’t be disappointed to leave earlier than some, but that will just be a good reason to return next year to give it another try =D
