inspire me

This one’s a challenge to you, dear readers.

I’ve been invited to read some erotica at this Sunday’s Boston launch of the second issue of Salacious Magazine, the new queer porn mag on the block. I said yes, but the thing is, I haven’t written much of substance in quite some time, and I feel funny recycling older (if still unpublished) stories too many times.

Now, one of the things I’ve very much enjoyed doing in the last couple of years is writing super-short stories on a given theme, with a five- or ten-minute time limit. For some reason that particular exercise stokes my creative fires. (You can read the results of the last two times I did this here and here.)

So with that in mind, I’m inviting you to contribute your ideas. Give me a theme – one word is best, but no more than three. You can tweet them to me (@sexgeekAZ), e-mail them to me (veryqueer3 at yahoo dot ca), or post them in the comments here. Every day from now til Sunday, I’ll collect your themes, and I’ll take the three most inspiring and write a five-minute piece on each of them. If you leave me an e-mail address and I wrote on the theme you gave me, I’ll send you what I wrote, so you get it all to yourself for a few days. On Sunday, I’ll pick the best of the best and read them at the launch. That night, I’ll post them here.

Over to you, dear readers. Hit me with your best shot, and I’ll see if I can hit you back!
