I had three messages this morning. One was someone volunteering to be a beta-reader and the other two were feedback on my story, “My Daughter Interrupts My Work”.
Loved this… Maybe have daddy a lil Dom persona?? Teach daughter some limitations…
Oh my gosh the story about Jillian just drove me over the edge! You are very good at this… You made me very hot. I would love to talk to you about other stories you have written.
I replied to the second commenter:
I was in the middle of writing another story when the idea for that story came to mind and I couldn’t get it out of my head. I thought it was a very hot story, but it hasn’t been nearly as popular as my other stories.
The second commenter sent me a couple of emails and I replied:
> I loved it!!
> How do you get inspiration for your stories? Are they all from experience?
All from my imagination. The idea for a story will just pop into my head. I’ll spend some time working it out, expanding things and then I’ll decide if the story works or not. I have at least a half-dozen stories that I have plotted out in my head and have started on, but haven’t finished. Most are brother-sister stories. In real life, I don’t have a sister.
> I shouldn’t have bothered you… I’m sure you tons of emails every day about your stories…
Actually, I rarely get emails, which is sad as comments and emails are my only rewards for writing and are what most motivate me to write. I think the more established writers on LitE that regularly publish stories get lots of emails, but I don’t published often enough to have much of an audience.
If you ever read a story you like, write a comment or send the author a PM telling them how much you like the story.
