I like Boosh butts and I cannot lie.

Is it a man, is it a woman? I don’t really give a fuck.

They are so tired.

But not to tired to give each other looks of love.

So, I’ve been “writing” a fic lately and it’s been a bitch because I always cock block myself (Is that even a thing? Or better, does it mean what I think it does?). I want to write - let’s face it - smut and all of the sudden one of the characters has a mental break down. I honestly sit in front…

If you’d like me to take a look and try to help you out, message me.

I have little advice but feel your pain. It’s why most of my stories end up Regency Romance style. Then when I do write smut it ends up feeling way too self-revealing. The one thing I find works is a ridiculously pampering bubble bath and putting myself in a romantic-type mindset.

First of all I have no idea how to answer the answered questions so I just copied them and we go from there (I’m old forgive me).

- Thank you concupiscence66, if I have anything I’m comfortable to share I’d like to take you up on that offer.

- Dear littleredchucks, thank you for the tip. Sadly, doing nice things for myself doesn’t get me to write anything. I’m just enjoying it and get nothing done.

derangedbutterfly answered: stop looking for examples in other fics and just look for stuff that turns you on. get yourself in the mood and your characters will follow!

- What turns me on? But… I’m Catholic! No, I’m not but sometimes I feel very ashamed of my writing and that transfers into my characters. That’s why I read other fics, to drain the shame from me (and also to expand my vocabulary).

heartrachel answered: sometimes it can help to start in the middle, and work outwards. if you know what smut you want to include, start there, and work backwards?

- No plot to begin the smut? I’m not sure if I can do that but I will give it a try. 

My, what a long post. Thank you all for your answers, you really helped me.

stop feeling ashamed right now! 

…oh wait, that doesn’t work if you’re Catholic.  never mind.  XD

this is all very good advice, though!  starting with the smut will be easier if you find a fic (or twelve) that really gets you in the mood.  remember that not only is it perfectly okay to be turned on, it’s kind of a necessity if you want to write good smut.  well-written smut will turn other people on too!  so go find some smut that turns you on, let it inspire you to write some more smut, which will then turn other people turned on, then they’ll be inspired to write more smut which you can then read for even more inspiration.

it’s the circle of smut.  (cue Lion King music)

I have this problem too on a regular basis! I am very slow at writing smut and I frequently do end up peeking at the screen through my fingers and feeling utterly horrified at what I’ve just written. Even though most of it is fairly vanilla… with the possible exception of Tony Harrison… Alcohol helps sometimes, and there are occasions when a well-paced and suggestive fade-to-black can be just as erotic as a full-on NC-17 scene, but mostly I just have to make myself visualise the sex (that’s the easy part) and then make myself describe what I can see (that’s the part where I get stuck for ages).

It helps that this is a lovely fandom and I get such nice feedback on my efforts even though I often write unpopular pairings rather than Howince. All part of the Circle of Smut!

Drop me a message if you ever need a beta reader or just a second opinion. I find other people’s stories much easier to deal with than my own!

Dear derangedbutterfly: Thanks to you, I’ve rewritten the lyrics to the Circle of Life. And yes, I’m proud of myself.

I have to write your words on a post it and stick it to my screen. “It is okay to be turned on”. Maybe if I read it everyday, I believe it eventually. I’m not being sarcastic, it’s just hard to get rid of the Catholic shame.

Dear nemeton: That is an accurate description of my writing process.  “What just leaked out of my brain onto the screen?” mostly followed by a “You filthy animal.” And it is not even dark, just two people enjoying themselves. Yep, visualising it is not the problem, describing it is. Sometimes I’m really tempted to stop and write “You know how sex works and they doing it now. A lot.” and be done with it.

That’s why I posted my problem, because this fandom is full of talented, helpful people and I’m glad to be part of it.

Thank you for your offer, if I have anything, I’ll let you know.

Now back to work. Or pleasure? Nope, it’s gonna be work. Dirty, hard work

I used to ALWAYS drink when I wrote smut.  It’s very normal to feel inhibited and if you don’t feel exposed, you probably aren’t putting enough of yourself into it!  Don’t worry about the sex.  Anything can be hot if it’s written with enough intensity.  Smut tends to fail when it sounds like an instruction manual.  Think about what you find sexy and WHY?  Some people are really into specific acts, some people are into scenarios and places, I’m really into the vulnerability.  There’s room for all kinds of smut, but the best smut comes from honesty.  Read scenes you find hot, but don’t worry about recreating anything about the style or technique, focus on what pushes your buttons.  I’m not Catholic, but I am ten kinds of repressed and I am usually less embarrassed by my smut than by the absurdly personal details that slip into my stories without me realizing I was writing about myself.

Don’t be embarrassed to send anything to me.  I would never judge someone unkindly for trying to grow as a writer.  If you have the sense to be concerned about the quality of your writing, its probably a lot better than you think it is.  

I just realised the whole ‘starting in the middle thing’ could be like writing an essay - only way more fun! Because you don’t often start with your introduction, you have a thesis statement and then you go straight into planning the body of the essay. So with smut it could be like having a statement of intent in your head of what you actually want to achieve like “Howard loses his virginity and Vince is sweet about it” or “Vince learns the hard way that he shouldn’t tease Howard about his leather kink” and then set a tone - sweet, sexy, dirty, sad, fun, combination of the above - and then you go on to say these are my main points, they shall be my paragraphs and they shall show a progression but stay true to the underlying thesis statement. I might try this and see how I go actually.

Dear concupiscence66: Alcohol does nothing for me, I can’t even tolerate the smell of it in food. Guess who is the designated driver among my friends?

I know exactly what I find sexy but describing that is a whole different thing. I worry about being judged for it as much as for my writing abilities. And yes, I’m also terrified about revealing anything personal. Which is odd, because I already told you/the fandom that I’m into smut, a “writer”, a nerd and a fangirl.

Thank you again for your offer. I’m currently working on this Dan/Jones short (among other things) and I could really use some help with it. As soon as the rough draft is finished, I let you know.

Dear littleredchucks: I like the idea of an essay. It takes away the pressure of being overly creative. Not that writing an essay is uncreative but I tend to come up with sub-plots, new characters and other stuff that has nothing to do with the original idea. So in my case saying “You have 1000 words, the mood is sweet, it must feature those characters and they have to have sex”, really helps. Who would have thought that smut needed any kind of structure?

My, this post gets longer and longer. Thank you all again for your help and kind words. I appreciate it.

Boosh Fic help.

So, I’ve been “writing” a fic lately and it’s been a bitch because I always cock block myself (Is that even a thing? Or better, does it mean what I think it does?). I want to write - let’s face it - smut and all of the sudden one of the characters has a mental break down. I honestly sit in front of my computer and scream “Stop being so fucking neurotic and get on with it!”. I even sent my friend the rough draft of a story and told her to add, well smut. I read other stories, made a playlist but nothing helped so far.

Any advise?

Noel and a teddy bear.

It’s less creepy when you pretend the teddy is encouraging him.

i’m not convinced that this is any less creepy.

I know… But I have to keep telling it to myself or the last parts of my innocence will die.

Nope, I’m not okay. Not at all.

concupiscence66 replied to your post “*vomits confetti*”

Even though it is well deserved, I’m always amazed by your confidence in your writing. I never write anything without wondering how many people are about to lose all respect for me!

Oh, Connie. *blushes* I don’t know if…

You are both amazing writers and I’m always excited when one of you puts up a new fic. Don’t doubt your talent, you have it.
