Cold nights and hot porn

Hey, January is supposed to be the most depressing month of the year but I must disagree with this.

For me this January is the most depressing month in the Millennium.

Why? Well. I’m missing my lovely girlfriend Ms Hastings. She and hubbie have gone skiing. I imagine her in her tight fitting ski pants slaloming around mounds and crevices that aren’t mine.

Then, there’s the weather. When my book makes me rich I’ll be somewhere warm about now. Florida maybe, perhaps Spain, or will South America twang my thong? Who knows but I desperately want to be somewhere sunny, bright and oh so warrrrrrmmmmm! Instead I’m freezing my arse off along the Brighton prom. As you know I love this sexy city but, at this time of the year most interesting things (apart from my nipples) shrink in the cold.

One thing that is sadly decreased is my enthusiasm for doing any work. So although I dream about what I’ll do when the book’s finished all I’m doing at the moment is dreaming.

I really hope Morgan (my co-writer) is burning the midnight oil (at least he’ll be warm) but the last time I spoke to him he said he was busy writing ads for the worst client in the world. Now, most advertising clients are bastards so these suckers must be really special. Apparently they’re big on lavatory cleaners – write your own jokes!

Speaking of being creative I have done one positive writing thing, I’ve posted two of my short stories on a site called UKAuthors. You can find them by going to www.ukauthors.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=18295. Yea, it looks confusing but it works.

They are in the erotica section, naturally – why, did you think I’d be in Romance? You put them on the site and other writers comment on them. I thought it would be interesting to see whether my idea of erotic writing rocked people or repelled them.

Actually everyone was very cool and sophisticated and I was encouraged by their fairly enthusiastic response. My critics were more concerned by my misuse of commas and semi-colons than my character’s misuse of cunts so I think we might have the right balance of prose and porn in the book.

You move up a chart based on how many people read your piece during the week and I got to number one. How about that, Sadie’s on top for once?

I'll be in France when you read this. Hopefully my writing abilities will be re-charged in the land of Hugo, Verne, Sartre and the Marquis de Sade. Certainly my spirits will be as I’m holidaying with my very good friend Monsieur Jacques Daniel.

Au revoir

Love & kisses Sadie xxxx
