    Another new fish in the sea

    Hello, everyone,

    I'm more of a lurker, but I thought I'd formally introduce myself, and hopefully come out of hiding every once in a while! I recently ventured into writing erotica. Already, several members here have been extremely helpful in answering questions. This is a wonderful community, and I look forward to being a part of it.

    Welcome! I've also written an erotic novel, which was tremendous fun. I'll never again be afraid to write a sex scene!

    Thanks for the welcome, Atlanta. I also live in Oregon.

    I'm STILL scared of sex scenes, lol! I never anticipated writing in this genre, especially the dark erotica genre, but I had an idea one day and that was that. It's been a bit of an aventure, and yeah, I do have to admit it was fun.
