My husband has referred to something repeatedly over the last week or so that I just feel driven to talk about.
After a phonecall with a friend, advice and support from others, and opportunities offered, he has found himself commenting repeatedly that the openness just is suprising. There’s no cattiness, no selfish tendancies, just an open, welcoming, and supporting community. And that kind of community does not fit the stereotype he had, apparently.
I’m not sure if he means the erotica community, or the writer community at large. It certainly doesn’t fit the at large community, in my eyes. I have been deliberately been steered wrong in the past, but not by an erotica writer. But that’s neither here nor there.
Are we all just falling, unintentionally, into this group because we ARE the open welcoming sort and therefore we are finding each other through the internet?
I’m curious. What do you think? Why is this nice tight group forming? Is it because of our Queen Trollop herself, who has created something of a playground for both experienced and amateur writers, and shows that there’s room for all of us in the world?
So what do you think? Do we just attract each other? Or is it just the nature of writers of erotica to shed stereotypes in their pursuit of the illumination of our sheer humanity through our intimate encounters?
