Just got this email from my BDSM buddy Mistress Lorelei (look up her books at Amazon), and I thought it would help the habitues of SOL appreciate just how good they have it here. The personal stuff has been redacted:
I'm in LA for the week ... Christ, what an existential nightmare this city is! Mostly I'm staying in the hotel (a motel in an industrial park on Orange County) and editing really bad porn -- no, nothing I wrote; I get paid to edit such deathless prose as "The memory of the indent of the metal key in her lip still haunted her in the form of a small scar just center in the meat of her lower lip."
That at least was relatively clear. On the other hand, it took me a while to figure out "Though writing for his first love, women, by far fueled his passions."
