I'm an almost thirty year old engineer from the northern parts of Europe that enjoys reading erotic and especially romantic stories. Thinking I should give something back to the community I started writing in the beginning of 2006.
I do enjoy writing but I found it challenging. Not because I had not written anything in fifteen years or that English is not my primary (or secondary) language, but because I am one of those challenged people. I suffer from disorder called dysgraphia. Dysgraphia is like dyslexia but for writing and makes "spontaneously written work is illegible." I have been in endless therapy and my editors are making heroic efforts to conceal my damaged brain. For more information on dysgraphia see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dysgraphia.
Writing may be challenging, but I do like a challenge. After four nights of writing and four months of editing I finally posted my first erotic story called "The Unexpected Visitor". It quickly became much more popular than I could have ever expected, it even reached number nine on the "Recent Top Stories".
I also received a lot of positive feedback. I like getting feedback but some of it were a bit discerning.
Finding out that some find my story "perfect" is really making me lose motivation. I'm not writing to get brown-nosing praise, if I did I would write something tacky like erotic fiction. Ooops I do write tacky erotic fiction, but what I mean is that I'm more in this too improve as a writer. Finding out that there is nothing to improve is not helping my motivation.
Instead I'm begging you to scrutinise my stories and send me the vilest and nastiest, but still honest, critique you can come up with. Don't worry about hurting my feelings, I'm a bit of verbal masochist, and even if it actually did hurt me I have a Teflon hat so it comes of quite easy.
Now go read my stories and send feedback, post haste.
