Last year my wife’s bosses were purged at her company. new bosses were brought in and they began removing anyone left from the old structure. My wife was given a bullshit performance review and told it was in her best interest to move on.
My wife is looking into other jobs but in the meantime, we decided that I should re-enter the workforce. Writing porn is nice but it seriously does not pay the bills. Like, not remotely.
I still plan to write porn. Writing will always be my passion. I wrote so much porn when I was working seven days a week at a factory job, so I know it is doable. I just need to temper my expectations.
Right now, there will not be a Vaquel story for March. The past month has been stressful and my writing time has been replaced with worrying time. Fear not! I actually have the next three stories mapped out, so it is just a matter of getting my mojo back. I will also keep journalling and updating the blog because I like sharing whatever weird shit I come across with you.
I currently have a job interview tomorrow. I trend to ace reviews and quite frankly, the place appears to be in “Hire any warm body” mode so I am hopeful I will get it. Getting a job will be a huge stress-reducer and I am sure I will get back to a regular writing schedule.
One thing I highly doubt I will do anymore are interactive erotica books. They take half a year to write and that was when I had no job at all. I just don’t see doing that anymore. And maybe that isn’t a bad thing. My latest book, “Be the Supervillain” is greatly under performing my previous interactive erotica books.
Something I do think I will be doing is creating more writing games. I greatly enjoy making “Traveling the Planes of Desire” and I am playtesting my next game, “Your Demon Lover”. Writing games are lovely because I feel like they are blueprints for others to write their own smut. The more people writing porn, the better.
So that is all for now. I hope you will stay with me as I shift to this new schedule.
