Paranormal Erotica: Sketches and Short Short Stories (1000-1500 words each) - Tuesday publication - (adult content required)
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
I seek a female creative writer who is interested in exploring the many faces of paranormal and supernatural sexuality through a succession of short, explicit, colorful sketches and short short stories that are tied together by a common female protagonist.
Your first piece should be the introduction of your protagonist. Who is she? What is she?
Please note that your protagonist is a three dimensional being. The short format certainly does not allow for longwinded character development but it is perfectly suited for strategically placed nuggets which, combined, give us the various character dimensions of your protagonist.
And consider that while your protagonist is paranormal she is also human and she lives in the human world and this is a situation that needs to be dealt with on a daily basis.
And consider that this first piece only provides the ground work, the foundation of your character, and that you will have ample opportunity in successive pieces to place further strategic nuggets that, and the end of this project, have revealed to us exactly your protagonist is.
So, the first piece is the foundation. The following nine pieces will then sketch up various instances of your protagonists world and sex life, which, when completed and taken as a whole, will put up a fully rounded -- but sketchy -- glimpse of your protagonists life and times.
In fact, if you want, you can look upon this project as one story, and each sketch is but a nuance or an angle of that same story. This could be the story of just one day in your protagonists life.
Does every piece need to be sexual? No.
The word count for each piece should be 1000-1500 words. Payment per piece is $15, including fees. This project is for 10 pieces. When complete we should have on our hands an erotic novellette, a stand-alone and fully rounded piece of erotic paranormal literary fiction that will be made available for free download from Erotic Aria later on.
This is a slow project. You are to publish only 1 piece per week, every Tuesday, for 10 successive weeks. The site offers scheduled publishing which allows you to post more than one piece at a time but to schedule their publication for successive Fridays.
Please make sure to visit http://eroticaria.com before you bid on this project, to make sure you agree with how we handle things. Please also note that Erotic Aria just went from Alpha to Beta, we are semi-public now but expect to go properly public through gentle promotion late in March.
Please note that Erotic Aria is a very public site built in such a way that everything posted can be shared on social networks and located through search engines. The long term goal of the site, in working long-term with individual authors, is to enhance online awareness of their writings. This project is therefore not at all suited for authors who seek anonymity.
YOUR EROTIC ARIA PROFILE
You will be required to create your own profile on Erotic Aria through which you publish your writings. Please visit my profile http://eroticaria.com/Jen to understand what an Erotic Aria profile looks like.
If you are not willing to maintain a profile you should not apply to this project.
IS ENGLISH NOT YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE?
We absolutely welcome approaches from women who don't have English as their primary language and/or who live in countries and/or cultures that don't adhere to accepted Western standards. However, we require an above average command of the English language and absolute honesty about your country and culture and heritage.
ABOUT THE SITE
Erotic Aria is an almost-public but already budding literary social hub for writers and readers of erotica, paranormal erotica and the very very personal blog.
YOUR SEXUAL TEXT
Your sexual text should be explicit and you should always call a spade a spade and you should never shy away from colorful, descriptive language and you are of course free to use coarse language but your choice of words should never be vulgar, obscene, degrading, violent, filthy or discusting - in other words, no smut.
Payments will be issued at the rate of $15 per published story, including fees. On the day the story is published you should send me a payment reminder through the oDesk message system. It is not rude to send a payment reminder - quite the contrary, it is very necessary and simply ensures that you get paid on time.
All writers must adhere to certain guidelines.
ABOUT YOUR APPLICATION
Please tell me a little about yourself and your thoughts on this project, and please submit a sample of the kind of writing the site might expect to see from you.
Thank you for reading.
