September always feels like “back to school” even though I have been out of the classroom for many a moon. This is a strange year for those back to school vibes, considering the state of the world, so for the #Write Big Sexy Words – September Edition we are going with an academic theme; think Hogwart’s or Dead Poet’s Society, but sexier (and only with consenting adults!).
Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of a nerd, or because my own university education was very post modern, both in content and aesthetics, but I am so drawn to the look and feel and fantasy of the Ivy League aesthetic, (don’t get me started on the politics, privilege and inherent sexism, classism and racism of the academic institution as a whole!). I can easily get lost in a fantasy fictional world filled with crisp autumn days, Gothic architecture, and the smell of books. It’s also not a big leap to racier plots like being bent over a desk by a seductive professor, being inducted into a sexy secret society. The possibilities are endless.
Fiction isn’t the only appeal with #Write Big Sexy Words – September Edition: write what you know or share opinions on academia – all topics are welcome. The words I’ve chosen for the #Write Big Sexy Words – September Edition are a bit more challenging and obscure than the August words. In the spirit of focus and rigour, two things I know I personally need more of with my writing practice, I chose terms that will hopefully inspire and delight and be easily woven into all the filthy, sexy pieces you’re writing this month!
It couldn’t be easier: on the first of the month, each month, I share a blog post containing 9 big sexy words and their definitions, along with examples that use them in an erotic context. Feel free to use the words and phrases as writing or photo prompts or simply as a resource to bolster your vocabulary and add some new words to your already brilliant creative ideas.
