Get Someone Else to Write Your IdeabyBuckyDuckman©
Got a great idea for a story, but lack the time or skills to write it yourself? Then you need to head over to the Story Ideas forum provided by Literotica.com. Post your idea, maybe answer a few questions about it, and you just might attract an author. Here's a short primer with a few do's and don'ts to help you attract an author who wants to tackle your Story Idea:
1. Surf to the Story Ideas thread. It's inside the Main Literotica Forums. Wait, where are those? Remember the page that listed all the story categories? At the top of the page, you'll see the words Bulletin Board, click there. The Story Ideas forum is about halfway down the page.
2. Wait, you're not a forum member? Maybe you are, maybe you're not. Did you ever register with Literotica.com? If you did, the same log-in information you use before leaving high ratings and nice comments works for the Forums, too. Signing up for Lit is free. They don't use your information for anything.
3. What? Why should you want to be a Literotica member? Aside from being allowed to post in the forums, you'll want to be a member so you can stop leaving anonymous comments on the stories you read. Oh wait, you sometimes LIKE to leave anonymous comments? Fine, then don't log-in on those days and be anonymous. If nothing else, you can do like lots of people do: they set-up a free, online only, email account and hide behind a fake name (pseudonym).
4. Okay, you're signed up, logged in, and you've cruised to the Story Ideas forum. Once you're there, take a moment to scan through the sticky threads: "Welcome to Story Ideas!" and "Friendly Reminders." You might want to check out some of the other story idea threads other people have started. Why not? You're already there, you know?
5. Ready to post your story idea? Cool, in the upper left corner of the page, you'll see a button that reads "New Thread." Click there and you can start your very own thread with your very own story idea. Here are some nuts and bolts about attracting attention to your post.
6. Give your new story idea a subject line that gives writers an idea about your idea. You'll have more space to expand on the idea in the body of your message, but - for now, just a few words in the titles will help. Maybe you already have a title worked out: you can use that. Think of your subject line as a headline. Please me more descriptive than "Story Idea" or "Writer Wanted." Those are lame. It's the freakin' "Story Ideas" thread, of course you have a story idea and want a writer. Oh, and if you haven't noticed, on most browsers, just hovering your cursor/mouse over the subject line shows the first few lines of the message body. So, give yourself a half decent subject line and worry about the rest in a minute.
7. Flesh out your idea. Be as specific as you want, but say something! Here are a few examples of how NOT to post an idea:
I'm actually looking for someone (man or woman) to do a guided masturbation for me. I love to hear moaning during it too. Um, what KIND of guided masturbation? Are you a man or a woman? See how little that helps?
Hi am looking for someone on lit to write me a story? PM me if your interested.Again, how helpful is that? What kind of story do you want? A space alien gangbang? Lesbian sisters? Dominating femdom? Gay guys in a shower?
Here's another example of a story idea that no one cared about: I have a number of Ideas for some stories, unfortunetly I have no writing skills, I am seeking either Female or Male Co Author, to write thestories for me. I preffer someone with Experience, Gender of the Author is not Inportant as longas they have Experience in writing. The Genere's of all my ideas are all Male Dom, Non Consenual, Blackmail etc. If you have any specific questions please feel free to PM me. Also please only reply if you have the time to do them and have Experience in writing Erotica. First, you have no writing skills but you want someone to co-author the story? Second, listing general themes isn't much of a suggestion.
8. You're trying to trigger a writer's muse to pay attention to your idea. Speaking from experience, I know my muse can be a fickle bitch at times. Sometimes, she gives me an idea and haunts me with it until I take a stab at writing it. But other times, she just sits there, filing her nails, waiting for me to do all the work. So, tease the bitch with the part that makes your story special. Here are a few examples for you:
Incest/Taboo Category: A brother finds the x-rated videos his cheerleader sister has made of herself and uses them to blackmail her into fucking and sucking him and his buddies.
In a retail store setting, a 20 yr. old worker thinks her older boss is pretty hot. They talk about everything and one day, their conversation gets out of hand. She starts wondering how far she can push things and teases him into jerking off for her. It works so well, she starts abusing him on a regular basis, making him jerk off for her and do all sorts of stuff like wear a butt plug at work or suck off her boyfriend or something.
Two college girl roommates visit a gloryhole together.
9. How much should you flesh out your idea? That's up to you. Some people include name suggestions, body descriptions, places, etc. What's important to you? What are the story elements that really get to you? Include them in your idea. Maybe you're drawing from real life or something close. Toss it into your idea. Here's a second take on the ideas I just listed:
Two college girls... can become something like: There's an adult bookstore near the campus where I live that has gloryholes and I know it's usually some guy on the other side, but I keep thinking how hot it would be if it was a girl or girls. Maybe a dare or a sorority hazing or they just got drunk or they just love sucking cock that much?
Taboo Category idea... can become something like: There's this stuck up cheerleader who lives down the block from me. She's fucking hot as hell, blonde hair, smoking tight body, all that. But she's a stuck up bitch and I want to see her get hers. So, I'm thinking maybe she has a brother and maybe her brother ends up blackmailing her into sex? Maybe he's a computer nerd and has to fix her computer and he finds some x-rated pictures of her on her computer or something?
10. So, what happens after you post your idea? Quite often, that's just the beginning of the fun. People love to toss around ideas, including yours. Other writers or just Story Idea trolls might comment on your idea, fleshing it out and sometimes taking it in directions that feel weird to you. Feel free to add to your own post! Point out the extra ideas that sound good or the extra ideas that don't work for you. It's your idea and people will respect your opinion about YOUR idea.
11. Enable private messaging. You do it from your profile. Some writers will want to contact you off the forum to flesh out the idea and ask a question or two. It's a good way to have a conversation.
12. But that's not MY idea! You're right. Remember the fickle bitch of a muse I mentioned earlier? Sometimes, she'll see a story idea suggestion, have her own opinion about how it should go, and I'm off, trying to get the story out of my head. I've had stories that have taken unexpected twists and turns, ending in a place quite different than where I started. It's the nature of the craft. If you want someone to write a story for you, about your ideas, to your specifications, then you're looking for a ghost writer. Otherwise, enjoy!
