Interviewed by Ashley!

I'm so honored to be the interview subject (or, since I'm the interviewee rather than the interviewer, do I mean "object"? or maybe "gerund"? "adverbial phrase"?) ... anyway, I am truly honored that the legendary Ashley Lister has interviewed me for the July installment of his "Between the Lines" column at the Erotica Readers & Writers Association website! I always love reading Ashley's various columns at ERWA—he's a paragon of writerly wisdom and dazzling wit—and it's a thrill to be the subject—er, to be his guest in one of them. The interview is about the writing process for my story "Impressionism," in which an art dealer arranges a few special, ahem, exhibits.

For those not already familiar with ERWA: It's a wonderful, free resource that is an immense boon to the erotic writing (and reading) community. I visit constantly for the reviews, the comprehensive listings of submissions opportunities, and of course the variety of terrific articles. This month, for example, in addition to those by Ashley, you'll find columns by Hanne Blank, Amie M. Evans, Ann Regentin, Jean Roberta, and Donna George Storey.

What a great interview! I loved reading about your writing process. Do you always have a tube of glue in your hand?

Jeremy Edwards said...

Thanks, KM! : )

Do you always have a tube of glue in your hand?

No, sometimes it's in my other hand.

KM said...

Interesting! In my quest for British slang, I learned that "tube of glue" is Cockney rhyming slang for "clue." It's good to know that you've always got a clue. Glueless would be clueless -- at least across the pond.

It was like seeing inside your brain!

Good work, both of you!!

Fantastic! Very entertaining and interesting.

I really liked your point about structure and how some stories seem to evolve organically and others are comprised of bits you've somehow got to piece together. I'm currently working on a short and feeling a tad glueless so it was nice to see the distinction set out so clearly. Ta very much! I saw daylight!

Your story sounds most intriguing.

Thanks, everyone!! : )

JE,
I'm so sorry I was behind the eight ball reading this. Very cool and very interesting. Congratulations. Kudos. I love hearing about how other writer's find their muse.

Both you and KM tipped me off to Donna George Storey's sexy, Farmer's Market piece, and I've linked that story to my blog; keeping with the sexy fruit theme for the holiday weekend.

I hope all is well. I've been following you via AT blog. ;-)
