This week’s Erotic Journal Challenge prompt is “Reading.”
Reading can spur a lot of erotic emotions, thoughts, and actions. Write about the books, magazines, or other reading materials that have shaped your sexuality.
Okay…so for anyone who’s been reticent to get involved in this project because it might get too heavy, this one is just plain fun! Think about the first time you every read something sexy. Or the books you’ve loved over the years and that have had a sexual impact you. Maybe there’s a book that taught you a lot or one that you remember getting off to on a regular basis. Whatever the content…give it a share!
The nuts and bolts of the challenge:
Each week, I will post a topic or question that I plan to explore in my own journal. I’m going to post them and add a link-up (my first ever!) so that readers can get in on the challenge, too. I encourage you to respond in whatever way seems most authentic – a journal entry, drawing, photo, video, story, poem…ANYTHING that can be posted on your website. Then, link your post here. This is your interpretation, whatever the prompt inspires in you.
I’ll post the prompts sometime on Saturday each week (I like to sleep in, so be patient), and the link-up will remain open until the following Sunday at 11:55 pm (Pacific time). This means you have two weekends and the week to write, so hopefully that will give everyone plenty of time.
I have enough prompts to run the challenge all year! So, gear up for some deep introspection if you plan to participate. I loves me some confessional writing!
Please contact me with questions, comments, or any great prompts you think should be part of the experience.
Upcoming and past prompts can be viewed on The Erotic Journal Challenge homepage. Our next topic is “Reading,” followed by “Films and TV.”
I’m not a stickler for rules…I like people to write what feels good to them and share, because all of our stories matter. Take this post/challenge whatever way works for you. Just remember to…

(Remember that I have a free InLinkz account, which means at least one of these link-ups is going to be an ad. I’m sorry about that, but I’m not willing to pay the $8 per month it costs to get rid of it.)
The link-up will remain open until next Sunday at 11:55 pm (PST).
