    Lolita (FPF 8)

    I’m paring two books today…the memoir Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books by Azar Nafisi and one of my favorite books of all time: Lolita by Vladamir Nabakov.     Anyone who has ever belonged to a book group must read this book. Azar Nafisi takes us into the vivid lives of eight women who must meet in secret to explore the forbidden fiction of the West. It is at once a celebration of the power of the novel and a cry of outrage at the reality in which these women are trapped. The ayatollahs don’ t know it, but Nafisi is one of the heroes of the Islamic Republic. —Geraldine…

    Bite-sized

    Accomplishments I have completed 7/100 stories for the #100StoryChallenge…all of which have been very different. I have posted 4 images for February Photofest. I published a story in Redemption Magazine. I published 14 posts as a result of the Erotic Journal Challenge, February Photofest, and the #100StoryChallenge. 3 posts per day is proving difficult (duh, I saw that coming), and yet somehow I also managed to tie a few of these in with other memes (Sinful Sunday, #SWAP, and Wicked Wednesday). However, I know I will have to continue to do a better job of “keeping things small” to maintain this sort of momentum. The goal this month was to…

    Yes and No

    “In the degree that we remember and retell our stories and create new ones, we become the authors, the authorities, of our own lives.” – Sam Keen     I think about the purpose of writing quite often. To communicate, to document, to keep track. Those are the obvious ones. When I wrote my masters thesis, a large part of my focus was “writing to learn.” That is often what I think journaling is all about…or at least what I believe it should be about. Not just documenting what happens, but digging. Writing until we uncover. Processing things as we go. Finding out what we think by writing our way there.…

    The inevitable slow down…

    “Furious activity is not substitute for understanding.” H.H. Williams     Last week’s review/preview was overwhelming, I know. For you…and for me. But, that’s how beginnings tend to be for me…fast, furious, manic…full of energy and possibility and want. And then reality slows my roll, and I find the cracks, the crevices, and the things that must change for my plans to be sustainable. I don’t necessarily over-plan. I just plan more than is necessary so I have room to move and choose what fits best. Now that I’ve lived my plans for a few weeks, I am tailoring them to fit “just right.” It’s a journey I take repeatedly throughout…

    A Journey of a Thousand Miles…

    “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” – Lao-tzu     So, I’m planning on doing some weekly and monthly reviews here on the blog, to keep myself accountable to all those intentions/goals I set for myself, both for the blog and in my personal life. This is my first one. And it is super link-heavy.   Accomplishments   I’ve accomplished a lot on the blog this past week: My post “What Feels Good?” was selected in the Sinful Sunday round-up. I took part in TMI Tuesday for the 1st time in a long time. My post “Looking Back to Plan Forward” was selected for the Wicked…

    The Erotic Journal Challenge 2022

    As I have noted in several posts the past week or so, CONSISTENCY is one of my focuses for this year. I have a tendency, like many others (raise your hand if you’re in the I-make-big-plans-and-then-fizzle-out-on-keeping-then club), to commit to too many things or create projects that I simply can’t complete or stop caring about over time. I tried to keep that in mind with my blog plans this year. I’ve committed to 3 things: a photography challenge, flash fiction, and an erotic journal. Now, the journal is basically just the personal narrative core of this website, so I’m really just re-commiting to doing a better job of posting regularly.…

    2022 Blog Plans, Projects, and Features

    I’m keeping my goals for 2022 smaller, or at least more organized, than normal. I have a tendency to plan too big and then fail quickly to keep up with my oversized ideas. I’m a busy girl, with work, school, parenting, wife-ing, and I’ve made myself a goal to read at least 2 books per month and keep up with exercise, too. So, I have to keep myself in check here at brigitdelaney.com. I do need a pretty clear schedule, though, to keep myself CONSISTENT, which is a goal both here and in my relationship. So, here’s what I’m committing to: Flash Fiction I’ve been getting back into the fiction…

    My Top 10 Posts of the Year

    Top 10 Most Viewed Posts of 2021 I lost a lot of readers in 2021. I’m not exactly sure why, other than my hiatus  It went right along with a big loss in Twitter followers. But, in general, the “sex-blogging” community has sort of been crumbling for a few years now. Shifting alliances have put a dent in everyone’s readership, and many of us have cut ties, simplified, re-organized, and moved on. Now, many of us are rebuilding and re-networking. The following are in order from most popular to least. I have also listed the associated memes, just so I can see which have brought me the most views/traffic. What…

    Have you checked out my projects?

    Most of what I do on this site is ultimately for my own pleasure. It’s a big bonus if I catch a few readers, and an even bigger bonus if they comment or play along. But, I do keep track of what features get the most attention, and it can affect what I keep and what I don’t. It can also sway what I choose to write about and the topics I lean toward. Currently, if you’re not already playing, my meme projects are noted at the top of the page: The Erotic Journal Challenge (my longest running), Tell Me Something True (new this year, and not getting a ton…
