Did you get it right? Check out these stories from Brayon!
my mind went wandering today...
Having a tall son means that the windows of your SUV get cleaned well while he pumps gas
Having mostly grown kids means you can say "This house needs cleaned up" & no one asks "What do you want us to do?" Daughter started assigning jobs & they got busy (ok there was some sighing & eye rolling).
Having mostly grown kids who can think for themselves (mostly, lol!) means they know to take the big trash can to the curb when you say "i need s

Okay, so that was on the board at my dad's senior residence today. Maybe it should have stayed there

Dad is getting settled into the new assisted living facility. We've been told he could be confused for a month or so still.
Went up yesterday to help my brother sort through the remaining things in dad's old apartment in the independent living center - piles for me, piles for him, piles to move, piles to donate. Extremely depressing. Like dividing up someones things after they've died - thought I guess there is a bit less emotion to doing it now. Brother has finally admitted that dad is 98

When you left to go out this morning the last thing you expected to do was fall over a stunning young man. As you apologize profusely you hear him mention a "missed shot" and a "missing arrow." When he finally straightens up and looks you in the eyes you feel drawn to him. When he asks you out, what happens?

Found the following on Reddit's "Unpopular Opinion" Sub.
I've seen this happened to friends, I've felt this happened to myself.
I can say with 100% accuracy that the part about less social services for men vrs. women is 100% true. As someone on Disability, and still fighting for it, there is virtually nothing I qualify for. After four years I'm still on a waiting list for an apartment through a transient program. I've been passed over several times now for women and single parent
Welcome back. One of the advantages of asking several authors the same question is the opportunity to discern something about their writing. Their responses, shared in this blog verbatim, can give us glimpses into their style. This month’s replies may also tell us if their work is to be read one handed.
A while back, a reader suggested one of my stories did not belong on Gay Authors. The complaint was I barely included sex scenes. Before I could reply, several others jumped in and made it

Well happy February all! I'm in another great mood tonight So please just humour me for a bit.
See, my hockey team got their butts handed to them on the scoreboard tonight As most of you know, I live in Calgary and our arch rivals are in the other major city in Alberta, Edmonton. So back in the 80's and 90's, the two teams had games that were legendary for everything good, and some bad, in hockey. After 20 years, both teams are both relevant again to each others and the game tonight was a
Warning: This is me whining, but trying to get my thoughts in order by writing them out. I left work early today not knowing if I was going to start screaming or crying; or just start doing both.
This week has not been a good one. The weather keeps shifting back and forth by large jumps so the joints can't get back in balance before the next front hits. This is keeping my pain level above normal, and that is increasing my depression, and that is increasing my level of irritation.
We made it to the end of January. You know that means Valentine's Day is right around the corner. These prompts will either help you create something romantic or perhaps murderous. It all depends on how you take them. So, another Friday collection of prompts for you.

I think the issue I really have with hands-free orgasms stems from all the romance novels I read when I was a teen. It was really common for the heroine to be unable to experience a non-clitoral orgasm (or to experience an orgasm period) until Mr. Right makes love to her, ya know, cause how else are you gonna know he's Mr. Right? The case could be made that this promotes an unrealistic expectation about sex within a romantic relationship. I started seeing parallels with hands-free orgasms in ga
Like so much else I've written before, this has morphed into something different. The premise is something I still like, but the plot I envision is very different. I've been toying with this off and on for years now, and when I thought I had it right, I sent it to a beta reader who basically said, um no. You need to rework this with someone else as the main love interest. SO it's back to the to be written folder and we'll see where it goes.
Thanks for the comment and for reading.
I mean, hands-free orgasm is a real thing, but it has less to do with your lover's skill than with, well, physiology. Some can, some can't.
Either way, I do think this version was an improvement. You're doing a great job reworking this.
