Housekeeping

As this blog has been long neglected, I am doing some updating. There have been a lot more stories published and one of the platforms I used to publish on went bankrupt. So, I’ll be updating pages and adding more books over the next few weeks.

Thanks for bearing with me.

Compliments

One of the things that I think a woman should do is learn how to take a compliment.

So often, in an attempt to not be selfish or self-absorbed, we deny nice things said to and about us. Which, honestly, is rude. To tell someone who said something nice about you that they’re wrong because you don’t feel you’re worthy of having nice things said about you dismisses their agency in favor of your own hangups.

That said, I have come to realize that there are some compliments that I enjoy more than others, and I didn’t really understand why until I articulated it to a friend.

There are aspects of myself, my body and my personality, over which I have very little control. My breasts, which are fantastic, are mostly a result of genetics and a really good bra. The most control I have over those are the bras I choose. So when someone says they love my tits, it’s nice but it doesn’t mean much. The same goes for most of the rest of my body. I can work to change or maintain my shape to an extent but a large part of that is also down to genetics.

The things I do have control over, though? My attitude, my hustle, how I treat other people? Complimenting those make me feel like someone actually took the time to notice me. These are things that are uniquely me and some of the things I work hardest on.

So, a sincerely proffered compliment will always get a smile and a thank you. But a positive comment about how much someone appreciates my attitude and they notice how hard I work? That goes a long way to making me feel loved and appreciated.

Random Thoughts on Power

One of the most divisive things I’ve ever said online was that a woman is responsible for her own orgasm. No matter who she’s having sex with, it’s up to her to get off.

The responses I got to that comment were enlightening.

It seems that a lot of women have given the responsibility for their pleasure to the men they’re having sex with. (The responses were mostly from heterosexual women. Most of the lesbians on the board agreed with me.)

Now, it’s possible to find a partner who has studied the fine art of the female orgasm and who is willing to put in the time to learn what the smallest difference in breath means. They’re rare, however, and the most common place for them are in the pages of a romance novel.

What that means is that, if you want to have an orgasm from your partner, it’s going to require you to talk to them, to communicate about what’s working and what’s not.

Honestly, some of the best forms of this I’ve seen has been with BDSM couples who having very frank conversations about what is allowed and what works for both of them before they get naked. It’d be nice if more vanilla relationships would have that kind of discussion before they finished dinner and made their way to the bedroom for dessert.

Because, quite frankly, giving up responsibility for your own orgasm creates a very unhealthy unbalance in a relationship. You’re either giving him control over your pleasure or your using your lack of pleasure to create guilt and a hold over him. Neither dynamic leads to a happy long-term relationship or a very satisfactory short-term one.

Owning who you are, understanding how your body works, and being willing to pursue and communicate your needs is one of the most sexually powerful things a woman can do. And it all starts with being responsible for your own orgasms.

Dusting off the Blogwebs

And it’s been even longer than the last time when I said it has been a long time and mostly that’s because I haven’t been writing.

At all.

And that makes me sad.

But, I’ve been writing again and I wanted to let people know that I’m alive. And there will be hot, sweaty, smutty sex very soon.

Pardon the Absence

Well, it’s been a while since I posted and I do apologize for that. Mostly, I’ve been too busy which isn’t much of an excuse but there it is. Some of what I’ve been busy in is new stories.

Yay! New stories!

The latest one is a story I’ve been working on with a friend and it’s his debut. I think it’s fabulous and all the beta readers have agreed. I’m actually giving out ARC’s for it and it will be live on Tuesday.

So, if you’d like to get a copy, drop me a line at c.v.walter.author at gmail.com and I’ll let you know how to get one.

It’s been a long time since…

I updated here. Sheesh. That’s not to say I haven’t been busy! I’ve had a lot of stories released in the last few months and I will be updating the blog with all the info on them, along with some fun things that are coming up.

I’ve got Nanowrimo coming up soon and I’m planning on using the blog to keep myself honest and up to date. I might also share some scenes that I find particularly interesting. This year, I’m writing a paranormal romance that will be the sequel to the one I should be finishing up in the next week or so.

If you’re on the mailing list, I’ll also be sending out a survey about what books you’ve read and loved and I’ll be giving away books a couple of stories while I’m at it.

So, stick around for updates and giveaways and watch your email!
