Newsflash: Incest readers have no sense of humour

I read two or three incest stories – just to see what all of the fuss was about. I couldn’t believe how badly written they were. And yet how highly they scored.

So I wrote (well, dashed off) a bit of a satire. Absolute rubbish. But well-crafted rubbish. And, in two days, something like 30k readers seem to have taken it seriously.

I think I need a cup of tea and lie down in a darkened room.

Some of us try to craftily pen incestuous tales with non-stereotypical elements. But I can look at new submissions in almost any category and be immediately repulsed by the flood of illiterate shit sweeping past my eyes. Remember Sturgeon's Law: 95% of everything is crap. (As distinct from Sturgeon's Creed: In the winter I'm a Buddhist, in the summer I'm a nudist.)

LOL. A lot of it's awfully bad, but then you get the odd moving tale of incest unleashed on an unwitting audience. There's gems in there, and not my own. It just takes a long time to find them, but the numbers of views .... incredible. Don't see the fascination, myself, but then I guess we all have our own little kinks.

I can't defend the quality of the stories in I/T. They're even talking to each other about which horrible, clichéd story line they're using now.

But to be even-handed, now you should write a satire of Romance and see what kind of reception you get.

Edit: i take that back. To be fair, maybe I should write a romance satire and we can compare the results. (Not likely to happen. I don't have the time.)

Again, it comes down to that ever-present choice: Do you prostitute yourself and deliver the kind of rubbish Jane and Joe Public lurve or do you pursue your art? Writer, painter, sculptor - you name it. The choice is still the same.

Well, this site doesn't PAY you anything for you to prostitute yourself. So I say just pursue your art.
I do it for myself, for my own enjoyment and to see my own fetishes and fantasies brought to life. No one will do it better than myself! Sharing it here is just a small bonus, not the goal. If you start to bend to public opinion and try to produce something that people will like but you yourself don't - well, than what's the point?

The only exception to bend to public tastes somewhat is if you write to sell. In that case you can make some concessions. While you are writing for other purposes, be it training or shameless self-gratification - you should write what you want and let those who dislike it fuck themselves =)

Far easier to pursue your art when it's basically rubbish anyway! If only mine was the right kind of rubbish for mass appeal.

thing is, you can't write for money right away, especially not erotica. If your last name is Rowling or Hamilton, you can get away with awful writing skills but the story that people like.
In erotic literature? I don't think you can.

Loved it to bits. Last thing in the world I would have read but for this thread. Thank you for such delightful lightheartedness. It felt like William growing up. The comments at the end were a hoot.

Then why is there so much writing available here that's all about the scene, not the writing and there are so many folks writing it? I think the site itself refutes your statement. I also think that you seem to be denying what most of the story file here constitutes.

Similarly, if you think you can't sell poorly written erotica, you haven't delved into what is on sale at Amazon very deeply, I must say.

Exactly, the scene.
You need to be able to write good to write the scene down.

Mainstream readers can excuse you bad writing skills if your plot is good enough or if it fills the niche. You can be unable to express yourself in a good way, but you can still write a bestseller.

In erotic it's all about expression. If you compare literature to painting, then in mainstream there are people who can appreciate the message of the picture, the thought the author put behind it - even if it's drawn awkwardly or poorly.
But erotic readers need an eye candy to enjoy

With well over 900 stories published here you must be kicking yourself. Hard.

Seconded!

It's such a scatterbrained delight it deserves to be 5-bombed. (It's one of those things that happens to Literotica stories.)

I won't spoil it for everyone else by posting quotes of the best lines, they really are priceless!

I had already read it, mainly because when I am looking through the list, I will read stuff from people in here. I saw it for what it was.

When it comes to incest stories I have decided that crap like this would get at minimum 3.5 stars.

I would never last in a story long enough to get to that point if that's the way it's written. I have to finish a story to vote on it, so that story would never get a vote from me. If I actually slogged through it, then 3 would probably be the best it could get from me.

My first I/T post was husband/sister-in-law. I floated the story idea on the feedback forum and was warned that it might not go well. The first comment was "That's not incest" and the second was "It's taboo, you idiot."

The story's rating isn't great because of the "not incest" thing, but also because it's less than a Lit page long -- somewhere around 2000 words, if I remember right.

Despite that, it's probably my most favorited story.

I worked really hard to put in bad grammar and spelling into that. Short as it was, it was hard.

I had one that I wrote years ago that ended up a pretty high score, I read it now and think its real garbage. It was less than a Lit page.

I reckon they just cut and pasted a session in LitChat for this quoted story, and added 'she said' later on
