Inspiration For a New Story

Today I worked on a new short story for the upcoming “Hot July Days…M/M Style” event at the M/M Romance group on Goodreads.

For this event, members of the group wrote letters requesting a story centered around one of their favorite photos. Authors or writers in the group then volunteered to write a free short story based on the letter and picture of their choice.

Here’s the picture I selected (not sure of the original source). I fell in love with it right off.

I got a good start on the story today and have outlined the rest of it. It has a lovely romantic ending, and you all know how much I love when a couple of guys take a moment to get a little sweet with each other. Especially a couple of bears on the beach.

After the story is posted at the Goodreads group, I can add it to my website. I’ll let you all know when it’s available.

Hope you have a fabulous week!

  1. Oh I love the one you picked! It is so great!!! It is one I would have picked. lol SJ roped me into doing it so I roped Jaime Samms into it as well.

    I can’t wait until all the stories are done. :)

    • Thanks, Jambrea! Love the one you selected too. That’s one of my all time fave pictures. So glad SJ roped you into it. Good luck with your story (although I bet you already have it done).

  2. Thank. I love my picture too. I’m happy she roped me into it too, but I like to give her a hard time. lol

    Nope, it isn’t done yet, but only because I am in a hurry to finish a story that is on deadline. lol As soon as I wrap this one up I’ll be on mine full time and have it done. I DO have it started though.

    Poor SJ needs lessons on a short story. She just keeps going and going and going. ROFL!

    • @Jambrea: Good luck finishing your other story for the deadline! That’s funny about SJ. She does like long stories. Uh, sort of like me, so I guess I better be quiet now.

  3. It is the perfect manlove cover. I wouldn’t hesitate chosing that book by its cover.

    Hairy men are so sexy.

    Mega hairy muscle hugs wishing you a fantastic Gay Pride Month and much continued success.

    • Thanks so much for the kind words, BT. Glad you like the pic too. I was definitely inspired. I’ve got the story written. Now I just need to read through it a few times and polish it up. Hope you have a fantastic Pride month too!
