Erotic Aria is a budding social hub for writers and readers of a variety of literary genres that include erotica, pornography and the paranormal, including fantasy and urban fantasy.
Erotic Aria favours short stories of 3000 words or so, and I now seek to buy one short story from you. The budget for this project is $30 including oDesk fees.
If all goes well, and if it is of interest to you, this project might be the first in a series of projects where I buy from you all manner of your paranormal writings.
You may ask: "What is a short story? How do you define it?"
We answer: "In the eyes of Erotic Aria, a short story is a snapshot of life."
You ask: "Can it be a scene? A vignette?"
We answer" "Yes it can. But it must be self-contained and it may not contain cliffhangers."
What kind of short story do I seek?
This is up to you entirely. It can be upbeat, downbeat, funny, sad, positive, negative, bright and shiny or dark and twisted...it's up to you. My only requirement is that it be indeed a short story (a self-contained snapshot of life) and written in absolutely splendid English.
Your sexual text (if any) should be direct and colorful and very vivid and absolutely to the point and you will always call a spade a spade, but you will never be obscene, degrading, violent nor disgusting.
Your are free to use coarse and vulgar text as much as you please but it's use should serve a purpose.
Your story should be published one page at a time, one page per day. A page can be 100-1200 words and page breaks must occur naturally. A story of 3000 words or so would likely be posted on 3-6 pages depending on the format of your text. If there is a lot of conversation you should aim for long pages.
Pages of a story MUST be tied together with the Multi-page story function. A delayed-publishing feature allows you to post all pages at the same time but delay publishing of each page as needed. You can decorate each page with relevant images and videos, if you like.
Payment for this project is once your entire story has been published. As I am scatterbrained beyond belief I must ask (require) you to send me a reminder through oDesk when the payment is due. This is not rude - quite the contrary, it is very necessary and simply ensures that you get paid on time.
Are there any requirements for new Erotic Aria? Yes there are. Our guidelines: http://eroticaria.com/blog/Guidelines_for_new_Erotic_Aria_writers_1_4535. You must have read them before I can hire you because your oDesk contract will be marked with your Erotic Aria username.
In your pitch please tell me about your story in a sentence or two and submit a sample of the kind of writing the site might expect to see from you.
Thank you for reading.
