Write me 4000 words of an fictional erotica story. I can provide you a general plot to use, or you can make one up yourself. I will provide some various plot elements I would like to be placed within the story, but as said, the guidelines are fairly loose and you are more than welcome to take most of the creative direction into your own hands. In order to perform well, you should be well-acquainted with the English language, and also understand how to write QUICKLY. I am not going to care much about spelling errors and grammar - I will go through and proofread your writing. I am more into a writer who can churn out work consistently and quickly. An example task would be: Please write me a 4000 word story, using ____ and ____ as themes.. You should write about a man and a woman, around 30 years of age. I am ideally looking for ghostwriters who would like long-term work. Once we've established a connection, I'd like to keep working with you. This can result in an increased pay...
