R YOU READY?


The alphabet is a journey of 26 letters...
Each letter begins a new story. 
Well you probably guessed it…
R is for more Research on genres…
But also…

Another invite.
While at lunch at Fridays…
The MVRWA president asked me.
“Our annual Retreat is coming up,
Would you like to go?”
“Where is it?” I asked.
“In a cabin up in Michigan.”
Ah ha! Their secret rendezvous…
To do “whatever” it is they do.
Before my brain could consider it...

My mouth accepted the invite...
"Sure. Love to."

Weeks later…
With a small overnight bag…
And my stash of Trader Joe coffee and my French press…
I went to the cabin up in Michigan.
I also brought an open mind with me.
So there I was, at the door. I knocked...
A woman with a glass of something opened it…
And before I could even say, hi…
Someone inside yelped,
“Stiffcock!”

And then the chanting began...
"Stiffcock. Stiffcock. Stiffcock". 
Stiffcock? 
What? Were? They into?
My eyes must have bugged out...
Because the woman at the door laughed...
"Oh, don't mind them, we do this every year.
I knew it! The erotica writer...
Probably keeps a stash of dildos in her purse.
"Come on in." said the woman at the door...
This is a lot of fun." 
Oh, what to do? What to do?
Dash back to my car and escape?
But then I'd be a chicken shit wuss baby, wouldn't I?
I mean, after all, I had brought an open mind with me..
And if I fled, I could never show my face again...
And I had just joined the group!
I really, really wanted to be a part of a writer group!
So...
I took a deep breath...
Mustered some chutzpah...
Walked in and…
Well, you’ll just have to see “S’” story tomorrow.

Always, Em-Musing

Found your R entry? I'm a little curious about that stiff yearly tradition they have going on there.

A retreat in a remote cabin in Michigan sounds wonderful, but what you encountered there sounds pretty weird. I'm guessing it's something just plain silly though.

You definitely don't wanna be a chicken shit wuss baby.

That's as bad as an asshat.

I would've gone in too. Bet it was more fun than a trip to BGW (Bad Girls Weekend). It'd be like BGW with writers! pure awesome.
