A few months ago I was wandering around the web and stumbled across a call for submissions for a short story anthology about science and sexuality.  My first thought was “I know about science!”

Take a moment to consider how much of a geek I must truly be.

So, anyway, I decided to try writing a short story just to see if I could do it and because while reading the synopsis of the anthology an idea popped into my head for a story.  I’ve dabbed with it for the last few months.  The science part was going well.  I was happy with it.  I was never really happy with the sex part.  I thought it was sort of boring.  But the deadline came so I sent it off.  I figured it was a good exercise.

I found out this morning that it is going to be published in the book!  I submitted it under a fake name.  It is bad enough when my clients say I saw you on Jeopardy! (I was a rerun this weekend I found out) but I really don’t want to hear if they are reading my naughty story.  I haven’t told the SO yet.  We’ve had plumbers here all morning who took a simple repair and managed find all kinds of other problems.  I haven’t quite found the right moment to sit him down and say, “So, honey, I’ve gone into porn.”

I guess this means that I won’t be running for president anytime soon.  Even with a fake name these things always come out…

  1. ROFL!!! Will you at least tell us the name of the book when it comes out, so we can play “guess which story was written by YOU!”????? *grin*
