Having just celebrated my one year on Twitter followed by the first anniversary of this website another milestone is fast approaching – The first anniversary of when I started writing Fell8.
Fell8 was my first outright piece of fiction I wrote.
If truth be told I should have finished it by now. If I had my way I’d have finished about four stories by now but there we go.
Fell8 is a quite a special story to me. Not only is it a fun tale to write but it reminds me of some hilarious threads I was involved in during my early days on Twitter.
The idea for this story spawned from two discussions with the awesome Wednesday Noir, the lovely Daniele Light and the super Clara Zaynn.
The first was how’d we all fair in an old school horror movie and the second related to surviving a zombie apocalypse.
My answer to both was the same – I’d be having sex. At some point during the conversation and it may have been me who said it, I was sucking off zombies to survive the apocalypse.
And so the idea of Fell8 was born. Yet it wasn’t to be erotica. Indeed Fell8 (which in case you didn’t know is a play on the word fellate) was to signal my move away from erotica that I had concentrated on with the Of Selina series.
It was not necessarily a conscious decision but having decided that my zombies could only be killed by a blowjob it didn’t seem to work to have an explicit details.
Whilst the story is littered with references to penis I felt it worked simply as a bizarre way to kill someone.
Indeed, whilst there is humour in Fell8 a lot of that comes from the situation of how they have to kill the zombies.
Replace this unique method with the more traditional sword or gun and it’s just a straightforward zombie apocalypse story. But by making the main characters all female and having the only way to kill the advancing horde is by performing a sex act, you’d be surprised how many storylines open up.
I also wanted it to be very character driven and the eight main characters are all loosely based/inspired by some of my closest chums on Twitter.
The structure of each chapter intentionally plays out as if it were an episode of a TV series.
It was fun plotting each ‘episode’ especially as more than once I would say to myself ‘what creative way can I have them give a blowjob?!’
Violent. Ludicrous and completely wrong, it has been the funnest thing to write.
Therefore I could not simply leave it incomplete. Of all my stories I have started but failed to finish Fell8 would hurt the most.
Fell8 also marked my first foray into Wattpad, which equally hasn’t gone to plan.
Indeed you would only find the opening of Fell8 on this website and so I’ve got an idea.
For the benefit of all those nervous about hopping over to Wattpad I’m going to bring the story so far over to here.
Then maybe we will see about completing the damn thing.
