Happy Birthday Geek Porn Girl!

I’m having an online party and I hope you’ll come!

Please leave me a virtual birthday present by dropping a comment on this site. (Any story or post will be fine, but please don’t spam me. I’ll delete those.) Everyone who posts this week, before 3 p.m. PST Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2008 will be entered into a drawing for a free GPG t-shirt featuring the new tagline “If you want appropriate, go somewhere else.” (I’ll contact the winner/s about size and color choices after the drawing.)

One year ago, I started GPG, hoping to bring a little bit of lesbian fiction into the blogosphere. You can find lots of erotica on the web, but very little that reflects lesbian women who are smart and quirky, with a sense of humor.

I’ve heard from women who read GPG in biology, computer, and physics labs, as well as in airports, at home, and when they should be working. In the last year, I’ve had very few comments or emails from men, and that delights me. I have nothing against men, but I didn’t want to write the kind of girl-on-girl interactions that typically appeal to them. I wanted to write the sort they don’t usually understand, with all of the true lesbian nuances

This site has allowed me to exercise my writing skills (although I studied writing in college, most of my classes focused on writing as a journalist). I’ve tried writing physical comedy and psychological comedy. I’ve written two multi-installment series, and stories that were limited to 100 words. I’ve been able to try on different personalities and voices, and write from different points of view. Some of the stories have been a turn-on and others have just been silly.

You guys have challenged me to stay on task to the tune of nearly 40,000 words in the last year. I often say that I write the way other people knit. I write to relax and unwind. I write in lieu of watching television. I write other, unrelated blogs. However, I have to admit that GPG’s 40,000 words would make one heck of a long scarf.

There have been 34 stories posted to date, and now you can find them all under the Anthology tab at the top of the page or in the “Read More Stories” button at the right.

Keep checking back. I’m cooking up some new projects for the site… and you’ll be the first to know!

  14. It was a gift to merely be introduced to your writing… and now I may even get a free Tee?!?! O Happy Day! I always look forward to reading new additions (editions? :)) and have yet to tire of the ones I’ve already read. I still laugh out of context in my day to day just thinking about how many surrealists it takes to change a light bulb. It’s sweet genius.

  15. I wish I could claim that joke as my own, but versions of it have made the rounds for years. Still, I appreciate the props, Dali… I mean, darling.
