Urban Word Wednesday: Masturbexting

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary (…and sometimes hubby). You are gonna love these!

Today’s urban word is featured on the urban dictionary’s site and was submitted by…yes…you guessed it: HUBBY!!! I am soooo…proud!

Masturbexting: One sided sexting or sexting alone. If you send a sext and get a single word reply like ‘No’, ‘Nope’, ‘Yup’ or no simply no reply at all. Or you might be masturbexting if you are playing both roles in the sext conversation (i.e.: replying to sexting messages to yourself, after the original went unanswered.)

Hubby’s new urban word creation (he’s soooo creative that guy….wowzers!) was born from Jenny Hansen’s post on sexting! Masturbexting is the deliciously naughty second-cousin once removed to sexting.

Examples Of Use:

Unfortunately for hubby, he’s a Jedi Knight Masturbexter (sorry hubby, don’t mean to lay all your shit bare here on ‘la blog’ but…I gotta call a spade a spade). But take note, it’s not his fault. It’s due to the fact that I….am a sexting moron. There….I said it…I owned my shit! What can I say…it just doesn’t do it for me. Our sexting always turns into hubby’s masturbexting. Case in point:

Hubby Sext: I am so hot for you right now. Picture it. I am slipping off your shirt.

My reply: K

Hubby Sext: I am sliding my hand up your leg, slowly caressing your thigh.

My reply: Yip

Hubby Sext:Check out the attached special picture…huh…huh??? Like that???

My reply: Is that your sock? Is it a clean sock or a dirty-warn-all-day sock? Cause that’ll change things…ewwww…

Hubby: Seriously?!?!?!

My reply: I’m sorry…this is just weird….

Seeeee….sexting moron of a wife. Oh well, there are worse things!

Do you masturbext? Share the wealth…wait…on second thought, don’t. LOL!


ROW80 – Round 4 – Check-in #11

It’s time to update you on my ROW80 progress. You can find a list of my goals here.

Work In Progress Goals:

  • 2 hours on WIP (well on track for my goal of 5 hours/week)
    • 30-minute writing sprint with Kerry Meacham and Lauren Garafalo (thanks to you both!)
    • 30 minutes working on paranormal story idea
    • 1 hour mind map/brainstorming session on women fiction ideas
  • Facebook message check-in/chat with my ROW80 Sista – Nancy J. Nicholson.
  • I reported on my ROW80 goals one on time.

This week was fantastic for me.

Well, y’all might not think so since my word count is dismal (non-existence – lord). I haven’t started writing yet although for me, that’s ok since my main ROW80 goal is to complete ½ of a plot outline. Seems a smidge tame compared to most but alas, I am realistic if nothing else.

So it all started when I asked Kerry what a writing sprint was and voila, within a few hours I was in the middle of doing my first sprint. We decided 30 minutes was good since I am a newbie. Lauren joined in on the fun and off we went. Since I am not at the “prose” writing part, I decided to apply James Scott Bell’s LOCK method to my paranormal story idea one more time to dig deeper. I just let go and completely “free wrote” about the idea. Just flushing out stuff, possible scenes, character and plot issues, conflict ideas, possibilities etc. After 1060 words, again I came to the same conclusion, although I think it’s a FAB story idea, it’s….well…not what I want to write!

For one, it’s too complicated (especially for my first novel) and it’s not the genre I feel most drawn to write (even though I love to read paranormal, I don’t think I want to write it…at least not yet). I want to tap into my natural voice (more in line with my blog voice which is easy and fun…more me!) and write women’s fiction. With a recommendation from Jenny Hansen, I started reading Jill Conner Browne’s Sweet Potato Queens and I LOVE it (thank you Jenny)! It’s more towards the style I want to write. Now to craft an idea around that…hmmmm…more brainstorming/thinking required! I’ll spend some time this weekend working on that.

It’s the oddest feeling in the world. I feel ready to write a novel. I feel like I have the support system and am building a community (y’all, a couple great friends, hubby and Mom) and am gaining the knowledge (reading craft books and blog posts etc) but….for some reason I feel like “the” idea is remaining elusive. Like…I should keep learning and edging my way forward but it’s not quite time yet?!?! I don’t know – does that sound normal? It’s not fear. I am not afraid to commit. It’s like I sense something coming but it’s still just out of my reach. I can’t put my thumb on it. Anyway, I’ll keep working on it and see….

Hope everyone is having a great NaNo thus far!
