The Sex Pot Mix
I've been working on my erotica piece today, struggling with the process of structure. Structure is the worst part of any creative process, because you have to figure out where to put everything. I worried for days over my lede, and I'm still not thrilled about it. There are transitions to worry about and getting the quotes right. Then I have to wrap it all up. Oy.
With all this in front of me, I needed to block out distractions. It gets really quiet in the newsroom, but even too much quiet can be bothersome. Funny, that.
I pulled up my iTunes and started flipping around. That's when I found this mix I made last year. It was right after I finished "South Pacific" with The Heights Players and was so tired and worn out that I couldn't handle anything too upbeat. Nevertheless, I was still looking for fun.
In keeping with today's theme of smut, smut, smut, I decided to post The Sex Pot Mix for you. Now you, too, can feel like an exhausted chorus girl looking for the Next Big Thing.
