Write 40 Short Sex Stories and Make $500 More Per Month?

I did some figuring yesterday.

If I sat down and banged out 40 short sex stories, it would come back to us in the form of another $500 per month. That’s pretty damn substantial – isn’t it?

$500 per month is like a Lexus payment. Here in Thailand it’s a very decent house payment or 10 nights on the town, and I’m talking outFUCKINGrageous nights on the town… not drinking in a yuppy bar in Tampa and introducing myself as Jesus and Moses like my friend Dave and I used to do.

I haven’t looked at it any more closely than what I’ve told you. Oh, well there’s some more information you’re not privy to, the length of the sex story – would be about 5-8 pages. They’d sell for 99 cents each at Amazon. They’d be easy to write, I’ve had some wacky adventures over the 26 years I’ve been having sexual relations. They’d read like sordid tales of an underworld sex addict. I’m barely twisting that for your reaction.

I figure I could write a story a day. It’s easy to write about myself. I can’t remember what the record number of words I’ve done in a day for a book was, but I’m thinking it was in the neighborhood of 20,000 words. I type pretty fast – 50-70wpm, so it all just spills out when I’m on a roll and it’s something I remember well.

Roughly a story a day… lets say 40 stories in 50 days. Then finding the cover image and creating the books at Amazon, would tack on another 10 days. Let’s say about 60 days to do this.

That could be a plan, if I had any interest in doing it.

Now, if you’re starting from zero and want to really ramp your stuff up – do this for a year. If you were able to stick with it and write 240 short stories in a year, you’d be pulling in about $3,000 per month just from your one year of effort. Actually, I was just figuring it out based on my success with a couple of stories. If you write 240 – you’ll get readers that read 10 or more of your shorts, and you’ll likely make much more than $3,000 per month. I also didn’t figure in the extra sales you’d make by compiling 20 stories at a time around a theme and selling them as new books with higher price-tags.

I think you’d be making more like $5,000 per month on this schedule.

To me it sounds real doable. Hell, I’ve got 200+ blog posts here, 300+ at my personal development site, 750+ at one of my Thailand blogs, I’ve got another 35 websites with minimum 10 pages each, and some of them well over 100 pages.  I’ve got 20 books at Amazon already.

Forty short stories in 2 months doesn’t sound like a big effort. Two hundred forty stories in a year doesn’t scare me either. Thing is, I don’t need $5,000. I need $15,000 per month in the next year. I’m not chasing small money any more, I made that commitment to myself – to my family. I’m done chasing under five $K per month. We’ve got that. We’re doing fine. I need to re-focus and go for the bigger goals.

So, I have some projects going that could maybe get me there in a year. They will also take a lot of writing, and it is even less sure than writing 240 Amazon books. However, the topside is WAY over $5,000 per month. The lowside is probably $1,000 per month, but I can’t see that happening – we’ve lined up too many positives going for us. I think it’s just a matter of fulfilling our plan (me+partner) and getting there.

Anyway… so, if you are sitting around wondering how in the world you’re going to get $5,000 per month – there you are.

I’m not a good writer, you’re probably better. However, when I sit down and start banging shit out – there are few that can keep up with me, and fewer still that can do it as long as me. Those that work and bang it out – get the goose and the gander, W-everTF that means.

Writing to make a living is NOT difficult. But then neither is anything else. Just sit and do it. I like to say, “write your ass numb.”

It works.

  1. I admire the way you are always pushing for success. It is sure to come your way if you remain determined. I sometimes wish I’d a bit more spunk. I make a reasonable living as a writer, but that’s probably all I’ll ever manage. I don’t take enough chances and prefer to play it safe.

      Hi Paul,

      I prefer to take chances rather than play it safe – I feel more alive as I do so. Many things don’t work out, but some do. Either way, it’s always an experience. If I was by myself without a family, like I’ve been most of my life – I’d take it easy and be happy with what I have. Because I have a family I feel pushed to leave them with something good before I’m gone. Basically the first 35 years of my life were selfish… and the last, though I can’t say “won’t be” – they’ll be less so.

      When is your first fight? You will videotape it – yes?

  2. I’m making progress with my own selfishness, but it is still very much a work in progress. My son has helped with this greatly, but selfishness can take on many guises.

    It will probably be a few months before I fight. I had planned to get in the ring this month but injuries got in the way. I do hope to record the fight.

    Good luck with your goals and thank you for posting. I think you are right about self publishing stories as ebooks.

    A writers group focused on producing short erotic stories for publication could put new work up frequently under one pen name and build a large catalogue more quickly than any single author could, building a huge customer base to support sales of new work. Even splitting profits, each member would make more money in a shorter time than working alone.

    If 4 authors wrote just 2 stories per month each, that would be 8 short stories to sell individually and 2 bundles of four each month–10 titles per month, 120 per year, all under just one pen name. If they helped critique and edit each other’s work, quality would be raised and each writer would improve skills.

    There, that’s a plan for you.

    • MikeFook says:

      Thanks Bill. I don’t know that many people would be keen on joining efforts with other writers. I guess if you can’t write yourself, you’d want to join a group that can so you can sell more than you would by yourself. If you’re any good at all, you’d do it yourself and work on making a living.

      I’d not write with anyone else unless Thomas Harris begged me to join him.

    I want to know once I get short stories written hen how do I get them out there or on amazon? I love writing short love stories, sex plots, or straight fantasies that people would never even think of doing. Also how do you make covers like you said?

    • MikeFook says:

      Hi Shannon,

      Just go to http://kdp.amazon.com and upload your books and jump through the hoops.

      I make covers using Paint Shop Pro v 7 I think it is. It’s old, but I know how it works, so I can get covers done in an hour or so. I strongly recommend you hire someone to make you a cover for around $100.

      Best of luck to you…
