—I was just thinking about you too.
—Oh, you know. Stuff.
—Maybe… what were you thinking?
—Well… yes, maybe, a little shocked. I didn’t expect you to be so… explicit?
—No, not offended, just…
—no, really, I can’t type that. I can’t even THINK that!
—I am, I did.
—I really am doing it. Yes.
—OMFG, your mind…
—yes, just like that
—I want more.
—I just can’t, I know you think I’m a prude, but I can’t…
—yes, I love it…
—I don’t know…
—one more time…
—yes, like that…
—I’m too fucking shy.
—maybe next time?
Liked it? Wanna listen to it? Here’s The Shy Girl’s Guide to Sexting, performed by Elisa Kae:
M. Jane Colette writes tragedy for people who like to laugh, comedy for the melancholy, and erotica for men and women who like their fantasies real. She’s the author of the “is it literature or is it porn” erotic romances Tell Me (2015) and (the) Consequences (of defensive adultery) (coming Spring 2017) and the non-fiction collection of essays on taboo languages and the business of writing, CUNT versus PUSSY (2016). Connect with her at @mjanecolette or TellMe@mjanecolette.com.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:
SCREW CHOCOLATE: 14 Queer Valentines To Help You Survive February 14 is a collaborative project by YYC Queer Writers. We get together intermittently to… write. Also, laud our lovers. Commiserate about our exes. Read each other what we wrote. Explain what we want to write. Try to justify why we aren’t writing it. Go home and write it. Come back. Share it… repeat.
