When I established this website, I gave much thought to what name I was going to use and for a variety of reasons, Dawn Montgomery might not have been my first choice, there are after all, an awful lot of Dawn Montgomerys’ out there! There is Dawn Montgomery who, with her husband Dale, live in Saskatchewan, Canada, the Dawn Montgomery editor living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the Dawn Montgomery model living in Georgia, US (the Dawn with legs to die for), there’s Dawn Montgomery, writer, radio show host, social commentator (that’s me) and then there is Dawn Montgomery, writer of erotic literature. And that’s not me…not because I disapprove of erotic literature per se, he/she just isn’t me…and why do I call him/her he/she? Because apparently, for reasons known only to him/her, when the erotic literature site was created, the name Dawn Montgomery was chosen…in other words, the Dawn Montgomery who writes erotic literature on the internet could actually be Ted Smith or Lucy Bottomlee (and apologies, if apologies are needed, to all the Ted S and Lucy B’s out there). I did think I could have an Erotic Literature category at this site….’legitimise’ Dawn Montgomery writer of Erotic Literature, which could be an answer to the problem, ‘out’ myself! However, when I’m job hunting, my lack of involvement with the DM EL site needs constant affirmation and here’s my problem…my assumption that hosting a site of erotic literature is detrimental to the hiring process; after all, many truly great writers have written truly great erotic literature.
I think the difficulty is doing something inherently socially dubious well, in other words, a great writer might get away with it…a lesser writer just ends up with husky males standing in doorways, their glistening bodies taut with desire whilst the female stands, expectantly, waiting the worst/best that he can come up with…in a manner of speaking. Until I become great, I’ll remain Dawn Montgomery who does not write erotic literature.
