DaniAdventures Progress Report

You are doing a great job! Keep creating; I believe in you!
Luridity: Where love is love and life is lived. Contains NSFW content.

Galactic Culture

Galactic standards rose from the most dystopian Zone in Luridity to cling to planetary societies in passing. Ways of life shared with friends, enemies and strangers, just like an overplayed song that chafes one's memory and yet...will never let you down.

794 words

Simple Cybernetics

From medical necessities to elective enhancements, cybernetics are a common occurrence in the Centralvest Zone of Luridity, and becoming more popular as the Zone's technological influence makes its way across the stars.

3407 words

Lootbox Eve

Lootbox Eve is a free-for-all of epic proportions in the Centralvest Zone of Luridity. But that's what happens when you put a bunch of wrapped gifts in an open market, tell people they're free and that everyone should ready, set...GO GET THOSE PRESENTS!

2013 words

The Marvelous Toy

A very special toy with very special customization capabilities. It's fully functional, and *potentially* anatomically correct. NSFW, sexual content.

2605 words


VaultRings are biologically encoded, titanium-plated rings which can be worn on any finger. Light, simple, stylish, and secured from any would-be thief! (Luridity contains NSFW content; this particular article contains a couple of lewd puns.)

Hey y'all! I'm Dani, a creativity and goal coach and editor, as well as an author of paranormal, sci-fi, and steampunk--usually with romance flavors (under my Cera Daniels penname).   I have 3 novels and 2 short stories published on Amazon and Gumroad, and I'm working on moooaaar! *insert kermit-keyboard-flail* I've done NaNoWriMo since 2006 (as a Municipal Liaison for 7 years). I was a part-time freelance editor, a technical writer and Q&A manager for software for over 15 years...but due to health issues now I work from home helping writers get past overwhelm to get books written, teaching writing workshops, providing one-on-one coaching for creativity, managing project plans, editing, and formatting ebooks.   My favorite writing process is world-building, followed only by getting to know a new character's voice. Both involve me talking to myself, my husbando waking up with sticky notes on his forehead (hey, it was once! no need to keep me banned from writing in bed!), and my kidlet staring at me like my brain's exploded out of my head and bounced around the room. I just tell her creativity is messy. :D   I caffeine and give virtual hugs.
