Lack of inspiration...mixed with hope

I cannot claim to have found this picture on my own. Hermione of Hermione's Heart has a wonderfully entertaining blog which often have funny and thought provoking pictures.  I laughed so hard I had to share it.

She also finds and gives samples of some very interesting stories and is quite an author onto herself. She has a number of real life stories which inspire and draw you into her mind.

Speaking of inspiration...I have been relatively uninspired lately. I think part of it is a definite lack of any spanking play. We (or rather I) made that decision early on in my pregnancy and I am glad we have stuck to it. There have been a number of "complications" that have cropped up over the past little while which have led to many doctor trips (baby is fine, thankfully!) and, as I bruise ridiculously easily, not having to worry about any possible conversation about abuse, even with my very open-minded doctor, has been one less stress.

This withdrawal is a strange feeling for me, one I am not very familiar with. I spent the majority of my relationship not getting any type of spanking what so ever. I lived vicariously on many other peoples' experiences and stories on forums. Blogs never really crossed my mind but 10 years ago I don't know how many there were. Even before my current condition, I certainly wouldn't say I got a "good" spanking but our experiences and courage was rapidly growing and I miss that terribly. I think my partner is missing it a bit too, because he occasionally taps my bottom and almost looks longingly at me. *sigh* My vanilla partner was just starting to show his colours.

On a writing note, I keep reading the two novels I'm currently writing over and over, having very little idea on how to move the story forward or connect the bits that I have together. Or I know exactly what I want to happen but there are no words that fit properly on the page. The words I've picked seem childish, or don't fit with the rest of the writing style I've used. I've added words, a paragraph here or there, but since I tend to write short novels rather than novellas, to me they are not done yet although I am sure they could be a story unto themselves.

It's exceedingly frustrating!

On a positive note, since I am forced to "relax" more (and I use this term sarcastically) my academic and personal interest hobbies are being learned at a much quicker rate than normal. Hmm...perhaps my heroines need a similar projects?

My frustrations have been vented and I feel surprisingly good about it. Thanks for listening!

Now it's your turn!

What do you do when you are forced into a spanking fast and are facing withdrawal? Anything you do to battle writers block?

Keep safe!

How did I get into spanking?

Renee Rose at http://www.reneeroseromance.com asked the question and I thought it's such a simple question to answer it can be my post for the week!

Simple indeed...as if life is ever simple.

I think it has always been part of my being. I remember watching "old" cartoons and religiously waiting for the rerun with that little spanking mention or, if the Gods were on my side, an actual smack or two. I never really desired to be spanked, it was just absolutely fascinating.

The strange thing was, I never connected it to sexual desire. Not until much much later and it took the internet to really start that train of thought. Oddly enough it was during a research project in my post-secondary years which took me to the site Spanking Classics on a completely unrelated topic to spanking. Then, in the course of a few hours, an entirely new world opened up to me. One that told me I was not alone and that what I was feeling was accepted by some.

Many great writers have added their works to that site and I would recommend you take a look and register. It is a quite site right now, as always happens with the ebbs and flow of how the spanking culture has changed. Hopefully that will change in the future. It is also a great site to gather information on and ask questions.

That is how I got my introduction into the spanking world and it has been growing ever since, but that's another post.

So the question is, how did you get started? Was it a film? A website? Just a feeling you had? Would you recommend a site for those just starting their journey?

Keep well and stay safe!

Interview by Renee Rose

I was quite honoured to be interviewed by Renee Rose for her blog a little while ago. On top of being quite an accomplished writer herself, she often interviews other authors on her blog which can be quite illuminating. I often enjoy reading about the different thought processes of writers and how different they often are.

The interview can be found on her blog and I strongly suggest look over the many short stories she has on her blog. They are well worth a read.

Take care everyone and stay safe!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Now, in the winter wonderland which is my home, is the perfect time of year to reflect, create resolutions, rekindle friendships, and try and build a healthier (mentally and physically) you.

Not everyone takes this view though, my partner being a perfect example. Every year I ask him what his new years resolution is and most of the time I get the smart-alick answer of "not to make any new years resolutions!"

This year I got a different answer. "Why do I have to pick something for January 1st? What about the rest year? If I want to change something, I just do it!"

I said that wasn't the point. It could be used as a time to reflect on those changes.

He grumbled an answer and I dropped the conversation.

I get his point because he is one of those people that once he has a new thought he acts on it. To me though, it is a time to give myself permission to admit it didn't work and to try either a new way or something completely different.

It also gives me time to reflect on how the last year has been in my life. Starting with the negatives because it's always best to end with positives!

Negatives:
1. Health issues of relatives.
2. Failed relationships of people very close to me
3. Work frustrations
4. Not getting the spankings I want to get

Positives:
1. I'm pregnant! (Still shocks me sometimes)
2. I'm getting spanked more than last year (Yay!)
3. I'm writing again
4. I was published for the first time
5. I'm pregnant! (It has to be said again!)

So where do I stand now?

There are always ways we can improve ourselves and I have a few things I would like to try in the future.

1. Be more open with my partner about my spanking desires
2. Meet other like minded people who are spanking enthusiasts
3. Be more houseproud!
4. Eat more healthy and with the environment in mind
5. Finish and publish at least one of the novel's I've been working on
6. Come up with something interesting to do on this blog!

This list will change over the year but I think that's a good start.

So what are your New Year Resolutions?

Keep safe!
