New story beginning at Cassie's today.
I head back to work tomorrow. I have enjoyed my break fully. I got to spend time with Nick and Mollie both, as well as having time to myself. As much as I love my family, I enjoy being alone with my thought too (although alone might not be the most accurate word). I often talk about spending a lot of time writing. I wonder sometimes if some of you think, writing what? I mean I only post on my blog a couple of times a week. I haven’t done a Fantasy Friday myself in months – so some might wonder, what I am writing.
Many of my readers and all my close friends out here know that I have another blog – Cassie’s Space. That blog is my true heart and joy. I love Cassie; she is one of my dearest friends. I do want to explain that I am not crazy. I am fully aware that Cassie is a fictional character sprung from my imagination. I have, however, never been able to convince Cassie of this fact. She thinks she’s real, so mostly I just humor her. She wandered into my head on a trip I took with my family, cross country, when I was eleven. Reading made me carsick so I daydreamed for the 6,000 mile round trip.
I had a whole family made up in my daydreams. Cassie was a minor character, grown and married even then. And yes, even then my make believe world contained spanking stories. And as I got older and became sexually aware these stories became fantasies. Cassie would tell me stories about the adventures she and Tom shared. As Cassie and I grew closer in age her stories were the ones I spent most of my time day dreaming about.
I began actually writing the stories I knew in June 2006. That’s nearly six years ago. I don’t post as often now. It seems to average about one story every three weeks there. I would love to write more, but this doesn’t go on my schedule. I can’t just write a Cassie story – I’ve tried, I can’t do it. I have to wait for Cassie to come along and tell me one. Yep, I know that’s back to sounding crazy again. But it’s truly how it works. When I begin writing, I honestly don’t always know what’s going to happen. It’s like the story reveals itself as I write.
So if I can’t write on command, what am I spending my time on? A Cassie book. Again this is something my friends here have been hearing me talk about so long they must think I’m making it all up. But I’m not. It’s taken from the blog, and this book only covers the first few months, but there is so much more added. I have a wonderful editor helping me – besides being fantastic at editing; she is also the busiest woman I know!! To say things are going s… l… o… w… l… y… would be a gross understatement. But she is helping me turn a spanking story into a real book! So when I tell you I’m writing, it’s mostly re-writing as my editor helps me fill in and expand what I’ve done.
Now I want to ask a favor of all my readers and a second one from all my blogging friends. One, if you are not familiar with Cassie’s Space, please go and read this story. It's the story of some of Tom and Cassie's travels. It’s in several parts but there is a link at the bottom of each to take you to the next part if it holds your interest. I think this gives a flavor of who Tom and Cassie are and you'll get to meet some of their friends too.
And now one more favor I’ll ask of my blogging friends. Would you consider linking to Cassie’s Space on your site? I really am proud of this site but it has a very small readership. I’d love to have more exposure. And if you are willing to do that, and if you'll let me know, I'll be happy to return the favor, here and on Cassie's Space. And one other thing (to add fuel for those that think I’m nuts.) I’ll be happy to answer any question about Cassie here, but over there, if you leave a comment (and I hope you will) Cassie will be the one answering. As I’ve said, she thinks she real and I’d hate to step on her toes.
