I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

About this fiction writing...


You all know I push for everyone to write fiction.  I won’t be stopping that any time soon.  I’ll ask for stories every Friday. The reason I push for everyone to write a story is that I’m pretty confident that everyone has one.  We spankos daydream about this stuff.  Most of us have had these daydreams for years.  Our Fantasy Friday stories are these daydreams written out.

I think I should have said assignment 5 should have been think about writing fiction. Writing should be fun – creating those things you’ve dreamed and making them come alive should be something you enjoy doing.  I wouldn’t want this to be a chore for anyone.  If you want to try it, just write it for yourself.  There is no dead line for ‘turning it in’.  Just think about it.

Some have said that you’d like to write a Fantasy Friday but you worry about spelling, grammar, whatever… and just don’t think you can write.  Boy, are you going to fit right in!  I wrote the first story I cared about when I was 15 and made the mistake of turning it in to the teacher who assigned it.  She ripped it to pieces, figuratively.  I was devastated.  The next time I tried a story I cared about was 34 years later when I started blogging.  I can look back at that story now and find tons of mistakes.  No one pointed out a single one, no one cares if I misspelled something, used quotation marks wrong or missed a comma.  They were reading the story and they seemed to like it fine.

I’m no editor (think math teacher, not English teacher) but if you should sent me something and I see a simple error I can correct I will. Some of my contributors are true writers most of us aren’t.  Donna told me I could use her as an example.  Her writing style is very simple but some how her stories have touched me as much as any Fantasy Friday stories I’ve ever published, you can see one of her stories here

Another thing I’ll always be happy to have stories for Fantasy Friday, but if you do start your own blog don’t feel you have to seen me your hard work – I’ll go read it anywhere.

One last thing, well two, my friend Terpsichore – the one who really got me thing about writing these last two posts.  You would all love her so much, but she never seemed really come out and comment all I felt she wanted to and she had no site of her own where you could go get to know her.  I’m happy to announce that has officially changed.  She began her blog yesterday and you can find it here.  A Place to Share.  I hope you’ll go by and welcome her.

And if you are out reading today I hope you’ll come by and read at Cassie’s Space too.  She has really been pestering me to do some writing for her these days and I finally did.

  1. Your thoughts are 100% right about writing. Just do it!!!!

    Until 2010, when I wrote my first full length novel, I had only ever written reports for work... The book has not been published in its entirity, but I may well do so in due course. Publishing it as a series gave me the confidence to be able to actually get paid to write articles and blog posts.

    So get started, and who knows you could even find a way to earn a few dollars!

    1. Longbean,
      Yes!! When I wrote my first Cassie story I thought that would be the only one. Now 467 stories later I hope to someday do a series of books. It's sooo much fun to write.

  2. Thank you for the encouragement PK. I have toyed with the idea of writing and will definitely think about giving it a go. I'm sure I can come up with some ideas :)

    I will definitely visit Terpsichore and welcome her.

    Hugs
    Roz

  6. Well in case anyone worries about grammar, punctuation....telling the story from ONE point of view, look at me! I never wrote a fictional story, except in my head or daydreams....nightdreams too.
    I think everyone here is just so wonderful. We just love when someone shares 'their' point of view.
    I can attest that PK will help.
    I have also relied on sunny and Ana.
    Please take a chance and share your stories!!!

    1. Minelle,
      If my old English teachers knew I was trying to write, much less trying to help others they would hurt themselves laughing!

  7. Yes I stopped by Cassies yesterday and will most likely again this weekend. :-) I love reading the stories and dont care about grammar its the characters that make it.

  8. What a good idea, I need some self indulgent reading - if I wasn't afraid of dropping my computer in, I would do it in the bathtub!
    Thanks sweetie,

    Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effectіνe.
    A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a fаntaѕtic job with this.

    ӏn adԁition, the blog loads very fаѕt foг me on Сhrome.
