A question from Roz

Roz asked,

How was the writer's conference?
How are you enjoying retirement?
Is Nick still 'helping' you with your health goals?

The writing conference was fine – but not thrilling. I really do want to go to a Blushing Book conference sometime. As for this conference, I went with my friend, who knew many of the women there. I only knew her. The speakers were interesting, but said nothing earth shattering or enormously helpful. And then there is that feeling of being the red-headed, step child among the writers. I mean they can write explicit sex, they can write horror, murder, rape and everyone just nods along. Then when they come to me and I tell them I write Domestic Discipline – spanking stories, there are raised eyebrows and several ‘Oh’s’. I’m not the least embarrassed by what I write, but I will feel much more comfortable at a BB conference where TTWD is not only accepted, but encouraged and loved.

Retirement is fantastic!

 It ranks right up there with marriage and having my kids. I sleep until I want to get up. I can spend several hours a day writing. I can get groceries or run errands in the middle of the day if I want. Mollie has needed me to help her with some things lately and I’ve loved having the freedom to do this running around. So far retirement has fully lived up to my expectations and I’m loving every minute of it.

As to your last question Roz, it needs to be a blog all its own. It may be up in a couple of day or I'll mull over the answer while I answer the other questions.

Hi PK, thank you so much for answering my questions. What a shame you didn't get as much out of the conference as you were hoping. I hope you do get to go to a BB conference.

So glad to hear you are enjoying retirement, that makes me smile :)

Look forward to your last answer when you are ready :)

Hi PK, We too love retirement, after thirty five years of marriage to get to spend each day together doing things we want to is great. It is a shame about the writer's conference, you need to find a kink one, I believe there are a few in England if you fancy a visit....
love Jan, xx

Hi PK, Pity about the conference. A BB one would be much better with like minded writers. Retirement is wonderful, I agree with you. Nice not to have a schedule to stick to for any plans. Looking forward to hearing about the last question.
Hugs Lindy xx

Makes me happy that you are thoroughly enjoying your retirement. I agree with Jan, a few in the UK you could attend:) Look forward to reading answer to your last question from Roz.

I'm with the others on the writing conference, sad for you to feel like the odd one out, but I'm so thankful for your great stories! Curious how your last question will be answered.

I know you are always striving to do your best on the writing front, but to the author of my beloved Cassie stories, I say "Screw them."

Thanks - I wondered how our writing would expected with the mainstream group.

That's too bad about the conference, PK! I agree with the others, you will feel better in a like-minded conference. I hope that you get to attend one in the future.

Your retirement sounds lovely! I am so happy for you! Enjoy! You've more than earned it.

Hope that things are going along okay with your health goals. Many hugs,

<3 Katie

I did have fun seeing some family!

At 9:19 PM, Blogger PK said...

I'd love to find a kink one somewhere! I wonder when Nick will retire. He doesn't like not having anything to do.

At 9:20 PM, Blogger PK said...

I'll go to a BB one some day for sure.

At 9:22 PM, Blogger PK said...

While I would love to meet all my friends there face to face I'm not wild about traveling that far.

At 9:27 PM, Blogger PK said...

These folks didn't make me feel bad, they weren't unkind to anything. But I could tell they didn't understand. I'm looking forward to a BB conference

At 9:27 PM, Blogger PK said...

They weren't ugly or anything. I guess it's hard for vanilla's to understand.

At 9:28 PM, Blogger PK said...

They mostly seemed a bit amused.

At 9:28 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks Katie, I could be doing better.

At 9:08 PM, Blogger Cat said...

Happy you are enjoying nice to be able to help Mollie. Do hope everything is going well with your health.

Hugs and blessings...Cat
