Questions relating to stories/writing:
Do you ever write anything non-spanko? Nowadays I write a lot of non-fiction, but not so much fiction. Hopefully I'll be getting back to writing the fun stuff soon :)
When did you start writing spanking stories? When I was 16. I got a job over the summer and stayed with my grandma and no mom. I stayed up all night writing, slept all day, then went to work when I woke up. Those were the days.
Which character do you most relate to? Hmmm... probably Danielle... I hadn't originally planned for she and I to be so much alike, but looking back on it, yeah, we are. And of course there are a lot of misc stories that I relate more to, but you'll have to figure those out for yourself.
Which stories are your favorite? I really like reading over the plottsy misc stories, like Senior Skip Day, Chemicals, Fed Up, Liar Liar Pants on Fire, and the Back on Track stories. I really get into stories where the girls have gone waaaay too far, and really deserve a good spanking. To me, those are the best. But I don't have a particular favorite.
How close are the stories to real life? Most of the things in the stories I have done, or are planning to do, and have never gotten spanked for it. I usually base the characters off of real people and generally change names. Brian (from the Molly stories) is one of the only characters that I didn't base off of a real person. Sometimes the situations happen, but usually everything just comes out of my head.
If you could be any of your characters, which would it be? Honestly, right now, none of them. I'm quite content being who I am :)
When are you going to write another Shannon story? Whenever I find the inspiration. I love my Shannon stories, it's just hard for me to get into writing them sometimes. She's really bratty and I have to find my inner brattiness to write her stories. Besides, the series is half over... who really wants it to end?
Why is the Shannon series half over? You aren't honestly gonna end it when her parents get back! Yeah, I probably am. I might do a few more stories when she visits her brother or something... I dunno. I have to end my stories sometime!
Are Ashton and Bri going to get together? Actually, I know the answer to this question lol. I've planned out where I'm going with the series and I'll tell you if you really want to know. I hope to write a little more with Bri, merge her with another character, and then focus on Ana's newest situation. Of course, I have so many ideas that I'm not sure it'll ever get finished.
Do you have any ideas for a new series? Yes... I'm working on a series based in Mexico which is going to be really plottsy and probably a little too deep for a spanking story. I'm also thinking about making "Back on Track" a series, but not quite sure about that yet. And then like I just mentioned, I want to merge Brianna with another character which would be kind of like a series, and add some drama to Ana's life that kind of makes a new series, too. And finally, Mackenzie and I want to write a series together that's political and/or adventurous (not sure what it's going to be yet though). A newd idea is that I want to write an ebook about a spanko's experience in Europe!
Were you as bad as your characters when you were in high school? Hahaha... no... but after high school I've been as badly behaved as some of the characters :P
I always want to write a story like you but I don't know how! Any advice? In my opinion, the key to writing a good story is to put yourself in the character's position. Play out the story in your head before you write it, and imagine yourself as the character. Then tell the story as if you're telling it to a friend. Maybe even write it like you're writing a journal entry. The important thing is to have an imagination, and of course it takes practice (that practice thing is super important... now that my stories are in blog format, you can read my first story and my most recent story and see how much improvement has been made).
Questions relating to spanking:
Have you ever been spanked? Yes. I got my first consensual spanking when I was 18 by a friend at work and was spanked for "fun" by friends for a while. When I was 20 I met up with someone I'd met off the internet for a punishment spanking. Then I was in a serious relationship until I was about 23, when I started meeting people for random spankings. I've become friends with a lot of people that I've met over the years, and nowadays I'd prefer for them to spank me rather than just do the random thing. Although, if I'm randomly visiting another country, I'm for sure looking for spanking play. Something exotic about getting spanked by someone whose first language is different from your own.
Were you spanked as a child? Not really. I grew up in the south, of course, so spankings were not unheard of. I was swatted a couple of times, and if I was ever actually spanked, I don't exactly remember it. The closest thing to a spanking I ever got was a couple of whacks with the belt when I was 11 because I slapped my mom (way to go for me). That's why I wrote the Patrick story.
Do you think you'll spank your children? I don't really plan on having children... but this is usually a question of whether or not I think it's right to spank children. I don't like this debate because I think it depends on a case-by-case basis. I think that there are definitely other alternatives to extinguish first and that spankings are usually unnecessary. However, my southern upbringing always comes out when I'm around obnoxious kids and sometimes I find myself saying (to myself of course), "someone really ought to spank him/her."
Did you know anyone who was spanked, or did you ever see anyone get spanked? It's not unusual to know someone who got spanked... I have loads of friends who have told me about the spankings they got when they were kids... like one friend who got spanked with the belt because she wouldn't shovel snow, or a kid who was telling the story about getting spanked with an extension cord once. I actually did see a friend get spanked when I was about nine years old, and I wrote about that in the story "Sneaking Out." It's always so awkward to listen to. Makes me squirm.
What's your favorite implement? Belt, duh
What's the thing you need to most be spanked for? Hmmmm.... hard to narrow this down to just one thing. We'll say procrastination because it's easy and obvious.
What's your favorite position? OTK, of course. And lying down on the bed.
What kind of spankee are you? I'm a genuine spankee... I respond to what I feel. If it doesn't hurt, physically or emotionally, I respond like it doesn't hurt. On the other hand, if it does hurt, I whine and squirm and apologize and all that good stuff. What makes it hurt depends on the person and how open I am. If it's someone new, I'll likely be really subdued and take the spanking well. If it's someone I know really well and it's playful, I can be a little dramatic (I don't know why, but it really hurts more when it's someone I know and I always try to fight it lol). If it's someone I know and it's super serious, and they get me into the mindset, I do submit and don't fight. I've only cried once from a spanking.
Do you want to be spanked, and how? Of course I want to be spanked. But I think mostly, I want to feel cared-for. I want a group of friends who genuinely care about me as a friend, live within a reasonable commute, and spank me for my own good. I'm becoming more and more picky about who I will allow be this person for me. Nowadays, I'm focusing on maintaining good relationships with my current friends, even those who live in other countries. Who knows, someday I might live within a reasonable commute from them :) An update -- now I have a spanko roommate!!
Would you ever want a sexual spanking? I would say "define sexual spanking" but then I realized that I'm the one who made these questions up. So I guess I get to define it. No spanko can deny that spankings have some kind of sexual pull to them. Most of us will admit that we get turned on by the thought of it. It puts us in a difficult position because we claim that we want discipline, and it seems like it defeats the whole purpose of discipline if that's what we want, right? Anyway, I don't think that all spankings are sexual, but I think some spankings are "playful" and therefore more sexual and fun. By playful I mean playful disciplinary, like playing pranks on the Dom or being sassy in a cute way. I *do* want that. I also want real disciplinary when necessary. I don't want anything without the discipline attached.
So do you think disciplinary spankings work to correct behavior? If the spankee wants them to, then yes. Sometimes I've been called out for behavior being unnecessary and just wanting attention. And it's true. Sometimes I do things just because I want the attention that spanking will provide. Sometimes it's light-hearted and playful and I just prefer to get spanked for an actual reason than asking for one. Other times I cross the line, and do things that could be destructive to myself. In these cases, I've been told that I will not receive a spanking for the behavior because it would be rewarding my bad behavior. I'd advise against any Spanker ever saying that. It doesn't work for me, and doesn't work for many of my spankee friends. We are not submissives. If you tell me that you're not going to punish the behavior, it ends up becoming more detrimental. I keep pushing until one of us gives up on the other. That being said, I think the most important thing in a spanking relationship is the friendship. I don't think that a spanking is necessary most of the time, but it is an expectation held between both parties. If expectations aren't met (on either end) then it needs to be discussed. If a spanker doesn't think that the spankee should receive a spanking for a particular behavior (and the spankee does), then they should talk about it and reassess their relationship. And vice versa... if a spankee really doesn't think that s/he should be spanked for something, then s/he should talk honestly with the spanker.
What's your favorite spanking fantasy or roleplay? Older brother, of course. I'd like to get scolded from doing something wrong, then spanked... yeah. I guess my fav thing to think about is pretty much what happens in "Not Normal"... getting high and in a fight, then spanked at home by the older brother figure.
What's your favorite part of a spanking? The part right before, the anticipation, the scolding... and then of course, trying to sit down afterwards. It's mostly psychological for me, but I will admit that I do enjoy the pain a little.
What age range would you like your spanker? An ideal age range would be anywhere from my age to about 7 years older. Fortunately, it doesn't always have to be ideal. If it's the right person, it really doesn't matter how old he is.
Do you look on the internet for someone to spank you? Eh, I have my off and on time. So depending on when you read this, the answer could be yes or no.
When did you realize you were into spanking? I've always been into spanking, like many spankos... I think it clicked when I was 14 and one of my buddies told me if I ran away from home, he'd find me and give me a "good butt whoopin'" And I almost considered running away just to see if he would do it... but I didn't.
Do you have an older brother? No, I'm an only child
Do you really do ecstasy? Not anymore, but I do smoke.
Are you really an atheist? Yes
Do you self-injure? Not anymore
How did your whole "older brother" thing get started? Okay, I guess I should give some background here. When I was a kid, I always thought about being spanked by a dad-figure (or a principal haha). My mom got married when I was in middle school, and I had to move schools and change friends and I felt so alone for the first time in my life. Part of it is because I was a pre-teen and going through that "stage" (as the adults call it)... but part of it was because of all the changes and not having anyone to listen to me or understand me when I really needed it. That's when I started developing this desire for a sibling, particularly an older brother who understood everything I was going through, but didn't excuse it. An older brother who would listen to me, agree with what I was saying, but tell me that my behavior still warranted a spanking and he was going to give me one. It didn't seem like a parent could ever provide this for me.
So did you ever find that "older brother" you were looking for? When I was younger and went to this small amusement park all the time, I considered some of the workers there an older brother figure. Then when I was a freshman in high school, I was really good friends with someone who had an older brother who had loads of friends and I considered them all older brothers. The only problem was that we weren't really *that* close. Nowadays, I for sure have people I could consider that presence in my life. I have a handful of spanko friends that have earned my respect because they do understand me. The thing that's missing is the certainty of unconditional love. Oh, and most of them don't live within driving distance.
Why don't you update more? I'm working on that.
Will you write a story for me? Probably, but I'm busy a lot of the time and I also have the tendency to forget.
Anything else? Comments and page views really keep me going... so please, if you like something, even if it's just an anonymous comment, or a "like" to the post, I really appreciate it :) I also appreciate all of the fans who have been here since almost the beginning, some of which I know, others I don't. Don't be shy to contact me if you think we have a lot in common and you enjoy chatting. Or if you're new to this spanko thing and I can help you figure it out a little.
