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? Senior Skip Day, Exposing the Liar, Camp Counselors in Trouble, Not Normal, Peer Pressure, Chemicals, Liar Liar Pants on Fire, and the Back on Track stories. I'm also really proud of the Molly ebook, which you can see a first draft excerpt here. 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? Ummm... I plead the 5th :) Most of my fiction stories are loosely based off real-life events, but way dramatized. My real-life stories are, of course, 95% real... the other 5% is what my stoner memory made up.
If you could be any of your characters, which would it be? Honestly, right now, none of them. I can stick with just writing.
When are you going to write another Shannon story? Ehh... it's very likely that I won't... BUT, you never know... maybe I can give Shannon a makeover like I did for Molly?
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? Oh, so many ideas. It's hard to know what I should run with and what's only interesting for my fucked-up imagination. You'll definitely see more of Allie & Natalie (yes, it's based off White Collar). I'd planned to make a series out of Starting Over but can't figure out where to go with it. And I have a final idea that I won't jinx yet. Let's see what happens :)
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... just look at how different my oldest story is from my most recent story!).
Questions relating to spanking:
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? Figuring out who I am as a spankee is a never-ending process... but I took this quiz on bdsmtest.org and came up with these results:
Do you want to be spanked, and how? Nowadays I don't want it as much. I prefer thinking or writing about it :)
Can consensual disciplinary spankings actually work to correct behavior? Ehh... sort of. In my experience, it depends more on the willingness to change behavior than the spanking itself. You can spank me all day every day for smoking weed, but I'll just find a better way to hide it from you. But when I was ready to quit smoking cigarettes, it only took 2 spankings and the promise of another for me to give my pack away and kick the habit.
What's your favorite spanking fantasy or roleplay? Hmmm, it fluctuates... I find that I often fantasize about getting caught smoking weed (by an older brother or father figure).
What's your favorite part of a spanking? The part right before, the anticipation, the scolding... the build up!
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
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? At this point, it's unlikely... but it's worth asking :)
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.
