Weekly Round-Up

That’s Imbolc (pronounced Eemolk) if you are of Celtic rather than Anglo-Saxon persuasion. It is supposed to be a day of awakening; halfway between Yule and Ostara, widely regarded as the first day of spring. I don’t know about where you were, but I think it snowed on 2 February; there was certainly no sign of spring.

As if to underline the challenges of the coming year my Word software has crashed and needs installing (or taking out and shot) and I have had to resort to WordPad for writing, hence the increased chance of typos.

Nevertheless, Spankville has taken it to heart and it looks like we are warming up to a good year. I have been featured on not one but on at least three blogs this last week. Firstly, the successful and talented Natasha Knight carried an interview with yours truly exploring my personal history and views on being a Dom. I wish my Amazon sales matched hers. Oh well.

You might remember I reviewed one of her books sometime back and if I ever get the chance I will review another. Her book Given to the Savage caused such a stir it had to be renamed so as not to frighten the Amazonian Horses. In any case it is apparently the number one best SCi-Fi Erotic novel according to at least one award,

Secondly there is good and bad news from Blossom and Thorn (Aka Season and Michael). They are fully on the mend and returning to health. However, they are for the time being (I chose to believe) retiring from blogging. Their last post was quite flattering to one DJ Black, but more to the point they name checked a good many more in a fulsome open letter. We wish them luck.

In a third but worthy mention of this blog, Chross draws a comparison with my short story the Deal and Weeds. Not having seen the show I hadn’t thought of that, but I can see where he is coming from. There is a much discussed spanking scene in a car that I have seen. Actually this story was a revisit to a gangster short I wrote a few years back. But I have already noted that I occasionally lift ideas from sources unconsciously. My only defence is that the words are creatively constructed by me even if the plots are sometimes borrowed. After all Shakespeare did it.

Before you wince at my crude comparison with the great bard, it was just a handy segue into a mention of the playwright on the Spank Statement. It carries a discussion of spankings that might have been in Shakespeare and features some pictures from productions where this has been addressed. One is republished above.

One of the pictures above I found via Chross, to give him full credit but given it is by Little Noddy on Deviant Art, I thought it worth including.

Other pictures were taken from: Acknowledging Imperfection (via AAA), About Spanking, Cutiepie, Spanking Toons, Scarlet’s Real Magic, Girls’ Boarding School, AAA, Able and MarQue.

    I wish I had a very strict mistress paddle my bare ass very hard and very red and very sore at slut sit down on it for a week

  2. Hello DJ! The interview was wonderful. I tried to leave a comment for Natasha telling her so but I couldn’t figure out how to do so as Scarlet instead of RL me, and finally gave up. Thank you for the heads up on Blossom and Thorn–i went over to tell them goodbye. :(. And there are only 12 true plots in the world, and Shakespeare used all of them, so I think you’re free to rewrite any of them. It will always be a different story –and an enticing one–told with your voice. XO, Scarlet

      Thanks Scarlet and I am glad you liked the interview. 🙂

      I had two tries at leaving a comment using different accounts 😦 It is a perennial problem with blogspot.

      Shakespeare didn’t have the benefit of modern tech and some sci-fi although Midsummer and the Tempest almost anticipate such plots… 🙂

    Thank you for the mention and the kind words, DJ, it is greatly appreciated and makes a difference.

    Scarlet, thanks for stopping by Blossom and Thorn and leaving such a lovely comment. 🙂

    As for a return to blogging, definitely not in the short-term, but once certain health issues are resolved who knows what the future may hold. And while our situation has limited us visiting blogs out in Spankville we always kept your site at the top of our list, DJ, and will continue to be regular, if silent, visitors.

    All our best to you and the lovely Indigo.

    Season & Michael
