A new challenge

I'm a lil bit distracted peoples, I do apologise. I've started writing for a new blog called Winterbrook Hall. Go check it out if you haven't seen it yet. It's basically a story about life in 1907 and we are writing various characters in a grand old house with gentry and servants and of course spankings and all sorts.

I signed up to taking part with many concerns and questions. Is my writing good enough? Can I write to deadline? Can I develop a character, or characters even, throughout a year? Will I get bored and give up after a month? Can I work collaboratively with others? Will we all kill each other?

And many of these concerns are still there, time shall only tell but I'm giving it a go anyway. Sure I love a challenge!

So far it's been a lot of fun but understandably quite time intensive as we get it up and running. The discipline of writing on demand and therefore being creative on demand is new for me and I'm trying to take advantage of my initial enthusiasm to get a lil bit ahead of myself with posts.

Therefore my mind is very much on the characters I'm writing and how they are going to develop and what might happen to them. Added to that Eliane and I are spending many, many hours discussing plots and interweaving our characters. Our biggest problem so far is a reluctance for our characters to get spanked. Someone really needs to point out that's the whole idea! But it's all very exciting.

So between thinking about it, thinking about writing it, actually writing for it and reading up on the Edwardian era I'm quite distracted from my usual ruminations on life, kink and the universe. But I hope it'll be worthwhile in the end and I won't stray far from here, my refuge in a mad, mad world!

I have to say, I'm loving the discussions and the plottings. Even though we are sometimes plotting at rather, um, innappropriate times ;-)

Winterbrook Hall is a worthy successor to Lowewood. I look forward to reading your contributions.
