A bit New

Standard

Today I am posting Chapter 3 of His Blood but I have a bit more to talk about than that.

I know I haven’t spent a lot of time on this blog actually writing blog posts.  Last week was an anomaly but it felt a bit good for me.  Many of my posts have been really just announcements that I have a new chapter posted.  I’ve decided to change that.  I’ve decided I am going to try and give you a new blog post each week as well as a story update.

These blog posts will probably be sorted into one of three categories, with a lot of cross over among the three.  I see this blog being about writing, BDSM, and obviously Harry Potter fan-fiction.  So each week I plan to write something a bit more substantial that has to do with one or more of these categories.  I don’t really have a plan on what I will be writing each week but except that they will relate to one of these categories.

One thing I have been thinking a lot about recently is the fact I tend not to stick to a particular pairing in my writing.  For me any pair is free game as long as the fit the story I want to tell.  Now a lot of times this means there are some things that these pairings have in common.  I tend to pair off dark dominate men with with heroic submissive women.  This isn’t because I think that all men are dark or all women are submissive.  I match these pairs and write stories this way simply because this is the combination that I enjoy telling stories about.

I think I may have mentioned last week that I feel like my broader collection of pairings actually ends up impairing my ability to gain more readers.  My total lack of any real writing ability doesn’t help either I’m sure.  Sometimes I consider limiting myself more and focusing on one pair.  But this I have to think of who that would be and the very idea of having to choose makes my head spin.

If I went purely by the numbers of hits I get to different stories I would have to say Hermione/Harry as Smell of Submission gets more hits than any other work by a lot.  But here is a dirty little secret of mine… The golden trio are my least favorite characters to write about.  I have two main reasons for this.  First is that I think it is a whole lot easier for me to mess them up.  They are the main characters of the cannon books, so you get to know them pretty well.  Lesser fleshed out characters are much easier to make into what I need them to be for the story.  The second reason is that I feel like we got a whole series of following them around already.  They’ve had their time in the limelight, lets give someone else a chance!

That isn’t to say I don’t enjoy writing the Sense of Submission series.  I think this twist I have given the universe makes for a something new and interesting.  If you’ve seen my table of continues you know I am planning 5 stories in total and I just wouldn’t do that if I didn’t like what was going on.

So if I am not going to choose the most popular pair than how would I even choose?  I don’t really think I even have a favorite overall.  I usually just have a favorite of the moment, which can literally change from hour to hour.  As I am writing this, if I really had to choose a favorite right now I guess I would have to say Ginny/Lord Voldemort, but I am pretty sure that won’t last the hour…

So that brings me back to just writing a verity of pairings and playing it by what I am into at the moment and what fits the story best.  I’m interested to know what you guys think.  What pairing of mine is your favorite?  I’m going to put a poll here so it will be an easy question to answer.

No Power

Standard

As I may have mentioned last week I was actually away this last weekend and just got home.  The camp site I was working at had no internet or even power so I couldn’t really post.  I hope this isn’t too much of a let down as we finish Common Ground!  Tomorrow I will be leaving on my Honey Moon after 5 wonderful years of marriage to the best man I know.  We will be in a luxury hotel so I will actually try to post next Sunday.  Wish me luck 😉

Summer is Coming…

Standard

Okay so there is good news bad news and… what many of you may see as worse news. The good news is that I finished writing my midsummer story so I should be posting that when it gets closer to the holiday. YAY! The bad news is that I am not ready to start posting on Face of Death yet so I will be giving you another chapter for Common Ground this week.  The worse news is that Summer is Coming…

So summers are actually super hectic busy times in my life.  This means that I will probably not have nearly as much time to write as I do now.  I am also getting to the end of my pre-finished stories so… there may actually be some weeks that you guys don’t get an update 😦

I do have some stories I have started, but they are going to be long tales and I am not sure if I am comfortable starting posting them before I have a good portion of them done.  I am going to work hard to post something each week, but be warned… I may not succeed.

Oops

Standard

This is going to be another filler week I am afraid.  You are getting the second chapter to Common Ground!  I hope you guys enjoy this.  Next week is going to be tricky for me.  I still haven’t finished the first chapter to Face of Death and it is really really what I want to start posting on.  Wish me luck, maybe I will finish it today and then next week will be happy time for all.

Ending Another Story

Standard

There is no better feeling than actually finishing and posting a completed story for you guys.  Today I post the final chapter of Sharpest Wit- Part 6: Victory or Death.

You may want to know what is next?  Well I honestly have no clue what I am posting next week, which is why I haven’t been updating my calendar.. I know… It’s frustrating.  I am going to try to finish a chapter of Shame’s Desire by next week so you can have another taste of that story.  If I don’t finish anything by that time, I will be posting the second chapter to Common Ground.  Now you should know that Common Ground is an already completed story so you will get to see the end of it with only new chapters of Shame’s Desire interrupting it’s publishing.

On the other side of posting, the not sure sexual side that is.  I am working hard to have chapter 1 of Face of Death ready for you by the 21st.  I really am hoping to have it done and start posting regularly on that story as well.

My next Holiday Story will be for Midsummer this year.  I am already working on a sequel to Autumn Goddess for this story.  Like Autumn Goddess it will only be one chapter long, but should be a sizable chapter.

I’ll keep you updated.
