Long awaited update and 2 Questions

I know I haven’t posted a story in ages, and while I wish today would be the first in a long series of new stories, sadly, it isn’t. I do have a few in the works, however the story lines seem to lead more to novel length than short story. (one has 10 pages of outline just for the first half.)

I am posting because of some stuff at work last week. We had admin training (HR, procurement, legal etc) and one of them covered contract employee contracts. I don’t remember the exact opening our general counsel gave, but it was somewhere along the lies of “If there is any kind of relationship between the company and them, you have to have a contract explicitly stating the duties and responsibilities of both sides. We have template contracts for everything, so just ask for which one you need.” I was lost for the next hour daydreaming if they really had a contract for every kind of relationship and what would really be included in one involving domestic discipline, corporal punishment, BDSM or anything beyond vanilla sex. How would the indemnification language read? Would you include a grading scale for performance management? What about non-compete and non-disclosure aspects? Are there actually templates? Maybe an Open-Source DD agreement? What would a lawyer think when asked to draft such an agreement?

The other part of the training which led my mind astray was recruiting. There was nearly half a day on just finding the right person for the position. One of the things hit upon was how to find hidden gems; ie someone unbelievably perfect for the position. It was recommended we ask fellow managers of super-stars how they found that person and then search those avenues. It was quite difficult to keep a straight face when I kept replacing the words on the PowerPoint slides with kinky variants. Also, I was distracted most of the day with how people go about finding a kinky partner, especially in situations where publicly advertising such is not practical or too embarrassing?

So my two questions for you all;

  1. Do you have a relationship agreement/contract, and if so, what is included in it?
  2. How did you go about finding the yin to your yag?

Note: I will be asking these questions on my tumblr account also, and then correlating the responses in a later post.

~Happy Leap Day!

Here is to you

Here is to

The few and the brave,

The ones who fought for the free,

Those who gave their lives

And those who struggle with life

Whether American or British,

French or German, Russian or Israeli

All who fought to keep their country free

To the sailor and the soldiers

Here is to you

Thank you,

Veterans Day

Bridging the Gap

I’m working on trying to finish the “Collections” story, but part 2 is turning out to be really difficult. I have the end wrote, but the bridging the gap between the hotel room (end of part 1) and the start of part 3 is turning out to be a real challenge. I have the story line wrote, but the exact flow just feels wrong. This used to be easier, but I guess I must be out of practice.

Looking for some inspiration, or just a distraction. I started going through my stats. For the past 2 weeks Google has hated In Hushed Voices, giving almost no love. Then, on this past Wednesday, all of a sudden the views jumped by 10 fold. I wonder if this has happened to anyone else out there.

Since starting this blog, a good source of inspiration, especially for new stories, has been the search terms leading people to find the blog. Most of them are repetitions on the same few themes, but occasionally there a couple of gems and more often now, a dozen or so entertaining phrases. A couple of note in the last week are:

“waitrrss spanking” – I have bad spelling, but a search engine corrects your spelling for you. Just wait a second and the suggested correct spelling will be presented.

“mouthsoaping dom” – Tsk Tsk. You need to find a DOM to correct your language? You probably need a little more help just a mouth soaping.

“whack crack splat paddle” – That must be some paddle. Three sounds all coming from the same implement is impressive.

“taken to an abandoned shed spanking stories” – Ok, that is a little creepy. Sounds like the start to a horror flick that an erotic story.

“the spanking shop where bad girls are fixed stories” – Stories from the newest business in SoHo. Just stop by with that bad girl and get her “fixed.” 🙂

“wyoming cotact strip club allowing touching” – I don’t understand why this blog would be relevant, and what strip club anywhere allows touching?

“girls that probalby shouldn’t be bending over” – Don’t you mean “girls that DON’T WANT TO be bending over”?

“spanking position for caned in an suv” – Is this even possible? SUVs are big and all, but a canning takes some room. Now an RV, that would work.

“google” – Yes, one of the search terms was Google. I don’t think they found what they were looking for.

“nylon paddle swats” – I don’t think a nylon paddle would be very effective. It just wouldn’t have any rigidity, which is kind of the point of a paddle. Now a nylon strap is a different story.

“when you get spanked does the first swat hurt the most or the last swat” – This sounds like it deserves some experimentation. I think I just found a good use for that scientific method we were forced to learn in school. Of course lots of trials would need to be performed over multiple ladies.

“japanese spankings before wedding” – Now there is a wedding tradition I could find to love. So, do the bridesmaids each give the new bride a spanking prior to the vows for all the times she was a bridezilla and to warm her up for her new husband? Or is it the bride spanking her bridesmaids every time they make a mistake? I’ll have to do some research and see if this is true. Either way, it is a good story concept. White girl agrees to be a bridesmaid for her Japanese friend and gets in over her head?

 

Not dead….yet…

I know I have been a little slow at updating, but time seems to just disappear lately. I ended up getting promoted at the beginning of April, which would be a good thing, except for the fact that I still have to do my old job because i haven’t found anyone to fill it and my salary got cut. Of course I do have a nice shinny new title, complete discretion over the division and get profit sharing, but none of those things create another 8 hours in the day.

I am hoping to get the Spanket series finished up this weekend. I have a little issue with getting one of the transitions, and once it is fixed I can get the last four parts out. In the mean time I scheduled a new part to the Willow Groove series for tomorrow.  It’s been a while since it had an installment and I figure I’ll dribble a few more over the next few months, so by fall the pledges will have completed hell week.

Anyways, back to work…..and no, not the fun kind. 🙂

 

P.S. After I posted this I got a warning from WordPress about this being my 100th post. I hadn’t realized I was over 75, let alone nearing 100. Had I realized it, I’d have done something special. Maybe next week.

Alternative Uses

I was cleaning up my place earlier today so that the relatives won’t think to poorly of me when they start arriving this weekend. Under a stack of papers in my office I came across this nice maple hairbrush. I started to take it to the bedroom, when I questioned the move. Yes, I do keep combs, brushes and other grooming equipment in the bathroom attached to my bedroom, however I can’t remember ever actually using this particular hairbrush to brush hair.

Now, I know what you all are thinking; good size maple hairbrush that has never brushed hair, it must have a more impactful purpose. You would be sadly wrong. This poor little brush has never been fortunate to feel the soft tenderness of a naughty one’s bottom. A quick smack against my palm provided it could do the job, if it was ever allowed the opportunity.

But I don’t see that in the future. You see, this hairbrush has thick boars hair bristles, which happens to make it work perfectly for removing lint. Yes, I have a hairbrush that I only use to remove lint from my business suites and such. It may be a sad life for the hairbrush, but I don’t dare use it for anything else, since it works so well as a lint remover, and a good quality lint remover brushes are kind of expensive.

So I return the brush to the shelf in my closest thinking about the alternative uses for our many of the household items. Some are innocent, some are naughty and some are just down right sad.

Updates and such

I was looking at my calendar for the next month and realized, like most people, it is almost full already. This really doesn’t mean much more than updates may be a little sporadic until 2014. I am currently finishing up the Goldie Locques story and working on the concept map for a Christmas special. The real problem is currently the Christmas special is set to be  long. Really long actually. It also seems to be lacking that secondary message, which converts an handful of entertaining spinets into a good story. Maybe I need to watch more Christmas movies for some inspiration. Thought a dozen since Thursday is probably enough.

I like holidays. It is nice to be able to set work aside and relax without the guilt of someone else working while you are away, because everyone is avoiding work. Well, everyone outside of the retail and those stuck dealing with the health care website. Having worked for the federal contracts, I feel sorry for all those programmers who are getting the short end of the stick.

Lastly, I notice a tradition that I suspect might be dying out in America. When I was a kid, it was standard practice for everyone to tell something which they were thankful for during Thanksgiving dinner. This year I took note that it did not happen, and then looking back it hasn’t happened in years actually. It was kind of a silly thing to do, but it occurred ever year, no matter where we had Thanksgiving dinner. Now it feels like the next generations are missing out on simple little traditions because our generation thought they were silly, or we are just plain lazy. What will be next? Telling Santa what you want for Christmas?
