One hour, one blog. How hard can this be. Time to switch on some classical music. and pound the keyboard. I am not sure what to write about tonight. I am still fighting some reluctance about writing. So in this case, I have determined I will write. Whatever my mind is going to come up with and whatever the direction this is going to take in.

For me at the moment, the act of writing itself and getting words on paper is far more important then making sense. Well not entirely, but I hope that you get what I am referring to. To write, to put the effort in, to do it, or in short – here’s your screen, your parchment; now shut up and write.

And yes, as was said last week in reaction to my blog: Write when you want, when you feel you have something to say. I honestly wish that I could. If that would be the case, then i would probably never write. There are always other things that I can find to be doing.

And, writing is something that takes practice and nurturing. It is no surprise that my writing much improved over the time that I was with Mistress. At the same time there is a decline after this much time being left unchecked.  Heck I probably have been writing alone without her reading them since mid 2013 give or take. So by and large, that is not bad going.

It also means, that a lot of my writing, as much as it actually pains me to say, are my own. Yes she, my Mistress, may have given the incentive, even the encouragement to get me to write.  But the lion share of the work, the blood and tears that I have shed in my battle with the words are mine and mine alone. I try to take some pride in that, some solace even perhaps?

Good evening. After the very short, and perhaps emotional loaded blog from last week, I return to you this on the last eve of this week with something completely different. A lot more lighthearted then last week, perhaps even fun (I hope!).

Above all, this week is most definitely a longer blog. However I did mention last week in my very short blog that I was going to answer some more questions. Seems that was not going to happen. While spending some well overdue time with my dear dear friend Mara, I lamented about my lack of inspiration (strange considering that I have had several questions lined up) and not wanting to write.

She helpfully suggested, well .. as helpful as Mara always is, so I leave those that know here to come up with their own conclusions, that I write a blog named Mara’s Fault. That actually resonated within me and I started to write down the title and then inspiration struck me for a story and I started pounding the keyboard. A little while later, I had a new story, aptly thus named Mara’s fault.

It is something hard to see what way a story will take you, what format it is in and how the story will shape up. But you will see that. It is not something, style wise at least, that I have written before, so in many ways it is a kind of trial for me as well. If anything be kind! But I shall no longer keep you waiting.

By all means please enjoy …!!!

Thank you all for all the reaction I have had on my blog about manners and submissives. I think the post was missing something so rest assured that I will return to the post in question at some later point, when I have time to let it mull over in my head and get a better idea of what I want to say and maybe in a little bit of a more constructive format. Still, thank you all for the reading it and liking it.

This week I am going to depart from the previous topic and this week I want to post something about service orientated submission and I will follow that up next week with a more in-depth post and relating to this one.

It is actually Tuesday evening at the moment when I am sitting down and writing this as I am off to visit family over the Easter weekend and will not have time to write as I usually do on Saturday evening. But I will schedule this post, so it will be probably Easter Sunday by the time you all get to read this.

But onwards and upwards as they say. Today’s blog instead writing about what service oriented submission details, I am going instead to adhere to to the old maxim of “Show, don’t tell”. The follow service I was requested to write, by Domina Isabelle Helendale after several mornings of talking and playing. It was an interesting exercise both in thinking and attending as well in writing a large piece a couple of days after my regular blogging.

The brief given was as follows: “You will write me a service of you being at my vanity in my bedroom, brushing my hair and putting on my make-up, while loose chains are locked on
her wrists and ankles.

The result you can read below.

First of all a big thanks to all my readers, it seems you really liked my blog on “What if punishment isn’t?” I hit a new record for daily hits and I think I have had more likes on that post then I had on any other post before. So thank you, very much from the bottom of my heart.

This makes it sounds a bit like I am actually writing for the hits and likes and nothing could be further from the truth. I write because I have to, because I want to and because, after a fashion I like to write. I will not deny that I still struggle at times with finding topics week in week out. Regular readers of my blog will know that if I truly suffer from finding a topic to write, I tend to write freestyle, or as I am apt to name it: waffle a lot about nothing.

But I digress, as I was saying the opening paragraph does make it sound like the hits and likes are all that what matters in the end, but by and large my real satisfaction comes from having written a good blog, for my own feeling a good blog. The likes, the obvious signs of love that are bestowed upon me, are literally the icing on the cake and very much appreciated! So again; thank you very much!! I am really happy and pleased that you all enjoyed my blog so much.

For those interested, a couple of weeks ago, I wrote how I was struck down with a nasty bug in the form of a cold and a fever to boot. The good news of that is that I am quite sure to declare myself fully recovered to full health. I am no longer feeling like an old tea towel, and the cough is gone as well, which means I get a decent amount of sleep and my sides stop hurting as well. So yay!! Now if the weather will actually improve so we can have nice spring and bacon. That would be awesome.

In a little bit of worse news; Yesterday I was looking for some of my writing materials, mainly the work I had done on “Self Control” and especially chapter seven, and I found all was a single text file containing three hundred twenty-five words. I was gutted, devastated and a foul mood. Luckily most of the story is actually here on wordpress. But I lost probably a good five hundred words all in all on a new chapter. Yes, I had backups, but not good enough ones apparently.

The side effect of that is that I am not going to be writing about chapter seven. At least not this week, the pain is a bit too fresh and recent. However; I have another story lying around that I will give you instead. So please sit back and enjoy the first part of “The Instruction”.

Tonight I want to try doing something a little bit different, by writing a slightly different story in a slightly different style. I am not going elaborate where I got my inspiration from. Suffice to say that this will be in the realm of rather short story, but one I hope you all enjoy none the less.

One of the things that always amazed or amused me, much depending on your point of view, is that I have no trouble talking to people and explaining things in enormous lines of text as I do daily on IRC and in Second Life. However; sometimes sitting down and just writing a good thousand words for a blog post, I have the knack to clamp up at the best of times.

And this is strange because to an extend I enjoy writing, maybe it is the (emotional, mental?) masochist in me that wants to drag me through this. As you probably all noted my blog last week was not all that impressive, due to an fair amount lack of inspiration. Add to the above, that I am really someone who needs a deadline to write and you will start to see my problem. Sitting down on Monday and start writing ahead of time is not something that is usually in my system. Now imagine thus that inspiration strikes at the oddest of hours, although I will say that having a phone with an notepad next to my bed does help wonders with that.

So without much further ado, I am going to give you my next story to read. Like I said, it is a short story that has been playing around my head for a while. It was a bit of a  hassle writing it, as it is somewhat different from my usual style of writing (I think). Regardless of it,  I really do hope you like it, please any comments, constructive and otherwise are very welcome. Enjoy!!

a very short post

Today of all days has been a wonderful good day.

Meeting up with friends, having several drinks in good company and good food and the weather played its part as well. For once there was not an ice cold gale wind blowing from the North-East, but a nice sunny perhaps slightly cold afternoon. The downside of that is that I have not had thought about writing, except for it in the back of my mind.

First of all, the March Blogger Question and Answer month has passed and I have received all of exactly zero questions. Come on, people! surely I am not that scary that you love to all read my blog but not dare ask me anything. I mean anything? So to close the Q&A session any questions that are put in the comment section of this blog, by email (to lex . berchot (at) googlemail . com (and remove the spaces and such)), or asked to me in world, I will answer to the best of my abilities. After that you can always comment on my posts, either that or safe up all your questions to March 2014. And I was looking forward to the questions! *grins*

As I said it has been a good day, except in one regard … writing!

So after a long tiring but satisfying day, sitting behind my keyboard on draft-try #3 of a blog-post. I have tried one topic and found that my brain is too much mush. On the plus, while not ready for tonight’s writing, I have made a small start on the next chapter of my story. But I am not entirely satisfied with the format it is taking, so that needs some polishing. If you can re-define polishing in the same way a master sculpture polishes a block of granite with a large chisel. Part of me feels is that there is a still a lot more to tell to the story, but I must also freely admit that I have not plotted it or rather, the characters are not done, whispering their story to me. It takes time and I want to do it justice.

The most annoying thing tonight is that my brain is pretty much blank. I can not help wondering if the amount of social contact, may have exhausted my pool of things to talk about. Perhaps a side effect of being an introvert (and before anyone says something; no I am not shy, I do not come across as shy a lot of the time, mostly because well I am not. I am an introvert, which has nothing to do with being shy) that makes me have more of a need to recharge my internal batteries combined with being tired. Who knows.

I fear that this weeks block is really going to be short, I have been racking my brain for the last few hours about what to write about but nothing really is forthcoming. And with the hour growing later and later I think that the situation will not change. And sometimes I suppose it is also knowing when to stop.

At least I have written a little bit and hopefully next week I shall have something a bit more substantial. Right now I think that I am going to crawl into bed as I have another busy day planned for tomorrow.

So I shall bid you all a wonderful evening and have a lovely day. Until then …

have fun, stay safe.

So this blog comes on the doorstep of Easter and supposedly the starts of spring. Looking outside I for one, can not remember having have ever an Easter so cold. Perhaps it is because it is early in the year, but i know here March has gone down as one of the coldest months in the last fifty years or so. Perhaps in that case it may not come as a surprise that Easter may actually turn out to be colder than Christmas just gone.

Thinking back on last year, where we were enjoying a glorious spring, to the point of sitting outside in the sun and soaking up the rays. This year, however that proves not to be the case and the word of the week seems to be layers and wrapping oneself up (not not in that way!) and curled up sitting near a roaring fire to keep warm. On the plus side, a laptop (where I am writing this blog on at the moment), is also now happily functioning as a glorified lap-warmer

After trying to write something meaningful about the meaning of Easter, I have decided to pick up one of the chapters of my story. Yes, yes i know a long time coming. So without much further ado, I give you the continuing saga of “Self control“, and the latest chapter. Enjoy!!
