Writing outwith your comfort zone…

12308274_191757731163599_1777885750739851470_nI must admit I’m never certain where my writing will take me next. However, my latest chapter has me entering the taboo world of BDSM. Well…just peeking really. Firstly, I didn’t even know what BDSM meant. A google search later, and it stands for Bondage, Domination, Sadism and Masochism. Yes, it’s a bit of a mouthful, I can see why it’s abbreviated. My character Guy is interested in this element for the new Stoicum Zone in the Braille Club. Aptly named because Stoicum is Latin, and by definition means seemingly indifferent to, or unaffected by pleasure or pain; impassive. This will not be like anything else out there. The Braille Club Zones and experiences are unique, which leads me to several different issues. The Braille Club has three commandments contained within the Braille Bible…IMG_0405 (1)

1.Thou Shall Not See.  2.Thou Shall Not Speak.  3. Thou Shall Not Tell.

So a safe word is not an option. There are no whips, clamps, or plugs. The Braille Club zones have always been about endurance, and the Stoicum Zone will add a new dimension. I need to find a way to incorporate these elements seamlessly  into my storyline, and I can’t wait to get writing.
