‘I Write This Sitting At a School Desk’

I’ve been enviously reading about a company that’s placed its employees’ offices in a pirate ship, a fake cave (with a fake waterfall in it), and hell knows where else, to give their creativity a boost. (The article was originally linked from Web Worker Daily.) I hope it’s working for them, and they don’t just end up playing with bits of office scenery on company time, the lucky monkeys.

I can just imagine a zap of creative energy I would get from stationing myself in a kink-inspiring location every time I was writing a spanking story.

Is it time to spank a schoolgirl? Welcome to our well-stocked classroom (with a power socket for your laptop, or freshly filled ink pots if you’re in favour of full immersion).

Are Navy floggings calling your name? Here’s your ship, the ‘gunner’s daughter’ to tie your sailors to, and the cat o’nine tails; off you go.

Our country house welcomes spanking writers. The kitchen is ready to be populated with imaginary maids; feel free to examine our collectiong of corsets for dressing up your characters.

In reality, Abel and I often end up in inspiring locations, where my notebook fills to bursting with plot ideas (which we may never use, but still), but most of our actual writing happens at prosaic cafes, hotel rooms and the good old office at home. Our real school desk is a good start, but it’s not much help when I need to whip harem girls or mermaids.

Clearly, we need a wealthy benefactor with spare pervertible premises.

    I think you do very very well without the pervertible premises :)
    I’m going for a swim in the morning and hope to be inspired on the whipping of mermaids because I must admit, sitting at my computer I’m struggling with that one! 😉

    ROTFL Sarah, that cracked me up. Maybe I should try the swimming pool too, sounds like a great idea. Mind you, ours is more likely to be full of blue-haired old ladies, but they might be mermaids in disguise, right?

    The blue hair sounds promising for mermaids but sadly I think they’ll turn out to be…erm… blue haired old ladies, tutting if you dare to swim past and splash said blue hair even a tiny bit because they hate to get it wet you know!

    I could work for half the money if given an office on a pirate ship! *sigh* Some people ARE lucky, Haron…

    I probably wouldn’t work for half the money, but I’d work twice as hard… which must also be nice. :)
