Nurses eat their young: Wooden Spoon Chronicles (September)

If you’ve missed Kat and Natalie, you’re in luck! Their monthly serial is now available on my Patreon site.  In this present-day installment, we get a very exciting peek into news. I’ll give you a hint: Kat’s been waiting for this moment ever since Lighting the Way.

I hate clinicals.

Should I say that one more time?

I absolutely, positively, hate clinicals. Now that most of my nursing classes are finished, I have to rotate through different departments and learn how “real nurses” work.

Real nurses have a photographic memory, never make a mistake, and are single-handedly responsible for fixing all the wrongs in the world.

Oh, and they eat their young.

#SatSpanks, #8Sunday and #SnipSun: Raven’s Diary

WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS

Welcome to Saturday Spankings, Weekend Writing Warriors, and Snippet Sunday!

Raven’s Girl, the story of a would-be submissive and her sugar mama, was the surprise hit of the summer. Who knew the fantasy would appeal to so many?🙂

The premise is simple: A starving writer hooks up with a wealthy patron who provides a monthly stipend…and weekly discipline. Each Friday, Alena reports to Raven for obedience exercises, spanking, and exploration of dominance and submission.

Or, more accurately, fighting with her own need for submission.

Alena’s not going to submit easily, no matter what it costs her.

So, why does she submit? She’s curious about the lifestyle, of course, but she’s been curious for quite a while. Initially, financial need gives her the courage to try something new.

However, Alena can’t get past the cognitive dissonance of accepting orders when she is an independent, rational adult. Her default response–and stumbling block–is unthinking, determined resistance. At the same time, she craves the discipline Raven offers. What’s a competent, rational adult to do?

In Raven’s Diary, book two, we see Alena process the contradictions of her situation.

I hate having a domme sometimes. If I do what she says, she concludes that the method worked; If I don’t do what she says, she concludes that I need more “persuasion” or “motivation” to try her method.

Yes, it sends shivers up my stomach to know she can literally do whatever she wants with me. It does thrill me, I’ll admit. It makes Fridays exciting, and I can’t wait to see what she has planned each week.

But this bedtime is utter crap! No, I’m not going to say anything (it used to be midnight, then eleven, and now ten). I may not be the sharpest crayon in the box, but even I learned.

Everything I need to know in life, I learned from my dad

Seven months ago, I said goodbye to my father. This is a small summary of what his life taught me.

 

  1. Teachers are superheroes.
  2. Books are the best things in the entire world.
  3. Nobody will love a little girl like her daddy.
  4. Work hard.
  5. Hot cookies taste better with cold milk.
  6. Don’t be afraid to look stupid.
  7. Don’t be too cool to try something fun.
  8. When people are mean to you, they’ve probably got something crappy going on at home.
  9. Hold the door open for the person after you.
  10. Be honest.
  11. Be humble.
  12. When you are proud of someone you love, let it show.
  13. Boys are stupid.
  14. Don’t show your students an educational video that describes the length of a whale’s penis.
  15. If you accidentally show your students said video, flee the school before parents make phone calls.
  16. Never think yourself too important to apologize when you are wrong.
  17. Accept gifts, no matter how small, with the same love that they are given.
  18. Deep down, people are good.

 

Love you, Dad.

 

New bonus story!

If you’re a fan of Simple Gifts (or anything related to music), you’re in luck! The Anastasia Vitsky Patreon site now has a bonus story featuring our beloved Leila and Carene.

Carene, an orchestra teacher at a public school, fights budget cuts every day. Music programs are cut at many schools that struggle financially, so keeping her orchestra equipped is a challenge.

“You’re what?” Carene grabbed a heavy black music stand and set it down.

“Taking them to Mr. Reed.” The gangly eighth-grader took the stand back. He hefted it onto his right shoulder while lifting another onto his left

“But they’re for my kids.”

The student shrugged. “Not anymore.”

Carene blocked the door, her face growing hot. She had spent hours researching grants when the Rosebury Junior High administration turned down her request to update the school orchestra’s music stands. Most were hand-me-downs from the choir and originals from the school opening fifty years ago.

Carene’s voice rose. “The band has the newest stands already!” She wasn’t giving up her precious new equipment without a fight.

If you’ve ever had to struggle with budget cuts, you’ll understand Carene’s pain. Find out more on my Patreon site! You’ll also get advance invitations to events, an exclusive newsletter, and plenty of other perks for subscribers.

Simple Gifts

Music. Without the love of her life, how can Leila learn to live again?

Professional violinist Leila Feran is accustomed to fame as the youngest and first female concertmaster of the Philharmonic Symphony. Driven to achieve ever-increasing heights, she injures her wrist so badly that she may no longer be able to play. While she recovers, she moves in with her childhood best friend, a pianist and beloved orchestra teacher in a small town.

Carene welcomes Leila with open arms and only one condition: no divas allowed. And if Leila can’t follow the house rules, she might find herself over Carene’s knee…or worse. In between arguments over physical therapy and house rules, Carene’s zero-tolerance policy regarding divas results in some old-fashioned discipline that changes into something more.

Will Leila and Carene’s new feelings for each other blossom into something wonderful? Or will Leila lose not just a potential soul mate, but also her friend?

WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORSFor Saturday Spankings, Weekend Writing Warriors, and Snippet Sunday, I’m showcasing an excerpt from Raven’s Girl, the prequel to Raven’s Diary (coming out September 22).

Raven’s Girl, the story of a would-be submissive and her sugar mama, was the surprise hit of the summer. Who knew the fantasy would appeal to so many?🙂

Alena’s not going to submit easily, no matter what it costs her.

So, why does she submit? She’s curious about the lifestyle, of course, but she’s been curious for quite a while. Initially, financial need gives her the courage to try something new.

Alena stared at her computer screen in growing dismay. “How many thousand dollars?” She should have estimated self-employment taxes all year long, but the forms intimidated her. Sticking her head into the sand put off the evil day, but it made eventual reckoning that much worse. She rattled her shoebox crammed with receipts for prizes, postage, giveaways, and books. “I spent how many hundreds of dollars on business expenses, and I still have to pay a fortune in taxes?” Even worse, she owed penalties for not paying earlier in the year. She calculated her current bank balance. She could pay rent, but unless royalties came quickly she had no money for anything besides a room to sit in. She couldn’t pay internet or electricity bills, but at least the providers wouldn’t turn off her service for a few months.

If you liked Raven’s Girl, you’ll love Raven’s Diary! The sequel takes us further into Alena’s journey through submission. Or, more accurately, Alena’s journey into everything BUT submission.

Have you ever read a D/s book and wondered, “Why would anyone willingly obey?” Raven’s Diary will show you what happens when a competent, intelligent adult realizes that submission isn’t nearly as fun in real life as she thinks it will be. Fun and games as fantasy, but not so terrific in real.

What keeps Alena going? Why does she stay?

More to the point, why does Raven put up with her?

Find out in Raven’s Diary!
