As most of you know- John and I live the lifestyle of D&S. Part of his requirments for me is to maintain a punishment book. I HATE the thing. However, I finally found a good use of it (other than kindling)
I write what I know. Most of my stories have strong elements of truth and true life experience in them. Yes, the scenes, character descriptions and financial situations are largely fiction, the interactions- dialogue- discipline is all based on reality. I've been able to use my punishment book to help devise more story lines than I know what to do with. Hopefully, by the time the stupid book is filled, I will finally have learned my lesson and not have to start a new one. Do you think there is any hope in that? Let me know!
