Reality vs. fantasy

I have recently realised that I find it very difficult to write about real scenes, even when sometimes I want to. Other bloggers seem to find this a lot easier, or at least are more disciplined about doing it. Whilst I ramble on quite happily about the ideas and headspaces that come from scenes, or fantasy scenes and images I struggle a bit on writing up actual scenes. When I do I'm rarely happy with them or don't like the way they've come out so they often never make it onto the blog, which is actually quite frustrating.

It's odd because I'm pretty comfortable in writing fiction and thoughts from scenes but seem to have a bit of a stumbling block over write-ups. So I put it off and the moment passes, or drafts are consigned to the rubbish bin. Part of me wonders if it's a little bit to do with being a bit uncomfortable about getting that far inside my own head when putting pen to paper. I also have a bit of a tendency to lose sight of the details when I'm playing - I'll probably remember being caned but probably not how many for example. Not unless it's a very rigid and formal play where the number is a focal aspect.

Strange though, and I must try to get better as it would be nice to record certain things for posterity...

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Don't know why: although I can sometimes write about play activities, I can find that I've played a magical scene and then just not been able to it justice in writing.

It's almost as though I don't know where to start in trying to capture what happened, or that what works in reality would sound contrived on the page. Or that it's just impossible for the written word to capture the intensity and intimacy of the bond that's created in some scenes.

Whereas I can summon up kinky thoughts to write about almost at will...
