This picture made me think of a story, today, one I wrote and submitted but is hanging in anthology limbo. I didn't get a rejection, but the antho is on hold, I guess... a sad little situation for the book and my story, really. It's about a chase and a hunt and some sex while tied to a tree... hmm, maybe I've said too much.

I didn't realise it at the time, but the flogger that's in the story, most probably looks just like this one. All dark red and pretty.

It's one of those stories where I'm describing things I actually have no idea about - I just sent it to someone who does, to read, and that makes me feel all squirmy. It's hard to explain. I'm not going to, it's hardly appropriate here :)

But god bless my imagination, let's hope it doesn't get me humiliated this time.

I hope that story gets to see the light of day soon, though, I like it. I like the photo too. Is it the shoes? The toy? Her ass? All of the above, I suppose, and her hair and shoulders too.

Sorry to hear about your story in antho-limbo. I've got a couple of those myself. I have, at times, just pulled stories back from limbo situations and subbed them elsewhere, when a good opportunity arises.

Anyway, love the image. A lot of action and energy.

The heels are a nice touch, but for me it is the tension in the hands and the taut muscles of her arms that really tells the story...

Yeah, the offer to resub elsewhere has been made alright. We'll see what happens.

It's a good frozen moment, isn't it?
