Naturally, I'm happy - thank you Rocketdave - but? Swiss Miss Sissy is one of the few serials I ever attempted when I was just starting out as a writer - and it WAS NEVER COMPLETED. As a matter of fact one of the reasons I declined to do serials afterwards when other people were involved. At that time, I was also a bit of a homophobe. Pretty well knew that I wasn't homosexual - but scared shitless of associating with one.
So? Let me try and give you an idea on why Swiss Miss Sissy was written - and why writers shouldn't let stupid ideas get in their way.
I was writing a story that involved a lot of hairdressing. Knowing damn little about this subject I let it be known that I needed assistance in writing it. A young Swiss lady answerered my call for assistance. She was of great help - I think the story was "You". (Memory fails). Anyway? I wrote and thanked her profusely and - having got an idea of her 'hot buttons' wrote her a short story - just for her. As it so happened it arrived to her on her birthday and she was delighted. Wrote - offering to be my maid.
I sent her a laughing response saying that I was a sub. I was more inclined to be a maid than a mistress. She responded - immediately domming me - and saying that she wanted a story written, where she would provide the skeleton of a story that I would flesh out. I was delighted with the idea and got all sexually stimulated - BUT - would only do it as long as I was convinced that she was a 'real' woman. (Dumb shit.) She agreed - and we collaborated for five or six episodes.
THEN? I discovered that 'she' was 'male'! My heavens! I couldn't have that. Dropped her like a hot stone.
But? If you look at the 'style' of this story, you can see a difference between it and everything else I ever wrote. I could NOT finish it. I liked it - enjoyed it immensely if the truth be known - but it was well and truly beyond my capabilities to write in that fashion. A year or two passed and I even suggested a competition where readers could attempt to finish it. No takers.
Then, close to twenty years passed with me trying to contact my Swiss Miss - until finally I got serious - honestly wanting to offer my apologies for my stupidity - and I finally managed to make contact.
She was pleasant - and accepted my apologies. I think that I slyly suggested a collaboration again - but she wasn't interested.
So, there it stands. I always looked on this story as a favorite - but it wasn't only 'just' mine. It was the only story I ever published that was never finished - but I hope that you read it anyway - and just blame my stupidity for it being incomplete.
But? It looks as if this blog is starting to stand on it's own two feet. Thanks to all of you who contribute. Keep it up!
