Super Hereos have them. And so do most spanking bloggers. Sure, the answer could be capes or brightly colored boots, but what I'm talking about is an alter ego. A secret life.
As I am spending more time blogging, writing and connecting with others in the spanko world (and having a great time doing it) it's becoming a bit more tricky to keep the two worlds separate.
I have a vanilla friend who wants to publish a book. I've got quite a bit of knowledge about that, but I can't share it all without raising suspicions, so I share some info and tell her I read it "on some blog".
I am super duper excited about finally having my two new books out, but when people ask "what's new?" I just smile and change the subject.
One of the tricky things, and I'd love to hear from others out there who have some of the same experience, is accounting for my time. I'll spend hours tinkering with a story, laboring over the words, editing and then cowering in self-doubt and when someone asks how I spent my day, I have to come up with some lame story about watching TV or doing the laundry.
Recently Spanky had a post about his love of redheads. Shortly after that I met a young woman with beautiful auburn hair and green eyes and I kept thinking "who was talking about redheads lately?" then I remembered Spanky's post. I didn't mention it to her. Sorry Spanky.
Batman had Alfred, the trusted butler who knew his secret and helped him keep it. How about you? Who knows about your secret life?
Have you had any close calls where someone almost "lifted your mask" (this is figurative, not kinky)?
Any pointers for keeping things separate?
