Over the last few months I’ve received some email and eavesdropped on some online gossip speculating about what happened. I thought I’d deal with those rumors (or rumours, for our Canafian and UK friends) before I explain what really happened. Here they are, in no particular order.
Rumor #1: Kat died.
Truth: Wow. This one was shocking. As Mark Twain said, “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Actually, that’s not exactly what Twain said, but close enough.
Rumor #2: Kat gave up sex.
Truth: If you believed this one, you must be high. Rumor #2 will only be true when Rumor #1 is also true.
Rumor #3: Kat was outed to her family like some other sex bloggers of recent years.
Truth: Nope. And I gave you my word that PWK would never go dark for that reason, remember?
Rumor #4: Kat found God.
Truth: To the best of my knowledge, God was never lost and my relationship is just as strong as it was when I was posting the nastiest of my sex adventures.
Rumor #5: Kat got religion.
Truth: This is very close to Rumor #5, but it’s not exactly the same. As many of you know, I’m a big fan of spirituality and maintaining a strong personal relationship with our Creator, but I’m not a big fan of organized religion. So, no, I didn’t “get religion.”
Rumor #6: Hubby found out.
Truth: Simple answer. No, he didn’t discover the blog. If he did, he hasn’t said a word.
Rumor #7: Kat hasn’t had any good sex for months so she doesn’t have anything to write about.
Truth: Au contraire! T has been making my toes curl on a regular basis over the last few months. Hold onto your hats! I’ll be sharing some of those stories soon.
Rumor #8: Kat quit prowling.
Truth: See response to Rumors #7 and #2. Seriously, this is me we’re talking about.
Rumor #9: Kat just got too busy to post.
Truth: This is partially true, but it’s not the main reason, nor is it the reason I was gone so long.
Rumor #10: Kat had to stop posting because she was finishing her book.
Truth: Actually, my book was published at about the time I quit posting. I’ve been writing lots of other things since then, but most were work related, meaning that I had no choice. PWK isn’t the only casualty of my three month pleasure writing malaise. I have several other blogs that languished as well.
So what’s the real truth?
It was a number of things. First, I just lost interest. I couldn’t think if anything I wanted to say. I know that sounds strange for someone like me, but it’s true. I didn’t want to post crap just for the sake of posting.
Second, I had some health challenges in recent months. For three weeks, my right hand was in pain and completely immobilized. Most recently, I underwent major surgery. So, for about half the time I was gone, posting would have been very difficult for me, even if I really wanted to.
But like I said, I really didn’t want to. I was uninspired. I had nothing to say.
Recently, ideas and inspiration started to return. I started taking notes about things I might want to write. Then, just as casually and as naturally as the desire to post slipped away, it returned strongly.
Kat’s back. 😉
Watch out. I’m horny and ready to take on the world.
