I have finished writing the Sacrifice. I know, I know. You've heard that one before.
It was finished in May (5 months ago), but I didn't like the way it ended. It took a while, but I split chapter 4 into two and added a lot of new material. So now, it is a five-part story and I feel much more satisfied with it.
It could use more work. I would really like to make the sex scenes longer and more intense, but I have decided that enough is enough. It's time to be done with this project and move on to one of the many other stories that need my attention.
Chapter 4 was submitted for approval today. Chapter 5 was also submitted, but I have asked that it be posted next week.
The story ends with five chapters.
The Sacrifice was a difficult story for me to write because of the dark subject matter. It was really difficult to separate myself from the characters, all of whom are deeply flawed and damaged.
Earl is drunk with power. He is selfish, self-centered, and egotistical. Everyone in the world is an object to be used for his own pleasure.
Sister Anne is a frail, wounded creature, riddled with pain and overwhelmed by guilt and a desperate, unyielding need to be punished and to be loved.
Even Phil is flawed in his inability to forgive, even on his deathbed (sorry if I spoiled anything).
This story is also written in a strange time in my life. While Sister Anne is being plunged into darkness, I am being lifted ever upward. It was difficult for me to write this story about descent, while my star is on the rise. There were many times when I wanted to just be rid of it, but I received many e-mails from fans asking for more.
Thank you for your e-mail and support. Without your kind words, I assure you, this story would never have been finished.
So, now you'll know. What happened to Julie? What will become of Sister Anne and Earl? And what about poor little Perdita? What happened to her?
The Sacrifice, Part 4 should be posted in a few days. Part 5 will follow soon!!!
I proofread part 4 and I was going to post it today, but... now, I'm seriously thinking about throwing in another sex scene and either making part 4 longer or splitting it into a 5th and final chapter.... I'm going to try writing the scene and we'll see how it goes.
Hey, just wanted to let fans know that I have finished writing The Sacrifice. It will run four parts. Part three has been posted and should be up shortly. Part four is finished, but I need to proofread and revise it. However, the major writing is done. If you absolutely cannot wait, contact me and I'll e-mail you a draft.
My work schedule is crazy and I can work long days. I travel a lot now, too. Thanks for being patient and sticking with my stories.
I really want to finish stories that I have started before I start anything new. I really, really want to finish Terminator With Love. I have the season 2 DVDs with me. I'll rewatch them and try to work my story into the existing one.
My story about a 19th century Southern plantation owner and his black slaves is coming along well and I may be ready to start posting that soon.
I'm glad the Sacrifice is DONE. It was a hard story to write. The imagery just got darker and darker and it was difficult for me to immerse myself in it. Honestly, it really made me feel uncomfortable. Don't expect another story like this from me again. It was just too much darkness and perversion. I know people love it. I've gotten a lot of positive e-mails. That's really the only reason I finished it. I couldn't leave my fans hanging.
I'll revise part four when my work schedule allows and hopefully, I'll be able to post it in a week or two.... hopefully.
Jasper, I received your e-mail but your hotmail address bounced.
To all the fans reading this, Jasper asked me if I am going to continue Terminator, With Love.
I'll post my response here so everyone can see. I definitely have not left Terminator to die a lonely death. The sad truth is I have only watched the first season and I am too big of a cheapskate to buy season two. However, I will be starting a(nother) new job soon and I'll probably break down and pay whatever I have to get it once I have money coming in.
Believe me, I tried continuing, but I really need to watch season two to make the story work. I still have plans for John and Sarah.... :)
Hey, I got a new job that will require me to move out of state. My Internet access will probably be spotty for the next few weeks. However, I will try to get The Sacrifice Part 3 finished and posted before I leave.
