Who Are You

This is a 14 chapter story that I am hoping to post a chapter each day. However I will be out of pocket celebrating Thanksgiving a week early with family up north, burr!!! I will try to post while I am away, but I have to depend on spotty wifi and such. Hang in there I will finish this soon.

Whoa!!!

First I never figured that that many people read my blog. I thank you one and all for reading my ramblings. I have been inundated with emails from fans who have offered to help. I received so many emails that I can’t possibly have everyone assist me. I have two picked out that are working on a couple of chapters. If they don't work out I have many volunteers to call on at that time. Thank you all for your support.

I need a Proofreader

Due to real life intruding on my excellent proofreader, I am seeking a new proofreader for my stories. I have one story done, but needs some TLC from a good proofer. Please if you can catch errors, please contact me at my email.
Thanks

The Perils of Pot

This has been a first for both of us. Neither one of us has really collaborated on a story before so we really would like some feedback concerning how you liked the blending of our strengths. I know that StangStar06 added more than just an ending to this story; he took what I started with and blended into it an ending that I just couldn’t come up with. I want to publically thank StangStar06 for his input. I have found a new editor, WSV, and he has helped me tremendously to bring me up to date from my last English class in 1961. Even with a college degree, I skipped English due to my service time and courses. So my last English class was some 53 years ago. I needed help and he has been instrumental in getting my stories more readable. And what can I say about Prissy_35503? She has been a godsend to me. She has had her problems in real life and is still available for me as a proofreader. My humble thanks go out to all three people for helping me.

All Alone

I'm back to writing dramas and normal stories for a while. I finished up with the cheating stories however, I do have a collaboration with StangStar06 that I just couldn’t seem to find a finish for. Stang took my main story and came up with a great ending. That is in the works, so look for that one. This story is one I have had in the works for several months. We took a cruise, and I saw some people that were just very depressed so I took that to mean that they had just lost someone close to them and had already planned the cruise. This gave me the impetus to write this story. I thought back to when I was in the service and stationed somewhere on an unaccompanied tour. This brought the feeling of total loneliness that my character was feeling. See I write from my own experiences or those of people I have known over the years. Sometimes I even get kernels of a story from my fans. I will be posting this about every other day till it’s finished.
