Thanks to everyone who's given me feedback on The Professor's Gambit. For those of you asking about C'est La Vie and why it wasn't finished, that story is currently on hold. As short as The Professor's Gambit is it took me a long time to finish it because I work a great deal with a terrible schedule that is different every week. Because of this it can be hard for me to find time to write and to be able to get in my writing mindset.
Fortunately I feel like I'm getting back into the swing of things. I plan to write another Professor story but I can't give a time for when it will be done. Also, next month is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and I plan to pick up C'est La Vie with that and see if I can't breath some new life into it.
So thank you again everyone and hopefully I'll be able to get you more fun and sexy stories in the near future. I have a lot of other ideas as well so if you see something new posted up, please don't be disappointed that it isn't a sequel to one of the other stories.
Also, if you'd like to contact me with questions or comments you can find me on Twitter @blackhatlee where I am often shouting random, obscene things at people.
So after nearly two months, I'm making my way back to writing and updating. Between the excessive amounts of overtime at work, preparing for a wedding, taking a vacation and then working for and subsequently losing a promotion, I haven't really had time to sit down to do a lot of writing like I was. But C'est La Vie has not been forgotten.
I can't give you a time frame for when the next chapter will be out but it will be before the end of the month. I'm still working a lot of overtime, so my time is sparse but I don't intend to leave the story where it is. So stay tuned!
This chapter took a lot longer than I expected due to work, social obligations and a rough patch of having to bribe/beat my muse. Still, done and done and now I go to work on the forth chapter. Enjoy!
So apologies for not having the next chapter finished by now. I had hoped to have it all done and submitted by Monday...but on my way home from work I stopped to get groceries and found the latest Dresden Files in paperback in the book section. I've been waiting for it for months now and I pretty much put everything else on hold while I devoured the damn thing.
If you know the Dresden Files, I don't need to explain this. If you don't know the Dresden Files, you're a God damned heathen and must convert or remove yourself from my presence.
That being said, the book was fucking fantastic. Jesus what a mind fuck. Now that it's over and done with, I'm going to finish up the last of the next chapter and get it edited and submitted hopefully by tomorrow. So I ask only that you be patient.
Also, many thanks to those of you who have voted and especially to those who have sent me feedback and encouragement. I'm sure this story is not the stroke material some of you are used to but for me it's something of an experiment in my writing and as such it won't be subject to the expectations of readers. I hope you enjoy it but I won't hold it against you if you don't.
Being a writer for many years now, I've done a lot of research into different topics. I've written about more than just erotic fiction and have had to do some non-fiction work as well. It's always impressive the amount of things you end up learning about in the course of your research.
My most recent research project involves learning about high heels for a story I'm preparing to write. I started by asking several female friends of mine about their knowledge of heels and mostly how they wear them and what it feels like. It was educational and I took two main points from the conversations I had:
1) Women are bat shit fucking insane
2) Men do not appreciate the things they do for us
I still have more research to do to get the right feel and tone for the story but I can already tell that this is going to be a very enlightening experience. I've always thought that women in heels are insanely hot, especially when they're wearing garters (that's a whole different topic that I could spin off on). So, at the very least, I won't take a woman for granted if she's wearing to wear heels to look good.
