Update On The Editors — They’ll Be Fine. Probably.

Okay, my first editor had to be institutionalized and was unable to toil on "Winter's Risk". He is currently MIA.

The other two … well, in fairness to them, "Risk" was the longest story yet. One editor is much improved after his daily Ketamine dosage was adjusted. The prospects for the third editor have brightened and his family holds out hope for at least a partial recovery.


Your Long National Nightmare Is Finally Over …

The last chapter - # 16 - of "Winter's Risk" has been written, edited, submitted, and, probably through site-incompetence, posted here.

I realize that many of you Winter-haters wait until a story is complete before unloading on it … well, now's your time. Sharpen those pitchfork tines, simmer the pine tar, rip open those feather pillows.

I only regret that I have but one chapter to give for my story.

You've waited, salivating, runner's spikes in the blocks, butt up, aching for the starting pistol … I've imagined a couple of you boys frothing, but that's poetic license of course. Maybe.

Ready … set … BANG! Voting on "Winter's Risk" is now open. Now's your time to vent, to unleash all that repressed Winter-fury.

I can take it. Probably.


Oh, Beat The Drum Slowly And Play The Fife Lowly …

Better half-staff those flags, boys. A new Winter Jennings story is completed and the first chapter has already slunk its way past the mods.

Sorry, haters. Adding insult to insult, "Winter's Risk" is the longest story yet in this silly little endeavor. Around 80,000 words according to some thing on my thing that mysteriously keeps track of … um, things.

But look at the sunny side - there's more to execrate!


Well, That Figures ...

Several readers have alerted me - all of my Winter Jennings stories have been disappeared from the Clitorides Awards competition. Not that I'm the least bit interested in these types of contests.

So it's only in the interest of justice, that I've notified Interpol, the Yard, RCMP, and seven other international snoops about this blatant miscarriage of … decency.


PS I, personally, don't pay the slightest attention to reader scores. My actions in here are altruistic. Solely in the interests of the common weal.
