Hark, What light through yonder window breaks?

It was dark outside and I was preparing to enjoy my new window air conditioner that forced me to pull out the winter blanket for the bed. (I'll use the crappy toilet paper to make sure the air runs at full blast in my house.) Sue me. I'm fat and we smell when we sweat. I don't wanna smell. I'd rather see my breath while watching the local news gal point out that the temps are hitting over 100 in my hometown. (I do feel for all of you who have even hotter temps but I'm going with what causes me to sweat.)

Now. Why was I blogging? Oh yeah.

The next chapter is with the first editor. I'll get that back and go over the suggested corrections and then send it along to the other editor. Then I get to go through the whole circus once again. Then I post.

I also wanted to let those score and a half of fans of my story know they may want to reread Chapters 22 and 23 just to get reacquainted with that side of the story. And the new chapter will come either this weekend or beginning of next week. It all depends on the editors.

In the meantime, I will begin working on Chapter 27 so the next chapter won't take so damn long. I know I am letting some people down by not posting the chapters quicker but my procrastination is a strong and powerful enemy. And Netflix does have some cool ass shows.

Believe me I'm trying...

I'm without words... Not good for a writer.

Mayhem in a Pill just topped 300,000 downloads.

My swelling head cannot walk through the halls of my humble home without turning sideways. But in all truthfulness... I was pretty close to having to do that already. Tee Hee.

But sincerely, thank you all very much now let's double that number as quick as possible. And yes, I'll be sending the next chapter to the editors later this week. Thanks to everyone for reading a story that has been flying around my imagination for years.


Bluto... Part Deux

Okay. Good and Bad News.

Holy Hell, they certainly build these freakin' HP laptops to make them unbelievably difficult to open and get to the damn HD!

But success!

And then I hooked it into the original machine and... YES!!!!!

Okay, so I got the files for Mayhem in a Pill and I will start up on those later tonight and then I can send it off to the editors and hopefully get the next chapter out to ya and then I can start procrastinating all over again.

Oh, also I was even able to save the porn and pirated movies. So umm, woo hoo!

I use two laptops. I've talked about the table I use everyday but I didn't talk about the two laptops. I write on one and backup on the other. I guess I am being punished for drinking water rather then my normal Shiner.

Yes, I spilled the glass of water onto the laptop with the non-backed up version of chapter 26 of Mayhem in a Pill. Each chapter is normally 12-15 pages in OpenOffice. I was on page 8 and the last bit of the chapter was ready to go just needed the conversations written. In other words I lost Chapter 26 when the glass spilled. The laptop won't turn back on. Just black. I was able to remove the battery then place it upside down on a dry towel and I dried up whatever liquid I could find. The HD was not wet in the slightest so I am going to leave them out overnight and hope for the best tomorrow afternoon when I have some more time for writing.

I even used a hair dryer to blow into the laptop and make sure everything is dried. Hopefully the liquid did not fall into the HD and the insides just needed to dry out. But if worse comes to worse, I'll have to restart writing the Chapter from memory because the in depth outline was also on that computer.

Ugh. Let's hope it is better tomorrow.

Edit: Ah, crap, I was just reminded about the porn! Oh for the love of everything holy, don't forget about the porn!!!

New Feedback System on SOL

SOL is changing its feedback system. As of June 3rd, 2017 the new feedback system will go into effect.

The new system is an internal messaging system. Your feedback messages to me and other authors will be available on-site. The replies I send back will be available to you on-site.

This means we will all need to access the SOL website to read the internal messages.

The Webmaster will be providing details of the new system.

For those of you who wish to contact me directly by email, my email address is I will respond via email.

The idea seems fun and I guess we will call for the removal of Laz's head or we will be kissing his feet. I have a feeling we may need to go heavy on the lip balm.

But I'll be sharpening my axe just in case.

P.S. I know I am late on the next chapter but I am working on it. I will give this hint though... read up on the adventure's of Fat Tim. That way you will have an idea of where we are in his story. I know I had to.
