Finally! Some good news!!!

Hey all.

Sorry about the long time between chapters but for some reason this one was not working for me and I couldn't put my finger on why. So I had to leave it alone for a while and take a look at it later. That worked a good couple of weeks later.

So I'll let you know I have just sent the latest chapter off for first edits and when they go through all then I'll release. But the other bit of good news was since I had time to kill and needed to let that part of the story marinate until ready, I got started on the next chapter which goes to the other segment of the story. I should be able to get this chapter out much quicker than this last one. Believe me, I hate not getting it out to you guys almost as much as you guys wanna read it.

Some like that I have split the story this way and others wish I would either get rid of the split or write two different books. I seriously gave some thought to that idea but in the end decided to leave it like it is and just continue on the path I started.

Okay, so that's it. A new chapter for "Mayhem in a Pill" should be coming up within a week or week in a half. Depends on editors and since I can't write very well and those guys do an amazing job making my prose sound... prosey.

Tee Hee.

An update... Ugh.

Sorry about the lack of communication from my end but I hit a little writers block because I had written down what I wanted to do in this chapter and then the wife decided my "home office" needed to be cleaned while I was out buying groceries.

Every loose piece of paper on the desk was disposed of and on top of that the garbage collectors were also out and about while I was at the store. Ugh.

So I had to try and remember something I had written down on that piece of paper months ago so I would not forget. Ugh.

So I had to write the chapter without my cheat sheet. I got three-fourths of the way through and all excited I would be able to send the chapter to the editors a couple of weeks ago when guess what. A long forgotten set of neurons raised their hand from the back of the class and said "Hey, that's not how the chapter was supposed to go. It's supposed to go like this." So I had to restart. Ugh.

So long story short (too late) I am in the process of rewriting the chapter using the original version I wanted to use all along. It takes time but the words are flowing much easier and the MILF porn has been tame as of late so no need of diversions there.

Anywho. Um. Chapter is coming. I have not abandoned it. My plan (I know. I know) is to continue this story through this freshman year of high school and through whatever fun hijinks I can think of for the formerly fat escapee. Then call it book one.

I have a couple of other ideas for stories I'm really itching to get into but I can not walk and chew gum at the same time so one story at a time and my lackadaisical ass refuses to try.

Thanks again for your support. (I feel like that Bartles and Jaymes wine cooler commercial. Remember those!)

"I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, it would explode! I think it was called "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

~ Homer Simpson

Just wanted to point out "The Simpsons" TV show reached a milestone last night as the longest running scripted show in history surpassing "Gunsmoke."

I concur... Read Jay Cantrell's blog.

Like the title says, read Jay Cantrell's amazing blog post.

It is amazingly well written and once again shows that writer's like myself are basically flinging poo against glass when visitors get on our nerves.

Damn Jay, amazing and thanks for showing how mediocre of a writer I truly am. But then again, now I know what to shoot for.

Draft time bitches!!!!!!!

Guess what kiddies! The last chapter of Mayhem just went over 10,000 downloads since I put it up.

So of course that means the next chapter should be ready soon. Alas, this is not so. While I have been working on the next chapter, it is no where yet ready for anyone else to see it. So it will probably be a couple more weeks for an update since the NFL Draft is next week and yours truly watches from gavel up to gavel down and when it is over I compare my list to the official one to see how far off I was. Not to tweet my own horn but I'm not that far off.

Alas, I thought I was going to be there in person, especially since the draft is in Dallas and that's about a 3-4 hour drive from my front door. But the best laid plans... yadda yadda yadda.

But I thank everyone who has been reading and I will be continuing to write the next chapters of Mayhem in a Pill. I've even started working on a cover for the story and since in another life I was a graphic designer, it helps to flex a muscle I have not used in a while. It's fun but no where ready to be premiered.

Okay, thanks again and I am working on the story.
