It's always hard to judge what to write next, unless of course I am totally on a roll, as recently happened with the last two chapters of Niki and Max.
Since there seems to be limited feedback - just the nature of things I guess, the closest I can get to is looking at how many of each story are in people's library. Based on that, it looks like Robin is way more popular than I thought, though, there are passionate Max fans, and one very ardent fan of the Games adventures -- and yet another begging to find out more about Bree and Katie.
My point - barring some sort of voting being added to this, I will primarily - write what is inspiring me, or, if ambivalent, what I am getting the most feedback/library pics for.
Enjoy. Note, I have varied interests, completely new type of story posted today - Mystique.
I tend to have a lot of internal dialogue/thoughts for my characters, and I've played around with various ways to 'show' that, italicizing thoughts, putting 'blah blah blah' Niki thought, etc...and never really liked any of it -- so, the current mishmash of plot, description, speaking, and internal thought is what seems to work. Though, if someone has a good idea on how better to dilineate stream of consciousness thoughts from the rest, I would not mind hearing about it, or seeing an example.
Since the feedback I've gotten (thank you by the way) has been mostly positive, I assume everyone 'gets' it...but, perhaps the ones who hate the story either don't like that style...or the substance - I may not have had enough warning in the synopsis (? another stray thought).
Anyhow, really glad folks are enjoying, I love to hear from you, even short one liners like _ keep going...OMG more..and Niki did WHA??"
Those who saw the original story, Niki's Strange Day, that is now Chapter 6 of Niki's Descent.
Closing chapter(s) of Niki's Descent will be up soon, and another Story started - further adventures of Niki and Max.
Do have other stories working on that are not connected, stay tuned.
Reposting in order, as it was not easy to switch back and forth between two time lines. The previous 'Niki's Strange Day" will return once we reach that point in time...
Having been telling/sharing stories for a while, and decided to finally try and make something out of them. Very rough at the moment, I expect to improve the flow over time.
Most of my ideas/stories explode out of some back and forth story writing, so there may be some oddities that are still in there when dealing with multiple points of view interspersed in one plot....though it appears to make sense to me for a first pass.
