I'm halfway through chapter two of the sequel to 'Kat's Christmas', and it's going slowly. The trouble is I've got tickles of ideas for a couple of other stories. That's what happened with Beauty, Christmas with Kat, and Anitra. I'm sure I'd get them all finished - eventually - but I've had a Serendipity story started for a couple of years now without completing chapter one! Which is to say, I expect I'll post SOMETHING in due course; I just can't promise it'll be 'Kat and Carole'. It's a conflict of my OCD (need to finish one thing before starting another) with imagination and general disorganisation. Talk about confused...
Readers will remember Sally and Jerry of 'Delilah'. There were suggestions that a sequel would be welcome; it's in the posting queue.
A new story, begun before Christmas and interrupted by Christmas with Kat and Beauty, is in the posting queue. This is a sailing story with a twist. Hope you enjoy it!
Forty years or more ago - I don't remember exactly - I was in a city-centre pub, on my own, drinking a pint of beer. My wife was out of town for some reason. Anyway, I was approached by a woman a little older than myself, quite attractive, who propositioned me. It was quite a subtle thing, at first anyway, and I was a bit innocent (yes, I really was, once). Feeling a bit lonely, and sorry for her too, I gave her some money to spend time with me. No, we didn't have sex. Just chatted. But the memory surfaced recently and inspired the short story 'Beauty' which I will be posting when Jerry and Peter have had their way with it.
The story bears little resemblance to what happened then, other than the initial encounter, but if I hadn't been married, who knows? It was a little tempting.
