After completing Retirement here at Chapter 12, I continued a different version of the same story on ASSTR... until this week. The story there is not complete as of Chapter 18. However it is unclear if it will ever be completed. The author's access portal to the ASSTR site has been down since Monday morning. So while some of my work is posted there, I have no way to access the content or the add any content. Unless author access site is enabled, the site will become a time capsule. Just were I can post my future work is now a real question.
As I noted before, I wrote one version for SOL to conform to the rules here and another chapter for posting elsewhere. To distinguish the two, this version has a name change in the Index.
I am not sure what further projects will fit the confines of this site. Where I can post here I will, but I can't write for a site. If the finished product meets the criteria here, great. If not, so it goes.
I do find it odd that violence of all types is allowed but some sex is not. Fascinating.
Putting my stories to audio, which I have been doing, as a beta pilot project has allowed me to find errors I had not caught before, and clean up the flow of dialog. I have also re-edited how I designate Philippine Pesos and in this story remove some of the clumsiness of my written dialog. Whether that last thing will work for other stories is a matter for each story. I wonder if there is an interest in my stories in audio format.
I have just submitted a new chapter for Retirement. There will be two more chapters post in January here on SOL. At which point the SOL version of the story will end in Chapter 12. A different version of chapter 12 will be posted elsewhere and the story will continue for at last two more chapters beyond that.
I tried something different. I listened Jake's Journal: close to home as an audio-book with my Bose headphones and found many things I wanted to change. This includes errors, style, and content. I'm not saying it's perfect yet, but hopefully I have improved what was there. These are no new surprises, but at least many of the defects are vanquished.
