The good news is that I have a new PC and a new, decent word processing program. (Open Office) It beats the hell out of trying to write using MS Wordpad on a laptop, which is where the first four chapters of "The Beginning" were created.
The bad news is that my Muse has not been poking me very hard to continue with the story. Instead, I have been generating story outlines, synopsis and sample chapters for a half-dozen or so other stories. None of them are about erotic enemas however, so I do not know how my current readers would respond to them. The new stories are in the Adventure, Magic & Sci-fi genres with minimal to no sex.
My Muse is a lazy-ass, and does not poke me too hard to write as often as I should. I can't say when I'll have anything new to post, but things are in the works!
Ch. 4 & 5 is floating around in my head along with a couple of ideas for other stories. I've got some ongoing health issues. Hopefully, a Dr. visit next week will improve matters and I will soon be back to posting new chapters.
Chapter three has been submitted to the moderator for review and posting. At this point in the story Cassie is pretty much out of the picture. She may make brief appearances later. I never intended Cassie to play a major part, and never anything sexual or erotic, but only serve as a way of getting Jim and Susan together. Chapter 4 should heat up a bit.
Cassie's big sister, Kelley, may get involved when she's older - if the story is still going and I can segue two years into the future to Kelley's 14th birthday. I'm beginning to suspect what other authors are talking about when they say characters and stories take on a life of their own. :-D
I've watched with very strong interest that, as my download count slowly rises, (I know it is a special interest story and I am an unknown.) My initial score of 8.88 has slowly decreased and is now just above 8.00. OTOH, all of the feedback so far has been very positive. I want to write the best stories I can, so I would like to ask my readers to tell me what I can do to improve. I've had anonymous emails blocked, but I'll turn it off for a while. Perhaps those with negative things to say have wished to remain anonymous.
Thanks to everyone who read and voted on my first story. I've also received some very encouraging emails, so I guess I need to get my butt in gear and crank out a couple more chapters. :-)
I have a few more stories banging around in my head. The subjects vary from the serious to the silly, scifi to high fantasy, and everything in between. You will not find many, if any, future stories from me in the western or mystery genre. Nor will you see the BDSM tag. That's just not my thing. I doubt that I will write many stories with enemas as the main subject. It's too narrow a genre and self-limiting in it's appeal. I want to reach a wider audience.
Thanks again for reading. Expect another chapter or two next week.
