A number of things have happened this weekend.
General Patraeus, the head of the CIA has resigned over the revelation that he and his biographer were having an affair.
I taped a story from television called "Broken Code, Broken Genius." The story is about Alan Turing, who was a mathematical genius, who at the age of about 30, led the effort to break the code of Enigma Machine. People have said that if not for that, the assault on Normanday could never have taken place. Their effort was entirely secret and they were sworn to secrecy after the war. He was never recognized for his achievements.
Alan Turing was Gay. He went on to write many other important papers of his work with computers which started right after the war, and his investigating of why animals are colored as they are.
When the police found out he was gay, he was given the choice of going to prison or take estrogen therapy, which removed his male testestrone.
The man lived the rest of his life in torment and obscurity until he committed suicide at the age of forty one.
The point of this story is how will we be judged? No matter what else we do with our lives; no matter how successful we are in our own community; our families; no matter what other contributions we make, we are probably judged by our least acceptable behavior.
This writing of erotic or pornographic stories is very unacceptable in our society. The author of "Many Shades of Grey" will make millions, but the people who fill the pages of Storiesonline.com or Literotica.com would be judged harshly by our families and church members if they knew.
I have never been curious about homosexuality or had anything to do with it, but it seems so tragic that a man of Alan Touring's background, who had so much to contribute to the world was wasted.
General Patraeus has resigned in disgrace. His biographer, on the other hand, stands to make millions of dollars for an otherwise obscure book. In fact, she will probably have movie rights to the story and have several other fiction books to write.
Two people; partners in the same act, and one will be rich the other a disgrace. Who was actually the greater contributor to our society?
It's raining outside, so I cannot do any yardwork, work on my car or much else. These are the things I wonder about when it rains, snows, or is too inhospitable to go out.
I hope you have a nice day.
I guess I really blew it this time. Like many others, I had been following the story of the Ambassador to Benghazi getting killed.
A bunch of us get together to watch the debates. I was going over to watch the third debate, and decided to write about Benghazi. I finished the story just before I went to the debate and posted it.
When I got home, there were a bunch of nasty emails from people asking me to remove the story. I am sorry it upset so many people.
I have seen the documentaries. My description of the compound is nothing like the real place. There were no women in the compound. My story does not say the Ambassador was killed.
My intention at the beginning was for the heroine to eventually become the Ambassador because of what she did. Somehow, I either ran out of time, or just couldn't steer the story that way by the time I decided to post it.
I'm sorry for offending people because of the reference to Benghazi. I should have used the Biden Compound in Nantucket.
I know I am not that good a writer. I have a limited range of fantasy subjects. My delima is about whether to add different themes and whether to change the way I write.
We all have different experiences and abilities. I am not sure how much I should change to get higher scores, which i would like; or just keep writing.
For now, I am just going to keep writing. For now, it seems that the different styles give the readers a definite choice. I am disappointed with my scores. I feel I might get better scores if I changed my fantasy to more romantic subjects. On the other hand, there are many writers on Storiesonline.com who are excellent at that.
I am going to continue blindly on my present path. If any readers have suggestions on how to make my stories better, I am eager to hear their ideas and comments.
I started this one with only a title. I just kept typing without a plot in mind.
I am so sorry to everybody for the length. I have been trying to keep them to half that length, but I kept putting too many circumstances into it.
I never meant for the daughter to part of the story; just incentive for the mother to be kept in line.
I added the coersion by the husband for a reason to leave him. I could have made it much shorter.
There may be some mis-understanding on the character names that I use.
There is one story, "Jenny's Ordeal," which is about 55 chapters and over 100,000 words long. It is one long story with the same continuous characters.
Many of the other stories still use the name "Jenny" for the heroine, "Joe" for the husband, and "Stephanie" as the daughter. These are all stand-alone stories. I am just too lazy to come up with different names. I use "Jenny" because I can break up the references to her as Jenny, she, Jenn, Jennifer, or Miss Jenny.
It seems like less keystrokes to use names with three letters, rather than Rachael, Elizabeth, Charlotte, etc.
I also use the same discriptions for the mother and daughter becaue these seem to be my fantasy for dress and physical conformation.
