Nail 'im early and avoid the rush!

Me, I'm confused. I get a million comments about 'break the mold - your guys are too nice' and so I do the first chapter of the new story with a 'cheating' tag and now the OTHER side comes out.

It's a tag. (That's a teaser)

The guy's horny. The girl's horny. Tab A and Slot B, tinted by 'eatin' ain't cheatin'.

And nobody's actually worked on anybody else's sticky bits.

So, there remains the question: Can Oyster write a story about a woman who cheats? (Don't forget Brenda in the archives) Or does he cave in to his own sense of decency?

Inquiring minds might want to pay attention.

(And a chapter of Community is in progress)

Trudging Through the Doldrums

January is not a good time in Real Life (TM). At work we cut loose all the 2015 projects, so it's up to my eyeballs in paperwork.

Back's acting up. Doctor's opinion is that it's mostly related to geography - my back's too far from my front.

In spite of external influences, I managed to eke out the opening chapter of a new story. It's at the editor's now. I won't give much away here. Suffice to say that I'm trying to do a 'less nice' guy for a protagonist. Let's see how long I can keep it up.

Dunno how I did it, but I did it. Posted Chapter 56 of Community twice. I have just uploaded the Correct Chapter 55, featuring Cindy as narrator.

I'm working on the opening chapter of a new story. Trying to do something a little different. I don't know if I can make it work. It's a stretch for a guy who hasn't written fiction per assignment since 1968.

I'm NOT doing it!

Several of you have written me in various levels of panic since I've terminated a few stories.

I have NO plans to end Community at this time. First, I've found myself enraptured with some of my characters. I'm in love with Cindy, fascinated by Terri, tickled by Nikki... You get the picture.

There's a chapter of that story at the editors right now, so we will see what sort of corners I can paint myself into and out of.

Bye-bye, Jan!

Just sent the final chapter of Jan off the the editor. I should have it back and posted in a two or three days.

This is YOUR fault. Jan was almost parallel to Kimberly, and I honestly just put the story on the back burner and forgot it while I worked on other stories. Several of you readers prodded me to finish it, so I did.

I am tapping out the opening chapter to a new one now. I'm trying to break away from the formula. Really! I am! It's difficult, though. I started this journey because I tired of the DD tits and ten inch dicks and amorality and drugs in so many stories.

I found a few authors (Thanks! TedBiker!) who match my desires, but by the time I found them, I was writing my own.

This next one, well, let's just see how it turns out, okay? And remember - I tried...
