Sliding into winter...

Lots of rain down here on the Gulf Coast. That means it's a good time to write.

I appreciate all the notes you folks have been sending me. Makes me want to write even more.

It's very heartening to be keeping three stories going and finding that all three are in the "Top Twenty downloads".

Keep the good thoughts going. My dear little muse, Dorable, has been very accommodating and playful. I want her to stay that way.

A few years ago when I started writing these stories, somebody contacted me and had me ghost-write three short stories. I've lost the email address on one computer update or another.

I'd like to know how those stories worked out for you, and where they might have been posted.

Brain farts

Hazard of getting old. Every now and then one will show up as an error in one of my stories. I made a couple of doozies in Community Too and had it gracefully pointed out to me by you guys. Thanks for reading that closely and tanks for taking time to send me a note so I can get stuff right.

Writing stuff

Chapter 49 of Community Two got me an avalanche of comments due to the size of the disruption to the happy group.

Of course you have to realize that BEFORE that little earthquake, I'd gotten some comments that things in that story were getting just a bit too saccharine.

To all of you who wrote me to express yourselves, I can say "Thanks!" It shows you're paying attention. That most of you also expressed dismay at our Nikki's situation, that tells me that you're into the story and you care about the characters. That's good. I wanted my people to be engaging. It appears that to many of you I have succeeded.

And hang on... more to follow.

Since it's been almost a month

I surmise that this is a good time to post a note to my readers.

Lots of out of town work has been keeping me on the road and off the computer. My muse is flighty when I'm at home. When we're on the road, the little thing's almost invisible.

She seems to be more active as the weather cools, and we're getting ready to get our first dip into the fifties this weekend.

I would be remiss if I did not say that the ideas that some of you have sent me are finding their way into one story line or another. Community Too gets the most suggestions. I think many readers have pictures of the main characters in that story fixed in their mind's eye, as do I. It's pretty easy for me to think 'What would Cindy do' and get a bit of story. All I can say is 'Thanks'!
