I'm Still Here...

A little ragged around the edges, mind you. I've been averaging 700 miles a week at work, I'm schedule for knee surgery next week. - that sort of thing.

But I'm still writing. There's a chapter of Community on the burner right now. Just as a teaser, the gang is getting a visit from Jo and Stoney, and I don't know, but perhaps Kara might have something up her shy but developing sleeve.

And to all of you who responded to the recent chapter of Road Rash, thanks! You guys keep me going.

Now... There's this guy doing a field inspection of a remote site in South Texas. When he's back in his truck and on the road, he finds out he's picked up a passenger...

It's been a while

I guess I need to put things on the table here.

Life intrudes. Last week was ONLY 500 road miles and three days out of town. I've been doing 800 or better. Eats into the writing, you know. sometimes the muse tickles me when I'm out of town, sometimes not, just like at home.

I just sent a chapter of Kimberly off to the editor and started on a chapter of Road Rash. gotta do something.

My friend across the ocean seems to have dropped out again. Domestic issues can be a bummer. I was looking forward to integrating his story into mine, but I may just have to pull up short there and do a different angle instead.

A lot of you seem to like Terri in Community. I like her, too. She brings a different view to my favorite bunch of characters. Be assured you'll see plenty of her in there. I'm bringing Jo and Stoney (from Melodic Redemption) back for a visit to the Community, too.

As always, comments and suggestions are much appreciated.

Here's proof that I am indeed still alive and writing: a chapter of Road Rash.

To the reader who took me to task because I had codes in the story info that related to sexual activity and he'd read five chapters of indecision and chastity, I hope this makes you feel like there's some erotic content there.

To the readers who might not relate to our Jenn in this story, she's a lot like a girl I knew, terribly smart, terribly quirky, prone to analyzing everything that went on between us. Yeah, Sweetie! You're Jenn!

Still Alive

Lots of road work of late, but that's hardly something to hide behind. I mean, I COULD write in the hotel room, you know. I did quite a lot of that.

Truth is, i have 'muse' problems again. I sort of lost it on Community so I bounced half a chapter back to the other guy for some ideas. I'm waiting on those.

In the meantime, Road Rash gets a chapter. It's at the editors right now and should be posted soon. turns out that Jenn is a bit quirky, but then, that's just what Chuck needs. They get to find out how MUCH they need, at least in Round 1 and Round 2.

I also took a look at dear sweet Kimberly. That's open on the desktop right now.

I haven't given up writing. I told you guys long ago that I sort of fall in love with my girls and I enjoy giving them life.

Hang in there with me and let's see where they go.

I just sent a chapter of Road Rash to the editor.

Life has intruded majorly of late. Between the summer doldrums and some really interesting things at work, writing sort of slid off the plate. it's back now.

I've started the next chapter of Community so we can see what happens when Duncs and Amy mesh up with the rest of the gang.

As an aside, a couple of years ago I ghost-wrote three stories for a reader. I'd sure like to see where they're published.
