"Community" - Read Chapter EIGHT

Don't know why the site said Chapter 3 was posted.

There is a NEW Chapter 8.

The volume of email I've gotten advising me of the error tells me that a lot of people are still interested.

Thanks

"Community" readers, rejoice!

While going through my archives with my editor, we discovered that I omitted a chapter between chapters 7 & 8. I just submitted it and it should post in a short time, in the proper place.

Does it harbor major revelations that change the timbre of the story? No. Absolutely not. It gives some insights into Cindy and Tina and Terri, and if you're fans of those girls, then you're hungry for anything you can get about them.

I know I am.

Six and ten...

One thing that this recent spate of creativity has done is move my two active stories, Community Too and Mi Vida into the top ten of the 'Serial Downloads' list.

I am tickled!

And I just put six hundred miles on the company car in the past two days, and Dorable, my strange little muse, has been whispering in my ear again.

Dorable and the air conditioner

Dorable, my impish muse, has been very happy of late. She likes long drives through the countryside. Last week I treated her to 1300 miles, this week she'll get nine hundred, next week we'll do thirteen hundred together.

She likes air conditioning. It's summer on the Gulf Coast, high heat, high humidity and low ambition to go outside means that I hang around indoors and she whispers into my ear the ideas she came up with watching the farms and forests sliding past my car window.

All that means is that chapters of stories show up more often, which makes YOU happy, and me too, because I write a lot of this just to see what happens next.

You dear readers give me a lot of good ideas, too. Those of you know when they're incorporated.

Sooo, although it may be the summer doldrums, the stories go on.

Doldrums

Summer down here on the Louisiana Gulf Coast, at least for me, is a series of short dashes from one air-conditioned haven to the next. We've had triple digit heat indices for weeks as mid ninety temperatures combine with high humidities.

Means I stay indoors. Some of that is spent writing, of course. I continue to get positive comments on my stories, and I keep going, because, like you, I want to see what happens next. As I've said before, I have only the vaguest of ideas of where I'm going, rolling down a broad avenue within which I am comfortable operating.

Many of you have written me about how YOU think my characters are thinking and acting, and you know that I've used some of those ideas in the story, making them part YOUR story, also, and I love it.

Take care, be cool, stay safe!
