TME Chapter 12
I didn't exactly intend to wait for 3 weeks with writing a new chapter, but sometimes...

Anyway, I'm working on the new chapter as we speak and I hope it'll be ready soon. It'll be a pretty short chapter, but hopefully it'll get me going again with writing more chapters.

I wrote so much for that story in such a short time, that I sort of burned myself out on it. If you have any suggestions, then feel free to let me know. I have an overall plot in line, but so many details are still very vague, that it's hard to come up with a good short term plot. It'd be a shame to let the story go inactive without finishing it though...

The overal plot line I have in mind is pretty cool, it's just hard to get started again. I still think the story has a lot of potential and it'd be a shame to see that go to waste.

A Teacher and Her Student, a Forbidden Love
I'm very happy with the feedback I got on this story, the story seems more realistic then I thought it'd ended up at. Feel free to send me more feedback though! I love reading what people think of the story and votes only tell you so much.

Several people wished for a more concluding ending, in the Afterword I wrote down three possible endings and I've considered writing a sequal in the future.
I could work out all three alternative endings and even work out alternative ways how Alice experienced her time in jail.

I might work on that sometime in the future and upload it as a separate story, however, right now it has a very low priority and personally I consider the story done as it is. I can understand the need for a happy end, but unfortunately only 2% to 4% of the stories in real life have a somewhat happy ending, where the couple ends up marrying each other.

Being shunned by society, friends and families can have a big impact on any relationship though, so even after they marry and get kids it still doesn't have to end in a happy way...

I didn't exactly intend to write a SOAP, so perhaps it's better to let it rest the way it is. Still, I appreciate feedback on the topic!

New project
Next to TME I also intend to work on a new project, this time it's the SciFi story I mentioned in earlier blogs. I don't know at which point I'm going to publish it though, I could do it like TME and publish it after several chapters are live, or I could keep working on this story in privacy and prevent some of the pitfalls with TME.
