Much of this note is no longer accurate...sorry

Hi. I submitted a repost of "Make-a-wish", just to fix a couple small errors in grammar. Nothing significant. There are about 4 Evil Stacy stories all told, I'll post the others at odd, inconvenient times. Some people apparently don't really see the evil in her. I got an email asking me, "Why do you call her Evil Stacy?" and I blame it on my sheltered life.

On another note: Babymaker

That story got reviewed and I had a chance to email the reviewer and express my thoughts on it. I thought I'd share a little here. There used to be a blog note about "Babymaker" but I guess I deleted it or it went camping. There needs to be one.

I share the disappointment of everyone who would like to see the story continue. I'd like to see it continue. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done for a variety of reasons. I had a choice of either pulling the story or marking it "complete" and it's fairly obvious what I chose to do. I hate wasting words and my theory is that it's better to get something than nothing, especially when it's basically free. I wasn't paid to write it, nobody's offered me ten bucks to finish it, so my obligation is largely moral and therefore the penalty for not fulfilling it is a guilty conscience and ten extra minutes in Hell.

I would do almost anything to stay out of Hell, by the way, including writing 8 more chapters of Babymaker. This is my way of saying, I can't do it. I wish I could, but I can't and so we must appreciate what is there, feeling disappointed at what is not, and move on to something better. There's a lot of better in the world, believe me!

and that leads me to the etc. part of this post. I'm sitting in a hospital cafeteria, longing for food, but I can only eat ice chips. I can have all the ice chips I want. But that's all I can have because they're going to do bad things to me tomorrow. I wish they wouldn't, but it's for my own good. I'm paying for it too, which is totally beyond me. Like asking the Salem witches to pay for the firewood.

So, I queued up the last 2 chapters of Daddy's Little Whore, and submitted a new story, which is not really a story, but it's fun - called "Filling in for Mom" I think, the original title was "Adventures of a Nice Girl" and, um...I hope you all have a Happy Halloween.
