Some thoughts about writing what I do

Factoid: Part one of Goethe's Faust was first published in 1806, part two was published in 1832, the year of Goethe's death.

Talk about a long wait!

Sustaining a story like Dee's is hard work, and good writing takes time, so I'm not going to apologize for taking so long.

Nor am I going to apologize for the lack of sex-in-detail in one chapter or another. Dee only has so many openings and so many opportunities, and to come up with new sexual adventures for the girl who has already done almost everything is a real challenge.

Just putting in more of the same-old same-old gets boring. Nor is it just a matter of coming up with some new sexual variation, it is also the challenge of somehow plausibly getting her into a situation where it can take place, while at the same time juggling a half-a-dozen different sub-plots.

It is a real challenge! I like a challenge, but I'm not going to rush things. I hope you understand.
