Call me an introvert, but I'm not a natural blogger. So you don't hear from me much. But I thought I'd give you an update on my latest story.

I'm a slow writer so it takes me a while to finish a story. And then I edit it to death which delays it's posting even more. But I have a new problem. I had eye surgery a couple of weeks ago and my eyesight isn't what it was. I have a hard time seeing close, which includes my computer monitor. So using the computer is a struggle, and therefore writing is a struggle. Hopefully it's due to the healing and it won't last.

Now for the story update. I'm well into Chapter 9 of the story. I was really going good today when my eyes got blurry so I had to stop. That's when I thought of providing this update -- which, believe me, is not easy to type with my blurry vision. It's a good thing the browser allows for the ctl/+ to make it bigger. And that I'm a touch typist.

I don't know if Chapter 9 will be the last chapter or not. I've been told in the past that I rush endings. I do. And I try not to.

Once I finish the story, I re-read it and make appropriate changes. Depending on the number of changes, I may do that again and again. Then when I'm satisfied, I do a final edit on each chapter before posting it. Hopefully I'll get to that stage soon.

While I have your attention, I want to discuss something. I will be coding this story as "much sex." But it is not a stroke story. There's a plot which means there's plenty of non-sex as well. Some people don't understand that. They think "much sex" is the same as "stroke."

Okay, time to rest my eyes and then get back to writing.
