Pounding the Keys

I have a story, leading to more stories, that I think is one of the best pieces of erotic writing I've ever done. I referred to this a few posts ago as my NBS (Next Big Story). It is, according to the Microsoft Word document (Office 365 edition - I write in Microsoft Word and make notes in Microsoft OneNote), currently 462 pages/269,769 words long and I'm only working on Chapter 19 of the 26 chapters planned (and I think that's what it's going to turn out to be - the chapters are all very well planned).

As I mention, my muse is a fickle woman (she wasn't very pleased with me calling her the 'b' word). I've been writing chapter 19 for about 2 months now - maybe 3. I know everything that MUST happen here to move the story along - but whenever I open the document and start to type, she starts shooting more new story ideas at me. It's aggravating.

As such, I'm revising my time-table. My NBS is currently scheduled to premier in September, 2015. Before then, I'll need to finish the damn thing (maybe during my upcoming vacation) and hopefully find some brave soul who is willing to wade into the random letters I've been throwing on paper in the hopes that a story will appear. Seriously, I'm not sure some of the letters I've got on this page are actually even words...
