On "The Eleventh Percent"

I've also been getting mixed reviews for this story. They're 50/50 at the moment. I have people telling me it's an interesting premise and can't wait to see what I do with it. Then I have another group who are just confused.

I got the idea one night right before I went to sleep. I've only had 2 lucid dreams in my entire life. And both ended too soon. I thought it would be cool if I could talk to someone in my dream who turns out to be my subconscious. What would they say to me? Would they know stuff I didn't know? What would they look like? Would it be like the movie Inception?

This idea kept bothering me for several days. It wasn't until after I wrote the first chapter for "Ssshotguneagle" did I say "Screw it. I'm writing it."

I have so many ideas where I want this story to go. I'm really excited about it. I have a great outline for this story which I hope comes out the way I want it to. This story will end one day, but not any time soon. That's okay though because I actually plan on writing a sequel after I'm done with this one. And I'm actually even MORE excited to write that one!

I hope this gives you a good idea how dedicated I am to writing this story. I'm doing this mostly for me, but I'm always happy to hear from readers whether they liked it or not. So thanks again to those have read it. To those who actually liked it, I hope you also like what I do with it.
