Not good news. It seems the aliens in 'The Loser' are trying to take over the story.
I am still having problems getting any ideas down on what to do with Andy and the gals. I have a basic theme I keep working on about the native girls, but every attempt at writing it out so far has ended up focusing on the aliens. So far I have restarted chapter 26 from scratch four times. The current iteration has eight paragraphs so far.
In other news, I am having pretty good success with my new story. I have 3 chapters completed and a good portion of a fourth. Andy's aliens have tried to hijack the story but I have managed to keep them out. This new story is not supposed to be sci-fi!
Speaking of connecting stories, I had a comment suggesting I make my second story a prologue to an 'Andy's World' tie in by having the aliens rescue him as well. I didn't do that because the story was an outlet for me. I may do a re-write with a different ending or add another chapter to change the outcome.
In the meantime, I am on a liquid diet this week in anticipation of some interior photographs being taken since I have passed the half-century mark. I'm sure many will understand the reference and laugh. I must say that I am not looking forward to the experience.
