Miscellaneous Ramblings

I'd like to start off by congratulating all the winners of the Clitorides Awards. I hope to be among your number one day.

I would like to say that I am making great progress with additional chapters of 'The Loser', but that would be a lie. I have been lucky to get a paragraph every two or three days. Occasionally, the juices will start pumping and I will get several paragraphs done, but then RL interferes and by the time I get back to writing, I've lost the flow.

One of the things I have been doing when I get blocked is to work on a different story. I am currently up to seven chapters with my second writing attempt but with the experience from 'The Loser', I have decided not to post any of it until it is completed. I originally planned for 10 chapters, but it looks like I may run a bit long. I occasionally hit a block on this story as well, which leads me to...

My third 'in progress' story is based on a suggestion that my "depressing Christmas story" could be used as a way to bring someone else into Andy's Universe. While I appreciate the idea and am working on a pseudo-sequel using the same MC, I plan for this story to be a stand-alone of about 5 chapters. Besides, there are already plenty of people in Andy's world.

I have other ideas floating around, but I think I need to get some of the WIPs done first. I would hate to for my stories to become yellow zebras.
