An overdue update for "All A-Twitter."

I saw the dreaded yellow highlight on my incomplete story. That made me sit down and finish a chapter. I've just submitted Chapter 4 of the story for posting. I hope you enjoy it.

I realize I'm way behind on "Band Geek Diary" as well, but I may be a while on that yet. My muse has been distracting me with other tidbits of prose, and poor John and Katie (and Katie's mom, Becky) have been forced to wait while I plunk at these other stories.

Thank you all for your patience.

An interesting 24 hours, more or less

"Love Has No Pride" has been up for almost 24 hours now and the stats are interesting - even amusing. Over 1,200 downloads and around 80 votes since posting. I have stories up with a lot less activity in a year! The score sucks, but that's part of the amusement. A dozen one-bombs, but almost that many sevens, plus it's the first story I've posted to ever get every possible score. Usually the votes are clustered, like all sevens, eights, nines and tens. Obviously I hit different buttons for different people with this one.

No comments on it, though. Hmm. Looks like people are too busy either fapping or vomiting, looking at the scores.

That fickle muse of mine

I wanted to be working on "Band Geek Diary" today. Instead, I'm finishing up a story that my muse shoveled into my head in the wee hours of the morning. It should be posting soon.

It's a do-over story, where our hero gets a chance to go back and correct that one error he's come to regret. Unlike a lot of do-over stories here on SOL, he doesn't travel back with memories of the future that help make him rich. Neither does he fuck an unending string of high school cheerleaders. He's not a football hero or a computer whiz that beats Bill Gates to the money. He's just a guy who realized, too late, who he actually is deep inside and goes back to the pivotal moment where he can make things right.

"Love Has No Pride" is a quick little 1500 words to, I hope, get my brain clear so I can work on the story that so many of you are actually waiting for from me.

Am I a dough-head or what?

I did just polish up the Christmas Day chapter of Band Geek Diary so I could post it. Then I looked and discovered that I had posted that chapter a month ago. *facepalm

Meh. I'm going to post this version as an update since I expanded some parts of it. I think some of you may like it better.

Band Geek Diary for Christmas Day

I'm going through the latest chapter now to be sure everything is clear and legible. It should be posted sometime today.

Thank you all for your patience as I stumble through this story. My flighty little muse has me way ahead on things that won't happen until many chapters later but has been less cooperative on the things that actually happen next in the story. She's also quite adept at getting me to chase her down the path of completely unrelated stories. The good news in that is that a few of the later chapters are actually almost ready, as are a couple of new stories. The not-so-good news is that the next couple of weeks in the timeline of Band Geek Diary are going to be a struggle.

Let me also take the time to remind you that the Band Parents Universe is public. If you have a story you're writing that involves band students, band teachers or parents of band members, please add it to the universe.
