A new story will be available on Tuesday.
"Kim's Camping Trip" is a 14k word story in the same vein as "Amy's Nude Day Fun." It is a stand-alone story written for a theme contest ("Summer Activities") on another site. Hopefully it will help tide everyone over while waiting for updates of either "New Neighbor" or "Rose Tattoo."
Chapter 107 has been submitted and should be available soon
Chapter 108 should be available in another week
As of 8/18, I've reached the 150k word point (The 150,000th word was 'cock.' I swear I'm not making this up.)
I'm guessing that I'm in the last 5-10k words to the finish line. We've made it guys!
By popular demand, I have re-begun work on Rose Tattoo. I have only just started back reading over the beginning, since this was written over a year ago now, and it will still be a little bit (i.e., probably a couple of months) before more new material is ready to present, BUT all you patient fans can finally look forward to the continuation. Despite the small sample submitted, Rose Tattoo has resulted in more feedback than any of my other stories.
Update 6/19: The first 8 chapters have been gone back over and I just wrote the first 300 new words in over a year. Woowoo!
Just a story update on where things stand:
OWWH4 is still in progress, sits at around 137k words written and I'm guessing about another 30k before we reach the end. The end is in sight now. Kinda.
I've got 21k written ahead of what has been published to date which is both (a) a drop in the bucket for this story and (b) the equivalent length of part 2 or 3.
Response for Rose Tattoo has been quite positive. As mentioned in another blog post, it is being moved to the back burner temporarily until I finish OWWH4. I have somewhere around 12k words posted already and about 10k or so written, but most of that isn't ready for prime time. I hate put it on hold after posting what I have already, but I can't maintain two stories simultaneously. Unfortunately, I am actually expected to do work occasionally. So, thank you, readers, for being patient.
Any questions, comments, or complaints? Feel free to drop a line.
For any hardcore Heather fans:
I have a part written which was the original Part 4 but now would be, like, part 3.5 I guess.
It is a Heather/Cara/Jess/Aaron story. It is shorter than the others at only 12k-ish words and I removed it from circulation mostly cuz I wasn't totally happy with how it flowed. It isn't bad, I don't think, but didn't live up to the other parts and parts of it felt forced. Also, I opted to recycle some of the material in Rose Tattoo (though that stuff hasn't been published in Rose Tattoo yet. Spoiler alert? I dunno.)
I don't have the ambition to rewrite it now but I also don't want to publish it along side the other parts on SOL for the reasons mentioned. But, it still is a complete story that I put the time into and people that feel gyped by Heather's lack of presence in OWWH4 may appreciate it. SO, after all that, if you want to read it, send me a message either VIA email at firstname.lastname@example.org or VIA the message function on SOL and I'll send a link to it. Only catch: since I don't really want it published (at least not yet), I ask that it be kept for personal reading only.
