Question about the "Top Rated" on going serials on Home Page.

samis

I was wondering if I missed G Younger's Stupid Boy Saturday's posting so I went to the Top Rated Ongoing Serials listing on the home page and I found that it was not listed, even though it has a high enough score to be listed. So I was wondering what is up with that?

THE END IS NIGH!
(actually, "they think it's all over, it is now" is more appropriate)

I thought another book in the series was in the pipeline.

there is, but it's a long pipe it has to travel down. However, he does have Junior Year part 3 that should be started soon, while I'm waiting to buy his Senior Year due out in the US Summer.

I had forgotten that fact and spent most of the day checking to see when the next chapter would be posted. Don't know if I can survive till May. :-)

Actually, according to his blog, Junior Year III is supposed to start May 5. Can't wait.

Yep. GYounger not posting completely screwed up my Saturday morning. I had nothing else I was interested in being posted either so I had nothing to do.

I mean I was so bored I started working on the next chapter of my story and I haven't yet gotten the next chapter back from the editors yet.

I'm actually starting to get ahead. It is a strange feeling and I'm unfamiliar with it.

The procrastinator in me is screaming at me trying to get my attention. While the writer in me is spitin' out prose. It's very unnerving. And it puts me in a unfamiliar place.

Ugh. What to do?

Maybe I'll get to work reading something from that long list of stories I put on the side that I labeled as "interesting." I think even a few of them have finished.

I bought it some time back,and it's good. Thus I'm waiting on Senior Year which he told me should be out in the US summer.

I typically work on new stories (continuing work begun earlier) while editing as a way of keeping my writing fresh, so my edits don't sound stilted, and so I won't have to get 'back into writing' once the book is completed. But then again, that's because, finishing and editing the entire book before ever posting, the editing process is more intensive than it is otherwise.

I find that if I spend too long reviewing edits and wrestling with nitty-gritty details of punctuation and English comp, my brain starts to seize up and I can't do anything for days at a time!

Man was meant to dream of better worlds, rather than nit-picking the phrasing of isolated phrases. It's a necessary process, but also a fairly painful one.

Maybe some men. Others were meant to nit-pick and dreaming of better worlds is beyond them/us.

Some men understand that getting the details right is what allows better worlds.
