Don't wait any longer. Just go read it and tell me how great it was.

It was amazing! I read it in one breath. It seemed that part was small. I want more. Especially looking forward to the development of the Evan-Miss style line, I want something hot. Thank you very much! The author is the best!

If you saw Potential 34 pop up as new that's because I fix a few typos.

I was planning on posting 35 this weekend, but I was quite ill all week. I'll get on the editing/proofreading tomorrow. Shouldn't take long.

I noticed that it has been awhile since anyone has commented on here. Just thought I would take a moment to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.  I hope all is well!  Of course I have to check on the status of the next chapter while I'm here... Can we expect an amazing Christmas gift from you in the form of Chapter 36?

Thank you for the comment, and the good wish for Thanksgiving. It was fine, although I spent it at home by myself. I made chicken soup.

As for 36, I sure as hell hope so. If not, something went terribly wrong. It has been a tough ride the past month with a great deal of pain in my arm, which makes it hard to be creative, but I think the break from sitting at the keyboard and my new office chair have helped.

Hi. Reader complaints about chapter length are meaningless. These sound rather like the king of Austria Hungary telling Wolfgang Mozart that his music contains too many notes. Your writing is not too long or too short, it’s what’s necessary to convey the story you’re telling. If I were you I wouldn’t even bother to address that non-issue any further. Readers who believe that the overall story itself is too long to read [too many chapters] should be reading something else.

To me, you’re one of the best writers of erotic fiction I’ve found. I think of your writing style as erotic, not porn. The quality of your writing, the multiple plots, the character development and much more are all part of any good novel. Keep up your good work, I’m looking forward to reading as much of your material as I can find. All the best.

This is quite possibly the Mona Lisa of erotic literature. I love it. I stayed up the entirety of the night devouring this masterpiece. The character development, the emotion that is so thick you just feel like you could reach out and touch it, the suspense of waiting to see what happens next, it makes for a perfect work of art. I can't wait for more. As someone who has dealt with the whole learning disability thing myself, I must say, Bravo.

That's the kind of comment that gives me a huge boner and makes me feel like I might actually have learned something from Eric back when he was breaking my balls about all the shit I wrote D:-Dbig_smile

I was nothing but kind, courteous, and gentle with my reviews.

Now spread your legs and sit still while I get the sledge hammer... :evil:

I began reading your story about a week ago.  I hammered through all 36 available chapters.  Kept me up pretty late a few days.  But I was not disappointed.  This story is one of the finer quality stories that I have read.  And I don't mean, just on this forum. 
But I suspect you've been keeping secrets.  Something your not ready to tell.  I can't wait to see the next chapter.
Damn good story.

Hi Bistander.

I just wanted to say that I found this story on another site, and I am really looking forward to reading more.

I've been avoiding saying anything because I hoped to be able to give an update with good news. I still don't have any, but too much time has passed, so here is the news. I got caught up doing other things, mainly trying to make a few dollars, and I completely lost the potential bread crumb trail in my head, along with the motivation to write. Yes, I feel like a dick the way I always do when I make everybody wait, but I'm not depressed the way I normally am when I am not writing. That's good in that I'm not in that downward spiral that happens, trying to figure out if I'm depressed because I'm not writing or not writing because I'm depressed. On the other hand, I have to get back to work. I haven't written anything or even finished the fix-up of My Neighbor's Incest I started. I've been trying to get started by whipping out a couple of quick short-short stories on paper, but I haven't been able to finish any, and today I spilled a cup of coffee on the pad of paper.

Hang in there if you can, but if everybody takes off to find finishers instead of me, I completely understand.

I came on the site looking for the next chapter. I'm mildly disappointed.  No new story fix.  I guess I'm going to have to work on that bathroom remodel some more.
It's good to hear that you are seeing with more clarity amid the chaos.  Making a few bucks is always healthy.
Don't beat yourself up about losing your way a little.  I'm pretty positive your fans will be more than happy to go back and maybe even read the entire story again to get refreshed.  Just remember, you want your fans to be anxious.
But you also want your fans to read other stories.  Variety is the spice of life.
My suggestion would be to turn down the lights. Grab something to drink. Put on a Moody Blues album and vegetate a little.
Their album "Seventh Sojourn" has always had a calming effect on me. Anything they did in the 70's is good.  Their albums "Search for the the lost cord" and "Days of the future past" are also excellent thought therapy. Maybe you don't drink, but I always found it nice to get a little buzz going first. A little sensory deprivation with only the music and a light buzz. It's a nice way to bring thoughts into focus.
This would be my "Zen" moment, without the Yoga stuff.

awesome advice! Breathe deep the gathering gloom, watch lights fade . . .

I'll get back to it. Been trying this week to at least finish the edits I started. My attention span is horrible, though. Worse than normal, as is my hyperactivity. I'm going to find somewhere comfortable away from all the distractions and internet access. Once I get into the groove again it'll come back.

thanks again for your words of wisdom.
