(Yeah, this one is late, but to be honest, I'm lucky to even be able to put this one up at all. Once again, I was without internet service, and that has lasted from Friday to this Monday afternoon. Worse, I also had major phone line problems... I was unable to receive or make calls at all during that time, and didn't even have a dialtone. I'm STILL having this problem, though I found a temporary work around for that. Still, something weird is apparently going wrong with the telephone wiring in my house, and I need to get to the bottom of that... joy.
Anyway, at least I'm able to put up the next installment. As I'm sure you guys have guessed, we're pretty much at the end of this thing... there's probably going to be one more piece, and we're done. I really hope those of you who read this like the story, and I would really appreciate any constructive criticisms you may have. Also, if you are so inclined, please feel free to express your enjoyment of the story with a donation. It's not incumbent upon you guys at all, but considering the work I put into this (as well as the major financial woes we've been having. :b), it would definitely be appreciated. I'll try to see if I can send you guys something a little special for doing so.
Enough of that... you guys aren't hear for any of that stuff. Let's ( Collapse )
(You have any idea how annoying it is to have to replace every last quotation mark in a story piece because for some reason they didn't carry over correctly from a word document? Well, it's very annoying... not to mention time consuming. Oh well...
Anyway, here's the next story piece. I know I missed Friday's installment (please don't kill me), but it was a really crazy, and without going into details, there was just no way I would have been able to get it up on time. And then there was the fact that I had to perform some disk scans and repairs on this laptop's harddrive over the weekend. Yeeaah... I think I'm overdue for a hard drive replacement. But I need money for that....
Eh, enough of my problems. You guys just ( Collapse )
(well, I definitely have to apologize for missing Monday's update. But considering the way my laptop was acting over the weekend (or should I say, NOT acting...), it wasn't going to happen. Plus I've been busy job hunting... really need to find a better paying job than what I have now (those donation buttons aren't just for decoration... :b). Still, I apologize for not having a story piece up for Monday.
So to make up for that, I'm going to post up a piece I wasn't going to show you guys originally. part of the reason for not showing you this was because when I turn this into an ebook, I figured having an extra bit of story would be an incentive for purchase. Another reason though was because I wasn't sure how you guys would take it. It's a bit... erm... controversial. But I also think there's a good chance you guys will enjoy it... if you aren't the type to be offended by... well, what you're about to read (don't worry, there's nothing graphic here).
Enjoy, and I'll try to make sure things go well for Friday's update.
(Well, it's Monday. So you know what that means...
By the way, do you guys think this chapter has gone on too long? That was a worry I was having while writing this, and even though I decided to keep it all into one chapter, I still wonder if it should have been cut in two. What do you think? Feel free to let me know.
(new one up. And I know it's late, but actually, this was technically ready to be up earlier. I had all set for the journal entry and everything... but apparently when I clicked the "post" button before rushing to work, it didn't take. So I was greeted with the stupid entry window when I got back home... at 12:30am. ugh....
... well some people still consider this Friday night, so hey, I'm not really late... right?
Anyway, the action is still ramping up here, so we're going to continue moving things along. Also, I've been thinking of posting up something a little extra in the middle of the week... little tidbits like background info on the characters and the setting, as well as other related stuff. If you guys are interested in something like that, let me know.
(Yes, you can go ahead and smack me for posting this late... I deserve it. But I least I didn't forget! It's just been a rather busy (and frustrating) day. No, I won't burden you guys by telling you about it. I'm just going to do hat I should have done earlier and post this story piece up.
(Please forgive me for posting this up so late: it's been a bit of a long day, and it's only now that I've really had time to sit in front of this laptop and get this up. If it's any conciliation, at least the good stuff's started. :)
