Not Entirely Alone With Myself

Recommended Posts

FYI -- back to NEAWMS. As I said to one of my editors tonight:

Gavin didn't even originally have a name. He was called "good samaritan teen" right up until I sent in the chapter to edit. Delos was originally scheduled to kiss and make up with Alex and go with him to find Nicky. That is not looking viable now, is it? (Okay, I know the answer to this).

Coming soon: a new chapter :)

So if the characters decide what to do and the story writes itself why does it take so long for new chapters to come out :lol:

Because the bastards have to go thru me to tell their story. That, and the voices in my head have been quiet lately. :lol:

They're teens. They take a long time to tell me what they've decided. And then I have to get it on paper (screen). Then my editors send it back and I have to do it again.

It's very hard for me to write. It's even harder to write well. I just don't want to post shite.

If I post one per month, you will always have a chapter on schedule within a few days. If I post more often, I might get behind, and like AWMS you'll wait months between chapters. A schedule is better.

Those damn teens, you ask them to take out the trash or clean their room and they take a week. Mention getting a car and they're ready in 10 seconds.

I wouldn't worry, nothing I've read to-date has been shite so I guess you're doing something close to right :lol:

Here's a thought. Have all the sex scenes in 3 point type. Almost no-one will be able to read it without a magnifying glass. :lol:

I am done through chapter 19 (less whatever my editors manage to wreak)

I had planned this (as posted earlier) as 18 to 20 chapters. Ain't gonna happen. I am thinking right now it'll be 21 and a few loose ends won't get tied up (on purpose). Maybe 22. If I tie up loose ends it'll go to 23 but I like a few loose ends so 21 or 22 is likely my final count.

Also, my loyal reader(s)* will get a special bonus when it's all over. This will be announced in a forthcoming email.

December's chapter as you know was posted early (Thanksgiving). I will also have January's chapter posted for Christmas and there will be a bonus for everyone at that time. I promised one and am aiming to deliver my little holiday gift to my readers.

* Defined as those who have written me at least once about NEAWMS.

It'll be personally delivered to your door by the 'coon himself?? I'll be sure to have a full trashcan handy for payment. :wink:

Hmmm...

[one chapter/month] * ([23 total chapters] - [7 published chapters]) = 16 months

16 months beginning January, 2008 means we'll see chapter 23 in April, 2009.

Good grief, WBMS! You have devised the penultimate cliffhanger! :wink::lol::lol: (And I DO mean penultimate!)

Colin :wink:

Am I allowed to say that I never had any doubt of Wibb'ys pen is, definitely being ultimate? :hehe:

It's entirely possible the posting rate might change after I finish. But they'll be password protected so nobody of Irish Descent who lives in California can access them.

You know, we Irish are very sensitive, having suffered unwarranted and scandalous discrimination in the past. We take great offense whenever someone discriminates against us. You, good sir, should be sympathetic as a member of a class, raccoon, that is reviled and assailed by many, both human and animal. We are saddened and disappointed that such an umbrage should occur on this forum and in plain view of its august membership. :mad: I believe that an apology is in order, good sir! :icon11:

The final count is 22. It's not done the editing process, but it is finished.

Expect further details in an email by 22 December. There will be several announcements and notations :) Emails are sent to regular readers who have e-mailed me at least once, or by written request.

Man, I have got to say this ending will rock your world. It's GOOD.

In a year and a half, we will know how it ends. Actually, it's a good idea to have a monthly chapter. It keeps the attention on the author. :icon1:

Of course the story whore in me wants it alot sooner, like yesterday. :wav:
