I'm Running away....

Well, maybe it's more like Driving into the future   the bad part is I'm loosing internet access for a few months   I'm going to school to drive big trucks!! Of course, this means that I have got to get a Notebook type computer and one of those celular internet cards before I can get back on line so I am going to be out of touch for the most part all summer .   The worst part is I won't be able to finish The rider's pride, Sky's the limit, or Living in Surreality till I get back

I still don't believe it

the best thing in the world happened to me yesterday(friday night)   I though Myspace was just another place to delete spam till last night. She found me!!! My wife(long term seperated) contacted me on Myspace. some people would say that is a bad thing, but you gotta get the rest of the picture. I haven't been able to contact Her or my son in a long time, about 11 years. Well needless to say, all the thoughts of being rejected came flooding into my head causing me to go totally nuts.

doing a little dance

yep, I just sent Kurt the final draft of chapter 7, so I am doing a little happy dance.

I am so bummed

Okay, so I have been fighting with chapter 7 for about two months now and since I didn't feel really comfortable posting about the problems I am having in the mentoring forum, I ended up just pounding my head against a brick wall.   Well, I decided to send what I had to someone before I deleted it(again) to get some input. the person I sent it to read the entire story, IMed me and asked, "Why are you writing chapter 10 stuff for chapter 7?"   After I thought about it for a few, I decied

Let's face it, I'm in a slump

Yep, that's what it is, a torturous, agonizing, completely agrivating slump. Now don't get me wrong, I am still wofking on chapter 7 almost every night, The problem is, every time I go back and read what I have, I keep reaching out for the delete key. Nothing seems to sound right when I read it back to myself. I even had to get a second opinion on the fifth attempt at this chapter, just to keep from scrapping this draft.   Most likely, it's because of my grandmothers condition. She is hol

I think kurt might just dis-own me

hehehe...I asked Kurt a question a few days ago and got a fairly straight answer...they wanted more.   the next question I asked him got a resounding "Not Sci-fi"   the part he is going to laugh about, when Kurt said they wanted more, I told him "I'm not going to start another story till IFLM is done...the part where he might dis-own me...it's Sci-fi   this is just a few words strung together, Kurt hasn't even seen it yet; heck, he might make me get a second editor for this one...lol

getting there

It's been a week since I heard about Grandma, and I think I have gone through every emotion you can think of in the last week. Heck, I've been so scatter-brained, I couldn't even focuse long enough to comment on any of the anthology stories...well, I held up long enough to post one, but that was about it.   Things are starting to get back to a point where I can function again, at least for now, I am hoping I can get back to a point where I can write again soon, but it doesn't look verry pro

Monday really felt like it

You all know the title of my story...well let me tell ya how my week has been so far.   I got up just like always on monday, had to turn the heat on so I froze my but off till the temprature in the house got up to 60. I got my shower done and had just started to grab a towel when my phone started ringing...at 6:20 in the morning. It was my sister that lives 100+ miles away. She was calling to tell me that one of the special people in my life had been taken to the hospital and had been ther

I saw something...

actualy, I was wandering the Efiction a few minutes ago, just clicking around when I stumbled on to something. it kinda shocked me when I opened up the top ten lists, and found myself on three of them. The more I thought about that; then remembering what Max03 said, questioning my opinion about my writing; maybe I need to start listening more to people, instead of just hearing what they are saying...so hear it goes...the frist try....let's see if I can do it....Maybe I can write(a little)   o

this one is really important

I need some help. yes, I know what you are thinking, and I am not talking about guy's in white coats and one of those jakets that make you hug yourself .   here is the problem, I have major issues about Jeff and John getting together...at least sexually I have never written a sex scene and am very nervous about it. well, I say writing prompt number 12, and just had to do something ...I still can't believe I did it   Anyway, I really need some feadback on what I posted there...click

yeay! It's another mood swing

Yes, sometimes it sucks to be me ...but today...it really sucks to not be me .   yep, somebody flipped my coin and I landed 'sunny side up' yesterday .   I sat down and got two pages done on IFLM before I had to get to bed. Today I figured out how to end the story.   I really have to thank everyone that has read it so far, and even more importantly, left all the reviews and comments. I am kinda bummed out that some of the comments pointed out how confused people got, but I guess

just thinking out loud

HI Everyone,   I haven't been up to writing much lately. It seems that I have fallen victum to a really strong mood swing, making it almost impossible to write the next chapter without strangling Kevin and shooting Jamie in the foot   when I add to that the fact that I have picked up a cold and have been working 60 hour weeks for the better part of 2 months, I feel like I'm shutting down inside.   since this seems to making me feel worse...I'm just gonna stop here...maybe I'll finish

It's coming soon

Hi all,   since I resigned from the committee, I finally found the time to finish chapter 5. Kurt might give it back to me before friday, so all I will say is that I'll post as soon as I get it back   Hugs, Tom

I resigned

Yep, I resigned from the WST yesterday. I almost regret doing, it but not quite. when I joined the team, I had hoped to make a diffrence, but with work going into overdrive, and the committee responsabilities, I found that I was starting to miss my writing more and more.   I also found that my stress levels had gotten to the point where everything was starting to push me toward a depressive mood swing. The one thing that confirmed my need to resign was one word. when something is bought it t

Sorry it's been a while

hehe...Sorry it has been so long. Chapter 5 is still in the writing stage. Getting a new committee going is really time consuming...and then they asked me to lead it. but it has been really fun so far   I am being told there are some really good things to come here at GA, so stick around

depressoin sucks

Hi all,   Just thought I'd drop a line and tell everyone what's going on with my story. I have posted chapter 3 and sent chapter 4 to Kurt for editing. chapter four went in a direction I didn't expect...and it brought some memories back up from those places in my mind best not explored. Now, every time I sit down to work on chapter 5, I just seem to lock up.

what a goof

Man I goofed. I thought Kurtie was goingto be back last Sunday. As it turns out, he gets back this coming Sunday

delay in life

Hi all, Just had to stop in and chat for a while. I feel kinda bad about the delay in posting chapter 3. It got up to 110 degrees outside my house sunday, and my computer room doesn't have airconditioning. For the past three days I haven't been able to run my computer long enough to write more than five words. Add that to the 10 hours of overtime in the last week, and I haven't gotten anything written. Kurtie has chapter 3 right now, but as all teenagers know, the parents take priority...and his

been a while

I couldn't post last night. It took to long to calm down after reading my first reviews. I finally got 3 after I posted chapter 2!! I just hope chapter 3 is liked as much . Most of the story just seems to form all on it's own. I started out with a destination, but I don't really have a road to travel on. It makes it really easy to not give out spoilers...cause I don't even know what will happen . I did get three responses from nifty today

blog this...blog that

Yup, It's my blog... I'll never know what to put in here. So, where I work, it is that time of year. the time for random o/t and long days, and given the editing marks Kurtie left on IFLM ch2, it may be a few days before I post 2 or even start 3. And just for the record...A snail walking across my keyboard can get a story out faster than I can . The next chapter will be posted by friday though, after that, I just don't know
