Okay... first blog entry... have no idea what to write here. You were right, Dan, the first step is always the hardest. :)I

See, Dom, that wasn't TOO hard, was it?

 

 

You've been getting bad e-mails over Service? Send them to me...I'll pop into Jarred mode and tell them what they can do with their objections. :)

 

Okay, I'm in an evil mood today.

 

I really do look forward to the next DD and TLW, as well as more TOU. That's one of the reasons I was hesitant to approach you on Service. However, with the format for Service, we can go several weeks without having to put out a new chapter...so it shouldn't take too much time away from your stories.

 

:)

 

Besides, I've been busy pushing out chapters of DOR. :)

 

Glad to see ya blogging, and don't worry, it gets easier with each one...

 

and borrowing a trend from another website...FIRST!

 

Oh, and Dom, on the my blog screen, or the blog editing screen, you will see an option that says "hide draft entries" you'll want to click that after saving a draft entry if you won't want them visible to everyone. :) I learned that the hard way. Click that linea again (right side control panel) to show the draft entries when you're ready to finish it up.

Yay! I did it! :) Oh, and anytime you're ready to start on Service again, let me know.... although, I think it's my turn to write a chapter if I've got the order right.

Dom--

 

Great to see you blogging.

 

I've been waiting patiently (all right, not so patiently, but not sharing my frustration with anyone, either) for further chapters of DD and TLW.

 

I'm curious, as I read TLW, if you have in mind any particular part of the country as you wrote it. The geography in my head sees it as in New England somewhere, probably New Hampshire or some Massachusetts mill town. It's the town-based education that's the kicker for me. I'm not expecting you to commit it to any particular place, but I am wondering what geographical region you imagined as you wrote it.

 

Desert Dropping is so--well, "deserted," and "in place," though someone from Nevada shouldn't be complaining about Phoenix summer heat, unless Rory is from Reno/Sparks rather than Las Vegas. I really enjoy the dramatic irony--what's clear to the reader isn't at all clear to the protagonist, which makes Rory's folly all the more frustrating.

 

Keep up the good writing.

I still have to finish up the Friday night Jimmy chapter, which is almost done (just the dinner and party night to go). :) I've been focusing on Do Over Redux this week and really getting some chapters cranked out (three chapters in three days with a fourth about 1/3 of the way complete). I'll be posting the 2nd Jimmy Chapter (Chapter 3 in numerical order) on next Tuesday, so we have time before the Friday/Saturday chapters).

 

 

Ya know, this is really going to bug the crap out of readers... :)

Oh, and Dom, I'm glad to hear you've gotten some responses on Service. :) I've received about two e-mails and the posts in the forum. I guess it shows me who the good author really is...

 

 

(um, that was a stereotypical insecure author moment and should not really be interpreted as a chance for Dom fanatics to discourage me from encouraging him on Service. Dom has an evil side he needs to let out of the closet. Don't believe me? Any man who dreams up a character who automatically thinks about alphabetizing someone else's course books is evil just waiting to happen. Just be glad I don't write that story or Taylor would be rearranging all of Quinn's books so they were sorted by color)

I once went on a camping trip where there were too many organizers like that. A dozen of us brought food in coolers, pot-luck style. Someone rearranged all the food by how cold it needed to be kept. Then someone else rearranged all the food by when it would be eaten. Then someone else rearranged the food by type of food. Then someone asked, "where is the quiche I brought," and the food had been rearranged so many times that it took almost a half-hour to find it.

Hi Rigel,

Ya know what's funny is when Dom and I get our e-mail trains or chats going and we're going on and on about story details, and then one of us asks, 'um, what's the town's name?' I think we both decided it didn't need one.

 

I still don't know the High School's name, or the gas station's name. :)

 

Sometimes it's fun being an author!

 

At least you DO get e-mails Dom. (Okay, I do get a few) What really irks me is you have SO many damn votes (don't know what I'm talking about, look at the top sites list. There's a column for votes). You're putting me to shame there!

Um... just a thought, but why are authors doing all the work? Why can

It's that little VOTE bar on the main page of your site. Yours is in the lower left corner with a '3' in it. Mine is near the top where it says it's my page with a '4'. The number is our ranking on the top site list. You're going to catch up to Myr VERY soon, and I'm not far behind. Put the two of us together though, and we still don't catch up to Comicality who is #1.

Hmmm....FIRST? Are you DK on that site? Enquiring minds want to know? :ph34r:

Nope, I very rarely post over there. Too many people just want to talk trash instead of really talking about the stuff.
