I think I mentioned somewhere that 18 Weeks was begun in the middle of September '14 and finished sometime in April '15. I am (obviously) not a writer by profession, but the story just kept pouring out as I wrote all the chapters, every one. Then, of course, the hard part. I must have rewritten the chapters thousands of times, moving stuff around, adding and subtracting characters, etc. I'm sure every writer does this, but I certainly had never written a 250,000 word story before!
Prior to submitting each chapter, I continue rewriting, modifying and changing the emphasis of certain characters. I'm sure that's probably common too. My point in mentioning all this is that I still consider this story unfinished ...a work in progress.
Looking ahead, at the upcoming chapters, I've made a decision. There is sex, and it plays a part in the development of the plot and (possible) resolution of the story. But I have begun excising graphic elements of the sex scenes. I've come to the conclusion they don't belong in this story. With one possible exception, these boys are not professionals and don't have much experience. The sex will still be there, and except for the humor found in some inept fumbling or unexpected discoveries, just not in gory detail.
I hope this is acceptable, and I'm sorry if you don't approve, but I'm resolute about this.
