Never Too Late by northie

Recommended Posts

Hurray for some better news: the next chapter is ready to go and will appear (crosses fingers) next Friday. The following Friday will also be Eric, rather than Soul Music, I think.

Problems ahead .... My laptop has died. Although everything's saved to cloud storage, I've never tried accessing it through my tablet, never mind working with it. There may well be a delay in the next Eric chapter which is due on Friday. More news as I know it.  :(

If you can pair your tablet to a Bluetooth keyboard, typing is much easier. But I’ve struggled to edit what I’ve written on my iPad because iOS is so touch-oriented especially in contrast with the mouse-oriented MacOS. There are all sorts of hacks that tech nerds have worked out and someone has probably figured out how to use your TV to mirror the tablet’s display.  ;–)

I'm sort of managing with my reserve laptop. Writing up anything has to be done in small doses as I have to peer at the screen to spot my typing errors. It's only for a comparatively short time so I don't want to spend money.

Just a reminder there will be a chapter tomorrow.  :)

Though as soon as I've posted it, I'll be in there doing minor amendments, like changing the chapter title ... :rolleyes: *sigh*  :lol:

I've just reached the 100th virtual page of Eric's adventures this time around. :)   to me ... Possibly.  ;) 

There'll be another Eric chapter posted next week to make up for the lack of Soul Music. The end of next week is the earliest possible time for my main laptop to be returned. *fingers crossed*

Just realised the next two chapters are a pair (for reasons you'll discover :ph34r: ), so I've decided the next two Fridays will be Eric. Then there'll be a short hiatus while I catch up with Soul Music

It appears @Carlos Hazday and I have inadvertently used the some plot device in both our episodes today.  Oops!  :ph34r:  :X

Okay, I read the last scene of your chapter. I don't want to read too much so I don't spoil it for when I do read the story. Isn't it interesting how people end up in hospital these days for little things like hangnails? LOL

Does Eric end up in hospital? For an older man living on his own, maybe he doesn't want be institutionalised?

Don't forget there's another Eric episode today - it follows straight on from the one before ... :o

 

After this, things will resume to their usual fortnightly schedule.  :)

Reposting the schematic of Andy's own garden. You may wish to bear it in mind when reading tomorrow's chapter.

The writing is mine; everything else was filched from the internet. ;)

Nice - but the pond seems overgrow with algae or pond weed. :gikkle:

Today's chapter is posted (a little late) from Eric's home turf. Herefordshire, a little further north than him actually.

Just to say that whatever problems I might have with my other story, there will be an Eric episode tomorrow. I squeezed in the inevitable re-edits yesterday. :)
