  1. The Strange Life of Jonas Marks is complete. The epilogue is up. Yes, the story no one expected me to finish, is done, edited and published. A huge thank you to @Valkyrie. No, there are no plans for a sequel at this time. LOL

  2. It's so nice to get work out again. Just wish I didn't have a cold. Oh well. Finish some writing then I'll bake cookies.

    1. Valkyrie


      I hope you feel better soon :hug:

      Cookies are a great way to cure a cold. Also, it's no calories Saturday. Nothing has calories in it today. 😎😂

      More like how I destress. Oh course I slept the day away. This cold is kicking my butt.

  3. Shhhh. Don't tell anyone, but that is two projects posted, two more completed in the pipeline, and two more being worked on. Go me.

  4. My story for the Halloween prompt is up. Halloween on the Cul-de-sac was my entry. Go read and let me know what you think. If you haven't read the rest of the stories, why not? Go read and comment. They were so good.

  5. Ever notice, when it rains it pours? My brother lost his mother-in-law today and is flying up to join his wife for her wake and funeral. I'm dealing with a cold, and my father just had shots in both knees for no cartridge. Trying to stay motivated with work and writing. Going to be a long weekend.

  6. I'm not sure why I was notified about one post, but now trying hard to not let it trigger my own issues. Probably sound off, but so be it.

  7. Okay, do I have a willing victim, i mean volunteer,  willing to read over and comment honestly on a chapter. It's the epilogue to Jonas, so you sort of need to know the story.

      I'm not a very good beta reader but I suddenly felt that I need to re-read that story cause I love it :) and I loved the "Little Blue One's Bakery" in the story :P  I hope you are well, Wayne :hug: 

    2. comicfan


      I'm getting there. Your bakery comes back in the epilogue if I can find a beta and editor. :glomp:

    3. Starrynight22


      I hope you've found one.  Jonas' story is one of my favorites.  

  8. Hey Billy. Just checking in. Hope you are ok.

      Hey Wayne. I'm doing okay. Enjoying Florida for now. How are you?

    2. comicfan


      Surviving. Glad you are enjoying Florida. Talk soon.

  9. I'm always so pleased to find people here on GA willing to step up and help. I will forever be indebted to such wonderful people.

  10. Anyone free for a really quick beta on Halloween story?


  11. I'm back to work in about ten days. My hand is still numb and the scar on my wrist is still not healed and weeps a lot. 


    On a positive I'm trying to finish three of my incomplete works before I go back. I'm also adjusting to the fact that losing people sucks, but you need to adjust your life or you have problems spending so much time alone.

  12. Sort of crushed. Just found out a young man I knew, lost his battle with depression. Suicide is such an ugly thing. My heart hurts.

      :hug:  I'm so sorry to hear.  

    3. mollyhousemouse


      so very sorry for your loss

    4. Puppilull


      So sad to hear that. Depression is scary.

  13. Been working on three different projects. Guess what? I finished one. It is a story for the fall anthology. I know. Surprised the hell out of me too. Next step is to find a beta and editor. Wow,  not even close to the deadline. Go me.

      Ha ha! That must be a shock! To be finished four months in advance! I'm impressed and curious about your story. Good to have something to look forward to come autumn. 

  14. A month from today I return to work. Just hope things go well.

    1. Reader1810


      Sending good thoughts that all will go in your favour. :hug: 

    2. Daddydavek


      Sending good karma from the midwest too! :hug:

  15. Hope everyone had a good 4th of July.

  16. So went for a check up with my doctor. Xray shows im healing well and i lost 17 lbs in the last three weeks so the doc is happy. So far so good.

    1. Valkyrie


      Glad to hear your recovery is going well :hug:

      Good to hear!! 🙌

  17. The GA News Letter Pride Headline Stories came out today. If you haven't read them yet, why not? Remember to leave the authors a like and a comment. Never hurts to let the authors know you enjoyed their work.

  18. Don't ask why but I'm in the middle of writing a new Seer chapter. Some characters just like to pop back up.

  19. Anyone free that can look over a short story quickly. It's for the Pride Story Cia is running.

      If you haven't found anyone else, I can help.

    2. comicfan


      Thanks so much for the assist Tim.  :thankyou:

    3. Timothy M.

      Timothy M.

      You're welcome, I look forward to finding out what your prompt headline was.

  20. I walked around the block and made it home without wanting to pass out. I just had to wait for the sun to nearly go down and the temp to drop. Can't wait to return to normal.

  21. Slowly doing what I need to.

  22. The last three weeks have been horrific, but I've survived. On Monday i was released from Stony Brook hospital where I had triple bypass on my heart. Hope to play catch up, but that is why anything associated with me has been dodgy.

      Been thinking about you since I was told you had surgury.. I hope you feel better soon :hug:

    3. comicfan


      Thank you all. Just taking it slow.

      Sending healing wishes your way :hug: Take care of yourself and hope you're fully recovered soon. 

  23. Home from work and writing.

  24. I was 3/4 of the way through my version of a story for the anthology. Unfortunately, I watched something which gave me a different idea and I'm starting over. Now I just hope to finish. Sometimes stupidity wins. 

    1. Mikiesboy


      go for it.. best of luck!

    2. Valkyrie


      I'm essentially starting over with mine, too.  Fingers crossed we both get them written in time! :) 

    3. Puppilull


      Plot bunnies are notoriously unpredictable...

  25. If you haven't yet read the Idioms Are Real! Challenge stories yet, what are you waiting for? All so different and fun. Go read, leave a review, and give the author a like. Remember it encourages them to keep writing.

    1. Mikiesboy


      They were a lot of fun to write and to read. Lots of excellent stories!
