Complete Site Overhaul!

I was attempting to post the updated version of "The Substitute" this evening (really - I made some many little edits!), and was having all sorts of trouble - failed updates, missing tool bars, etc. Drupal's always been a bit difficult for me, and I'm completely stuck on how to fix what's ailing it now. So, my husband suggested changing the site over to Wordpress. I'm not sure exactly how long this will take, since he's helping me out in his free time (after trying to beat computers/the internet into submission all day at work), but I'm hoping it won't be too long. I was so excited to repost "Better Half!" And since it's hard to post anything here right now, keep an eye on the Facebook page. Thanks for sticking with me!


Hello again!

If you haven't already noticed, I've made a few changes in preparation for re-uploading all of Better Half. As of now, all the Better Half stories have been taken down, partly to help me keep track of which ones I've already uploaded and which still need to be done (which is all of them at this particular moment). I'm going to start putting them back up, a couple at time, this weekend. This gives me a few more days to scour them for boo-boos. 

There was a story that was related to, but not in the same storyline as, Better Half called "Peace." I'll be reposting that as well, but under a new heading: "Better Half-Elsewhere in the Universe." You can see it up in the tabs above this post. For now, "Peace" will be the only story there, but I've been brainstorming some of Pike's backstory for a loooooong time, so expect something on him in the future. 

I've also updated my e-mail adress on the About Me and Links pages (in the tabs above), since it was easier to create a new one than to bother my husband for access to the old one (which was mostly a dumping ground for Canadian pharmaceutical spam anyhow). 

As for the Links page, I've removed a broken link and added a few comics that I really enjoy, so check them out!

Thanks again!


Still alive...


I'm seriously still alive! And I've even been writing a little bit, crafting some new "Better Half" extras that have been bouncing around in my head for quite some time. So hopefully I'll get something new up soon. In the meantime, I've done some minor over-hauling to all the chapters in that story to clear up some plot points, so I'm planning to repost ALL of them in the very near future. Keep an eye out for that, and stop by and say 'hi' on Facebook - I'm lonely!

Thanks again!


Two in a row!

Woo! Even with the new Lonely Island album and some old "Inside the Actor's Studio," I managed to get something done! Well, sort of. I've reposted "Better Half" #12, "The Ex." There were a few spots that needed some lovin', but I think they're all taken care of now. I have re-read the chapters after this one, but only quickly. I need to scour them a bit more, and then there'll be some more re-posting. It lets me pretend I'm really working hard. And maybe once I feel "Better Half" is in a better place, I can, you know, finish the middle of "Full Circle" or something crazy like that.

Thanks again for your support.


So ... yeah.

So much for getting those edits up. I actually just started looking at them again this week. Since I last posted, I've started working full time, so I've been tired when I haven't been busy (ie, reading or watching Game of Thrones). But I just started poking through "Better Half" Chapter 11 and on the other night, and have been making some necessary changes. I also finished (I think) the dirty extra for Chapter 10, though I'm not sure if or when I'll post even when I can stop blushing long enough to edit it. In the meantime, I'm reposting Chapter 4, since I noticed some boo-boos there while looking for something else. Sheesh. 

So hopefully I'll be updating again before there's snow on the ground again ...

Thanks for sticking with me!


Plugging Away

While I wait for the snow to stop so I can go shovel (blerg), I posted the next round of edited "Better Half" chapters. Chapters 4 through 10, and any extras associated with them, are now up! The rest won't be far behind.


A (very) modest update.

In order to get myself back in the writing mood, I started re-reading (for the seventy-billionth time) "Better Half." I've reposted the first 3 chapters, all with some minor changes. Well, mostly to chapter 3, where some conversations have been added to. I mostly found boo-boos in the other two. Anyhow, it's better than nothig, right? If you want to see the changes, or are just tuning in, the story starts here. Hopefully I'll get through them all this week. Since my husband will be away on business, it's looking like I will. And maybe I'll come up with somethng new to add as well. 

Thanks for checking in!


I'm Alive ....

.... but still don't have an update. I'm quite ashamed. Especially because I really have tried to write, but everytime I start, something (usually bad) happens, and I lose focus. Things have calmed down a little, and I'm hoping they stay that way. so maybe I can sit down and finish a gosh darn story. Or add something fun to another one. Whichever.

If you're still checking, thanks so much for hanging in there. Hope to have someting to reward your patience with soon. :)


For now...

I realize it's been a long time since my last actual update, and honestly, I can't say for sure when the next one will be. As much as I want to finish "Full Circle," I just don't have much motivation at the moment. So for now, I'm taking a break. I'll leave the site up in hopes that I'll get around to finishing the story. 

Thanks for sticking with me, and hope to see you back here soon. :)


Shame on me

I feel like such a bum. Two weeks, and still nothing. My excuse this time - the weather. It's been so nice and sunny, I've been out playing in the lake and basking instead of hunkered down in front of the computer. But the forecast for this week looks pretty miserable, so hopefully I can finally sit down at focus on finishing at least the next chapter of "Full Circle." I'm terrible, I just keep thinking I want to do more "Better Half," even though there's really nothing left to do there. But all the little extra stories were so much fun ....  (If you have any suggestions that would at least get me writing something, send it my way!)

So, once again I'll say see you next week, and hopefully this time I'll really mean it and have something to post. 

Thanks for sticking with me!
