    Chapter 33: An Abject Low

    Kohl truly is an idiot. There's no other way to put it. Maybe he'll finally get to the bottom of his problem. So to speak...

    A Bath Before Bed

    Music is the perfect way to distract a troubled mind. My choir is actually doing Fauré's Requiem. Very beautiful music. And a bath is another good idea.

    Food Impostors

    I'm amazed Frank kept it up despite all the sabotage. But to sacrifice him seems rather harsh...
  4. Listening to a 90s mix. Suddenly, "Nothing compares 2 u" comes on and I'm transported back in time. 16 yo me slowdancing with Arturo, a hot Mexican guy I met while travelling to St Petersburg. Much too old for me and he knew it. But days of exchanged glances couldn't be denied. That one night of dancing was all we had. I'll never forget. I wonder if he ever thinks of me.

      Meanwhile in Florida:

       

      Around that same time, I went out with a tall Hawaiian. At an amusement park at night, we held hands while riding a rollercoaster just as it started to rain and the ride was closed immediately afterwards. I remember he was obsessed with tiny pizzas, but to be quite honest, I can’t remember his name. :lol:

      Wait, it just came to me! I think it was “Johnny.”

    Conflict

    Excellent point!

    Conflict

    Conflict - very important! It's an excellent way to give readers a chance to really get to know your characters. When faced with conflict, we reveal our true selves. I agree it doesn't have to be spectacular. Less is often more, unless you are writing some epic hero tale filled with quests to save the world or something. Adding some drama and some flaws in each character (even the hero) makes for a much more interesting read.

    Chapter 10

    Treading carefully and always strategizing to stay one step ahead. Must be exhausting, but nothing new for Arad. He's well prepared for survival. I just wish he could get to do some living...

    Inverted at Work? - a plea for advice

    I think you've gotten a lot of good advice already, so I just thought I'd add my own personal, introvert experience. It took me quite the while to realize I was an introvert. For a long time, I thought I was shy (which I actually am, but this goes deeper). It wasn't until a few years ago that I learned it's part of who I am. I will never be the life of the entire party, but in a more intimate setting I can be hilarious and reduce people to tears (of happiness). When I feel safe, I can do anything. If I'm in my field of expertise, I can be more assertive than most and have no problems arguing my case. So being an introvert doesn't mean you will never be able to command a room or be the boss. I've been in management for the past five years and I love it. It gives me the opportunity to have one-on-ones with people to help them grow, and that is so much fun. I can guide them on their way through their work life and perhaps even life. So don't think introversion is an obstacle. It doesn't have to be. That intuition is a powerful thing. When I hire, I try to find a balance between extros and intros. We all complement each other and a good boss knows this. Though extroverts have an advantage in this world of ours, even here in Sweden (where most are more or less introverted...). So, my advice would be to find your field where you feel at home and a place to do it in. Then you will shine. It sounds as if you already know quite a lot about your preferences and strengths. Build on that and don't let the douchy extros get you down. You have so much to offer and if someone doesn't see what you've got, it's their loss. Go wreak that quiet havoc!

    Finding it hard to let go.

    It's been such a short time. You could still be in shock. So let things take the time they need, no matter what others think. I'm sure Josh will help you if you, for some reason, get stuck in your grieving process. For now, let yourself be sad. Because it is sad.

    Chapter 53

    Swift dealing with the traitors. Still, I doubt it was easy. Deke is right. The nightmares will eventually show up, for a time of processing.

    A Walk in the Park

    What a strange thing to do, pretend to reconcile. What could Stuart possibly hope to gain? Their plan for a lease is good, but I think mum's new beau will want cold, hard cash upfront.

    Chapter 13.2

    The numbers are racking up. Not possible to ignore anymore, regardless of consequences.

    Chapter 13.3

    Ehum... Kit really knows how to pick his moments. Daring to blurt that out when Simon is midbite.
  14. Publishing these types of stories gradually is a very good idea. Sometimes, I feel swamped to read so many at once and it's all too easy to miss one or two. This way, I think readers have a better chance to enjoy the stories.
  15. Going home today and feeling a little blue after saying goodbye... But also so happy I decided to go on this mad, four day dash half around the world.
