    On Being a Writer and Encountering Angry Readers

    "Write for an audience of one, [yourself]." - Metatron, scribe of God, Supernatural S11E20. While I like the serial posting style, after some experiences, I've decided only to publish when the story is complete. That way I know, it's been written, edited, re-written, edited again, and then polished with a proofread. Having readers leave you because you're not posting to their mindset of when it should be published is a blow to the ego, but you eventually get over it. But, I'll admit it hurts when it happens. Frankly, I care too much about how my product is presented, which is why I go through several steps before posting my significant projects. If I didn't, I would say frak it and post everything, errors and all. I do with some as they are short scenes and practice pieces, kept in two collections labeled that they are RAW pieces, which I feel are good enough to showcase my writing style.
  2. Thanks once more for helping with this chapter, all the good feedback, and leaving a comment here. Yes, Adam is a little bit of a control freak, but he's open to input from everyone. The self-fulfilling prophecy is close to the mark. The main reason why he hasn't let Giles sleepover more, was because of what happened the night that Rob moved back in from his parents in the last book. He's waiting for Rob to prove he's responsible enough to allow Giles back over. He knows they are having some sort of sex, but he's waiting a bit.

    TC3 — Chapter 3: Healing Starts

    Thanks for reading and helping to edit this chapter, BB. I more align with Travis too, than I do my core family members. I guess being poor most of my life, I like my characters to be able to afford some nice stuff.
  4. Word of advice....

     

    If you have an old device that is sharing files with a new device via OneDrive, GoogleDrive, Dropbox, etc. Make sure you shut it off the program on the old device, before running a data shredder.

     

    And keep backups of backups. It just might save you time, hassle, suffering, and from having a stroke thinking all is lost.

      There is no such thing as too many backups. Digital data is a fragile thing. We don't like to think of it that way, but it is reality. It can be gone in a blink of the eye.

      Yup. It took me having 2 backups to get almost everything back. Lost some of the new stuff, and a couple of projects that for some reason I didn't back up or zip-filed.

    The Karggars of the Grey Wilds

    Another excellent chapter. I've come to find the characters well thought out, and the writing well developed.

    A submissive's journey ... Perception

    Meditation is something more people should do when it comes to self-reflection. I know that is something I lack at times.

    Good Gay Theme Movies

    To date, I've watched several Gay theme movies, and have been sorely disappointed. The "Eating Out series" is an example of Bad Gay films. "Shelter" was good, like the exception to the rule. This is just my opinion, but it just seems most of the English language Films, are just bad. From the quality of Acting, Storytelling, to Production itself, they all seem less than C-list movies. The foreign films being much better quality. Does, anyone have a suggestion on a Good Gay Theme movie?

    Chapter 9

    You already know what I think about this chapter. But I will say, great job. You did an excellent work with the descriptions overall.
  9. Happy National Coming Out Day!!!

    Hurricane Michael

    If you're of the praying sort, say one for Florida. It's a bad one headed for the panhandle. For our members in Lower Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas, if they say to evacuate, do it. Don't play games or be stupid.
  11. I have an offer, that you just can't refuse.

    Oops. I thought you were in NJ and near the city. My bad.

    New York City

    There's a few from that region, that I think might be able to help you. @Kitt @Defiance19 @Randy Wade comes to mind, and @Carlos Hazday goes there a lot.
  15. Happy Birthday!

    Miss seeing you in the DiC!

    One Little Snowflake

    In the years following an extinction level event caused by a gamma-ray burst, humanity is clinging to life in a devastated world. In the chaotic aftermath, the Xenoni, an alien race whose goal is galactic conquest, invade Earth. All life on Earth is at its limit, and it is now time for humanity to fight back.

    Meet Tibot, Adam’s Brother

    Thanks, BB... You're making me blush here. LOL

    Friends in Low Places

    Thanks, BB. The duality of Tibs is something I liked. On one hand, he's done some nasty shyte. On the other, he will do whatever he has to for the family. He feels that he owes Adam a lot, and doing this was just a drop in the bucket, to him. His main concern is to keep his nose clean, until he's no longer being watched, and stay addiction free.

    Retribution

    Thanks, BB. I'm glad you enjoyed My Son, and for the support. 🙂
  20. To all my fellow Floridian GA members in the Panhandle and our Georgia Members. Stay safe, evac if you are in the path of the storm and in a flood zone, don't take chances.

     

    Michael is only a Tropical Storm now, but it's projected to be a Cat3 when it reaches land.
