Some words from -Ripley-:

I enjoy writing my stories and being able to share them and hear back from people about how they like them (or don't) is an important part of why I am here at Literotica. I appreciate all the kind things that people have said about my stories over the years, and the patience that they showed as I slowly wrote The Journey of Grace. Even the critical comments have value to me, although I am not sure I understand why some people choose to read stories where they hate the underlying theme and then criticize that instead of the story. But that is them, not me.

Update 11/15/2013: I've obviously become distracted again. Broken Woman isn't even the story that was diverting me from Slippery Slope. I have two in work that probably will be completed before I get back to Slippery Slope. I hope you like what I am publishing though.

Update 3/8/2014: It Didn't Work Out took me from November until now to complete. I hope to get back to Slippery Slope soon but I do still have a couple of stories that want to get written first. One is more than half done and the other is part way done. Then I think I will be ready to tackle Slippery Slope again.

Update 3/31/2014: Despite the scores, I am still pleased with the response to It Didn't Work Out. I got a lot of nice comments and emails and actually relatively few negative ones. I understand the point a couple people made about predictability but I wasn't trying to throw people off. I was writing the story of someone discovering herself. At heart, I am a romantic so my stories are influenced that way. I like a happy ending but not all stories get one. In the end, it really just depends upon the story that is being told.

Update 6/6/2014: I've just posted a new story call Coming to Grips, and it should be out in a few days. I'm starting work on the second chapter. I've also have another new story almost done. Hopefully it won't be too long before I get it completed. There are several others that are started. So this may be a productive summer for me writing. I hope you enjoy the new one.

Update 6/10/2014: Well I finished the other story faster than I thought. Out of Bounds is now pending being posted. It is very long at 13 Lit pages, but I am fairly satisfied with it. It's a little different from the normal romantic me. Coming to Grips got rejected, requiring a change to the backstory. It's hard to do that once you have something written, but hopefully it flowed alright, and it is enough of a change. I am looking forward to the reaction to both.

Update 6/12/2014: I don't know how many people read my updates here. So perhaps I will also add a comment of my own on Out of Bounds but for now I will keep it here. Out of Bounds is a sad story. I normally write ones with happy endings. Some have called it predictable but generally, I am a romantic. As a writer though, I want to stretch myself. Some of my stories have lives of their own and they end up in a different place than I expected. I knew where this one as going to end. I wanted to have a story that left me feeling sad. In my introductions, I give my editor Terry a lot of credit. He and I talked a lot about this. He was the voice of those who wanted Isabel to give Rachel a chance. And he has a wonderful set of arguments to be used with Isabel. I don't know if I will revisit Rachel and Isabel. There are a lot of happy stories that I have yet to write; and Suzanne in Coming to Grips needs her happy ending as does Chloe. The list of stories waiting somewhat impatiently for me to write is long. Nevertheless, whether it gets written or not, the door hasn't been shut on Rachel and Isabel. After all, Isabel could have thrown the paper out the window.

Update 7/26/2014: I continue to work on Coming to Grips Chapter 2. I've said that I thought it would take between a month and two months to write it. As I have gotten into it, it may take longer. It is turning out to be a fairly long story, substantially more than chapter one. Although I am working on it every day, it could take more time than I originally guessed.

Update 10/1/2014: I confess. Coming to Grips Chapter 2 is long. Very long. I had no idea how much story there was until I was writing it. I am coming down the home stretch but it's still taking time. Trust me. I want to get it done as much as you do. I think it will answer all the questions that the first chapter raised but didn't answer.

Update 11/7/2014: The first draft of the end of Coming to Grips is close to done. I have one remaining bit to write but it is really close. I will hold off on saying when, because that seems to be a jinx. Nevertheless I'm making a lot of progress each day. Then the task of editing will begin. I'll get through it as quickly as possible but it is a lot to edit. Then I have a couple of editors who will help me polish it. Still I'm getting close. And although I've decided to break it up into two chapters, I don't want to stop and finish off the first one. I'm on a writing roll and interrupting that is not a good idea. The story will flow better if I do them both at the same time and then post them two consecutive days.

Update 12/16/2014: The editing process is underway. The first very rough draft conclusion to Coming to Grips is done. I'm working on getting to a more polished version that my editors can actually read. Still no way to predict how long this process will take. A busy work and personal life combined with the holidays means I have less time available but I continue to make it a priority for me!
