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. 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.

Recently Lit changed how the profiles work and limited the number of words in the biography. Sorry, I enjoyed the blog idea while not being ambitious enough to truly have a blog. So from now on it will simply be the last few updates.

3/12/2017: It's been a while, I know. I am at once both in a bit of a writers block and productive. I am in the middle of chapter 15 of my series, but it's been bogging down. I did figure out that because of some changes, it will be at least one more chapter than I expected. I started doing a little work again on the Burning Man story and I finally picked up the very long single chapter story that I haven't worked on in a year. I made a lot of progress there as well as edited the first half again, surprising myself at how many errors I find on a third read through. It isn't clear to me which one I will keep working on but in the meantime, it is nice to make progress on something.

5/2/2017: I continue working on my various stories although I'm mostly working on my longer one. I don't like talking too much about it because I think it works best without revealing anything about it. But I am doing something I haven't done before. The ending came to me in pretty clear form and I stopped writing the middle and am instead writing the ending. Once I'm done with that, I'll finish the middle. It actually seems to be helping because since day one on this, I wasn't sure how I would end it. Once I got that clear idea of what would be the right way, I didn't want to risk losing that. In fact, I really only visualized the beginning of the end, but once I started down that road the rest just flowed. I'm pretty close to completing this portion and then I can go back. Rather than posting as one story, I think I have to do three chapters. It's just too long.

5/31/2017: Well, sometimes plans change. I was humming along with my one story and then I hit the wall. I couldn't make any significant progress, so I've moved back to my long series. It's going well but of course this is the one that has about 20 chapters to go so it's a long term effort. At some point I'll find the need to switch to one of the other ones or there will be a shorter story that just is bursting to get out. In the meantime, I appreciate the encouragement I get from some of you! <3

6/20/2017: Something got done! I completed Chapter 15 of my long series. Yay! Only 20 to go! It's a significant chapter and one that my editors have been waiting for! The webs are being woven but one at least got done ... for now. At this point in the story, no one has their happy ending, but there can be happy moments on the journey and this was one of those chapters. I've already started on Chapter 16 so it looks like this story is going to be the one I am working on for a while. I have a pretty clear idea of how this one goes, so we will see if it comes faster.

8/19/2017: Nope. I'm still working on Chapter 16. It's coming but I just have been busy so it's been hard to make a lot of progress. And I haven't touched another story although I've put down ideas for a new one, and have been working out the framework of a sequel to Beloved of Ashura. With the help of careythomas, I've also done a thorough editing of most of the completed chapters of my long series. So I don't feel unproductive. In a week, I'll be off my annual pilgrimage with more realistic expectations about what I might accomplish there. If I come back with something great, if not it will be because I had a great time.

9/5/2017 - I'm back from Burning Man, having enjoyed it and yet come back saddened at seeing the impact of the act of one person on people that I love and care about. Suicide hurts so many people, but all the more so when you do it in front of a huge crowd. Some people will take a long time to get over it. <3 to all. During the week I did manage to get a bit done on my Burning Man story. It's got the momentum now so I'll see how far I can ride it.
