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.

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.

Update 10/7/2017: I completed my story about Burning Man and have tossed it into the editing process. This is a follow on to my story from a few years ago, Out of Bounds. It took me a long time to figure out how to do this but I like what I've done. Hopefully you will too. It won't satisfy everyone, and perhaps no one, but it takes the story down the path that makes sense to me. There are a lot of personal experiences that make it into this story, but none of it is me. And there is very little about this year's Burn that is part of it. I couldn't completely avoid it, but it's limited to an oblique reference in a single paragraph. For some, there will be far too much about Burning Man in this story but I was originally inspired by a couple of stories on Lit that clearly didn't understand it. I have no idea whether those authors have ever been, but I kind of hope not. In any case, I would expect that it will get posted in a few weeks, plus or minus a couple.

Update 11/5/2017: The Burning Man story is still in the editing process, but making progress. So it will get there when it's ready! In the meantime, I've been busy. I finished Chapter 16 of my long series and well into the next. I've also been working out some details about how that series goes. In the distractible author category, I'm working on a couple of other ideas I am toying with in the background when I reach a point where I need to think about the next part of my primary story.

Update 12/2/2017: I'm now in my final editing process for my Burning Man story. I have almost all the feedback in and am just fine-tuning it and rereading it one last time. I should be posting it within a week, plus a few days to get approved. Sorry and thanks for being patient.

Update 3/30/2018: I'm in a bit of a writers slump right now. I'm not making much progress on any of my stories, in part because life is busy right now. Hopefully I'll get a second wind soon. It isn't like I don't have stories in the works. I made the most progress on my long single chapter story (although I honestly may need to break that up).
