Author has written 17 stories for NCIS, Sentinel, Airwolf, Numb3rs, Batman, and Smallville.
Hello everyone :) Just wanted to let you all know that the Assaulted series was closed/completed with an outline as I haven't done any writing for it but it should give you a bit of closure.
Also, for those who don't know, I *am* over on AO3 - https:///users/Lilacs_Roses - and I've written a MCU and posted it. It is definitely not up to my standards but the idea was bugging me far too much and I just had to write it in the hopes it would calm down.
Yes, I am in the process of writing original stuff but not sure when I'll publish it or where, other than my newly created "Buy Me A Cup of Coffee" or whatever thing.
I hope all of you are keeping well and staying safe!
/chuckle Still getting messages with regards to my stories and writing in general and... I am just so very thankful for all of them, really :) However, I'm still at the point I was back in June of "No, I haven't written anything new or added to anything here or over on AO3 unfortunately"; I WILL DEFINITELY let all of you know when I do though, promise. At this point, I'm actually editing others' works for publishing, doing sub-titling for a couple of documentaries, continuing to scribble notes down for current *and* future stories on anything near - notepads, backs of envelopes - and trying to keep them somewhat organized so that I've actually got them when I need them, and reading, reading, reading.
All of you are just awesome for continuing to support me, no matter how few and far between, and that is just so... just wonderful :) If I ever get to the point of publishing something for sale, I hope to see many of you telling me what you think of it/them :)
Until later, I wish all of you the best, ask that you take care of yourself and continue to read (and write) because we all have a story to tell.
For all those still hoping for the Assaulted series (Essence of Colby Granger and ... anything else that hasn't been completed) to be completed, see below :)
Someone popped in with a question that several of you have asked and that's "are you ever going to finish this / these story / stories?" and this was my answer:
First, thank you so very much for the comments/feedback :) It's always very wonderful to get, especially when it's so very positive!
Second, I've actually not done much of any creative writing (I've done a variety of "regular writing" posts on FB) of late because I just haven't been motivated creative wise. However, as to the Assaulted series, ... I'm really... well... kinda stuck on writing the end - I mean, I know exactly what happens and I can even give you (all of you really) an outline so that you have, at least, *SOME* closure, but as to actually writing it... like I said, I'm kinda stuck.
Essence of Colby Granger? LOL that... if I remember correctly, shot off into a direction that just kind of went into sci-fi territory (X-Files route I think? considering I've never watched more than a few episodes, it must have been because of some fanfic I was reading) and has left the universe as it were LOL. I'll have to go back to it and see if there's some way of pulling it back into real world writing.
Third, I have also been trying to concentrate on original writing for actual real-life-money publishing. That's going as slowly as the fanfic/creative writing at the moment but... /shrug.
At any rate, like I said, thanks so very much for the comments/feedback. ... I'll see where my notes are for both stories and try to post something for them, just so people know that I'm alive but not actually writing at the moment.
For all those still hoping for the Assaulted series to be completed, don't give up hope! See below :)
A response to your review at https://www.fanfiction.net/r/5757608/
Thanks for the kudos :) Believe it or not, I'm trying to get back to my unfinished stories, this one in particular at the moment. I'm not at all certain I'll get to it finished before the end of next year (2016) but... I'll certainly keep you updated about it.
Thanks again for liking the story :)
Just hang in there if you're still checking in. And, if you are, WOW, thanks so much!! :D
As you may have guessed, the 'Assaulted series' and any other WIP I have here, is on hold for an indefinite period of time. If this were an actual book coming from an actual publication company and I was getting paid, RL would probably revolve around that. However, as it's *just* fanfic... RL has to come first.
Updated: 08/13/2011 (re: Assaulted series)
... As noted by one of my reviewers, it's sometimes hard to suspend disbelief of what the bad guy, Tim King, has done *and* gotten away with. As I responded to her, I completely and totally agree but this story started out as a one-shot that I just did not have a proper foundation build for for a lengthy fic.
I really, really just feel like going back and scrapping the whole thing and starting over... however, I'd feel incredibly bad for all of you readers who are and have been patiently waiting for the end of this thing! As it is, I'm feeling 'pressured' to give you the ending you want, but I just... I'm having difficulties not just starting with something like 'Almost three years later...' where I just do flashbacks of the highlights of what's happened in the interim.
Another is that I really don't want to do a lot of research for the subject of male rape and recovery or getting into why King is the way he is or how he managed to get by the FBI psychs with all of his issues and all the other stuff that is involved with the story.
So, if any of you are actually reading this... I guess I'm looking for some feedback on direction...
Again, thank you to all you wonderful people, I truly appreciate all of your comments and support!!!
Chapter 36/Epilogue -- This is the last chapter for this book of the series; I *will* be continuing the "Assaulted" series, I just need more time to get the above issues resolved.
Author's Notes re: the "Assaulted! series sequel" and the original one-shot:
First, this story has never really stayed on track but I did all I could to keep the muse interested and from abandoning this very meaty story so… For those who aren’t or weren’t happy with this work, I sincerely apologize. For those who’ve stuck with it, THANK YOU! SO MUCH for doing so as well as all of the positive feedback and comments as well as all the story alerts and for choosing this as a favorite story and me as an author.
Next, I’ve finally come up with a title for the “Assaulted! series sequel” but it will entail ‘chopping’ the current story up into different sections. To that end, I’ll wait until this next section is finished.
This story will continue to be as it is titled until complete, at which time, it will be deleted and then reposted into its new format – complete with title and all that jazz.
I also have a variety of plot bunnies running around and I may end up having to, at the very least, get some outlines for them done in order to get them to just back off /chuckle.
Again, I do have every intention of getting back to "Essence" as soon as I can get the muse back into the storyline
Thank you for all the story alerts, favorite stories, and author alerts everyone!! It really means a lot :)
Take care and be well :)
