Location: What kind of question is that? At my computer, silly!
My resolution for this year was to finish at least half of the ff I have that are currently classified as a WIP. That won’t be happening.

I have been working on SS for about three years this summer, the story is currently three chapters long and I just can’t do it anymore. Emotionally, I just don’t have it in me. I have ideas for where I want it to go, but I don’t think I’ll be able to get it there.

However, I am passing this piece on to a young someone near and dear to me. She is the daughter of a survivor and a few years older than Jaclyn is in the story. I have faith that she will be able to bring the story justice. She is a very talented writer for comps and essays, but she is insecure about her “creative” writing, so this will be perfect for her.

In a few days, I will be removing the chapters I posted, but keep an eye out for them in the future! Who knows? Maybe my wonderful step-cousin will knock this story out of the ballpark and decide to post on here or on FF.net or something. We’ll see.

Thanks for understanding.

Also, look for a new story here soon! And yes, it’s a one shot! ;-)

Sorry that you couldn't finish it yourself. :(

I don't guess everyone wants to draaaaag out a story for years like I do. :lol:

Here's hoping that this young lady will bring us something new with your story.
Any word, yet?

Any idea of when you'll add another?

Oh, don't be. I kinda just jumped into without any idea as to where I wanted t go with it. I think this is for the best.

Yes, I'm a better person than you. I won't make my readers suffer and wait and wait for new chapters! Hahaha! Kidding of course!

No word yet, but I made her promise to send me it once she gets going. I really think she will be able to finish this and do cancer victims and their families justice. She graduates this year and then plans to pursue a medical career, so I really think she will be able to bring a fresh perspective to the story.

When will I add another? Soon I hope! Lots of real life events inspired me to write stories, but I never seem to have the chance. I really want to finish The Pursuit of Happiness, too. I have all the research for it, and I know exactly what I want to happen, but I haven't had the chance to actually sit and write it all out. Hopefully, that day with come soon. :)

Sadly, nothing has became of either of those two stories. Maybe someday I can get back into the POH. I really, really, would love to finish it.

Okay.

Here's hoping that you'll someday feel it's right for you to continue.

Thanks! I've been pondering what to do with The POH. It's become personal to me, and I really would like to finish. However, I'm thinking of a total re-write. The story line will have the same ideas but things would just happen differently. Here's hoping...

I say that if you want to do a re-write, go for it.

I'm doing that with FRI, and though it's a MAJOR task, I feel it's for the best, for the fans and for myself. FRI became a tangled mess and I lost interest in it for a long time out of frustration. :|

You can do it! Just do it on your own time, which means you'll have to ignore my nagging.
:lol:
