You said you wanted some eta...

What do you mean, you didn't want the Greek letter?

Huh? I don't understand Greek, so I hope he meant when will I arrive at the emergency room. Squad 51, what is your ETA? Rampart. this is Guage, our ETA is 27 minutes.

Chapter 26 will arrive when everybody sends me a message bugging me to hurry up.

Seriously, it's been in the works since the last one was posted, but I'm working on a couple of short stories. I know, I feel like I'm cheating on Potential, but sometimes I need to write short stories that don't require things to line up with the character's character. If I want two guys to fuck and blow a load on the one guy's sleeping thirteen-year-old sister, that's fine. I finished that one today. I have a very short story to rewrite in first person tomorrow and then I'll be fulltime on 26.

I do appreciate the patience of those who have stayed with me, and I promise you, I want to finish this story more than you want to read it. I've had Evan, Darlene, Candy, Gloria, Jason, John, Sally and the rest walking around in my head for 6 years. I need to find new people to hang out with.

I'm well aware of what an ETA is.  (And points for using an Emergency! reference).

It was a subtle comment about how asking an author this question is considered rude.

I was sure you knew what ETA was, but I couldn't resist breaking out some TV show references. Roger, Adam 12, out.

Hey, thanks for asking. It reminds me that I have to keep working on the story. Sometimes I think nobody is reading, and I lose motivation.
As far as chapter 26, I have to be honest, the last two months have been nuts with computer issues on top of life stuff. I have worked on the chapter on and off, but it's been really hard to get going again. I got a new computer and I'm about 80% through the process of getting it ready to use.
I'm going to start cracking the whip and will give you an update once I have an idea of how much more there is today. The scenes in chapter 26 are deep emotional stuff that has to be done right, so I can't rush it.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

No problem, I respect the process and greatly appreciate all the work you put in. Take your time, I'm sure it will be an awesome chapter. Thanks for the update!

That's great to hear. It means I'm taking the ideas from my head and getting them out the way I hope. That is the part I struggle most with. Sometimes I'll live a scene in my head for days or weeks, then write it three or four times before it feels right. This next chapter will be less sex and more emotion and story stuff.

That’s fucking cruel. I see that 26 is posted last night, but when I come back today to read it, it’s gone. What happened?

You did not.  You told me it posted twice and I told you to delete one.  I never said to delete BOTH!
:-P

Anyone can write about putting tab A into slot B... LOL But doing that in a descriptive manner, setting the scene, and making it believable show the true Talent of the writer. This is the first story from you that I've read and I must say I am impressed! Keep up the great work...

as always

Hey, thanks for checking in. This author loves to know that someone is out there waiting. That motivated me. Chapter 27 was going along nicely, then I started rethinking a few things, which is a good thing, and I'll need to go back and make some changes. Writing a story like this over an extended period of time presents many challenges, staying motivated is one, but more importantly, my moods change from day to day and those shifts tend to creep into my the character's lives. For example, I might be in the mood for some kinky sex, so Evan fucks Jason's mother. Then I realize that shouldn't or couldn't have happened in the context of the story, so I have to go back and fix such things.

I do appreciate your patience and even your impatience. I'm working away the moments that make up my dull day, but it'll likely be a couple more weeks. I'm taking a course and working on a memoir, so time is tight, but I've also procrastinated, and that does not make me a happy writer. mad

Indeed that would not have fit the story unless it was a dream of either Evan or Jason's mom.

Glad to read that you're still working on it . It's one of the best stories here (with Eric's WoodWard saga) and it would have sadden me a lot to learn that it was on hiatus.

I don't post often(that may even be my first post on your corner of the forum, I don't even remember ^^") but do know that I love your work and find it hard to wait for the next chapter every time.

I have a small request : Would it be possible to have a chart with every character, showing how they are related when you have the time( and the will) ? Not so much about main characters but more about the side ones like KK .

Anyway, good luck with your work !

You know, that would be something good to have. I know some authors create one of those so they don't forget what the characters look like. I which I would have done that. It would save me time when I have to go back and find some details about them. I do have a chapter chart that I update at the end of each chapter so I know what happened when.

I'll think about that. I'd just have to make sure I don't give anything away that you shouldn't know yet.

Thanks for dropping in over here to message me and for the awesome compliment.

That would be awesome if you can.
Personnaly I do the same, I'm no experienced writer but I do make a character chart too for my  projects( RPG and visual novel).

I'm a student with a really tight schedule, but I'll try to find the time to post if it can support you in any way.

Can't wait for chapter 27! ( Well Eric just released a chapter of WoodWard so it will make the wait easier xD).
