That is one of the issues now that you mention it(Sex scenes). There's sex... but it doesn't really seem to be going anywhere. All the idea's and thoughts just kinda bounce off each other and stay in the same box. I'll probably let my donator status laps for a bit and use that as an excuse to let the time go by. But i may just be impatient. As Eric said, the story line can progress without the sex. I know that is mainly the story line but it's not the entire story.

I do ask for and seriously consider feedback, and I thank you for it. I don't think you are being impatient, especially now. I have been taking longer to produce chapters, and, like a snowball effect, that has caused people to give less feedback which has caused me to be less motivated and take even longer, and so on.

I hope you won't make any decisions based on the last chapter. Yes, it might have seemed like there wasn't much going on there, and it was mostly sex scenes with seemingly little else, but that's not true. It is, but it's not. Let me explain. As someone once said, "If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it's not going to be fired, it shouldn't be hanging there." There were rifles and they will be fired. In every one of those scenes, something important happened. It might have been a minute detail that some readers won't notice or care about, but as the author, I know already what is going to happen, and if I didn't care about being a good author, I would make things happen anytime I wished with little or no justification. I can't do that. Oh, I want to. I read sex stories all the time, and the brother walks in the room and his sister is in her panties, he gets a boner and they fuck. Damn it, I wish I could be satisfied with that. I'd be done with this story and have my life back. Nah, that's not why I do this.

I'm like you, and some other people who send me messages, the story is more important than the sex, and I often skim over sex scenes when I'm reading a story, but please remember that I started writing this story on a site named, Sex Stories. there are many who want more sex. They even suggest sex that would be completely out of character for the characters. I have to balance all of that with what I need to happen so that I can bring these characters lives to a place where they can die or live happily ever after.

None of that is your problem; it's mine because I took on this responsibility. I am sorry it's been taking so long for the chapters. That's discouraging for me, but I've been working on Potential for at least six years and sometimes I need to write other stuff that comes to a quick end. That's why I've been writing for those contests on Wrist and posting some short shit on sites where nobody cares if you proofread it as long as someone is getting fucked in the ass.

I hope you'll continue to read stuff on this site because the authors who post here give a shit about what they are producing. They're giving their time, effort and a part of themselves so others can read stories. Come back to Potential after a few chapters and maybe you'll think, Oh, he did shoot that gun I saw in chapter 25!

Of course, that advice ignores the fact that, maybe the gun is just a decoration, and you're being descriptive, but hey, what the hell.

This chapter is a good start to a series. There are a couple of areas that are worded in a way that is confusing but it only takes a second to understand what I am reading. I believe I will enjoy reading this series.

Thanks. I hope you continue to enjoy the story. Sometimes wording is style and sometimes they are the author's brain fart. If the latter, oops, sorry

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.

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
