I just received my first reader feedback e-mails and I am walking on cloud nine. This is the most amazing feeling. :) Anyway, I've added part III to The Vampire Hunter. Hope ya like it. I've also received several requests for an update list, so I'll be looking into getting something like that set up in the next few days. I'm just so totally stoked that people are interested enough in my stories to actually want to follow them. This is so cool. (Heh, I sound like a friggin' teenager, but really, I'm 24. :)) I've also archived February's updates. You can check them out at the link at the top of the page, until this gets archived, and then you'll need to go to the What's New page to use the link.
A few hours later...
Okay, that was sort of easier than I thought it would be. I am now a onelister. :) I seem to have no imagination when it comes to naming these things, but at least I'm consistent. The list is simply called kodiwolf. The sign-up button is listed on the Story Index page. I thought that was the most appropriate spot, so that I didn't inundate my site with little onelist buttons all over the place. It's an announcement list, meaning you can't post to it, and is for all my stories. Unless there is a huge demand to separate out the announcements for the different stories, they're all staying on one list (funny how that works - one list). Sorry, I'm hungry and I get weird when I'm hungry (witness this update post). Okay, I'll stop now. :)
Added chapter five of Lights of Life and updated the disclaimers for that story to reflect the addition of graphic sex that appears in the latest chapter. I also seem to have forgotten to mention that I posted an itty bitty essay in the nonfiction section about caves in fan fiction stories. It's barely a page long and I'm not real happy with how it reads, but I think it gets the idea across. Read at your own risk. :) One of these days I may go back and fix it, but right now I'm working on my take on the Rift (I liked it, contrary to popular opinion). I've also posted the finished version of Xena: Warrior Slave II. If you've already read what was posted so far, you may want to start at the beginning of the lunch scene to pick up the story thread again. Hope you like it. :)
I'm insane. I've come to this conclusion with certainty after all my waffling back and forth on 'am I or aren't I?' I say this because I've been awake since 6pm Friday night (March 3, 2000) and it is now 1:15pm Sunday afternoon (March 5, 2000). There's a point to this update, I promise. Okay, the reason I'm insane, besides the.. um, insane.. hours I'm keeping, is because I really truly planned to go to sleep around 11pm Saturday night (March 4, 2000), but then I didn't. I don't remember why, I just didn't. I was probably reading fan fiction. Yeah, I was. I remember, now. Anyway, I then signed off around 2am (I'm tired of writing the dates, figure it out for yourself) and somewhere in that time I was attacked by the muse, Erato. She grabbed me by the.. um, throat, yeah... and I started writing A Bondage Primer by 3am. I finished it, sort of, at about 12:30pm. (Um, from what I can tell, this story is going to be the start of a series and considering there are approximately 180 days in six months... Gods, I am soooo in trouble. :) You'll understand if you read the story.) I've just now finished updating this page as well as the Story Index and converting the friggin' story itself into an HTML page. I beg you not to judge me too harshly by this newest story. I really am not sane. Sleep deprivation has interesting effects on the brain. Blame it on Erato (Praise Erato!). Unless of course you actually like it and then I take full credit for the entire thing. :)
I've posted Chapter VIII of New Gaia and added a link to a great little story that my nonfiction essay on the cave phenomenon in fan fiction apparently inspired. It's called The Right Place and it's hilarious, while still making a very good commentary on what I discussed in my essay. You should definitely check it out, as well as the other stuff on her site.
Alright, I did a little minor renovation. I've added a site disclaimer to the home page, so no one gets caught unawares about what's on my site. I've also posted Chapter IV of The Vampire Hunter. And my big big news for the day? I won two XiPPY Awards!! I received one for The Vampire Hunter and one for Xena: Warrior Slave. Is that cool or what? :) Now I just gotta figure out where to put the trophies...
A few hours later...
Just added a little short vignette (how many different words can I use to mean small? :)) style piece to the Story Index titled The Kiss: Take Two. It came to me while my computer was rebooting from a freeze. Anyway, there's actually no sex (just kissing) in this one, so for those of you who thought I couldn't write anything else... nyah nyah. :)
I've updated Prisoner of War to basically complete (there's a completed scene, but it's left open for further encounters). If you've already read what I had posted before, I suggest starting from the beginning again. I didn't make any changes to the plotline (what little of it there is at the moment), but I did add a few things and change a couple words.
I've posted Chapter 6 of Lights of Life and Chapter 4 of Assassin. I also went through the three previously posted chapters of Assassin and corrected some spelling mistakes I found, but nothing else has changed, so there's no need to reread it, unless you just feel like it. Well, enjoy. :)
Okay, I've been a little busy. I've been going through and correcting spelling mistakes and grammatical faux pas in all my stories. I also noticed a really weird mistake my global word/phrase replacer tool made in X:WS, which I've fixed. But, I doubt any of you really care about that stuff. You just want the updates. Well, here it is. I've posted chapters IX and X of New Gaia. Hope you like 'em. :)
I also forgot to mention with my last updates that I've been invited to post my stories at The Bard's Corner (doin' happy dance :)) and The Uber Abode is now following Lights of Life, New Gaia, The Vampire Hunter, Assassin, and Prisoner of War. If you've been looking for printable versions of my stories, The Bard's Corner is probably your best bet for the time being. I'll get print friendly versions up on my site sooner or later, now that I know there's a need, but it might be a little while.
I've posted Part V of The Vampire Hunter. I've also updated the homonyms list with a few new entries for you bards (and anyone else who's interested in using the English language correctly). I also took down the non-working story links on my links page. The titles are still up, but you can't click on them to go get them (not that you could before either). Once I decide how I want to set it up (either e-mail the bards and ask for permission to host the stories on my site, or link to where they're already posted online), I'll reactivate the links. I also noticed I was using some of my warnings improperly on the Story Index page, so I fixed them.
Just posted a couple short pieces to keep the masses happy (or piss them off more, I don't know). I've got the opening scene of X:WS III up and a short interlude I wrote about a month or so ago that takes place in the middle of the episode A Tale of Two Muses, called The Silent Muse. I had to actually buckle down and do some web design for two of my clients, so I'm sorry I couldn't get more done. I'll have more for you voracious readers soon. :) Oh, and thanks for all the feedback on my homonyms page. I'll post the new stuff within the week (I hope).
Whew. Okay. I went to bed around 1pm yesterday after being up from the night before working on web stuff and the two short pieces I posted. Then my elderly neighbor woke me from a nightmare to ask me to go to the store for her around 6pm. I haven't had that particular kind of nightmare in over two years, and I'm not sure what triggered it, but it inspired me to write the next chapter of Assassin (it's basically the dream sequence in its entirety). It's... uh... rather graphic. And long. 23 pages. I just finished it a short while ago (it's 8:41am EST here).
I changed the disclaimers on the intro page, but in case you miss them, let me reiterate them here. There is GRAPHIC depictions of child abuse and rape. They are based on my personal experiences, so they are as realistic as I could possibly make them. If you happen to be a survivor, I urge you to think seriously before reading this. I know plenty of survivors that would be rather easily triggered into anxiety attacks by what I've described, but I feel it's necessary to the story (it's an integral part of the plot), so I won't be changing any of it. However, I do end on a sort of high note (I've introduced graphic sex into the story as well :)), so you will be rewarded for your perseverence. :)
I've added to A Bondage Primer (day 5) and I've updated the homonyms page with all the suggestions that everyone sent me and a few others I thought of as I was working on it. I've also decided on a new feedback policy in order to keep me on track with my writing. In a nutshell, I will only answer those e-mails that specifically request a response. After receiving nearly 20 e-mails in the space of a few hours, I realized there was no way I could reply to them all. In fact, if I had tried, I never would have gotten around to writing chapter 5 of Assassin; the muse would have left me by then (she's fickle, if you don't pay immediate attention to her). It doesn't mean I absolutely positively won't respond if you don't ask me to, but unless something really catches my attention, I will probably just enjoy the feedback, use it as best I can, and then go back to writing. That's what you really want from me anyway, right? (Ya'll are insatiable. It's great. :))
Happy Vernal Equinox! I think I took the spiritual meaning of it a little too seriously (let go of the old, embrace the new). I've posted Chapter XI and Chapter XII of New Gaia. I've also added three new sections and changed the navigational links on the bottoms of every page on the site to reflect this. The new sections are:
Printer Friendly Versions - The section is incomplete, but it has some of my stories available in a simple format that should make your printer happy.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions that I've decided to answer in one place, since everyone seems to have asked me at least one of these questions once.
Awards - This is the page where I get to show off my XIPPY Award. If I win other awards, they'll be added here.
I also added a link to the Feedback Policy page, so that it's easily accessible, no matter where you happen to be on my site.
I've posted Part VI of The Vampire Hunter and added printer friendly versions of it and Assassin. I also changed the little blurb for New Gaia. It seemed a lot of people shied away from reading it at first because of the synopsis and I'm hoping the new one helps encourage people to read it. Let me know if you like it, or think I should go back to the original blurb, or have a blurb of your own you think I might prefer.
Finally finished getting Chapter 7 of Lights of Life ready for everyone. I just couldn't find a good place to stop earlier, without it being a total cliffhanger, so it's 17 pages long. Oh, and don't expect any more updates, until probably Monday. I'm going to be helping my sister's mother-in-law learn how to use some of her computer programs (she's a little technophobic) over the weekend, so even though I'll still be writing (at least, I better be, I'm addicted to my word processor at this point), I won't be able to access my own computer for the uploading and everything. It's only for 3 days. :) Oh, and if you desperately need a response to an e-mail, make sure to send it to my Yahoo address, not the NetZero one. I won't be able to access my NetZero account, until I come back. Hope the latest chapter keeps ya'll happy 'til then. :)
Oh boy. Okay, I've posted Chapters XIII and XIV of New Gaia. I've also updated X:WS III with a few new scenes (12 pages worth) and fixed some badly written sentences in what was previously posted. I didn't get a chance to write while I was gone for the weekend, so when I came home, I sort of had to purge myself. Not that the craving to write has left me. I'm about to get to work on Assassin next, I think, and then TVH so it'll be ready by Thursday. TVH, not Assassin, though, who knows with the way I write? I also realized some of you may not have gotten my last announcement, so if you've been missing my e-mails in your inbox, go to the Story Index for more info on a possible reason why (it's underneath the join button).
I've posted Part VII of TVH and the Printer Friendly Versions section is now completely up to date. I was hoping to have the homonyms section ready for updating as well, but that didn't happen. Hopefully next time. Well, hope you like the latest installment. :)
