Outward Bound

Posted at

Today, I am posting the final two chapters of 'Outward Bound.' I must say that I have been pleased with the response that it has received. My original plan was to have the sequel for this story ready for posting. But the universe, being the cruel mistress that she is, had other plans. First was a major re-write of the story. Not just a paragraph here or there. Or even a new chapter. I found that I was going to have to basically write a new half of the story. And then adjust the rest of the story to fit the new parts.

BUT, the universe stepped in and, again, laid her hand on me. The first issue was a family member that I was taking care, started to decline, physically. In late August, My mother passed away. Needless to say my attention was needed elsewhere and my writing suffered. Then I had to go into the hospital for surgery. An abdominal embolism needed attention. BUT, trouble coming in threes, I have developed a cataract in my right eye. This has made writing difficult. Not impossible, just damned difficult. I will be having surgery later this month. With additional surgery later in the year.

SO, where does that leave us? I could continue on with my rewrite. given my personal policy of only posting completed stories, this would take a while before I can resume posting.

OR, I have a completed part of a series in the 'Regiment' universe. It's not nearly as lengthy as 'Outward Bound' But it is ready to go.

Hmmmmmm, Which way should I go?
