Things have been pretty crazy lately and after a temporary increase in my writing output, this week has been dismal. I have, however, managed to update A Lustful Life. So get on over there and check it out. And vote!
So, after 13 responses, the focus priorites look like:
1. The Dark Room
2. Nikkirotica 3 - Teachers Tutors and Naughty Students
3. Part 2 of the Gymnast Story
4. Another installment in the Sleepwalker Diaries
5. Nikki's First Romance Book
6. The Sexy Sorcery School Tale.
Which is interesting because in terms of completion they probably look like this:
1. The Dark Room - 70%
2. Nikkirotica 3 - Teachers Tutors and Naughty Students - 17%
3. Part 2 of the Gymnast Story - 0%
4. Another installment in the Sleepwalker Diaries - 5%
5. Nikki's First Romance Book - 80%
6. The Sexy Sorcery School Tale. - 90%
So as much as I will take on board what people would like me to work on, the completion state drives some of this as well. I don't want things like my first Romance to sit there forever unfinished when I've put so much into it already. The same with the Sorcery Tale.
Anyway, it is interesting and ultimately I will get all of these works complete. The timing may change with the voting and I am leaving it open too. So if you haven't had your say,
There have been some interesting results to my request as to what I should be focussing on and Nikkirotica 3 has certainly been up amongst the lead so far. I have been working on it this week and have surprised myself. I seem to have managed to knock out about 12000 words in the first of the four planned stories to make up this compilation. Unlike Nikkirotica 1 and 2, these stories will be entirely new!
I thought you might like a little teaser:
Nancy turned to see Brad sitting in the seat that she'd intended to sit in. She had no reason to think anything of it and took the other seat. They quickly set about going through the math. Half an hour in she started to notice that Brad's attention was wandering. He was starting to spend more time looking at her and less time at the books. Productivity was way down. "Is it too hot Brad? you seem distracted." She was surprised to see him blush. 'Shit I've been busted.' Brad thought to himself. In the last 10 minutes, the sun had moved enough that he was once again being presented with that lovely silhouette. It was distracting him a lot. He couldn't help himself and had to keep peeking as if to inscribe the image on his retinae. "No, its ok, its hot, but well, I'll focus." Nancy stood up to get some more water for them. The back of her blouse was stuck to her skin with perspiration and she shook it to get some air flow. While she filled the water she undid the top button. She glanced down to check that she wasn't revealing anything more than she should and then returned to the table. She kept her eye on Brad, suspicious. Sure enough, whenever he thought she wasn't looking his eyes would flick to her chest. As suspected, she was the distraction. She wondered what she should do about it. How could she get him to focus without being obvious about knowing what the problem was? As he pondered his math problem, she pondered her moral one.
I thought I'd find some visual inspiration too ... I found some potential Nancy's. I might even post them at some point soon.
I was really disappointed when I googled "sexy male student in classroom" to find Brad to discovered just how crap the results were. It reminded me once again of how skewed this world is. Anyway for the boys (and the girls that like girls ...) ...
So I've been hitting the keys quite hard in the last couple of days and made progress on a number of fronts. As I've noted before in this blog, I tend to get distracted which means that I have a couple of things all working at once. That's great because things are moving but it doesn't give you anything fresh and juicy to read (other than the Lustful Life updates).
Thinking about this, I started to wonder what you, my most treasured and valued readers might actually prefer to see first. So I have a little survey for you. I'd really appreciate it if you'd take the time to complete it. It's really simple, there's only a single page to rank the 6 things that I currently have in the works.
I can't promise that they'll come out in the order that the survey tells me, but it might mean when I find a bit of time to myself to write that I take it into consideration when I decide what to work on!
Ok, so its been a while and I know I keep talking about certain projects, so i thought I might give a bit better indication of where things currently stand.
Shipwrecked - A romance: 32,200 words of a 50,000 word target
The Dark Room - 52,994 words of a 70,000 word target
Sorcery Story - 49,600 words of a 60,000 word target
Nikkirotica 3 - Teachers, Students etc .. concept only
