And you can think that. But she put herself through hell a while back when she had what, six or eight stories unfinished? She herself said she hated it and felt terrible about. So she set about finishing them. Almost made it too.
Then does it again. Dropped all her current stories and then started a new one.
Don't get me wrong, I think she is an exceptional writer. Actually, she is one of the very few female writers I will read. For me (as a man) she puts too much emotion in her stories which is what I usually dislike about most all female writers. But she writes soooooo well that I continue to read her work. And I'm subscribed to every story that she hasn't finished 'cause I wanna read 'em!
I love her as a writer. Doesn't mean she hasn't flaked out on us; she has. Did you think she was a saint and perfect in every way? I promise she knows better than that and so do I.
The story in this thread is (IMO) one of her best. I love it. Every time it emails me with a response and it's not her posting a new chapter breaks my heart. But there you go, that's life.
See, I don't think Kathy has flaked out on us. I think she has a family, a business and then writes when she can.
As a writer I get where she's coming from. Unless you sit your butt in a chair for 8 hours straight, the writing you do is going to ebb and flow. Many writers have multiple works in progress. I currently have two WIP shelved, one I'm working on and notes/research for two others. I often hit a wall with one and move to another one to let the one bothering me simmer for a while until my brain is ready to pick it back up.
One of the WIP I have would fit into this forum, but I wouldn't even think of posting it here until it was totally finished because I know my life has a way of entering chaos often. I'd hate to think that because I have a family, homeschool my kids, take care of my elderly parents and freelance for income that not posting updates to my story would get me labeled a flake.
Hope you will be finishing this Kathy. I found this a few days ago and have been reading constantly. I was a little surprised when it ended.
You are a hell of a writer, if you are wanting to sell it onlline, let me know, I would be willing to buy it.
