Okay, who wants the first shot? My hand needs to be slapped.
I've been a bad Momma.
I was rather overwhelmed with the response I got with MNT. Wow. Off To The Meat Market's first chapter got 17 reviews. Maybe Next Time? 21. And there are still some stragglers out there. I am humbled. Technically, I've written the outline of the upcoming 2 chapters, where Tristin and Rory go out and search for the first item and the eventual thawing between the two. Logan's not liking it! Whee!
See? This is why I say I'm bad. MNT is two weeks old and has been updated as fast as Meatmarket. But my other two babies? Still on hold. I knew Dueling was going to be hurting since I can't find my original manuscript and I have to recall how it went so that it reflects what I still wrote years ago. The dialogue had definitely changed and some of the pop culture references had been taken out or replaced. It's sad that the feeling I had when I wrote it the first time around is now gone. The struggle is harder than I thought.
"Tell Her This", which is my favorite is not as popular as the rest of the Trorys since (as a reviewer wrote) I was writing a story for the fogies. Fogies? God, I didn't know that a thirty something character cannot be entertaining to a teen/twenty-ish person. The next chapter to this will actually revolve around Chris and Lorelai and what's going to happen to them when Lorelai's finally married to Luke. Thinking about it makes me cry (especially for Chris. I'm a sucker for his character).
I know Katherine is still boycotting MNT but I'm trying to charm her to give it a chance. You think I can buy her reading time with a chocolate bar? Cheetos? Strawberries and cream?
Anywhoo, someone force me to write out the following chappies to DT and THT. I will be eternally grateful.
