Author's Note: Posting Delays

I know I have been posting much less frequently than I did for the first few months of this blog and wanted to apologize for the delay.  I also want to let readers know that I am not abandoning this story.  The delay in posting has been due to a combination of factors -- a RL work schedule that became hectic, some other projects that have taken some time, and a bit of a block with the story's plot.

On the plot issues, I'm struggling with how to write Kim's surgery and recovery and with some of the developments concerning Andrew.  I was going to hold off posting anything until I figured out those issues, because it will be hard for the story to proceed without them.  However, I do have two completed scenes that I have not yet posted, so I am going to  post them this week.  My hope is that I can resolve the problems with the Kim and Andrew storylines and get back to posting on a more regular schedule, with an aim to post twice a week -- once midweek and once on a weekend.

I do thank you for reading and hope this delay will not discourage you from continuing with the story.

Thanks very much. My plan is definitely for a lot more chapters. How many, I'm not sure. But I've really just planned through everyone getting to Salem, and there is still a ways to go before we even get to that point. And that definitely won't be the end of the fic, but a bit of a jumping off point for several things.

So be patient and I hope you enjoy the ride.

Yay!
You are doing a such a great job developing the story and I understand how RL can be, so i'll be patient. Read the whole thing in about 3 days and of course I can't wait. The jeanie/kiriakis SL has me a little worried. I'm kind of having a hard time believing Kim would trust her to be anywhere around him, and caroline taking his side kind of makes me sick, but it's your story, so I guess I'll just have to trust you on it. :)
Thanks for doing this it really has been a nice read so far.

Re: Yay!
Thanks very much.

I struggled a bit with Kim's willingness to trust Jeannie being around Victor, but then I rewatched the Sean Brady funeral, where Caroline defended Victor. Obviously, Kim still hates Victor, but everyone else kept telling her that Victor had changed -- especially Caroline. So Kim has already been through that experience, and now she has: (1) her mom promising that Victor just wants to help Jeannie and won't work with her directly; and (2) Jeannie begging for the opportunity. That's a lot of pressure on Kim to give in and she also has to recognize that Jeannie is an adult. And even though we all know Kim should never trust Caroline's advice -- seriously, did Caroline ever give Kim a good piece of advice? -- Kim never seemed to figure that out.

I will say that Jeannie does have a lot of growing up to do, and there will be some twists and turns along the way. The one good thing about that plot is that for it, more than any of the other storylines, I have a pretty good sense of how it will end, and I think it should prove satisfying overall. For the other storylines -- Kim/Shane, John/Marlena, Bo/Hope, Andrew, etc. -- I have ideas that take me through various points in the overall story, but I have not completely figured out how they ultimately will be resolved.

So there is still a lot to develop and a long way to go. I am glad you're reading and hope you enjoy the rest of the story as much as you seem to have enjoyed the story so far.

Re: Yay!
yeah, caroline is not the one who should be giving out advice, that's for sure. LOL - As far as the story, if what you've written so far is any indication, I'm sure I won't be disappointed. Thank you again. :)

Oh good! I was starting to feel that this was going to be another fan fic story that I got hooked on only for it to never be completed. I totally understand the RL problem... don't we all have one?! I'm excited to see you posting again and can't wait to read your new chapters.
