How Soon Is Too Soon?

So... inspiration!

I haven't had enough of this lately, but it seems to be in ample supply at the moment, and barring anything horrible happening within the next 24 hours I'm well on track to have the NEXT part of PFH ready to post either some time this afternoon, or tomorrow.

The question, then, is this: do you WANT me to go ahead and post it? Or, would you rather I wait until I finish the story?

It's funny how something can be right there in front of you, staring you in the face, and you can still ignore it somehow until someone points it out.

Why?

I know I have it better than most.

I'm not starving. I'm not on the verge of being homeless, at least, not any mor so than any other poverty-level individual in our current economy. I'm not under any particularly large amount of stress at the moment.

So why do I still feel so worthless?

I've been trying, I really have. Trying to dedicate myself to self improvement, or to projects I've committed myself to, but... I just....

That's where my student loans are sitting right now, with a total value of 3,184 dollars and a handful of cents. On the plus side, this is down from the near 10k I owed previously. On the downside, after having spent the day calling the various offices and figuring out what, if any, help I could get, the general consensus is that after so long they have little in the way of leniency for my debt, so forgiveness and/or lowered values are pretty much off the table.

A Quick Question

I'm thinking about trying to write a story for the Back To School competition, but all the responses to my idea for a PFH short and whether it would fit the rules basically came back "Sure! If you change everything you planned to do and write a completely different story that has nothing in common with your original idea."

Editors Untie! No, wait.... Editors Unite!

The site's been seeing a lot of requests for editors lately for stories, and I for one have to say that's a GREAT thing. It shows that more and more of our posters here are showing dedication to producing good quality work, and the site improves as a result.

The problem is FINDING editors. Whether it's just that they tend to be picky, busy, or nervous about offering to help non-established writers, a lot of times the editor request threads don't get a tremendous amount of response.

We here in the Closet don't often give our editors the credit they deserve publicly, and that's something that I'm hoping to correct here, not only because I feel she deserves it, but also because I think that there are a few of you who might appreciate how her work has helped me.

A question for our UK/EU members concerning electronics

I was reading up about obsolete electronics today, as I am wont to do, when I started looking into SCART connections. It specifies that these were primarily a European thing, and I've honestly never seen one in the US, but reading about them it's obvious they had superior video quality to anything available here in the US prior to component, though for the life of me I can't seem to find information on WHY they didn't pick up in the US.

So, anybody know why? I'd like to know, if just to sate my curiosity.

Whoo, what a slog this has been so far! Nevertheless, I'm only about 10 pages away from finishing Part 1 of the revamped "Oh, Cheers," or "Phoenix Soars!" as it will be called in its final Kindle release.

What started out as a 42k 3 part story is already at 33k so far, and diverging greatly from the source material. I'm literally at a point where, for parts 2 and 3, I'll be going through and making notes of a few key parts I want to keep, but for the most part both parts (as opposed to my initial plan for just part 3) will be almost entirely new material.

I'm in the final stages of prepping my collective book for sending to Katie to make sure it'll work as a Kindle eBook. In fact, give me another hour and the final rewrite of the final story will be complete!

On the other hand, there is one thing I need for it that I still don't have yet...

The cover.

I've decided on the title "Josie's Con Stories And Other Tales," but the cover design I want for it is based on "The Voice On The Line," consisting of a bouquet of yellow roses lying on a set of steps next to a cane.

A note of caution: this is a much, MUCH MUCH, darker piece than I typically write. I may even take it down eventually, and I'm definitely not linking it to the rest of my stories. So, be forewarned.

Part the last of the “Little By Little” saga (You Can't Always Get What You Want, Start Me Up, Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind)

This part is a lot shorter than the other three, more of a wrap-up to the series than anything.

As always, thanks and dedications to DallasF.
