And Sometimes I Think of Holly

Ok here's the first 3 chapters. It's not scifi, so it may very well not be your cup of tea. And if it isn't or it's just plain awful just say so. I won't take it personally.

I don't know how you're supposed to ask a stranger to commit at least a year of their life to helping you write a novel, for free. That's how I did it. I don't know if this is a good way to go about it, all I can say is this is how I asked Holly Hart, and for some reason she said yes.

Hey folks. Ol' Krunch checking in. Being Christina Chase is finished and judging by the responses from my three fans, it looks like more people liked how it wrapped up than didn't.

So I'm gonna take a victory lap. Novel accomplished. Never doing that again. Story over. Thanks for reading. I hope you liked it. If anyone else wants to rewrite it, continue it, ignore it, etc, have at it.

Writing Tools

I use a lot of different editors depending on the job I'm doing. While I went through a number of writing tools, my main squeeze is, and has been for quite some time, Scrivener. Nothing is perfect, but this is as close as I've seen for writing long form fiction. I can't say I use it for anything else, but it nails writing novels. If you haven't been using Scrivener, you should try it.

Hey folks. Just a heads up. I'm not super terrific great about sharing information on the fate of one of the least popular stories on the site, so I'm trying to be a little bit better about it.

BCC Fan Fiction

Did you notice that someone wrote a BCC fan fiction?

Seriously, how cool is that? I mean, it's one thing to hear characters talking in your head, but it's a whole other thing to hear them talking in someone else's head.

That's a heck of a compliment. And in case anyone was wondering, I think its awesome. No one needs my permission to write anything.

So, I'm having a crappy day. As many of you may or may not know or care, I've been hard at work finishing off Being Christina Chase to please my three fans, even though two of them have given up all hope that the story will ever be finished.

Posting Resumes I Assume

Hey folks, Krunch here. I apologize for not getting content up sooner. I'm feeling much better, and thank you to everyone who's said nice things about me in spite of the fact that I've given you nothing to read lately. And to all of those who have been plotting against me, I will get you. Me or one of my loyals will get you.

A Note to my Three Fans

Howdy folks. I've been under the weather all week. That is to say, weather's been over me. I've been sick. Get it? Geeze.

Anywho, I will try to get the next chapter of Being Christina Chase up by tomorrow night, but I can't promise I'll get it in on time. It might come later in the weekend.

That's it!

Being Christina Chase ch 36

Author: 

A quick note to my three fans-

I apollogize for not having the new chapter up yet. An emergency situation required me to take an unplanned trip, and I have not had access to the Internet nor the time to make the posting. (this is being sent from my phone)

I should have ch 36 posted no later than tomorrow night.

That Whole Disappearing Chapter Thing

So as some of you may have noticed, Chapter 30 of Being Christina Chase was posted briefly yesterday, and then it disappeared. So basically, what went up accidentally yesterday was not the final draft of the chapter. I had in fact been making edits to the chapter yesterday afternoon to incorporate Holly Logan's changes and my own last minute brain aneurysms.

Six Months Out

So it was roughly six months ago when I first started posting Being Christina Chase, and the response has been pretty good. The story is slowly creeping up in the all time popular content list, and I get a good number of hits on every chapter. All in all, I have to think I'm doing pretty well for a first time writer. That said, Holly has done a great job of cleaning my stuff up.

Dominoes

So, I finally got around to posting chapter seven of Being Christina Chase, though a few days late. Even though this chapter has essentially been in the bag for probably a year or so, I made some last minute changes due to Holly Logan's invaluable feedback. It would have been on time had I not recently fallen irrationally and hopelessly in love and that I'd been traveling all weekend.

Chapter Length

Author: 

Chapter three of Being Christina Chase should be up. It's the first chapter that has any TG content. I talked it over with Holly, and she seems to think I sold the premise. Which is good, cause I went through a lot of trouble, and if you don't buy it, well, then I guess you just won't like the story too much. I think I've done a decent job of allowing the premise to happen. I buy the execution, though I'm not a crossdresser, nor am I transgendered. People are either going to take the leap with me or not at this point. I hope people like it. But, if they don't, well I dunno.

Circumstantial Exposition

Author: 

One thing that really burns my biscuits is Circumstantial Exposition. This is my name for when a sloppy writer wants his characters to act in a way that makes absolutely no sense, and they just drop in an explanation right along with the offending behavior.

For example:

And then, Billy decided to get into the car with the stranger. Did I mention that Billy was extremely trustful of strangers? Well he is. Cause he was raised in an orphanage in Ecuador where he lived with deaf mute monks. Since he couldn't speak with them, they were like strangers.

Being Christina Chase, Chapter 1 posted.

Author: 

So the first chapter of "Being Christina Chase" is posted. I'm not sure what the response is going to be considering that it's a chapter of a novel as opposed to a self-contained story. Also, it's pretty damned long, and there's no tg content to speak of. Not that there won't be any tg content, just not in the first chapter. I hope people like it; I know I sure as hell wouldn't read anything that long, But I digress...
