Leigh Anne - Chapter 11

I read a comment at the end of Leigh Anne - Chapter 11 that said this chapter needed to be reformatted so that the reader could read it either on Internet Explorer or Firefox. I don't use any of these. I use Google Chrome. Now after looking at this chapter I find it has been reformatted. I know this because the lines are shorter. I am sorry if I offend anyone, but, I write like I do for a reason, which to date, nobody has said they finally figured it out.

The continuing stories of ...

Hi everybody. I don't have a computer right now, and I am using my daughter's. The problem is, I don't see a wordpad or any other writing format I can use to continue my stories. She is using Windows 7. So, to everybody who reads my stories, please be patient until I can get this sorted out.

Hugs,
Barbara

Serial chapter missing.

I posted Part 3 of my story The Accident, and now I can't find it anywhere. What happened to The Accident - Part 3 that I posted earlier? I cannot repost it without writing it over, and now there is no train of thought for Part 4. Will somebody please tell me what happened to my post?

About Leigh Anne

I was just thinking about my story Leigh Anne. What if I could somehow make her chromosomes very, very unusual? Like maybe, YXXX, or XXYX, or even XXXY? I need to do a little research to see if maybe that is even plausible. It would explain Leigh Anne's circumstances.

People Have no faith.

After reading several things about the fanatical religious right, I come to the conclusion that these so-called Christians are the false prophets Jesus talked about that will come in His name. Sodom was not destroyed because the people there had same sex relationships, but because they were lustful about it. There are 10 laws of God we are commanded to obey. These 10 laws are called the Ten Commandments. Things other than the 10 Commandments are from the secular laws of the time and incorporated in to the book we call the holy Bible to make the common people think they are the word of God.

Can anybody tell me why

Can anybody tell me why it is, that when I click on a story name, I get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"? I thought maybe it was just one story, but I have tried clicking on them all that I could see on the main page, and I get the same thing for each story.

Dizzy! I'm so dizzy, my head is spinnin'

I just have to say this, and I can't resist any longer. In Part 9 of The Girl Most Likely To ... there is a couple of comments about the story being fast paced, almost warp speed.

Well, the way these other stories are being posted must be faster than that because Part 10 was posted earlier today and already is on page 4. I mean, that is faster than war speed.

Love & hugs,

The Girl Most Likely To ...

Everybody is surprised to see a "change" in Rachel. But if you remember in the first part, when Renée and Sandi were passing the door marked Principal, they heard crying from inside. That is all I am going to say without giving the whole story away. Thank you all for reading and commenting, it is greatly appreciated.

Love & hugs,

The Protest

While I realize that the size of the penis is important to some men, I know men who are men that don't really care. Yet, they seem to have a very good relationship with their spouses. It appears that in a lot of stories, tg as well as mainstream stories where sex is mentioned, men in these stories don't seem to function well if they're penis isn't long, thick and throbbing. I don't know what it is with this because I have never had to live this way until my teen years and even then I didn't act like the boy they wanted me to. But this is all water under the bridge right now.

I am so sorry everyone...

To Those that have left comments for Kira - Chapter 17

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Kira still has a ways to go yet. Chapter 18 is about the gown fitings and the wedding as well as the block party that will follow. I can't just say there is going to be a wedding and gown fittings without actually writing it in; that would be a serious breach of my responsibility as an author of transgendered stories. Now, I may have said this before, but sometimes even I am surprised by how a chapter turns out, and I will no doubt be surprised by chapter 18 too.

The new code system for leaving comments.

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

I don't know why this coding thing started just to leave a comment on someone's story, but it is very stressful because when you enter the right code it says you have entered it wrongly. That is pure BS! We have done very well over the years without a coding thing, and we don't need it now.

The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

In the 1969 the United States Congress enacted legisdlation making it legal for 18 year olds to buy, possess, and drink alcohol. This legislation would be in effect until the Reagan Administration's The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 was passed. for more information about what the Alcohol laws were before 1969, please go to a university law library and look at those statutes or if you live in a state capitol, go to the capitol law library. Even Wikipedia says that in the Reagan administration the law was passed declaring 21 to be the minimum drinking age.

A Lesson Learned.

Some of you who have read A Lesson Learned want me to continue the story. I am sorry but this is a stand alone story about what lessons are learned when a parent doesn't listen or see the obvous sign in front of him or her. There will be no more chapters for this story.

When pantyhose was first introduced.

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Here is a very brief history of when seamed pantyhose was first introduced in the United States. Maybe people who leave comments about stories should do their research first. And yes they did have seamed pantyhose in 1961. The seamless pantyhose is what was first introduced with the introduction of the min-skirt. I know how to do my research. Does anyone else? Sorry Stanman and Gabi...but your comment that you left to my story So You Want To Be A Girl, Do You, was only partly right.

A Girl With "Extra" Bits

I read a lot of transgendered stories where the TG protagonist is referred as a "girl with extra bits". So okay, we have this disgusting thing between our legs, that have two small ping pong balls behind it. Then, most of us have these dumb old ping pong balls removed and we are left with what has been referred to as an "extra" bit.

Father Just Doesn't Get It

I wasn't going to write another chapter in Father Just Doesn't Get It, but with all the nice comments I got, I decided to write another chapter. If anybody wants to read more about Joanne's journey into girlhood, just say so in your comments at the end of the story.

Comment notification

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

It is like I said, I have been actually on this site since 2002, and in that time I have not seen a comment notification like I have on other writing sites. Of course we aren't just another pretty face, LOL, but still, when somebody new leaves a comment on something we have written, we should at least be made aware of that.

My Stories

Every now and then I re-read some of the comments to my stories as well as the stories to see if I might be able to add anything. What I notice is a pattern to all comments, whether they are for my stories or someone else's, and that is this. Several people pick out a part of the story and only comment on that, others comment on the whole story, and still others like to nit pick about this or that, and it has nothing to do with the story.

CHRISSIE

My novel Chrissie is now in e-book format. Xlibris hasn't told me if it is online yet or not, but it is in e-book format. If you know how to look for it, it should be there, because I was told it takes 24 to 48 hours to get it online. They haven't told me the site(s) yet, but I am waiting. I am going to see if I can get it into an audio book also, but that will be a while yet. Thank you in advance for your interest.

Love & hugs,
Barbara

Jillian Marie wrote a very short story called Inventing Me. In my comment I said I had written a poem called The Sum Of All Of Me...actually the name of the poem is I Am The Sum Of All Of Me, and fits right into Jillian's story theme. I wrote this poem in 2006, after a lot of turmoil went through me and finally I couldn't hold these thoughts back anymore. I thought I would share The Sum Of All Of Me with you. I think we can all identify with my chosen words. Thank you, Barbara.

Comments on stories not yet complete

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

There are some things I have to say because I see people drawing conclusions on stories that are not completed. The first part of a story sets up the characters and the plot, and the second part sets up how the characters interact with each other, and the third part just goes with the plot full force. But to draw a conclusion in a comment before the story is finished is like a newspaper reporter making up his/her own story because he can't get an interview; like in Football Girl. But there are reporters in real life who actually do do that.

Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Here is the Wikipedia condensed version of what AIS, PAIS, and CAIS are, and depending on what authority you read or which case studies, AIS sufferers are scientifically classed as female because of the amount of estrogens in their bodies, regardless of the XY chromosomes or male testicles. The testes produce way too much testosterone in AIS sufferers that by some quirk of fate, it turns into estrogen. You are free to draw your own conclusions.

Am I the only one?

Author: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Am I the only one reading Murphey's Law (Revised)? I have never read the original story, but to me this story has all of the elements that makes a great mystery. I have compared this story to the ones written by Dashiell Hammett and Agatha Christie. This whodunit takes place in the 1960's and is a very good story. Everybody who hasn't read the original should read this one, because Murder She Wrote has nothing over Murphy's Law (Revised). And even the ones who read the original story should read this one again.

Love & hugs,
Barbara
