    Preemptive Maneuvers

    I figured that since I'm so eager to run my mouth about UT business, I should at least take the time to update my own thread. Just saying. So, there will be a bit more of a delay before work resumes on the rewrite of "Preemptive Maneuvers". The next chapter should go up at Trekbbs sometime in the next few months. The delay is mostly due to the impending launch of my novel---an original work that I've been cobbling together for the last several years. Delivery is now only a few weeks away and I'm at the point of doing some last financial housekeeping chores that are required before I put it up at Amazon. So PM will be delayed somewhat, but as excuses go, I guess this isn't the worst one to have. While this forum is really for my fan fic work, I'll still post an announcement here with links when the time comes. There will also be a synopsis. The theme is superhero fantasy with a supernatural flavor.

    Cold Comfort is up the Trek BBS now and I'll have it up on Ad Astra and send it to Cejay for inclusion here as well. Hope everyone enjoys it.

    Plebe Year

    The first new Sutherland Plebe Year is up now as a downloadable .pdf file through the link here and on Trek BBS and Ad Astra. It looks a little bit at Liz's childhood and at her freshman year at the Academy.

    So, obviously we got caught up in the editing phase, and then life happened. I changed jobs and AJ's life has changed significantly since then. But we've been talking about finishing this thing and getting it out there for everyone to read MDg

    The extended hiatus continues . . . "I'm not dead yet!" - Soon to be dead guy from Monty Python and the Holy Grail "Nothing happened. After a few moments, nothing continued to happen." - Douglas Adams It's been an interesting couple of years; we had both my father-in-law and my father in our home under hospice care during that period. My FIL passed about 18 months ago and my father passed on January 4 of this year. The family is doing well but we're still busy dealing with personal effects, selling Dad's house, etc. Apparently, writing is not like riding a bike. More like falling off of one. When you get away from writing (and vice-versa), it's easy to become gun shy. I've ideas a-plenty but nothing is flowing from the gray matter to the little computer screen. I've gone back and re-read some of the orphan stories that languish on the Trek BBS. Some are worth salvaging and completing. With others, I have searched (without success) for the delete button. I need to catch up on reading your stories also. I'm WAAAY behind! All that to say, I am doing well and will write again at some point. If any of you want to borrow characters from the Bluefin, please feel free. I think they're getting bored, sitting around the old cutter with nothing to do. TLR

    Hey man, good to hear you are doing well all things considering. The beauty of writing fan fic is that we can step away from it anytime and also come back whenever we rediscover that elusive muse, as a number of us have demonstrated over the years and even very recently. Take your time and I'm sure one day, sooner or later, you'll be back to enriching the UT-verse with those terrific characters and stories of yours.

    Dark Territory Updates

    Hello everyone, Letting you know that I posted some new stuff, "The Four Years War Origins: Future's Past" over at TrekBBs. Hopefully I'll be able to finish TFYW: Year Zero, revise my TFYW: Year One stories, and we'll see about covering the rest of the war from that point on. I invite all to read and if letting me know what you think about the stories and the direction I'm taking the Four Year War concept in. If you have any suggestions let me know those as well. Thanks. https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/ut-the-four-years-war-origins-futures-past.292661/

    Reread the stories and the reviews you received. Sometimes that old encouragement is helpful to getting your warp core back online and powering the ol' coils. MDg

    Long Time No See

    It's been a long time since I've posted and seen most of you, but some big things happened in my life that I should tell you about which explains why you haven't heard from me and why I haven't been writing. First, my mother suffered from Alzheimer's through most of the 2010's. As her condition worsened, I had to take on a greater role as caregiver until I and my family could no longer give her the proper care she needed and we had to place her in extended care. Me and my mother were very close and when she passed away in 2015, I spiraled down into a very deep and dark depression where I didn't really so much live, as exist. It was a very dark and painful time for me and really only recently ended. Last year at about this time, I passed out during a cardiac stress test and was rushed to the hospital where they had to perform a double coronary bypass and had a heart valve replaced. They had to perform surgery on me twice as they had to stop some internal bleeding. I nearly didn't make it through. It took me the better part of 2017 to recover from my surgery, but during that time, thanks to the love of family and friends, I got better. Now, I've dropped 70 pounds from last year and my depression is history. I've come to terms with the loss of my mother and I've found that my creative energies have been restored. If my friends at United Trek would have me back, I'd love to finish the stories I'm doing. Right now, I'm working on "Blood Cries" and I think everyone will like the ending of that story. I look forward to reading and sharing with everyone once again and to those who enjoyed reading about our wayward captain Liz and all her friends, well, if you'll have me, she's baaaaaack!

    Absent Friends

    Just posted Absent Friends up on Trek BBS and will get it up on Ad Astra probably tomorrow. I've cleaned up grammatical errors and have added some new stuff, so Cejay, I'll send you over a .docx attachment tomorrow as well. Cold Comfort should be up in a day or so as well. Feels good to be writing again.

    This is one helluva an epic you've got going. I'm really enjoying not just the scope, but also the characterizations: Edison, Taman/Vashta, Marcella, Penda Dryer and so many more. Strong plot involving not just a wide span in years, but also time travel, multiple universes and dimensions. Great stuff
