  1. I just caught up with the latest chapter DK. Nicely done. I think you did a good job capturing the more seasoned and mature Shelby here. She'll wait and bide her time for now--Hobson, Rodenko, Bateson, her grandfather and the war have seasoned her quite a bit. However, once she finds her opening, I pity Grace and especially Laxx...
  2. Very nice indeed! I wish I could do photomanips half as good as that! Also, I'm glad that you and your stories are getting the recognition you and they so richly deserve. You're an excellent writer and I'm glad to see that more and more people are seeing that. Here's to even more good things in the future!
  3. Thanks! I really do appreciate your comments as well as the support from my fellow UT writers--they really are helping me in my efforts to push off these bouts of depression I've been dealing which, combined with work and real life obligations, have really put a damper on my writing. Hopefully, with Spring Break here, I can get back into the saddle and get some words on electronic paper! Thanks again!
  4. I definitely have to swing by and read it. Spring break now so hopefully I'll be doing some reading and writing this week--although I've got some rough drafts from my students I have to read (shuddering in fear) and I have to write up exams. We've found a good place to take my mother for daytrips a couple of days a week--she's getting a chance to meet new friends and do things. I'm just hoping I can find my writing muse again...
  5. Thank you for your kind words--they really cheered me up after what has been a pretty tough time for me. I'm sorry I haven't been writing as much as I'd like, but between work, caring for my mother, and my own health issues, I've been in and out of a depressed state and writing has been difficult for me. Hopefully soon things will pick up though and I'll be back in the saddle again. It's encouragement from readers such as yourself as well as my fellow UT writers that keeps the fire burning inside me. THANK YOU!!
  6. I hope everything works out ok for you CeJay. I know what you mean about needing some time off--I'm sort of doing the same thing now. Come back when you're ready--you'll always have a place here and keep in touch with us. When you're ready to come back, we'll be here.
  7. I'll give it--and all the other stories I'm behind on--a read this weekend--now that the semester is officially over with! (Actually, I have about 7 papers left to grade and then enter in final grades on one more course to be officially done--but I've already started my catchup on reading and writing) Of course, I'm also smoking a Boston butt roast this weekend--making some North Carolina style pulled pork--low sodium BBQ--yes, folks, it can be done--and it can be very tasty too!
  8. I like the minor canon characters too for much of the same reasons CeJay does--you still have plenty of room to flesh them out in or even take them in somewhat unorthodox directions--something you really can't do with major canon characters. Still, every once in awhile you need to use a major character. Hopefully, now that I'm beginning to be able to get back into writing as this semester comes to a close, once I get caught up on my stories, I'd like to do some crossing over--but right now, catching up on both reading and writing is the big thing--and that includes catching up on your stories mirandafave--I'm looking forward to getting back to reading your work.
  9. A sharp opening. I like CeJay's notion of writing the story from Easton's point of view--that would give a different perspective on the ship and its crew. Good to see that you're working your way through your writer's block. Now, if I can only work through mine...
  10. I understand what you mean, D'Noth. Take care of what you have to take care of--we'll be here when you return.
  11. Sam, please don't forget when you finish your updates to send them over to me so that I can put them up on the main site.
  12. Welcome! Just dive on in and have fun!
  13. I don't have photoshop, instead, I have Corel's Paint Shop Pro Photo x2. Is it possible for me to learn how to do covers using that program or am I going to have to go the Adobe Photoshop/Elements route?
  14. Right now, Michael's stories are in a bit of a limbo because of server issues on his old site. Hopefully, that'll get straightened out soon and people will be able to read Michael's stories again.
  15. Glad to help. Just let us know what's confusing you right now and we'll be glad to walk you through it. Michael writes Full Speed Ahead, which is a most excellent series with some very vibrant characters.
