re-visiting an old story

Decided last month to take a few stories that had suffered from "I own the company and have to fill a hole for someone who dropped out" syndrome and re-write them.

This week I jumped into a fun, kinky historical called the High Class Highwayman. It just... ended. Mid-story. I clearly ran out of time at 21K and had to put it out when I had to put it out.

So I wiped the pseudo ending and started at 20K. I might get a novel length piece out of it, and I couldn't be more tickled.

It's good. It will be so much better as a whole story. I can't wait to delve into the whos and whys and then get the story out there. Spanking, sex, highwaymen, master criminals and secret bastard sons.


I do love it when reading an old story gets me something good!

Hey that's fantastic! I recently pulled out something old to see if I could edit into something I could submit. Because the one I was currently working on stalled out hopelessly :/

So here's to old works turned new <333
