New Chapter - What It Was

Hi friends,
here is anonther Monday and another chapter.
I hope you are still with me and enjoying the story. I know it focuses a lot on Jordan's addiction now but I also hope it is still a dev story for you and gives you enough about Shay and how she feels about Jordan.
I have not been well this week and dealing with some stuff and I worked all weekend but I edited over the chapter as good as I could.
This week I will be going to California for a few days so I am not sure how I will get around to next week's chapter. I may have to skip next week.
Anyways, I hope this finds everyone well and having a good start of the week.
Here is Chapter 14 of What It Was.
Please let me know what you think, I would appreciate it so much.
Hugs,
Dani

Shadowboxing will be back next Wednesday

Hello, all -

Somewhat embarrassedly, I return! It's been well over a year since I last posted - in 2018, I got overwhelmed with both professional and personal events (luckily mostly positive ones). I am very touched and a little flustered that people even posted comments in the meantime asking when Shadowboxing would continue. As always, cheers to everyone who hangs out here, and to Lee & DG for hosting the blog.

Next Wednesday, I'll pick back up with Chapter 14. There are only a few chapters left, but they're long, so I'll post some in parts so as to spread things out.

If you'd like to catch up on what came before... Shadowboxing is a moody, slice-of-life-y gay romance featuring Asher, a sensitive soul who has cerebral palsy, and Roy, a loner with a stutter:

Shadowboxing: Chapter 13 (last post)

While I was previously agonizing over finishing Shadowboxing, I posted "The Nerve Interpreter," a 3-part short story also featuring a protagonist with CP. It's likewise moody and romantic in tone, though not an outright romance; the story focuses more on the protagonist's relationship with his disability, and on an imagined (science fictional) assistive technology. You can check that out here:

The Nerve Interpreter

Thank you again for all the support. See you next week!

New Chapter - What It Was

Hi friends,🌻
happy Monday, happy October, happy fall! 🍂☔🍂☔
Fall is my favorite season of the year, I like the melancholy and the change of season into a quiet, fading state, bringing things into perspective I think. I know most of my stories are taking place in the fall.
Anyways, last week I was struggling a bit with the chapter but I hope you guys were still okay with it. This week Shay and Jordan are getting a lot closer still.
Thank you to everyone still reading along and for your comments. It means so much to me.
Here is Chapter 13 of What It Was.
Let me know what you think and have a wonderful week,
Hugs, Dani 💟

Update to Not Gay

Hi everyone,

This is Chapter 6 of Not Gay for you! Hope it's to your liking :D Thanks for your comments and support of this story so far, you definitely make me want to continue writing. I'm doing my best, but I guess updates every two weeks is the most I can manage right now. So... keep your eyes open every other week from now on.

Have an awesome weekend,
Lovis

New Chapter - What It Was

Hi friends of "What It Was", 💚♿💚
how is everyone doing?
Phew, I had a bit a rough week, I have been crazy busy at work but also kind of sick.
I did my best to make time to look over this chapter last week.

I have to say, I struggled this week for some reason. I had to correct lots of grammar or sentence structures and every time I read over the chapter I found something else. I seemingly read over it like a hundred times and tonight I worked on it once again to get it ready for you. I really hope it came out right.

Thank you for the feedback I got last week, I did reply to it. I appreciated it so much, I loved reading it. Yes Jordan and Shay are all but "normal" and their relationship is not conventional but I hope to make it happen for them and also for my readers.

They are in the very beginning of their relationship, a long road lies ahead and it will get rough. Someone had commented that addiction can't be "cured" miraculously...it definitely can not and it's very difficult and painful for everyone involved.
Hopefully you won't tire to follow along. I feel like my stories are sometimes very long and move slow but I want to try to capture as much of the characters as possible and how I imagine them in conversation and exchange. I hope to keep it interesting for you.

Anyways, thank you to all my readers and for all your comments. I love to read how you feel about the story. And if it actually makes you feel things, that's the best compliment an author can get.

Here is Chapter 12 of "What It Was".
Enjoy and have a wonderful week,

Hugs, Dani   🍂🎃🍂🎃

No update to Not Gay

Sorry, guys! Based on my current editing/writing progress and the prospect of near to no internet access the rest of the week, I can already schedule this post now (i.e., a few days ago) to say there won't be any new chapter of Not Gay today. Check in again next week!

New chapter - What It Was

Hi friends, 💖
hope everyone had a wonderful week.
Here is another Monday and I am giving you another chapter of "What It Was".
Thank you to everyone reading this story and for the sweet feedback last week. I was especially happy how one reader commented on catching the "what it was" terminology in that chapter, referring to Shay and what it was that attracted her to Jordan.
I hope you still like to follow along with Shay and Jordan.
Sometimes I feel my stories are just so bleak and then I edit and think about rewriting something because I think about my readers and I want to make them happy.
But then I also realize that I need to be true to myself and write what moves me and in return hope my readers feel the same way.
So with that I give you Chapter 11 of What It Was. Enjoy as some more aspects of Jordan's health are revealed and how Shay and Jordan are getting closer. 💑
As I am typing this I'm about to get ready to head to a Rock Concert, so I wanted to get this posted before I left.
Have a wonderful week everyone,
Hugs, Dani 👋
