New Beginnings Chapter 2

Hello readers,
Thursday again and I'm back with another chapter of my new story. First off I want to thank the readers who commented, it really means a lot to me.

I must admit I was hoping for more people to give me feedback since this was a first chapter of a brand new story and I am still nervous about it. Because the story is different for me in its POV, the characters, the setting, a mixture of reality, fiction, and fantasy and everything else, I would have liked to see what people actually think. I keep thinking "Oh God, I hope this will go over well"... I try to focus on the number of "hits" and just hope people like what they are reading but it's difficult with the "invisibility"...

I don't know about other writers, but putting a story on here takes courage for me, I'm nervous every week when I finally feel the chapter is ready and I dread overseeing mistakes or something in the story line that would be dumb. I sometimes reread and edit even after I post.

My last story was strange too with the whole nightly ordeals that my character went through and I was always worried that the story was too out there. I feel the same with this one and I sure hope "it will go over well." I wish I would have more confidence but I just don't have it. At the same time I want to share my writing with people who "get" it.

Anyways, enough about my insecurities. I really and truly hope you do like what you are reading and don't feel that it's dumb. I'm assuming the one's who read but don't comment still like it. Thank you for taking the time and for your interest.
I give you a somewhat lengthy Chapter 2 of New Beginnings and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading.
Hugs, Dani

Love UnSeen Continues

Sorry for the long delay.

In the last part, Dan moved in with Jackson, and they went grocery shopping and then had some homemade gumbo together. It was a chance for us (and Dan) to experience what shopping and home life is like for Jackson.

In this segment, it's a couple days later and Jackson and Dan are settling into their life as roommates. Jackson has agreed to tag along with Dan for his photo project, and they're visiting various sites around the city so Dan can photograph them.

In this portion, Jack and Dan visit a cemetery, ride the streetcar, and then have some coffee. I'm sorry if it comes off as disjoined. I kept getting interrupted while writing this and I'm on some new medicine that's left my brain a bit scrambled but I really wanted to get something out for you guys this week.

Love UnSeen - Part 06


It's been a pretty crazy couple months and writing helps keep me grounded. Thank you so much for all your condolences and well wishes and support. It's nice to know that I have this community to fall back on.

And for those Kai lovers out there don't worry, he WILL be back. I'm not sure exactly when as I've been struggling with the writing so much but he's been my support through all of this as crazy as that sounds, so he'll definitely be coming back.

PS - Still no formal table of contents but I'll do a ghetto one here for those of you who want to catch up on the story.

PPS - No promises that I can make anything next week but I'm going to make it my goal.

Reckless Behaviour Chapter SEVEN!


Do I sound excited? I'm sorry. It's just that this is the farthest I've gotten in writing a story on Paradevo (my other stories are under six chapters). As a huge procastinator, this some serious progress.

Enough chatter. Here's Chapter Seven.

Table of Contents: Click right here.

Last week...

Aster doesn't let Cassia operate on him. The two of them visit a geneticist, who gives them some alarming news. Cassia accuses Molly of changing Aster. Aster and Cassia begin to doubt if they are really meant to be together.

New Story - New Beginnings

Hello my dear Blog Readers,

I missed you and I missed being here. Well, I'm back with another story. I'm actually kind of nervous posting this one because it is somewhat different than what I have been writing. This story was the first story ever I wrote about a devotee and a disabled man. It has been about 8 years since I wrote this. So a bunch of sheets of paper with a handwritten story in a thick binder had been lying around for the past couple of years.

When I first reviewed this story again last year I could only shake my head at what I had written back then. Since 8 years ago I have definitely grown in my writing and my knowledge so I knew right away that the story needed lots of editing and rewriting. It was VERY fictional at first. Anyways, it is still a work of fiction but I think I reworked the whole thing to where I can now dare to post it.

One very different thing for me was that I had written this story originally in first person and I thought a lot about rewriting all of it in third person because that is usually my preferred POV when writing and reading. But as I read, typed, and edited the story I thought I would just leave it in first person and it was not always easy. Definitely a different ball game and I sincerely hope I did an okay job.

I am an amateur writer, I enjoy writing, English is not my native language and this is just another one of my works. You will probably wonder with some elements of the story this time and you will probably also see some similarities to my previous stories on here if you have read them. I invite you to just enjoy the story as it is. The location is also somewhat different but I have lived there and actually have relatives there. I welcome all your feedback any time because it lets me know that it is something good that I am doing here.

This story is about love, pain, and passion. You will get to know Anna and Shane and the people in their lives. I hope you will enjoy the story and I will embrace all your comments with joy in my heart. I give you New Beginnings - Chapter 1
Thanks for reading,
Hugs, Dani

Nothing This Week, But Hopeful For Next

I'm sorry this is so late.

I had really hoped that I would be able to get something up today, but I had a rheumatology appointment that took most of the day and then I was just so exhausted I fell asleep instead of doing the work I had planned.

But my writing is so important to me, now more than ever, so I will be doing my best to continue posting. The reality is will probably be every other week rather than weekly as my energy level has been somewhere between a 90-year-old grandma and a sloth with the flu, half because of medicine and half because in addition to everything I'm already dealing with I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia today. Yay. Lucky me. (And people criticize me when I heap everything on poor Kai, weary sigh.)

Anyway, thank you all for your support last week. My dad's illness and death was all pretty sudden it's still been hard to process for all of us. Spending time at my mom's house this past week, it kept thinking that he must have just been in his office and he'd be coming out any time, but of course he wasn't.
