New Beginnings Chapter 25

Hello again my friends,
Thursday and New Beginnings time...yeeeaaahhh
Thanks for your sweet comments last week, it made me very happy.
I bring you another dramatic chapter this week, I should probably come out with my own brand of tissue boxes "Dani's Tearjerker"
Anyways, more drama and more love for you this week as Shane and Anna face the next challenge in their relationship.
Thanks for everyone who still reads along and for all your comments.
Here is Chapter 25 of New Beginnings.

No Stories Today, But Expect Some Next Week

I know it's been a couple weeks since I posted anything. You guys are probably tired of hearing excuses, so all I'll say is I've been having a very rough time, physically, and that's made it difficult to write.

I really, really wanted to get something up today, but the reality is In/Exhale really isn't ready and I didn't want to rush anything. But I think you guys are going to enjoy the rest of Season 3.

The way things are going right now I'm going to post next week come hell or high water. It may mean I have to post episodes alternate weeks rather than weekly, which sucks, I know, but I figure it's better than waiting a few more months, right?

As for Love UnSeen, my hope is to get that started up again very soon. If not next week then perhaps the week after. Maybe I'll even alternate weeks with the two stories so you get an update every Wednesday regardless.

Thanks again for sticking with me and for being so patient. I really appreciate it.


PS - While you wait, maybe refresh In/Exhale (Table of Contents) or Love UnSeen (Table of Contents), or let me know what you're hoping to see in either (or both) stories in the future!

New Beginnings Chapter 24

Hello NB friends,
been a busy week but here we are again and I'm bringing you another chapter of NB.
Thanks to everyone who commented and also thanks to all my silent readers. I know it is not a story for everyone and only some enjoy my type of stories but I very much appreciate the ones who do like it and keep reading along.
In this chapter Anna finds out what may have caused Shane's breakdown. Everyone is supportive but loving Shane seems to get more difficult for her.
I give you Chapter 24 of New Beginnings.
Thanks to my loyal readers and commentators. You guys rock!
Hugs, Dani

No story this week

Sorry to disappoint, everyone.

The past two weeks have been really rough on me emotionally and physically. I think I may finally have found a doctor willing to investigate my joint pain and maybe help with that, so that's a tiny glimmer of light in an otherwise sea of darkness.

I wanted to start posting I/E today, but I don't have enough of it done to ensure we won't have huge gaps in between episodes/days, and I'd hate to do that to you. So my *plan* is to finish as much as I can by next week and start posting then, perhaps every other week instead of weekly, to give me more time to get stuff ready.

As for Love UnSeen, that story *will* be continuing soon. I just needed a little break since writing every episode a few days before posting it is exhausting.

Thank you all for your support and feedback. I'm very sorry I wasn't able to post at all last week, even to say I wasn't going to post, because I was at doctor appointments all day and by the time I got home we had no internet due to a major local outage.


In the meantime, feel free to let me know what you hope to see happen next in either story. Some of your ideas may end up in future episodes!

Our Choices

Hello everyone,
I hope I do not step on anyone's toes by posting today? Since I gloriously missed posting on Saturday and the blog has been a bit quiet, I thought I slip this in. If it is not okay, feel free to delete this, Lee!

Okay, those of you who participated in the poll decided almost unanimously to take the risk rather than the detour. Well... let's see how this works out!

Your Choice: Check if the truck still works

I'll be taking votes until Friday into account!

Have fun!

Between the Pages: Chapter 10

Thanks to everybody for being patient with me today! I appreciate it. :) This chapter is a little on the shorter side, but the following two or three are filled with some yummy stuff. Consider it a prologue? ;) Happy Monday, and enjoy chapter ten.

P.S.: Wondering who Max and Inez are? Check out the rest of their story right here

Between the Pages: Coming tonight!!

To anyone following along with Between the Pages, I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to post yet. I started a new job last week and it's kicking my butt (it also doesn't have Internet access yet, but that's a story for another blog post...*eye roll*). I don't know that a lot of you are reading or enjoying it, but for those that are, rest assured an update is coming before midnight tonight!! :-)

New Beginnings Chapter 23

Hello NB friends,
hope everyone had a great week. Mine went by so fast once again. Posting chapters every week is just another reminder for me how fast time flies.
Thursday and I am giving you Chapter 23 of NB. Thanks so much for the beautiful comments last week. It means a lot to me and I hope you like this week's chapter. Anna and Shane are not really getting their break yet and things are getting tough. Thanks for reading and commenting.
Hugs, Dani

New Beginnings Chapter 22

Hello NB friends,
....and it's Thursday again. Almost midnight and I give you Chapter 22 of NB. I was rushing through my final editing a bit tonight, so much other stuff going on. It's another long chapter and as always I thank everyone who still comes along with Anna's and Shane's story. In this chapter some stuff about Shane's childhood is revealed. Thanks so much for reading and commenting,
Love ya'll, Dani

Love UnSeen Continues

Sorry this post is late. I had a pretty rough week, emotionally and physically, and this next chapter was so important I didn't want to rush it. I also didn't want to postpone it and lose the momentum, especially since I may not be able to post next week because I have multiple doctor appointments scheduled on Wednesday.

Last week, Jackson went to his doc who gave him some bad news, and was humiliated by Benji, who he went to after having his heart broken by Dan's revelation that he's engaged to a woman. This week picks up right after that disastrous lunch.

I hope it was worth the wait,

Love UnSeen - 15

Again, I may not be able to post next week. Hopefully when I return I'll have another installment of Love UnSeen as well as In/Exhale, although I may take a brief break (2-3 weeks) from this story to recover a bit. Thanks again for all your comments as I greatly appreciate them and they really do motivate me to keep going. Feel free to let me know what you hope to see happen next!

Norrbotten Bus

“Is this seat taken?”
I startle at the sound of the female voice. For a second I am not even sure where I am but the low rumble of the engine and the lulling sway of my seat cue me in quickly.

New Beginnins Chapter 21

Hello my friends,
here we are again. Thanks sooooo much for the comments I had last week. They made me very happy and I want to reply to all of you every so often so you know I read every comment and I appreciate it so much. You reading my stories means so much to me.

Someone asked if I had a chapter in Shane's POV but I have to tell you I unfortunately don't have one. This was the only story I ever wrote in First Person from Anna's POV and it's written all the way like this. I always worry I would not be a good male POV writer, because I don't fully know how guys think and I don't want to mess up the male POV with a female undertone or thought process.

The stories I posted in the past were written in Third Person and I felt okay with that, telling the story usually with my male protagonist being the main character and I guess that relayed a bit of a male POV. I'm still mastering my writing skills, actually been reading a book on POV's lately but it is only a hobby and my time in furthering my amateur writing into something more professional is limited. Work, family, pets, house, friends and the hobby of writing on the side...

With all this being said this week's chapter is a long one again, I just didn't know where to cut it so here is Chapter 21 of NB. I read over it several times, read it aloud and made some changes but I think it's ready to go. Anna and Shane are trying to cope with the separation and still working out all the issues they face, realizing lengthy separations are just not going to work very well for them.

Please know I appreciate and love all my readers,
Yours, Dani
