Finding Daisy Parts 9 to 13- Finale

If 22,000 words is too long too bad. I spent hours trying to rewrite this to make it better because people didn't like it the least you can do is read it without complaining about the length.

Bottom of the barrel

Author: 

The past few days I have been trying t write my next story. It was going great until I saw that I had done most of it already and can't find a new angle of attack for the story. I am well and truly stumped. I keep going but it's not coming out how I wanted to. I am getting to where I need to go but it's not flowing how I'd like and worse it might sound disjointed with additional conversations that don't belong in the story.

Tired

Author: 

Tire of feeling like crap because I don't dive into politics. Tired of feeling like crap because people who aren't affected by anything going on here pushing their views around and complaining when someone who differs calls them on it. Tire of feeling like crap because I have to always hold my tongue and can't directly say something without feeling like I am going to cause a riot. Tired of feeling like crap because I misremember something I learned two decades ago and having it backfire on me. Just tired.

Chapter 15
With so many coming over Lilly went over to the Finn home early she could help with the cooking. Daisy slept in, Miles pointed out that it wasn't right to subject her to the scrutiny of the other teens, their parents, and the teachers yet. He had a point, he himself kept his distance from her to let her get used to the others as he wasn't sure what to think about her himself.

Chapter 8
Leslie sounded seriously disturbed when she called Anne after Dale's exam. Anne didn't expect her to call her at all, but this sounded serious. Anne rushed over to Leslie's apartment as fast as she could., hoping that whatever was going on wasn't serious.

Chapter 5
Dale was quiet after dinner. He fell asleep fast and huddled into a ball at the foot of the bed like a dog instead of a child. It was heartbreaking seeing this, he had a large full-size bed to himself yet he couldn't bring himself to sleep in the middle as any sensible person would do.

Early story posting

Author: 

Sorry for the early posting but I didn't want to risk missing a day due to the blizzard going on overhead. It's the first major storm that has hit my current hometown and I don't know how the electrical substations, cable, and telephone lines will respond. It ain't the Blizzard of '78 but is a blizzard none the less.

Weddings And Reunions Part 16.5

drrzFS3.jpg

Author's note: I tried to keep this generalized and not a whole "Tour of Scotland" as it was simply meant to be a side trip. The bonding bit replaced a lot of fluff, I'd rather address a lingering issue than sound like a tourist guide. Backstory on Brent Finn can be found in "For A Friend".

Weddings and Reunions Part 16

drrzFS3.jpg

Author's note: rereading the saga from the start and I never delved into Jaimie pre-accident. Well this deals with it. It has been a LONG time since I featured Jaimie's issues but some issues were left unresolved. There should be approximately six, maybe seven more chapters of the story plus the epilogue, so it's the home stretch.

Weddings and Reunions Part 14

drrzFS3.jpg

Author's note: This story is wearing me down so I'll try to post it as often as I can even if it means splitting the story parts down to individual chapters of about 3,400 words in length. Sorry for those who like longer parts, but I just don't have the mental energy to do longer editions at this time.

drrzFS3.jpg
