This is simply an organizational page for the Bailey series.

The story begins with The Summer of Bailey.

Then proceeds into Seasons of Bailey; going through Autumn, Winter and Spring respectively.

Then the story continues with All American Bailey.

Hopefully this will make it easier to follow the order of the story.

So I consider myself rather efficient in keeping healthy. I try to eat right, exercise (maybe too much). Sometimes I have issues sleeping, but it always seems to be "enough" when I get it. Over the years I've adopted too many feminine beauty regimens to register myself on the male side of the gender spectrum.

The Kansas City Royals have won the World Series 4-1. They came back to beat the New York Mets in the 12th inning of game 5, 7-2, after the Mets had a 2-0 lead for 8 innings. Hats off to the New York Mets for playing a hard-fought series. They were a class act.

On a side note, the Chiefs won in London! Good day for KC sports.

Bailey's first day back at school
sees her navigating the halls,
as well as past friendships and rivalries.
Will it be too much for her to handle this year?
Or will she break through barriers,
while moving on toward brighter days?

Loathing your own work

I'm just curious if any of you have ever gotten to the point where you really hate something you've written? Like every time someone mentions it you cringe. Or when fans of it ask for more, you wish you could travel back in time and slap yourself and say, "Don't write that you idiot!" Any of you feel this way, or is it just me?

Seasons of Bailey: Winter - Part 4

Bailey decides to take drastic measures,
and chooses to let things go.
It seems some reevaluation is in order
if anything is going to seem normal again.
However, as Bailey is letting things go,
he discovers some things are going on their own...

New experiences await Bailey.
His first ballet serves as a backdrop to finding out new things
about himself, his friends, and even life itself.
Could a wonderful afternoon out with Tawny be exactly what he needs?
Or will it simply add to the confusion…

Bailey is stuck in a world becoming evermore confusing.
When things feel so right, he feels so wrong.
Even when things seem so positive around him,
Bailey feels something is horribly wrong beneath the surface.
It may be the beginning of a winter slump,
but perhaps there is more to it than that…

Tom is gone, and Bailey has no idea when he'll be coming back.
It has been a month since he left,
and things have been solemnly different for Bailey.
Thinking that his departure would be the greatest freedom ever,
Bailey is confused to find that everything comes with a price…

Bailey Winter Series

Bailey will return next month with the first part of the Winter series. I took some time away from the story to work on another project for a request. It was a foot fetish story that I couldn't pass up, and I may post it here in the future. That story, however, will be done this week, and then after enjoying a little bit of Halloween mischief, I'll be back to work on writing more Bailey. Luckily it was at 1/3 completion before I took on the other project. So it won't be long.

Seasons of Bailey: Autumn - Part 7

Only days after what seemed like a magical evening,
Bailey is hit hard on all fronts.
School, home, and even a visit to the doctor's office,
has Bailey recalculating and rethinking his approach to life.
It seems all he can do is try to keep his head above water.
However, a fresh face puts a new perspective
on how Bailey has been viewing things recently.
Perhaps there is a silver lining to his currently cloudy days...

Quite a few people have suggested, over the course of the year, that they would like to see more of the Bailey series shorter and more frequently. So I'm coming to those who are reading the series once more to get some feedback on format changes. Since I'll be moving onto the winter series after one more chapter, I'll seek to change it now rather than wait.

Seasons of Bailey: Autumn - Part 6

Halloween rolls around, and Bailey still has no clue as to what his costume will even be.
He finds that to be only the first of many surprises awaiting him on this strange night.
Prepared for anything, or rather unprepared, Bailey goes to a party at Rachel's house.
Hopefully he will make it through the night in one piece…

Just as the leaves change color in autumn,
things continue to change for Bailey.
As he starts to piece together who he is on the inside,
he stops to reflect on the things changing around him.
Prepared to spend a fun night with Tiffany, at the annual fall festival,
Bailey instead finds it hard to not be alone…

What happens at Nathan's house, stays at Nathan's house.
Bailey finds himself in a very uncomfortable position at Nathan's house.
With all that is going on in his life,
he finds complications waiting for him at every turn.
Even school becomes complicated, when a rash decision
brings Bailey more attention than he ever wanted from his classmates…

A visit to Rajan's office hardly helps Bailey find the positives in his condition.
Tom's odd behavior doesn't calm Bailey's nerves either.
Faced with a night hiding in his room, from Tom's rowdy friends,
or watching a football game at Nathan's house, with Justin,
Bailey decides to suffer through the game away from home.
Only Bailey's decision might have caused more problems than he thought possible...

Bailey suffers through another ordinary day at school,
feeling his Friday night rendezvous at the mall draw ever closer.
Pressure for him to hide his girly identity from Jason builds,
as the mysterious writer of the letter slips another note into Tiffany's art box.
When he finds that everything may intersect at the same place and time,
he starts to have serious reservations about the evening…
