Hatbox Funds Needed

We've paid our current bills and the Hatbox wallet is pretty empty. Another week will bring new bills of about $1000, so now would be a good time to send us a gift if you are planning to do so. We were able to order the new hardware with how much we had paid down our bills in the last year, but of course that now adds to our debt again.

But! This means in about two weeks or a bit more, we should be able to improve service here.

There must be another way to deal with the conflict or the world will run out of holidays—forever!

As a reminder, here is the original blog entry, including instructions on what the terms of contest entry and final prizes are.

Grandpa's New Ride in The Hatbox

 

Grandpa's New Ride

by Katie Leone

GrandpasNR.jpg

Grandpa has an old ride, ancient, a relic really; when he decides to change it for a new one, his grandson Scott jumps at the chance to join him at the auction. A fun sci-fi romp by one of BigCloset and DopplerPress's favorite authors.

It is 'Panto' time again

It is Panto season again here in the UK. All manner of tales are being performed all over the country. My local theatre is doing 'Aladdin' this year.

I've done a couple of stories in the past where the action centred around a Panto.

This year, I've done something slighly different. Call it a 're-imagining' of a classic tale.

My tale is in three parts that will be posted next monday, tuesday and wednesday.
It has three ugly sisters, a ball, a sort of prince charming and of course a waif who is plucked out of servitude and sent to the ball.

awww an't that cute a mini Rohanna!

Look this is exactly or very close to what I mentally saw as the Rohanna or 'Leigh' twins action figures for the movie they made during the summer!

all that is missing is---Jobe's head? or maybe a few victims? A few beaten bullies???

Here Comes the Bride

The first 5 and a new chapter of Here Comes the Bride are up on the site for a limited time. The last chapter will be going out to be edited tonight or tomorrow. When the entire story is up, it would stay on the site for a week.

Feedback, reviews and scribbling

It's snowing outside and I had some time to spare so I checked out some of the reviews on Amazon for my works.

Overall they are pretty positive, a couple clearly don't get my intent with plot lines but hey ho, you can't please everyone all of the time....

One thing that certainly did come through though was some enthusiasm for the various stories to continue. Easier said than done of course, i'd love to continue all the series in a never ending output but let's face it, that's a lot of effort and there are other things going on in my life besides writing!

Back again. Looking for an editor really quick.

Looking for an editor for a story I just chopped out for Bill Hart's SRU Universe that had been ruminating in my brain for a while, it's Pop culture related.
I may have some other things coming down the pipe for you to look at as well.

Trying to get there before Santa

Hello, folks. You may not remember me or even know me, I've been quiet so long. It's been difficult to get in here because of work and family.

Anyway, I've been working my way through the plot of a new story, a Christmas story, and puzzling out the pieces. For me, developing a new story idea is about answering questions like What happened just before this? and Why did they hide the key? and Where did what's-his-name go and why?

TG Techie Blog 97: The Stage Tech Starts Soon, I Promise

Well if you're reading TG Techie, (and if you are, thank you. You should comment more though) for the techie stuff, I'm so sorry but it's still coming. Aisling as a character is almost defined enough to move into it. Just three more chapters, and the stuff starts on the fourth. So two weeks out.

TG Techie: Chapter 5: Target missing from the front page ?

This is odd. TG Techie: Chapter 5: Target isn't on the home page, despite the fact that the chapter posted seconds later (TG Techie: Chapter 5: [XXX 1] Exploration) is. Is this a system thing from posting the two of them side by side, or did one of them get lost somewhere?

New Twin Tails Coming, Sara Story

We got a short game in Friday and I just finished the unedited draft of Chapter 11 of Twin Tails. It's up for preview on my patreon at the moment, should be here in a day or two. Just a planning session this time, a bit of character banter and defusing an angry mob of rich people. Was still fun.

TG Techie, XXX rated content

Well I've been reading the audience here on Big Closet. The desire here seems to be for tamer content than on TGStories, or Fictionmania. That's cool and all, but I am writing porn here. And the parts of 11th Sun with XXX in the title are the most read.

I think what I'm gonna do here is post tomorrow with the trip to Target, and the bra fitting, because that's porn for a certain kind of person. Then I'll put up the next chapter immediately, instead of on Friday, which is the part where she masturbates for the first time, which is porn for another kind of person.

Fugue State: An Awakened Novel

1326277015.jpgHer name was Kitty...at least, that was what she had been told after waking up with no idea where or who she was. Kitty, the girl who was supposed to be mourning the recent loss of a mother she had no memory of. Kitty, the loving, devoted daughter of a kind and understanding father who was a complete stranger to her. Kitty, the girl who was determined to move forward with her life despite not remembering where she'd started.

Weekly serial (double length)

Sorry, I'm a little late getting this up, but the latest part of Psyren's Redemption is up now. For the forseeable future I may have to go with a more irregular schedule for story posting as the Tuesday postings have gotten a lot harder as of late.

This time around it is about double the usual length. Plus, it's a shower scene so things do get a bit hot, in more than one sense of the word.

Barbie's Doll

Hi, All!

I have just posted Part 5 of 'Barbie's Doll'. I had no intention of making this a daily posting and was just lucky enough to be off this week to make that happen. Alas, I have to get back to reality and will not be posting daily from here on out. I will shoot for weekly, but can't even guarantee that, for now.

If possible, I will post another part tomorrow. Otherwise I am pretty sure I can get one posted sometime next week.

I hope you continue to enjoy the story--sorry that it will be a little slower coming out, though.

HUGS!

The Wish Commentary

The last thing I want is for readers to feel confused and then not enjoy a fic, so I decided to put down some questions readers might have about The Wish. Some readers may not have any questions at all and completely understand my intent and that's cool too. Spoiler warning starts now:

1. Is this my Christmas Wish submission?: A bit undecided about that, but I do believe I can deliver a heavier story. The inspiration for The Wish came to me within the last few days. Also, I like to leave open the option of posting this on another site, so as for right now, no.

Christmas Suite

I am excited. This is a big day for writing firsts.

It's the first story I have written just for BigCloset TopShelf.

It's the first writing contest I have ever entered.

It's the first story I have ever formatted all on my own. The lovely Dawn Natelle did all that 'stuff' in the past. I still don't know how to add extra spaces and how to get the story to be marked SOLO, but hey it's a first.

I have to thank StacyInLove who egged me on and challenged me to give it a try. It's really all her fault if you don't like it.

I'm honestly a little intimidated

Having read most of the submissions for the Christmas contest, I can honestly say I'm a little intimidated, The level of quality in the stories is astounding, especially when you consider most of the authors are not professional writers, and several of our "heavy hitters" havent even weighed in with their stories yet.

This is one of the reasons I love this place, the shear quality of work is amazing.

A Rose in the Cracks

I'm so nervous! I just submitted my first book for Amazon! I don't really consider myself a writer, and I have held off writing shorter pieces to write something longer, but Sephrena and others prodded me enough to try it. At least I can say I tried it now!

Hugs to all who have heard me prattle about it for so long,
Stacy

Twin Tails Posted

Wow, what a week. New Twin Tails is finally up, I only did one editing pass because I wanted to get it to everyone after being extra-double-special late. Feedback very appreciated if you can spare a moment. In my defence, I've had dizzy spells on Friday and yesterday plus my Dad fell out of the ceiling Sunday morning. He's fine, just a few cuts and bruises, nothing permanent and no hospital visit. He's recuperating well but it was a bit of a shock for all of us.

It Can Only Go Up From Here

Finished the first draft of the first chapter for “It Can Only Go Up From Here” with 2362 words...yes, its about half the length of the first chapter of the first book and I may increase the chapter to kind of match up with the pacing and movement of the other book...only to counter the doldrums of James’ life to Jennifer’s.

The chapter titles are still Shania Twain songs (Thank you for releasing a new album), with the first one entitled “I’m Alright”

Schedule Changes? - Blog Entry 98

Here's the story.

I am ridiculously ahead here. Like five chapters ahead. That means that you won't see what I'm working on now for five weeks, and frankly the suspense is killing me.

So. I can change my update schedule to twice a week, and put chapters up on Tuesday and Friday mornings. And then you all can see them.

But.

I don't think I can keep up the pace of 4,000 words twice a week, once you all have caught up to where I am.

However.

I know that I can write 2,000 words in two days with very little problem.

So.

My Challenge

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Blog About: 

Author: 

I gave myself a challenge here, to finish the first (clean) draft of a story that evening and sit on it a week before revision. Clearly I didn't make it, but the first draft is done now -- only off by three and a half weeks.

Now let's see if I can avoid looking at it for a week or so (six days might suffice) before reading and revising it.

Back to work...

Back to work on “It Can Only Go Up From Here”. This has been difficult to work on due to the other two stories that are running in tandem with the storyline in this one and that the political climate is the same as the storyline I created over a year ago and as I write it I have to take a step back and wonder if I’m using today’s news in a story that takes place in 1997-1998.

Illogical Creatures

Aside from writing, the central focus of my life is to fully understand what it is to be a woman, so I can more faithfully render them in my stories.

I was completely astonished to attend three functions over the holidays in which I was completely treated like a woman, a sisterhood member. At no time was the fact that I might be counterfeit as a woman mentioned and it felt really good.
