Quick Update: I forgot to say Happy Father's day to all the fathers out there. It has been nearly ten years since my dad died, and it's hard to not think about him every day not just today. We didn't see eye to eye, but I think just maybe we found some common ground in the end. Happy Father's Day Dad Gerald Lewis Collins

I woke up this morning with my usual headache and blood in my snot. Yummy. This went on for a while, but as it cleared, so did my head. God willingly, I will be better for Monday. I sat down and went back to The O’Shea Gang, but after a while, I gave up a little and went to My Private Global War, which I posted earlier today. This will be short with very little to do other than my laundry, the stories, and my growing headache. I don’t know what this week will be like. I need to make as much money as I can this week with the bills piling up and the next check missing the two days I was out sick. I think I’m (darn it) taking the schedule off the page with just too much happening to ever be able to have a part every 5 out of 7 days, but even with that change, I’ll keep going with more to come……..
Thank you for your time
I’m (darn it) looking over what I typed for the last part of chapter 14, and I just don’t see where I was going with the last part. I think part four of chapter 14 acts as a better chapter end than anything I could add. In fact, I wonder if this was more of a filler rather than a true story. I need to stop looking at the word count and concentrate on a tight story (as if that’s possible now). As of right now, I see two more chapters with the next one being where all the different parts collide and the last chapter acting as a resolution to the entire story. I hope to have something soon,
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I forgot to say (or type) Happy Easter in my daily(ish) message so sorry about that.
Quick Update: I made a mistake when I posted chapter six part two posting at part one. I fixed it and hopefully I won't do this with part three.
Sorry about that

I sat down to work on reworking my stories to hopefully made the dialogue fit the accepted format. I decided to start on the top of my Story PDF page with Joleen Warren. I worked on this all day not realizing just how much work this was going to be and as of right now I am still not done. With no real material being added I will be able to work on this after work. This reworking will take up much of my time along with that whole working double trips all next week (oh god I hope I’m (darn it) wrong about that). I plan on going back to this and reposting the story on a special page I will develop soon. It will just be the PDFs, and I will only post when the story is completely reworked including a reediting. I hope to make my stories readable to those people who accidentally find the page and open a PDF not knowing what they will find. It’s weird going back and revisiting stories that from my perspective were over years ago even when it was just a year. When I am done, I will have new stories bot short and long with more to come…………...
The new story mentioned in an earlier post will be done in this new style and might take some time.
I use “I” way too many times.
OK, apparently, I’ve been doing this thing wrong the whole time. I formatted my stories wrong. I was supposed to make a new paragraph with every dialogue change. This means I have several stories written in the wrong format. I am going to keep going what the stories I have finished, but I plan on reworking my older material to reflect this new understanding. When done I will post them on either the PDF page or a new one that reflects the reworked status. For all those who read my badly formatted crap, I am sorry for my piss poor work. Please take part in the poll.
So many things to say and do without enough time to do. I will post a real message about today in the morning. I ran into some issues including a laptop that decided to stop working for a while. If it keeps this up, then I might have to put the whole site on hold until I can afford to buy a new one and then having more to come…………
OK, after more than a little time of staring at a blank screen (and surfing YouTube on the Roku) I got nothing. Not a darn thing. I think I need to take a drive to find a story in my head because sitting here watching YouTube and the weather change (sort of) all I can do is worry about tomorrow. This means as of right now I won’t have anything for Monday (with most likely Monday being a long day). I hope to get something started but in about an hour or so from this posting I need to start dinner. Tomorrow will come and go along with every other day in our lives with more to come………
Thank you for your time.
OK, the car is back on the road and only cost $649.07. Now all I have to do is pay it off. Forever.
I’m on my way to pick up the car around 5 pm (EST) and thank god for that. This home all day thing is killing me (and that’s Burger King's job). This is going to cost over 700 dollars and if too much more then I’m in trouble. The walk is going to take some time and in the dark, which is going to suck but that’s what I must do. With the car ready I’m back to work and working as many hours as I can to make up for the loan I had to take out for the car. I will post the final price when I get back (I also need to go to the store. After a week we ran out of most of our food in the house. Fat man needs a banana). I'll just update this post rather than starting a new post.
Going back to working as much as I can I won’t have too much time to work on the story, but I will have something on Wednesday and the final part of chapter 14 on Friday. Chapter 15 will be the final shorter part with an epilogue. This weekend should be the final for the book. I hope to be able to set Sunday aside and go over the final product. When that’s done my plan for short stories and working on the three-act will start with more to come………...
Thank you for your time.
I can’t wait to get back to Medina.
A quick update.
But first, Happy Halloween.
As usual, something is trying to keep me from working on the story. The internet connection keeps going down and when it does my laptop stops me. I am getting some work done but I don’t think it will be done tonight, and I defiantly won’t have anything to post tonight. I have an ending in my head, but I also want to end the storylines of a few other characters, and that is slowing me down (as well). Even if it’s not the final part, I will have something to post tomorrow, but I don’t want to rush.
Thank you for your time.
