Updates: Year 1

June 7, 2001 - My web site is finally up! For those of you who don't know me, I'm a teenage guy who loves to write stories. Right now, I'm mainly doing fanfiction (stories based on someone else's characters), but I have a few original ideas, too. There's not much here yet, but I have stuff planned to add in the future. I mainly want to focus on my stories, but there's some other stuff I might add. The main feature I want to do is a behind the scenes look at the stories about the stories.

June 12, 2001 - Chapter 5 of "Shadowed" is now posted.

There won't be any more updates for a while. I'm going to be going on vacation to the west coast and won't return until the beginning of July. I hope to get a little writing done while I'm away, but there's no guarantee. Just be patient and wait for several weeks until I can get some new material up. I'll inform you the day I get back.

July 5, 2001 - I'm back! I had a great time on vacation, and I hope to continue working on my stories soon.

July 20, 2001 - I've been hard at work, and now Chapter 6 of "Shadowed" is complete and posted. I've also added the Behind the Story for "Trigger".

July 26, 2001 - "The Arbosens" series, an original of mine, has been posted. In contrast to the original humorous stories I've posted, these are more serious and dramatic. I hope to add Behind the Stories for them soon.

July 31, 2001 - "The Genastone: Chapter 4" is finished. I have also added the Behind the Story for "Arborire" and "Arbolacer."

August 14, 2001 - The website is going through a small redesign in preparation for search engine submission. New stories are on the way, including "Batman", a two-part Batman Beyond story.

August 21, 2001 - The website has completed its small redesign. Behind the Stories now includes articles on incomplete stories (The Genastone and Shadowed). A Batman Beyond zine has been added to the Links section. Part I of "Batman" should be finished by Thursday.

August 30, 2001 - Batman: Part I is posted (sorry it took so long; I've been busy with other stuff). A Behind the Story for that will follow when I've finished Part II.

September 6, 2001 - I am working on Part II of "Batman" (which has been extended to three parts). I ask that you be patient while I finish writing it.

I would like to apologize to those who are waiting for me to finish my Turtles and Zelda stories. What with school and all the extracurricular activities I'm in, some stories may take a while to finish. It's not easy to write three stories at once. After I'm finished with "Batman", I'll probably work on Zelda next. Please be patient.

September 18, 2001 - After recovering from an illness, I have finalized the final draft (is that redundant?) of Batman: Part II. Click the link to enjoy.

October 2, 2001 - Batman: Part III will come soon! I just need to find time to write it! The main update is that I've added a whole bunch of Batman Beyond links that are worthy of a look.

October 9, 2001 - Finally, Batman: Part III is done! I thank you all for waiting patiently. A Behind the Story will follow soon.

For Turtles fans, I have added a link to the FanFic Archive, a place where you can find tons of TMNT fanfics! Plus, the Behind the Story for the "Turtles Humor" has been expanded into the separate stories and I have added much speculation and background to them.

And for Zelda fans, I will start working on Chapter 7 of "Shadowed" next.

October 25, 2001 - The Behind the Story for Batman is finished.

November 20, 2001 - Shadowed: Chapter 7 ("Green Music") is about two-thirds done. Expect it next week. In the meantime, you can re-read Chapters 1-6, since I've gone back and revised them to make them a bit better.

December 17, 2001 - Oh, boy. I've got to remember to never promise when stories will be done. I was seriously going to finish Chapter 7 soon, but my life got really busy and last weekend was the first chance I got to sit down and work on it. Sorry if you've been waiting and waiting and waiting for me to finish. Anyway, Shadowed: Chapter 7 is finished and ready for you to read. Hopefully, Christmas vacation will give me more free time to write!

January 6, 2002 - Happy New Year, everybody! It looks like 2002 will be full of interesting things to come. I had some updates to make to the site, but our computer had problems and had to be reset to an earlier date (you know those quick restore programs, right?). Anyway, the earlier date turned out to be before I made my updates! I lost all my changes! *sigh* Computers can be difficult sometimes.

Anyway, I hope to re-write those updates and make some new ones as well. Until then!

January 28, 2002 - My life has been very busy lately. It's been keeping me from my work. However, I hope to get back to writing very soon. Chapter 5 of Genastone will be my next project. New updates today: Spider-Man links have been added (no, I won't be doing any Spider-Man stories, it's just an area I have a lot of interest in), plus a link to Gotham City, USA. Also, the Behind the Story for Shadowed has been updated through Chapter 7.

February 26, 2002 - After a dry spell, I have written down a couple small original ideas, ranging from the ridiculous to the artistic to poetry. Check them out!

March 7, 2002 - Main additions today are Behind the Stories for Artistry, Old Geezers Anonymous, and Diedric. I will continue work soon on Genastone: Chapter 5. Also, expect a reworking of the site in the near future.

March 19, 2002 - The Genastone: Chapter 5 is complete! Read the next chapter in the saga, as the Turtles face the Genastone in what may be a costly battle. Also added is an update to Behind the Story: Genastone and a Batman Beyond link.

Due to my slowness in finishing stories, I've decided to change my approach. Previously, I wrote a chapter in one universe, then moved to the next universe and wrote a chapter, then moved to the next universe, etc. I was trying to satisfy everybody by adding new material to each every once in a while. However, due to my erratic schedule, some delays have taken way too long (this new addition to Genastone is the first new chapter in almost eight months). Since I don't want to keep everyone waiting that long, I will change my work habits.

From now on, I will complete all multi-part stories at once, without taking breaks to work on other universes (original material nonwithstanding; I write that when inspiration comes). In the case of extremely long stories (Shadowed, for example), I will try to write four to five chapters at a time before moving on elsewhere.

I hope this approach will prove satisfactory. If you have any comments about this, feel free to e-mail me.

May 16, 2002 - Just letting you all know that I'm still alive. Personal problems have kept me from writing recently, but I'm trying to work through them. Genastone: Chapter 6 is finished, and expect it posted next week (barring unforseeable disasters or the like). 'Til then.

May 23, 2002 - As promised, The Genastone: Chapter 6 is finished! The Turtles are forced to fight their own, and the stakes are raised. You'll have to read it to find out more! Also, the Turtles links have been updated.

Summer is almost here! School ends in a week for me, so I'll finally have more time to sleep in, take long walks, and write stories.
