Finally, new chapter done

Well, I just finished the lastest chapter of Time Enough for Love. Actually it got so long that I had to split it in two. Thanks to dear Capella for doing a last minute beta before taking off for Turkey (!) (Waves! Have a lovely time, my dear. Next time I want to go with you.) So, since the second half is mostly done, (I need to add a scene), it should come out fairly quickly - like toward the middle of this next week. Then I just have two more to go which I might be able to combine into one. Gad, will I be glad when this one is done. There is nothing like setting out to write an idea as a lark and six months later, you are still writing. And now this fic is the longest one I've written, even longer than Dragon Fever.

I swore to Capella I'd only do PWPs from now on and she snickered. I guess she knows me too well. Unfortunately, I do have about four or five plot bunnies gnawing on my behind -one a Troy fic, one a continuation of Swords & Seduction, one a Silmarillion fic dealing with the fall of Numenor (that one will be a real novel) and several others. In addition, I have a real life writing project I must complete and so after I get Elwin and Leggy out of my system,I may have to drop the smut for a while.

So, anyway, will polish up this next chapter and then post to the usual locations. Would you folks be at all interested in having me post chapters here? I thought I wouldn't post this fic on LJ as I didn't start doing it here.

Cheers,
~ES

Oh yay! More TEFL! That makes my evening.

About posting here, I'd say go for it. A lot of the archives and lists are seriously slowing down, so anything that gives easier access. Speaking of which, it's a bit of work, but you should totally put all of your fics up here in the journal, archiving in your memories section. That would be cool because I don't think I've seen all of your fics in any one place before.

Congrats and hugs, babe *g*

Enjoyed the new chapter, Elfscribe. :) Also, I've been meaning to tell you that I really like the Orc interaction you've got in this chapter and the previous ones: it's believably gruff and quite humorous besides. Feel free to post stories to LJ if you like. It's true that Yahoo groups are slowing down; I don't check them nearly as often as I do Live Journal, and then mostly because I'm looking for updates to specific stories.

Wow Maggie. That was fast. Thanks for comments. Yeah, kinda enjoyed writing Ergluk's voice. Tougher than it looks to try and write orc slang. (I had to make up some curses - LOL) Tolkien used a sort of lower class accent for his, but his orcs are still fairly articulate. My tendency was to want to write sort of modern street slang, but that wouldn't work as canon. So, I did the best I could. Hope you are enjoying your vacation.

May I scream in joy? May I tell you how much I love you when I see such an annoucement?

See you later with a long and surely delighted review,
Cas *off to read TEFL*

Eh, Cas my dear - you may certainly scream and tell me how much you love me - anytime. *g* Hope the fic merits that ardor. LOL. I think you'll like the next chapter even better.
Hugs,

Aiya, you have updated! And I'm already 5days behind!
Well, I'm running off to read the long awaited new chapter.

Whereever you place your stories, I will gladly go find them as long as I know where they are. So just keep on posting! I beg of you!

Hey dear, I hope you like the latest. I'll do my best to keep posting. Just wish I could devote full time to this. LOL.
