Here's a note from Helen regarding "Going Home":

http://going-home-07.greatestjournal.com/

I'm relieved that she won't be doing a "quick" wrap-up of the story, and will be finishing it the way she originally planned.  It'll be worth the wait, I'm sure.   

It appears she has started re-posting some of the chapters at her new Greatest Journal location, at the link above.

Hey Fabienne,

I went back and checked Helen's new journal, and I realize now that it looks like she hasn't yet posted all of the chapters - I think it just goes back to May, so I'll modify my post above.  I'll pm you about the earlier chapters.

update from Helen Jan 26, 08

Since I've been getting comments asking me...

Yes, everything is as it was when I posted my last entry (only last month) telling you the story would be finished. I have very little time to myself these days, even less time to actually write.

I also said I would be finishing the whole thing before posting. That's a lot of writing - certainly more than one month's worth. More than two, I imagine, might be even more than three. Or four.


Looks like her intent is to continue-fingers crossed because I love this story.

Thanks for the head up Rouxb. We'll just have to be patient, I guess. This story's worth it.

Yes, thanks for that, RouxB.  It's reassuring to know "Going Home" is still on her mind.

Another update!   :)   "Harvest Moon" - Helen calls it a mini-chapter:

Helen has a wonderful way of showing us how natural everything is between these boys.  Beautiful, as always.

Hey Marie, Gabriel,

I just finished reading it. You're right, there is such a sense of everything falling into place. I love this story.
