Jane and Pent...

Thank you both so much for your wonderful supportive comments. I really appreciate it, it makes it easy for me to keep on this writing journey when I know that people are enjoying my story.

More to come...chapter 20 will post on Wednesday and the final ending will be Friday, if all goes as planned. Yes, the story will end, but you can always re-read it!

Hugs,
Leslie

"Is everything sad going to come untrue?" We should have known, I guess. But somehiow I thought they wouold have found out by now...

Those fingers are really getting around, let me tell ya...I wasn't going to use it, asnd then all of a sudden, there it was! Well, limited space and all...what's everyone else's excuse?

Y'mean, there's actually more?

I had a request over on the davecullen board to post "A Love Born From Steel" on LiveJournal. Apparently. some people have problems with fanfiction.net (spyware). I am slowly moving all the chapters. If you want to read it on LJ, here is the link for the beginning of the story:

Use the arrow to page through. The chapters are broken up into smaller sections (1a, 1b, etc).

Not to worry, new ideas are starting to percolate in my head. I had a very nice email from a reader, telling me how well I understand human nature and I realized that is what I like to write. Exploring relationships, seeing people change and grow. I am pondering something with Ennis and his brother and sister...the idea isn't fully formed but it is  incubating.

I am telling you, this fanfic writing is like heroin...totally addicting...

Leslie whilst I chew my nails to the quick waiting for tomorows chapter, can I ask you... IF you had written Brokeback Mountain, would you have changed anything about it or would you have written it exactly the same, including the ending?
