I Have Stories To Tell! Episode the 3rd

Girl howdy and howdy to the boy who is so supremely confidant in his toxic masculinity that he has no qualms in being the secondary banana in this opening long as he gets to play "looking-extra-sharp-in-a-thigh-high-slit-form-fitting-evening-gown" later in the evening, and welcome to the shish-ka-bob literary world of G.B. Miller, who is masculine but not toxic and wouldn't be caught dead wearing a slit-high dress simply because he doesn't have the legs for it {100% pasty white don't you know}.

1st off, let me get the obligatory picture out of the way, simply because FaceSlapBook suggested I should liven up my post with one and who am I to disagree with a reputable organization such as them. Right?

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with me and my sense of humor, many years ago, I used to take pictures with a disposable camera and I would subsequently post them on a picture blog called Pictures For Smarties. This is one pic of a recurring character that I had created called Yello Bear. In this pic he is checking out my lunch at a local restaurant that I used to go to some years ago.

Anywho, we're off to do our writing update. For the next few weeks this will be a two-fer, in that I will try to get everyone up-to-dated with the back story of what I'm currently working on.

Back in late 2016/early 2017 I had decided to re-write a vanity published chapbook of mine called "Betrayed!" When I had gotten to about 3 completed chapters written, a blinding case of the obvious hit: I had a slushie prequel to this chapbook already completed and in the can! After rummaging through three large bins, said slushie was found.

Then, another blinding case of the really obvious hit: I could salvage two novels from this slushie and write a trilogy!

Novel #1 became The Friendship Has Begun: "From the friendly confines of a home to the noirish sulfuric wasteland of the late 19th century west, The Friendship Has Begun is the quintessential story of the redemption of a woman's spirit and the salvation of her lost soul."

Here is a little tidbit about book #1 that should impress the creativity genes that we all possess: because the slushie was badly written (originally written in the previous decade, so there you go), the only thing I was able salvage out of the main sub-plot of the slushie was a girl and a bar. Out of that tiny sliver of information, I was able to write a very solid book #1 for this trilogy

Novel #2 will be entitled The Friendship Has Continued, and it will pick up where book #1 ended, which is the wedding and subsequent honeymoon trip. I'm looking at a late Spring/early Summer 2019 release for this.

The other tidbit is that I was able to streamline and properly fill out the main plot of the slushie into a good book the 2nd, clocking in at 15 chapters/55k+ words.

Novel #3 is where I'm currently at. Entitled The Friendship Has Ended, I look to tie up the main plot threads of book #1 (there are at least three that need to be carry forward) and book #2 (two) into book #3.

I currently have roughly 4 1/2 chapters written for this one and even though this novel is the first one that I wrote an outline for (about 4 pages), I'm still finding it difficult to keep track of all plot points that need to be covered and completed. Because this is the actual rewrite of the chapbook, I've decided to make this a two-parter, in that part one will be the continuing fallout of the question at the very end of book #2, while part two will deal with the consequences of that question.

At the present, I'm writing the climax for part one. It's been a difficult piece of writing to say the least, in that I need to merge the two plot points w/o sound cliche and that I need to write the sex scenes so that isn't an adult movie scene (trust me, I can and have done very explicit adult movie scenes for The Inner Sibling).

Tune in next week when I'll have another two-fer writing up-to-date which should get everyone up to speed with my current writings.

As always, you can follow me on Facebook and check out my writings via the side cover pics.

  1. A lot of trilogies have made the part 1 and 2 decision. Good choice! This story does intrigue me. Hopefully this one gets you a bit of acclaim! I'm rooting for you-

  2. I find it's the only way that I can truly keep track of things. That and (barely) staying within the parameters of the original story.


Lay it on me, because unlike others, I can handle it.
