Back to School

Week8

As mentioned before, as of next week I’ll be back to school, a few days after I write my next blog. When I left school to focus on actually making rent and all that jazz, I was weirdly optimistic and assumed that maybe I could make it on erotica and work, and didn’t need school anymore. Boy, was I wrong. I’ll need to fix that assumption this year, among others.

My biggest break in writing, I think, was when I concentrated on school and its endeavors, and put writing on a bit of a hold. And by ‘a bit of a hold,’ I mean the better part of around 9 months. As I always do, I pledge to do my best for my readers, but I think we all, myself included, have learned by this point that I really don’t know my own future or where I’m going. I guess the most improtant point I want to stress by saying that is, ‘Have patience but hold me accountable.’

That said, I’ve never been in a situation before where I had both patrons and school on my plate, so perhaps that will make things different. I don’t know, but I guess I’m going to find out. Here’s to the future, cheers.

As well, in website janitorial/’I fucked up’ news, the original page for the latest chapter was a blog post, not a site page. Thanks to the eagle-eyed viewer that pointed that out. It’s fixed now.

In terms of news on the next content, the votes on what I write next are tied between The Good, The Bad and The Molly Chapter 7, and a standalone piece called Only If You Want, which follows a minor character from another story that I’d wager you all know well. If the votes are tied, I’ll just pick one of the two to work on, but I’ll update you next week. And if you want to sway the vote either way, you can also become a patreon on Patreon.com/BashfulsScribe, shameless plug, blah blah blah.

Lastly, a viewer contacted me recently to ask if I could introduce a plugin on this website to support reader modes on different browsers. I looked into it, found a nice plugin, downloaded it, then tried to plug it into my website, then WordPress stopped me and said, “Hey, buddy. I got no problem with you using plugins, but if you wanna do that, you’s gonna pay me and my goons 10$ a month to do it, capisce?” Ugh. $120 a year is a bit too steep for me right now. Once I get the ball rolling with this endeavor, perhaps, but for now I sadly have to say I’m not equipped to commit to that kind of payment. However, it’s become another goal to add to the horizon, so I guess that’s nice.

That’ll do it for this week. Any comments or what-have-you, you all know how to reach me (here in the comments or at bashfulscribe@gmail.com if you don’t). I appreciate you all, and I’ll talk to you next week.

    1. I don’t want to make them seem that bad. My main point was that in order to get a decent quality website, you do have to pay up. If you want to make a website for your writing, WordPress isn’t a bad choice. (And let me know if/when you ever do make a website!)

  1. Luckily, reader mode on iOS Safari works just fine with your stories – I don’t always read lengthy narratives on my phone, but it is rather useful in that it allows me to lay down and navigate with my left hand while giving my right… *ahem* freedom of movement. Thanks for your work, Being More Social in particular really appeals to my taste and I think that us being approximately the same age and of as similar personality type gives it an extra tinge of relatability to draw me in (and I’ll admit characters being young and inexperienced has an erotic excitement for me, more the idea of it and the rush of hormone-filled memories it conjurers than actually being attracted to teenagers, which is why fiction is a great outlet for that part of my sexuality). Keep up the good work my dude

    1. I don’t think anyone has to feel guilty about liking erotic stories about high schoolers. It’s not like we’re imagining having sex with 15-year-olds, we’re just remembering being 15 and having hormones and having sexual crushes on classmates. It’s nostalgia, at least to me.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the story. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
