Yes (gasp), it’s two chapters in two weeks. The next chapter of NIS is up, so I hope you enjoy it. Mayhap there will even be another next week.
There’s been some things that I’ve wanted to write about regarding one of the sites that I post at, but I found out something today that made me pretty unhappy. So rather than rant about the site, as I was going to, I’ve got a new topic. Quite frankly, I would rather be ranting about the site.
You see, a while ago, I was contacted by a fan and asked to write a story for one of her friends as a present. Now, I should tell you, I don’t usually take those kinds of requests. Certainly not unless I’m getting paid. But … it seemed like the right thing to do, and I was able to put something together. Mind you, I never met — or even emailed with — the person that it was for.
So. I wrote the story and sent it off. Apparently, it was well received by the person it was for, and I was content, as it’s always nice to know your work is appreciated. Life goes on.
I was told today that the woman who I wrote the story for was killed in a completely senseless accident.
Keep in mind, I never met her, or communicated with her. But I was told enough about her to get a sense of the person. I find that news of her passing has made me very sad. Perhaps that’s odd. I mean, I never knew her, nor even had any conversation with her. Perhaps it’s the complete randomness of what happened that got to me. But I can’t help thinking that it was such a waste for something like this to have occurred. She had turned 28 at the end of October.
