Hi Jim;
I know exactly how you feel. It's my motivation for me too. I think sometimes I get burned out, so I usually wait it out and all of a sudden I am back. Meanwhile I walk around and feel bad about it. So it's nice to be able to come here and spill! (still not getting the feeling for the next book/part of Nikos story....sigh, but I will come sooner or later)
Thanks for putting this forum up.

I agree 100% with all you have said Roland. This is such a great site to read, write and learn. The friends I have formed are wonderful too. People come and go here like anywhere, on line and in real life. On this site, we have people like ourselves that have a love of writing, so yes we do need to support them with our votes and comments. It encourages us to keep on improving. So I will take the hint and do way better then I have been. Have to stop being lazy and make a habit of getting here and putting my two cents in.
Thanks for the kick in the pants my friend!

Adventures Across the Starways - Chapter 23

Sive watched as Fido and his co mutineers were lead off the bridge. She was hoping she could slip away and take a shower. The past few hours had left her feeling dirty and slightly sick to her stomach! She was hot sweaty and could still taste Fido in her mouth. It would feel so good to get all traces of the vile man washed off her. She sighed knowing she had lost her chance when she...

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 7

Rówann had been surprised when Ella had introduced herself as Lass, but it had confirmed his suspicions. She had been magicked somehow and who knew how long it would be until it wore off. Still, it seemed some good had come of it as they now understood each other. He had obliged her by getting the small bag from the tree and then placing it in his saddlebag. When they stopped for lunch,...

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 6

Rówann was not having a very enjoyable morning. Whatever it was that he was tracking, he knew it was not human. Nothing human could move through a place like this and leave barely any signs of passing. He was having to go at such a slow pace so as not to lose the trail that it felt like he was hardly making any progress at all. In the few hours, he estimated that he had barely gone a mile...

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 5

The next morning Ella woke up and yawned mightily stretching out her arms. She hadn't slept so well in a very long time. How she knew that, she didn't really have a clue, just that she felt good.  She sat up and looked around. She seemed to be in a forest of sorts and her bed which was under a large oak tree was made of grass and moss. As she thought about it, a small man carrying a pile...

Taken by a Highlander- chapter 4

Once horse and riders drew near the edge of the forest, they halted. Ella looked up at the wondrously tall trees. She had seen her fair share of forests in her travels, but nothing like this one. It seemed very ancient, and dark within. She shivered getting a sense of other worldliness. She frowned, wondering what kind of hazards could be in a Scottish forest? Maybe a few wolves? She shook...

                                        The Forbidden Forest   As they rode across the moors, Ella kept from freaking out by trying to figure out what the man's last words meant. If she could only picture them in her mind, then she would have a chance to decipher them. Meanwhile, the horse's gallop devoured up the miles. Every once in a while Ella tried to push herself away from her...

Taken by a Highlander - chapter 2

Ella drove on the highway for a short while before sighting a gravel road that looked interesting. She turned onto the road and continued for at least forty-five minutes before she came to a place she thought would be perfect for her picnic. The view was spectacular. Purple blooming heather surrounded her on rolling hills. It took her breath away. Taking the basket, her book and a blanket...

Taken by a Highlander

Chapter 1. Scotland Donella, known as Ella since she was a wee lass had dreamed of this trip for as long as she could remember. The 22-year old woman was rather small, being only five feet two inches in her stocking feet. It must be said she was proportioned in just the right places. She had slightly curly long dark almost black hair that she usually kept in a messy bun at the nape of her...

Adventures Across the Starways - Chapter 22

Smithe fell to the floor, suddenly going limp. Darla's breathing started to slow. Blinking in puzzelment, she stared at his still form. " After all that time wanting me, is that all there is?"  She thought to herself as she bent over the unconscious man. She frowned feeling cheated. “Hey we aren't finished,” she cried out as she shook him. Sive stuck her head out of the open panel, with a...

Adventures Across the Starways - Chapter 21

Sive leaned against the wall while listening to Murdock’s plan. She knew he had his own agenda, but for now, she needed him, and his plan needed her. “So that's pretty much it. Any questions or do you have anything to add?” he asked. Sive bit her lip thinking what to say. “Doctor?” Murdock asked raising his eyebrow at her. Trying to keep her temper in check she replied, "First off call me...
