So Missy and I finished something that we feel good about posting. It’s relatively short, only 12 chapters in total. However, I thought I would give you guys a choice. Since many people are working from home or are spending far more time at home than usual, I thought we would let you vote on whether or not you would prefer to get the story all in one go or if you would prefer daily chapter updates. This story is complete so we absolutely could post it all at once. Some people like getting daily updates. Personally, I’m a binger when it comes to stories and I get impatient so I don’t generally read things until they’re complete. Unless it’s Wifey, and then I get to read her stuff before it goes online. (kjwrit is alive and well, by the way, just in case anyone is wondering where the heck she’s at.) So it’s up to you guys, our lovely readers.
SUMMARY: Unable to cope with a horrific childhood, Sookie turned to alcohol. In doing so, it cost her her relationship with Eric. She’s gotten help, thanks in large part to an ultimatum from her ex. Now she’s working on making amends, but not sure how to go about when “I’m sorry” doesn’t seem good enough. Sookie knows that her chances of being forgiven are slim. She’s not sure she could do it if the shoe was on the other foot. Eric’s no saint either. He’s had his own demons to face down, and bad behavior to rectify. While he’s never had to kick an addiction, correcting toxic habits and changing learned behavior can be just as tough to do.
Maybe, just maybe, this is a case where true love can win in the end.
“Some people quit drinking too much
And some people quit lying
Some people decide to grow up
But it’s never good timing
Most wouldn’t forgive what I put you through
But I’m here tonight, hoping some people do.”
– Old Dominion
All at once or daily updates?
Drop a comment to vote and we’ll go by majority rules. I’ll leave this up for voting until Wednesday, April 15th, 2020. If it’s a tie, Missy and I will discuss and break it ourselves. Either way, the first chapter will go up on Thursday.
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
Meg & Missy
