Lots of fun stories coming, so stay tuned and be sure to send in an ask if you have any questions!

The Road Not Taken will update three times a week, Sunday at 9pm est, Tuesday at 9pm est and Thursday at 9pm est.

These dates are chosen around my own personal schedule, and will remain in effect until such time as I need to shift my schedule. Any temporary adjustments will be announced here on this blog.

(The next update is tonight at 9pm est)

Alright, I shoulda known it’s been too long since this question came up. Time to clear a few things in the air again.

First off, the other AUs are not to be confused with ‘side projects.’ I might consider a prompt a side project, or these asks. But the AUs are fully fledged stories that we put a lot of time and effort into and I will not accept them being sidelined.

For example, BA is at its tenth story.

We are currently writing the sixth part of BL with plans for plenty more.

These stories are actually going to be longer than the majority of stories in BA, since I have fantastic support and a great writing partner now. The ideas continue to flow and haven’t stopped.

On the subject of BA, since this one is a little more tender for myself.

During the fall, I had a falling out with my editor. I don’t like to spread anything, so the full story won’t be told. It boils down to the fact that they wanted to tell me what to write for stories I had already envisioned and they helped find a monster to fit the part. When they started to poke and prod for information on what I was writing constantly, not to mention wanting to tell me what to write, I had to tell them to stop, and later broke things off completely from what was becoming a toxic friendship.

Because of this, I hit the dreaded wall of writer’s block.

I’ve since recovered (mostly) from it, but BA is not being written as fast anymore. So though I do continue on with my planned storyline, I will not be able to support a chapter a week.

Also, I work a high-stress, full time job. Having more than one story posting at a time was a drain for me. Which is why after LoS is complete, we will not be switching back. The entire point of me switching to one story at a time was to reduce the amount of stress I have at home while I’m doing what I love. Don’t expect this to change.

The poll goes up tomorrow, so know that the story that is voted in will be what is posting next. Choose wisely, and know that many weeks of love and work went into them, just like for BA!

—Also, if anyone knocks @neonthewrite‘s efforts for these stories, please remember that she puts just as much work into them as I do, and her characters were invited in by yours truly.
