Inked Ch. 22 – LIVE!

Chapter 22, The Experiment, has been posted. I’m imagining that this will be one of the most controversial chapters of the entire story.

Enjoy!

Hi guys.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything personal here.

I’m currently working full-time while searching for another job that hopefully will not make me miserable. It’s been a lot.

The other thing… My best friend of 14 years is very sick. In fact, I believe (not certain) that he might be dying in the near future. It’s not over yet though.

6’2″, 120 pounds, emaciated, and he told me that the HIV that had lain dormant in his body for roughly 7 years activated into full-blown AIDS. He’s been in and out of the hospital for blood infections. My grandfather died of AIDS, and from what my mom and my own doctor say…things do not look good for my friend.

He’s living out of his car. Six days ago, he went completely off of the grid. I can’t reach him, and I live almost 3 hours away. I’m aghast that the hospital would discharge him when he has no place to live.

I have no idea how this will end. I’m in rough shape.

As far as Inked goes, I am planning on posting the next chapter on Tuesday. I’m not sure how long it will take until the chapter afterward will come out. Shit, when I put myself up for biweekly updates, I never imagined that this would happen.

Know that I will not abandon this story, and I hope that the chapter after next comes sooner rather than later.

Ch. 20 Inked – LIVE

Hello all!

I just posted Chapter 20 of Inked, “The New Normal.”

Ch. 20: http://archiveofourown.org/works/9157399/chapters/31405947

I’m so happy about all the awesome feedback I’ve been getting for my last chapter. The kudos, comments, and general love are so appreciated. Since I left you on a royal cliffy, I especially wanted to be timely with this update.

I’m now in a situation where I’m working full-time while hitting the job market full-force. To say that I’ve become busy is almost an understatement, but I will continue to strive for a regular update schedule.

As always, thanks for reading!

Inked Ch. 15 – LIVE

So I forgot to announce over here that chapter 14 came out. So here’s 14 and 15!

I can’t really say anything about them without spoiling them, so… Just check them out!

I’ve enjoyed the direction I’m going in and have found it rewarding to write. I hope you all feel similarly. ❤
