June Note – 6/30/2019

June Note – 6/30/2019

“And then when my wife came back into the living room, I asked her why her friend was acting like such a hoe whenever they go out. Her friend always has all these guys over, having crazy parties and all that, and then–”

“Jesus fucking Christ, please shut the fuck up!”

Luka’s patience had run its course; her mental strength was completely gone, and she didn’t care about hurting his feelings. Looking at her coworker with an angry look, she told him off. “I’m just trying to enjoy my quiet lunch break, and then you come out of nowhere wanting to start a conversation about some bullshit your wife has to deal with. Can you please, for the love of God, go away and let me sleep?”

Luka’s coworker stated back, his glasses starting to fog up from the humid air in the store. His head titled like a curious puppy, trying to process the assault of words he just endured. After a strange few moments of silence, he finally answered.

“So I told my wife my opinion about the situation.”

An annoyed groan came from Luka as she slammed her head onto the small lunch table.

Why do I work with such idiots…?


 

Hello all, and hello summer! It’s that time of the year when the bright yellow star in the sky gives up a longer time in the heat and gives us the chance to enjoy nature’s way of helping us cool down. It’s also that time of the year when it’s eight o’clock at night, but it still looks like it’s six. That can be confusing as hell, right?

Anyways, how have y’all been this month? I didn’t even realize that the entire month came to an end already. Then again, I’ve been going through a lot this month, so I guess being busy all the time made me lost track of time. Hell, sometimes I thought I was a day ahead, thinking it was Tuesday when it was actually Monday. True story.

There’s not much to talk about in this Monthly Note in regards to the website, so this note will be rather short. Stated last month, I began working on updating the website with a new format for posts and an overall new website look. I may even update my logo a bit. I’m still working on that, as I have picked out a few different format options I like. I’m just fine-tuning everything first before it goes live, so bear with me just a bit longer. When it’s up, I’ll create a post.

Normally this is the part of the post where I talk about the website and story work, the longest part of the post. For this month, my life is actually taking the spot light.

Some of you may have read on here or saw some of my Tweets about this, but recently I got accepted into a summer writing internship. I’m so excited for it! This is my first actual job/work related to writing. Although it’s only lasting two months, I’ll be creating articles and content for an upcoming event later this year. It’ll involve me having to interview people—and you guys know I’m not very outward and social—but I will try my best regardless. On top of this, I’ll still be working full-time at my normal day job, so my days will be rather full. But don’t worry, I’ll still keep writing and posting on here. I’ll just have to schedule things a bit earlier than normal, so I want to apologize if things post at weird times or if something gets posted twice.

I’ll also be working on giving more variety on a weekly basis. I also have a special idea that involves your input, but I’m working out the kinks of it. You’ll be in the loop soon!

Sorry if this note seems to be all over the place. Just wanted to keep you guys updated on everything. And as always, if you have questions, feel free to email me or shoot me a tweet!

Love y’all!

May Note – 5/31/2019

May Note – 5/31/2019

The massive stack of boxed wine towered higher than the tallest skyscraper in the city, casting its shadow over the only stock person on shift; Luka couldn’t help but groan at such the large delivery that was brought into the store.

Contemplating just how important the job really was, Luka shrugged yawned, turning around to go to the break room, “Fuck this, I’m going on lunch. Somebody else can take care of it.”

April Note – 4/30/2019

April Note – 4/30/2019

Luka stared at the blank monitor, annoyed at the lack of inspiration coming to mind. In an attempt to try and speed up the process, Luka decided to quickly chug down a favorite beer—one of the Belgian variety—and waited for its affects to hit. After ten minutes of waiting, Luka gave up and sigh.

“Fuck this, let me just jot something down for later.”


 

Hiya, everybody! I’m sorry for tricking you into thinking that this would be a story of some kind. I mean, it still kinda counts as one, but let us not get into technicalities; I hate them. How have you guys been doing? Did you finish any kind of goals you guys set for yourselves? Did you do something unexpected, and now you like it? Took any risks to have fun? Regardless of the result, I hope you all are nice and healthy, and that things are going your way.

I wish I could say the same for me. But you guys don’t have to worry; the website and stories are just fine. As some of you guys may have noticed, I didn’t do a “Monthly Note” for March. Reason being is, last month, I’ve decided to take that plunge into the writing and publishing industry and have been applying for internship in that field. Now, noting the fact that I don’t have a degree or real relevant experience in the field, I’ve been either getting no response from internships or getting rejection letters. Of course it’s discouraging and hurts, but I haven’t let it stop me from sending my resume to jobs in the hopes that I can get a foot in the door. If things all turn in my favor, I can potentially leave my normal day job and move on to a job in this career. Wish me luck!

Now, enough about myself. I know you guys don’t come here to read about my daily, boring life (but if you do, let me know, and I’ll bore you to death.) It’s time to switch topics to the website and story stuff

Recently, throughout April, I’ve been experimenting with story posts. What I’ve been doing is taking the idea behind 100 Word Story and expanding on it. So what my current plan is, Monday through Friday, I will post a 100 Word Story every day, all of them connecting to a single story. To give it some variety, each month with be focused on a different genre or theme. What I eventually want to do is have you guys vote on what the genre or theme of the month will be, so that’s a work in progress. On top of that, I’ll still be posting stories like usual. I’ve been trying to organize myself on what stories I want to finish immediately, which ones can wait and which ones will be on-going. Right now, my key stories are “Home Improvement” and “Don’t You Remember?” I want to apologize if updates to these stories aren’t coming out so quickly, as that’s a thing I’m trying to work on.

On the plus side, I will be more open to posting random tidbits and spontaneous stories I’ve written throughout the month. I know most of my stories are no longer than three pages, and I’m not sure if you guys like it or not. I’m trying to figure out a way where you guys can openly share with me what you like and dislike, but for now, don’t be afraid to send me emails. I’d love to hear feedback on what you guys are thinking.

I’ve also been working on a little personal story project for myself. I haven’t shared anything about it online (kind of) and I don’t really plan on to for the time being. I will give a small idea on what it is: She’s the fastest gunner of the west.

Anyways, I hope I’ve answered any questions y’all have for me. As always, don’t be afraid to contact me or hit me up on Twitter if you have questions or concerns. I’m always available to talk to you lovely people.

I hope you guys have a good one!
P.S: Alex and Sam are trying to figure out what year is it.

February Note – 2/28/2019

February Note – 2/28/2019

Two months down, ten more to go. It just hit me that March starts tomorrow. This year seems to be flying by already.

Hey, everybody! It’s the one, the only Luka. How is everybody doing this year? Have you been sticking to any New Year’s Resolutions? Did you reach any goals you had set for yourself? Hopefully the universe has been hitting you with some good fortunes and prosperity for the rest of the year. Did anything new happen in February, hopefully things that turned for the better? As for me, this month has been rather… hectic in a certain aspect.

Life at home has more or less been the same: nothing new really happened aside from me getting some more books. I did actually buy a new laptop, so that was something I was really excited about. I can run more programs at once without a hitch and I can game a bit better, so there’s that. But besides that, nothing new has been happening at home. It’s at my day job that’s been going through major changes, and not necessarily for the better, neither.

My body has been immensely sore and tired from the last two weeks, having to pick up some extra slack from work overload. We’re currently in need of extra people to help out, but none has came around and it’s making everybody tense and stressed out. And on top of that, one of the my co-workers that I was close to was let go due to certain circumstances, so that had me pretty bummed for a day or two. People always tell me “you’re young, your body will bounce back.” And honestly, nowadays with the hardships of trying to make a living in high-rent areas, being young doesn’t always mean our bodies can take a large amount of stress before we start to break down. However, I am in the process of trying to find something new more suited to what I want to do, which is write—articles, stories, columns and panels, doesn’t matter. I’ve already applied to a few things this month, but I haven’t heard anything back yet. Let’s hope something sticks and I can move onto something new!

Now, it’s time for the website updates!

There are none. And that’s not even a joke; I don’t really have any new updates coming for the website. Earlier this month, I began updating the tabs and sorting systems for whenever I make a new post. I deleted some categories and created some new ones for when people want to browse through specifics in stories and posts. I’ve also been running through all of my previous posts and updating and changing their tags and categories as well in order to be more in-tune with the new update. I’ll also be doing some light editing of everything as well for little typos and errors I’ve made. I have been thinking about changing the page layout as well to a new template, but that won’t really be occurring within the next month or two, just light changes for now.

As for updates with story works, nothing too big to report. I’m almost done with the Child at Play series and began working on the next horror story. Work has continued on Don’t You Remember? and it will begin new updates starting March 2nd. I just realized that March starts in, like, a day, so I’ll let you guys know in a week if I’ll be doing March Monster Madness again this year. However, if there’s some kind of monthly trend going on for March, I might try to dabble with that instead. Alex and Sam’s Daily Life is still on hiatus, but not for long. And aside from those things, I don’t really have any major projects coming up. I’m trying to limit my workload so I don’t burn myself out too quickly.

Sorry that this Monthly Note was so brief and not too many new things are happening. As always, I would like to thank everybody who takes the time out of their day to read my work, and I appreciate and love every single one of you guys!
Enjoy the rest of your day and be on the lookout for new stories!

Love, Luka.

January Note – 1/31/2019

January Note – 1/31/2019

HAPPY NEW– Nah, fuck it. Using an opening line like that would have been a month old at this point. I probably should have opened up with some kind of cheesy pun like I do with my usual posts. Then again, I’ve been feeling a bit down and tired lately. I hope I have a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

There… I did it… You’re welcome.

Okay, but seriously, how have all you guys been doing in the first month of the new year? Have you been keeping up with any resolutions you made? Did you start off the year on a positive note? Personally, I’ve been doing okay; work’s been hectic, and the city has been in a freeze like every other week, so there’s that. I’ve also been reading a lot more, like a lot more—I have at least a dozen novels I need to go through, and that’s not including the tons of manga I haven’t touched yet. I managed to throw myself back into video games again. I actually just finished the Resident Evil 2 remake that came out on the 25th and I had a blast through all of it, even though I played on the hardest difficulty and died a lot. But enough of my personal life. Let’s get onto the story stuff!

But before that, I have an announcement to make. As of Sunday, January 27th, I finally reached 100 followers on WordPress. When I got the notification saying that I reached that achievement, I honestly thought I was seeing things. Even now, I’m still surprised that that many people became followers for my website. And then on the 29th, I hit 1000 likes across everything I’ve posted. I know that in today’s day and age, numbers like these are barely anything, but for an average person like me, this is one of the biggest achievements I’ve ever had for myself. And the only way I could reach numbers like this is because of you lovely people. I’m truly grateful for every single person who reads my stories, whether it’s every time a new one gets post, or just on a select series that only updates once a month. It makes me happy seeing people comment on things they liked and voicing their opinions. And there are many of you who’s actually been following my work since I barely had anything to share, so you guys are absolute veterans and have seen how my work’s changed and grew over time (and hopefully getting better, too.) And all of the people who started following within recent months, I’m ecstatic that you’re sticking around and bearing with me with my works. I truly appreciate everybody, and I couldn’t make it this far without you.

Now, onto the main points. Don’t worry, it’s brief.

January has been a testing ground for me in terms of creating a stable and doable posting schedule. And although a lot of the things I posted lately haven’t really been too long, it has been taking some time to type up. In case anybody didn’t know, I am a fan of classic story-writing using pencil and paper, and when a story is complete, I type it up. That alone is a process. However, for the 100 Word Story stuff I do, I generally type up all of those since it’s a lot easier for me to keep track of my word total, making sure I don’t go over. And yes, I seriously follow that rule, those stories being exactly one hundred words. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to come up with a nice little test run schedule. I’ll be posting three times a week, two of those posts consisting of two 100 Word Story posts. The third post will be a longer story, ranging anywhere between 500 to 1000 words. I’m going to continue testing out posting like that, so bear with me for the time being.

As for current series stuff, I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll make this quick. The current story for Legends of the Dark – Child at Play is nearing its finale. I wanted it to go for a bit longer, but I have other things I want to work on, so I’m trying to wrap it up. Don’t You Remember will be returning within two weeks after a hiatus. As for Alex & Sam, I’m thinking really hard about this one, as I may want to restart them to change up some details to make it a bit more easy to work with. If you have any questions about smaller series I’ve done in the past, feel free to email me and I’ll answer them as best as I can.

Wow, I didn’t realize how long this thing was going to be—I hit the second page of my word processor. I guess once my fingers start typing up what my brain is thinking, I can’t stop. However, I need to force the break or else this would go onto being the length of a short story… I like that idea. I’ll save that for later. But anyways, that’s it for this Monthly Note. Once again, I want to thank all of you guys for sticking by me this entire time, and I hope I’ve been doing right in your eyes.

Thanks for reading!

– Love, Luka.

Luka’s 2018 Year-End Round-Up

Luka’s 2018 Year-End Round-Up

I did my best! Or, at least, I tried to do my best.

Geez, I didn’t realize just how quickly 2018 has went. So much has happened this year, both good and bad, but that’s just how life is. Okay, that all I’m gonna do for the boring philosophy for this post. Time to move onto the better stuff!

Just the other day I was looking at all of the stuff I wrote across this entire year, and I’m actually surprised by how many things I managed to share with the world. So many various dark and murder scenes, stupid lines that made me fall on my ass and laugh, and even a few things that made me tense up and cringe about what was happening. There were so many stories where I had a page or two of decent writing done that I never finished, but left on the back burner just in case I ever got around to finishing it (I didn’t.) And then there were numerous pages where only one line was written, and I had no memory whatsoever about why I wrote that. All those hours of me staring at a blank page or a blank screen just waiting for an idea to come eventually turned into the dozens of stories I’ve written this year. And I’m actually pretty proud of myself. I honestly thought I would give up on everything by this year was over, but I fought that fear and kept pushing on. And I’ll keep on pushing straight through 2019!

The more I wrote this year, the more I began to understand what I truly enjoy writing the most, what’s the hardest thing for me to try and write, and what I need to improve on to make my writing better. As it may be a bit obvious to see, I’ve been writing a lot of horror stuff of various kinds, mostly ending with some kind of character death or gruesome scene. I’ve also been writing a lot of stories where there’s a villain who completely decimates the hero or some innocent soul caught in the crossfire. And honestly, I really, really like stories like those. So heads up for next year: get ready to see some horrific and bloody villains and anti-heroes!

Alright, enough about the good parts of me. Time to focus on you, the readers who’ve been reading my stuff! You have no idea how much I’m grateful and how much I appreciate each and every single person who visits my site and read my works. When I first started out writing in high school I never showed anybody my stories—I wrote for fun. Now, just a couple of years later, I got people who want to see my stuff. Now I’m writing for fun for myself and for others. I never imagined that I would start a website just for that. And it’s all because of all you wonderful people who remember my website or keep up with what I post on social media, and I love all of you because of it. When I first started the website, I assumed that the only people who would see my site would be people in the United State, the same country where I live. But as time went on people from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, India, Scotland, Russia, and dozens of other countries that I could list (but won’t because that list would be too damn long) started reading my works, and I was surprised as hell. There are people from literally all over the world to keep up with my stuff, and it just brings a giant smile to my face. I can’t thank you guys enough for it.

I’m sorry for the lack of posting in December. My jobs was in the holiday rush and I was burnt out every day, so I was just trying to rest whenever I can. But don’t worry. It’s almost over and I’ll be back to normal in just one more week. So prepare for more stories again!

I’m terrible at closing articles, I’m just gonna leave you guy with this.

Thank you every person who reads my stories, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year, and I’ll see you all in 2019!

October/November Note – 11/6/2018

October/November Note – 11/6/2018

Hey, everybody. It’s Luka T. How have you all been the last few weeks? How was your Halloween night? Did any of you take your children, or younger family members, out for candy in costumes? I went to a Halloween party thrown by my job, but it was also a Going-Away party for one of my co-workers. Lots of alcohol, ridiculous outfits, and bittersweet words took over the entire night. But enough about work. Let me get to the heart of this Monthly Note.

As it’s clearly been seen, the number of posts I’ve been uploading took a sharp dip over the last three weeks. And, as much as I hate myself for saying this, I didn’t fulfill my promise of doing Spooktober, which I’m heavily sorry for not doing. October was a… hard month for me. Not in terms of financial status, or something devastating occurring in my life. For most of the month, my body was just so mentally tired and physically exhausted from working and balancing a social life, that I burned myself out of writing for a little bit. So, more or less, I took an abrupt and unannounced hiatus to help recharge. That entire time, I put a pause on all ongoing projects, so I am backed up on work to do. I have done small writing things here and there during it, but nothing too major that I necessarily want to post—I’ll be taking some time soon to sort through it all and see if there’s anything I want to expand on.

For the next two months, I’ll be much busier at work since the holiday season is rapidly closing in. What I want to do is, even if I can’t update the major projects on a regular basis, I want to keep the 100 Word Story posts still going, to at least give you guys something new to read, even if it’s only a few seconds to help you kill some time. Also, a quick update on the website change. I’ve decided that I’ll roll out the new layout once the new year starts, sort of like a fresh start to a brand new year of works to come. Patreon most likely won’t be happening soon as well, so don’t worry about that. And in case anybody is worried, no, I’m not feeling discouraged about giving up writing recently. I can assure you of that. Recently, my job has found me much more reliable to help getting tasks done, so I’m often just mentally burnt out every day after work, so I tend to unwind by just turning off my brain and playing games until its time to go to sleep. And on my off days, I’ve been lounging around, either catching up on much needed sleep, or staring at my T.V. all day. I’m not making excuses for my lack of stories, because that’s unfair to so many of you faithful readers. I really appreciate every single person who takes the time out of their day to read the things I put out, whether it’s the quick 100 Word stories, or the longer chapter and episodic stories. I really mean that, and I thank you all.

But, don’t let me get too sappy. I don’t want to stain my laptop with some salty tears. I figured I’d use this post to give you guys a brief update on how thing’s are going. Like always, if you’re ever curious about things in my life, or just want to ask questions, you can always email me. I’d love to hear from you guys!

September Note – 9/29/2018

September Note – 9/29/2018

Hey everybody, Luka here. Back with another Monthly Note, this time, featuring the cooling month of September. Want to know something funny? I completely forgot that Fall officially started on the 22nd. My brain was still stuck in Summer mode. Although, the recent trend of sixty-six degree weather should have given me a hit that it was time for a seasonal change, but it completely flew over my head. And I’m not surprised–this entire month has been one long up-and-down roller-coaster for me. I don’t really like going into too much detail about my personal aches with my day-to-day stuff, so I’ll make it brief.

My job has been becoming one giant stress ball of unrelenting complaints, sudden increases in work load, and an undesired happiness killer. Just thinking about work makes me want to consider if this job is even worth giving up my mental stability. Like, after coming home from work on many occasions, I don’t even feel like writing; I just want to take a shower, eat, and just binge on T.V or play my games so that way I can just shut my brain off. And it’s been hurting my website because of it.

I’ll admit, my posts have been getting more and more spaced out, and shorter in length, and I really do apologize for it. I have a ton of different projects I have lined up that I want you all to read, but I’ve been just taking it slower than usual. And it’s making me feel bad that I’m going so long between updates for current stories and projects. It even reached a point for a bit where I questioned if I should even continue updating the website with new works; I contemplated shutting it down completely.

But don’t worry, I won’t be doing that. For now, I’m just going to try and get myself back to my normal state of mind and writing. I’ll be back to normal in no time.

Now that the boring stuff is gone, I’ll go into small detail about what’s to come. October is just a few days away, and you know what that means. Spooktober is coming back! I’ll be thinking about what kind of stuff I want to do for the month, so I’ll be writing a new post about what to expect for Spooktober in about a week or so, so stay on the lookout for that.

I’m still working on current projects, so what I’m thinking about doing is, instead of making an update for one project on specific days, I may drop a chapter for everything all  in one day. Meaning, I’ll drop a new chapter for three projects all within the same day. I’ll do that once or twice until I feel like everything is up-to-date and ready. The big three project for this are the usual contenders: Alex & Sam’s Daily Life, Don’t You Remember, and Legends of the Dark. I may throw in one more as a bonus, but I’ll think about it.

Now, onto the final topic.

It’s been two years since I first posted stories on my website, and I felt like I’ve grown as a writer since then. For many who don’t know, my very first post was a fan-fiction series of a video game I’ve always played ever since I was a kid. The game series was called Tenchu, and it’s about two ninjas named Rikimaru and Ayame, and it goes through the various kinds of missions they’ve had to do: assassinations, rescues, scouting, things ninjas are usually used for. The story I was working on was focused around these two characters, and two others who were introduced well into the game series’ story-line, while using characters I thought of as well. So what I was thinking about doing is redoing the entire story I’ve done. It would most likely follow the same plot I had in mind, but I feel like the writing would be better and easier to image, considering the number of fight scenes and espionage I had written. It’s not set in stone yet, but it’s something in the back of my mind. In case you’re curious about how I first started out writing, you can check out the Tenchu story anytime by clicking the link, or by going to the Category drop-down list, and clicking “Tenchu” under the “Fan Fiction” section towards the top.

Well, that’s all for this Monthly Note. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email anytime. Sorry for making this one so long.

Enjoy the rest of September, and see you in October!

August Note – 8/26/2018

August has been one hell of a month. It’s officially been a year since I started my job, the summer anime season is about to come to a close, and I have even more books that I bought and still haven’t finished yet. But me complaining isn’t the main reason for these monthly notes.

How have you guys been? Did you enjoy your time in the sun and heat? Personally, I’ve been trying my best to try and stay out of it. Of course, working a delivery job forces me to endure the scorching heat that happens in a city from time-to-time. Speaking of work, I’ve been trying to find a new job for the past few weeks. Sadly, nothing came through, not even interviews. It’s a bit disheartening, but I’m not giving up on trying to find something new. However, I do have a plan in place. I’m working on it, but I’ll keep updates on it.

Now onto the main topic: the writing and website. And I have the perfect thing to start with.

I’m sorry I’ve only been posting the “100 Word Story” posts. I haven’t been making much progress in a couple stories that I’ve been working on. It’s not that I don’t have the drive to continue on, it’s just I’ve been so tired and stressed from work that all I’ve wanted to do was just lie back and take it easy. But even then, that’s still no excuse for the lack of story-work I’ve been meaning to push out, so I’m going to try and get back to my old self.

Next, I haven’t trashed any of the main projects that I’ve posted about, namely “Alex & Sam’s Daily Life” and “Don’t You Remember?” I plan on keeping Alex and Sam going for quite some time and bringing Don’t You Remember to completion. I’m also working on a new horror story that I plan on sharing in a little bit. I just want to make sure it’s going in the right direction before letting you guys read it.

Next on the list is the Patreon thing. I honestly forgot I had a plan for this. I was so focused on trying to find a new job that Patreon became one of the last things on my list. Am I outright saying that I won’t make one? No. I’m sure I’ll eventually set one up, but I feel like I need to be in a better place before making a huge jump to something like that. So for now, don’t expect a Patreon from me.

Is there anything else that I want to touch base on? Nothing major that I can think of. Aside from the fact that I’m going to keep posting stories of any genre and graphic content, both gruesome and on the erotic side, nothing new is really going to happen. I still want to find a good time to rework the search and sidebar categories, so there’s that to look forward to. All in all, I’m trying my best to continue writing new content for you guys to read. And remember, don’t be afraid to email me if you have questions or ideas about things I could try and make the website or content better.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

July Note – 7/24/2018

July Note – 7/24/2018

Hey, everybody. How’s your summer in July been? Went out to the pool and splashed around? Slept under the sun and got a nice sun tan (or sunburn if  you have fair skin?) My own summer has been rather… boring. Nothing but work outside during the heatwave, feeling light-headed under the blazing sun, and having breathing problems form the hot air. But enough about me walking through Hades and back: time for the monthly update!

Now let me start off by saying I’m sorry about not posting so much during July. Most of the stuff I’ve put have been the 100 Word Story things, which is now a new collection I want to do. I’ve also been steadily updating Don’t You Remember, which I do plan on finishing. I’ve just been so tired from work that I’ve just been barely typing up stories to post on the site. I’ve been hand-writing a lot of things, so I’m sure I have a few short thing you guys may like. I just need to spend a day or two typing everything up and making them all look pretty. So, yeah, I’m sorry for the lack of content so far.

Now, onto the major updates. I’m still planning on reworking the tabs and sidebar of the website. I’m thinking about making most of the stories and works be categorized by genre. The only exception to that rule will be series or collections that have multiple chapters, such as Alex and Sam’s Daily Life. I’ve also thought about bringing back Legends of the Dark, so look out for that as well. I’m just thinking about how I should categorize something as a series, like should it be at least five chapters long or three? Just the minor details.

Another update I’m thinking about is setting up a Pateron. I’m a but skeptical about this because I’ve been free-to-read ever since I started the website two years ago. If I do make one, it’ll probably be completely difference series that won’t be posted here, or it may just be bonus scenes for certain stories. I have’t really thought about it, but I want your guys input on the idea.

Final topic is: that’s it. Those are really the two things I wanted to focus on. I’ve been writing a lot offline and just need to spend a day typing things up. I’m also trying to decide what stories I want up. I have dozens of ideas to write out, and many of them seem to be dozens of chapters long, which would only make it longer for me to share them with you guys. Which actually brings up an important question:

Would you guys rather have chapters and stories be posted as soon as they’re finished and possibly wait some time for the next one, or would you rather wait for a bit and then have multiple chapters released at a steady pace? 

Think about that and let me know your thoughts. Feel free to comment or email me directly; I would love to hear form you guys!

June Note – 6/6/2018

It’s weird to see days where the temperature is in the 60s for most of the day. Though, being between 60 and 70 degrees is perfect weather for me. It’s not too hot and nice to have a light jacket if I want it.

Hello to the month of June and hello to y’all, the readers. How you doin’?

Now, for those who have been keeping up with these, I normally save the monthly note for about after the first half of the month is over, when I’ve started posting a bit. But this one is really early into the month, not even the first full week has gone by. Reason being that I have a few ideas on my mind that I wanted to let you all know beforehand, whether or not some of these happen or not.

The first thing on the agenda: Site Change and Update.

When I was looking at the drop-down list on the sidebar of the website, I felt like it was a bit cluttered. There are tabs for thing that only happen at a certain time of year or were only a one-time thing. So, what I was thinking was to change the different options to things being genre specific, while having the major, long term projects to have their own thing as well. I haven’t fully decided on that yet, but I should have the new sidebar in effect by the end of the month.

Second: Posting Frequency and Quantity.

Lately, I’ve found my passion for hand-writing my stories out in notebooks and then typing them up for posting. I feel like I get a lot more of a story put out that way and they’re better quality like this. That being said, I may limit my major posts to about twice a week. For a while, I’ve felt like you guys would want various kinds of things to read throughout the week.

I have a bunch of different story ideas, some already being worked on and some taking the back burner until my work load lightens up, so instead of a weekly schedule, I may do like a monthly schedule. It would let me get out more stories and still give me time to prepare the next chapter, if certain ones are going to be long-term. If I still have a small page or two story to put out, I’ll just do it.

Last: Nothing.

You were expecting there to be a third topic, weren’t to? Well, no for this post. These two topics were on my mind a lot, so I wanted to inform you guys of the possible changes coming, to keep you guys in the loop. Some things aren’t final yet, but they’re in the process of being sorted out. Nonetheless, I will continue to put things out for you all to read whenever you have free time or want to distract yourself from work just like I do.

That’s all for now, everybody. Enjoy the rest of your day!

May Note – 5/21/2018

It’s officially spring, y’all! Do you know what that means? It’s fucking allergy season. Be prepared to hear a whole lot of stuffy nose blowing, dramatic sneezing that can’t be faked, and bloodshot eyes that makes people look demonic.

I personally suffer from year-round allergies, but spring is when it all flares up. And believe me, IT SUCKS.

But enough about snot and boogers. It’s another monthly update, and I’m here just to share my progress on some stuff. First and foremost, I’ve officially started a new erotic story that I plan to update every Saturday, if I manage to get the chapter done by then. For those who haven’t been keeping up with my unusual post releases, The series is called “Don’t You Remember?” and it follows a woman named Sara. After waking up in the bed with a mysterious woman, Sara tries to retrace her footsteps to figure out just what the hell happened and how she ended up there. Yes, it may be a bit cliche, but hey, I’m trying. Part One is ready to read, and Part Two was recently posted on Saturday, May 19th. Feel free to take a look if you’re into that kind of stuff.

Second. I more or less have the next chapter of Alex and Sam finished. I just have to do some editing and change some things around, and it’ll be ready for you guys to read. I’m still trying to figure out if I want to change a few details, not really about Alex and Sam as characters, but more or less about certain details, like where they live and other characters that appear in the story. But I’ll figure that out eventually.

Third, but not too important so this part is extremely short, I’ve been reading a lot more lately, so every now and then I’ll be posting a review of what I read and will be adding the category “Book Reviews” to the drop down list. I’ll try to add a post for every book I finish, if I remember.

Lastly, I know I’ve said this before, but I really do appreciate everybody who comes and visits this my website. I know I’m terrible when it comes to posting stuff on a regular schedule, but I I’m really grateful for all those who read my work. Many of you have also been around ever since I first started gaining followers, so to know that there’s both new people and returning readers is a major lift to confidence in myself. And I want to thank all of you for that. On the same tone, please, don’t be afraid to leave comments, suggestions, or send me emails just saying “Hi” or whatever. I really like hearing about your opinions and any questions you guys may have. However, if I have likes on my stories and nobody going bat-shit crazy over tiny error and grammatical mistakes, I must be doing something, right? I didn’t go to college or anything and I’m more-or-less self-teaching myself grammar, so I’m sure I’m making mistakes left and right. Regardless, don’t be afraid to let me know about things you liked, things you didn’t like, things you want to see more off, etc. In case you want to email me, my contact and social information are here at the Contact Luka page.

Well, that’s all for now. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day, or night depending on when you’re reading this.
