Re-Posting and Outtakes

Hola, Jacksonites.

I know it's been a while since I spoke about the outtakes I had swirling around in my head, so I thought I'd let you know what's gonna happen.

As I mentioned before, I did start writing the outtakes. Outtakes, though, can only really be effective if they're fluid, if they seem like a natural extension of the story. TWIO has had me in such an E/B angst mood that the C, CD outtakes were veering into a direction that I didn't want and didn't mesh with the final epilogue. So, I've decided to kill two birds with one stone.

Starting next week (hopefully), I'll be editing and re-posting C, CD from the very beginning. I've grown a lot as an editor/beta in the past three years since the story first posted (it's been 3 years?!), and as I was going over the first few chapters recently, I wasn't happy with blatant mistakes I had made. Not only will my OCD be taken care of, but I'll be able to get back into Jackris mode.

As of right now, I have no idea how many set chapters will post a week. I'd like to think two (Wednesdays and Saturdays) considering some of those chapters are around the 17K word mark (yikes!). I'm hoping my mojo will go into overdrive and allow me to edit more than two a week, so it doesn't take me 3 months to re-post the whole story.

Does this sound kosher to everyone? Yes? No? You hope I get drop-kicked into next Tuesday?


Con Amor Siempre,
Iris

P.S. For those interested and may not have heard, there will be 3 C, CD outtakes. They'll cover what happened between For The Record (Epilogue Part One) and Always Be My Baby (Epilogue Part Two).
