Iron Velvet, Chapter 34, at last!
This one took a while!
I’ve said that before, though, haven’t I?
This time it wasn’t just me bogged down in over-tweaking. We got a new puppy! And he needs a good bit of watching after. He’s the most enthusiastic-about-life bundle of adorable-ness ever. Consequently, I’ve been a little distracted – there’s not be a lot of time to sit and ponder and, yes, over-tweak.
It’s up now though!
This chapter introduces a new character to the story. I was inspired to bring him in after discovering a street performer and artist on YouTube. I was mesmerized and “Billy’s Story” was born, full-blown, in my mind.
You really should watch video I’ll link here before you read the chapter. (It’s short.) You’ll better understand the art that I couldn’t possibly manage in narrative.
Also, this chapter marks quite an anniversary. It first appeared on my old blog quite a while ago. (I don’t even want to tell you how long!) There, I found a comment from the BatB fanfic author Crowmama who actually knows this artist! That message opened the door to a cherished, real-life friendship.
The take-away? Leave comments, find friendships, find family!
And now … on to CHAPTER 34.
Thank you for visiting!
What an intriguing back story! Now I’m even more eager to read this chapter.
And isn’t it lovely how doing something so enjoyable and precious as writing a story can lead to amazing friendships!
Yes! And I so cherish those breakthrough moments and those friendships formed, in real-life and in universe-connection. Writing and sharing is a way of saying “hello?” – showing yourself, a reaching out – exciting, but also kinda scary sometimes. I’m so grateful for every hand of friendship I’ve been offered here. ❤️
