    I just finished another rereading of this. And since I posted on HoG the other day, I figured it wouldn't be fair for me to ask for more of that story and not ask for more of this one. :p

    *hides behind chair* Not that kind of hog Miss Piggy. HoG, aka Heart of Gold, one of Lisa's other stories that is sorely in need of an update. *hint hint*

    Heh. Funny. "Hog" has entirely positive connotations in my mind. A hog could be a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, for instance, and that's the first thing I think of. Both of my parents have one of those. Then of course I think of HoG as in Heart of Gold, which is very long and has lots of chapters. OR, it could be HOG, the Harley Owner's Group, which also has lots of chapters, but an entirely different kind of chapters... All very good things! I mean, I suppose it could be used as a verb, when someone's hogging the blankets or the spotlight or other such things. THAT definition is certainly in my vocabulary. But oddly enough, I hardly ever use the word for the definition that most people probably think of first, which is as a noun, referring to a pig, of course, and... and please don't mind my rambling. I'm just geeking out about language. I do that from time to time.

    Anyway. ...What was I doing here? Posting? I don't remember why I'm posting. I only meant to be lurking. Actually, I MEANT to be decorating the tree just now... or possibly playing a game. I don't remember which. Wait, no! I meant to be going to the bank. I think. Or, no, it was the tree thing, wasn't it? Oh dear. Please excuse me. I need to go remember what I'm doing.

    And this entire story, ladies and gentlemen, is why it is so IMPORTANT to look both ways before crossing the street! And also why you need to be careful about where you play and drive... :(

    Great story, Lisa! :)

    Hey Lisa... hope you're doing well. I know you haven't been around in a while, but if you see this, please know that an update to any of your stories would be much appreciated. :)

    Maybe by the time Lisa gets back, I'll finally have finished Heart of Gold (or at least, all the current posts.):) Give her her space, guys. We all have different phases in our lives, and I'm sure she'll roll back to us when she's ready.

    Makes me wonder how the authors feel about nagging…

    It can be annoying sometimes, especially if your life circumstances are preventing you from updating at that particular point. Whenever people ask me to update stories and I can't do it, it can feel like I'm letting them down. But I'm grateful for the support even when I'm not writing, and I've gotten to the point where I accept that if I can't do it I can't do it, and not get upset about it, because I plan to and come back to it. Most of the time though, it's just encouraging, and I'm grateful that every reader that I have. It's nice to know that your writing s meaningful enough that people miss it. I've taken breaks from this site time and time again, but in the end I always come back to it. In my opinion, nagging is a valuable motivator, as long as you are polite about it, and all of my reviewers most certainly are. :)

    I can't speak for Lisa, but sometimes people take a very long break from things that they love and then come back.
