Hipshot!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 13, 2012, 5:30 PM


Hey there, sparrows! ♥

Long time no see! Okay, okay, not terribly long. :> We're well into July—how is everyone's summer coming along? What sort of things have you been up to so far? I hope you're all having a great time and enjoying the sun. Thus far, my summer has been fantastic—lots of swimming, fishing, hiking, motorcycle riding, starry nights and watermelon, haha.

I'm making this journal for those of you who have followed my horror story 'Hipshot' (and anyone who'd like to start following it). After putting the project on hold for several months, I have revised the first four parts (and oh man, what an improvement, seriously), and updated them today, in preparation for the release of the fourth part of the story tomorrow evening.  If you've read Hipshot before and plan on reading the 4th section, I think you'll enjoy it much better if you re-read the story beforehand, now that it's been revised, and refresh it in your memory. Check back tomorrow evening for the fourth installment!

For those who are interested in joining the Hipshot party, you can find the story by clicking the title below:


A Horror Story

To all of you who have read, or are currently reading Hipshot—thank you so much. Your support means a lot to me and has helped to keep this project alive. I hope that you continue to enjoy and feel something from this story as it progresses, and remember: "Courage isn't being fearless—it's being terrified, and still carrying on."


Love you all! Happy Friday the 13th! :>
♥Jen

In a nutshell, 'Hipshot' is about a young woman named Maria, who finds herself trapped in a terrible, distorted other-world, and meets a strange boy who is caught there as well. They plan to make it out together, but as they journey deeper, they realize that their attempt at escape could mean losing everything.

If you choose to read it, I hope you enjoy!

:hooray: Oh, yay! I miss Hipshot, and I'll definitely be rereading it tonight. You've done an excellent job on this story so far. :D

I'm glad your summer has been so nice! :la: Mine has been beautiful as well. Lots of wonderful people, indeed watermelon, and many other things that I can't remember because I'm tired. :T

Ah man, thanks so much! I appreciate the compliment and I'm glad you've enjoyed the story. :)

I'm happy you've had a great summer! Oh man, watermelon is pretty much the only thing you need to keep me happy. It's basically all I've eaten this summer and I'm amazed I'm not sick as a dog, hahaha.

I saw this journal title and was like "oh please let this be more Hipshot". I about screamed when I realized that yes there is going to be MORE HIPSHOT and not only that but you've revised that rest of the story too!!! I'M SO EXCITED. I can't explain how many feelings that story gives me

and is it wrong that I have kind of a crush on Hipshot...I don't care if it's wrong I'm going to keep on loving him

My summer has been amazing so far! I just got back from a week of camping and it was so fun :)

Glad to hear your summer has been great! Camping is the greatest thing ever; I am envious of you. :>
