Way back in January of 2006, I posted the first few parts of my WIP – Parts Unknown only on my site and nowhere else as I didn’t really know what I was going to do with it. Shortly afterwards, I took it down and wrote nothing new on it for years. I tried to reboot my muse about six years ago, and actually did add a little more to it, but it wasn’t until now, 14 years later (Yikes!), that my extremely fussy muse and I decided that we should probably finish the darn thing…so we finally did.;)
When I originally thought of the concept for this story, I started with the image of Mulder on a motorcycle, then came up with a reason for WHY he might be on a motorcycle. All those years ago, I was also into creating dustcovers for a lot of my stories, and an idea for that came to me easily. If only the words had come to me as easily as those ideas did! <g>
Anyway…although the story itself is technically finished, the extra tweaks and formatting is not. Therefore, I will be posting 1-2 parts a day until it’s done as I fix some of those nudgy words and sentences that might not quite sound right. Currently the story is 10 parts, and it is my goal to have all of it posted within ten days or less.
I can’t begin to tell you how relieved and excited I am to have finally finished something I started to write so long ago. Back during the heyday of the X-Files when I was constantly inspired and writing like crazy, I used to love the rush I’d get whenever I finished and posted a new story, especially if it was one I’d been working on for a long time, and it feels great to experience that rush again. It also feels great to simply spend some time with Mulder and Scully again. I’ve missed them.:)
