hi Rogue!! Thank you for updating the soloist!! it is such a beautiful story and I was wondering since you teach sex ed, have you ever actually had to deal with or counsel someone who has had the kind of problem that kurt has had (dont want to spoil it for anyone!!) before? because its very well written and just seems to ring true.
My pleasure! As I’ve been telling a few others, I definitely wish I had more time to write than I do, but this January I’m going to crunch down and finish Chapter XII, since you guys were all so wonderfully patient for the last one.
I appreciate you avoiding the spoiler! I have not had to deal with it directly as a sex ed teacher, no, but in training I read countless articles and interviews about/with people who have been through that sort of thing, and what it does to them, emotionally. The subject is obviously delicate, so I really did a lot of research before and during the laying out of the idea and the actual writing.
So far, the response has been nothing but supportive, so I’m very happy that all of you are happy with the way it’s being tackled. (I’ve gotten so many lovely PMs in response to Chapter XI, and will definitely be responding to those soon!)
Thank you for reading, and for the support!
