Just a heads up

So you guys know what to expect, my next post is going to be The Gap - Part III.

This of course, means that those of you who haven't, need to go read The Gap - Part I and The Gap - Part II. Those of you who have, need to go refresh your memory. And those of you who spend your days trolling back and forth in my archives (read my imaginary friends and I), well, chances are you've seen it already, but I was never much of a gambling man, so...

Anyway, will be on real soon.

Seeya then.

Ciao.

In other news- I collect currencies too! And stamps! Holla, geek central!

Love,
LM

Jhayu said...

@ V-V = LM.
Hahaha... Welcome!

And just so you know, you belong here... A lot of geeks come around these here parts.

Also, I collect currencies, too. = P

'tis a shame, though, that your blogger blog is inaccesible =(

Preeti said...

well i've not yet read gap 1 and gap 2...

but i will do so and come back...

Jhayu said...

@Preeti.
You do that. =P

Che said...

You really want me to read them dont you?

Jhayu said...

@ Lady bastard.
As you may find surprising, I'd live if you didn't.

yash said...

*bated breath*

Jhayu said...

@ Chusks.
Dude, don't do that! Pressure and all happening!!!

Preeti said...

i'm impressed jhayu...seriously.
and also slightly confused. maybe if 3 comes out clarity might set in so i wont ask you questions right now.

Gap 1 was 23 April and Gap 2 was 12June... hmmmnnn

you know in gap 1 it is obvious that you are just starting off because the teething problems were quite apparent (maybe you were preoccupied with your exams)... you were treading carefully and at times hesitating too...

but in gap 2 you totally began bang on...in this one your structuring seems more sure and crisp and mature...the character suddenly seems to be alive...

loved what you've written and the way you've written...i wonder what you are coming up with in 3...hmmnnnn

Jhayu said...

@ Preeti.
= S
Damn! Now I'm even more terrified of putting up 3. Waaah!!! The thing with the series is, I know how it's going to end, I just don't know how they get there.

See, when I write stuff like that, it's not so much me writing as the characters making me write. So I have to wait till they show me where they want to go. I guess that also explains the time delay...

Let's hope 3 meets the high standards that are being expected.

Waaaaaaaaaaaah!!!! = S

Preeti said...

hmmmnnn...interesting...

i liked the idea of characters
narrating the story to you and you being just the documentor.

you know something. i get a feeling that it would be better than 2. because you seem to be getting better as you write each one.

its october now and the last one was in june right...? im totally sure its going to be good because now you have your work experience pitched in.

and you have grown older...so what if you're just 21. you are not 20 anymore right...?

if i were you i would absorb all the expectations and write a mother of all piece and then bask in the glory of praise.

Jhayu said...

@ Preeti.
That's how it happens with me, I swear.

And you make it sound so easy... =P

Preeti said...

hmmnnn...

you are very very lucky then...exploit the gift jhayu..

go for it with a vengeance and you'll see that it is easier than i make it sound...
i swear!!!
:-P

copy rioter said...

$@^#&^*&^ why the fuck do I have to read those old posts....why can't you give 2-line summary and gift-please your ardent devotees (I mean your imaginary friends).

Jhayu said...

@ The Punguin.
Bad day, huh? It's cool... You don't *have* to.

= ) Problem solved!

Jhayu said...

@ Preeti.
You see, it is both a gift and a curse. It is a gift in that they give me good stories (I hope). It is also a curse, because I am at their whims and fancies. For instance, there is this one series on this blog called Untitled, which started, then disappeared again. And I've heard nothing from it since...

So it kinda cuts both ways...

And, yeah, the attempt is on. = )

Still thinking said...

I had to first make sure you weren't talking about the clothing line and so I clicked GAP 1 :D

Hmmmmm, I read both the parts Jhayu and I can only say I really want to read part 3 soon...I wanna see how you take it further. The 2nd part was very vivid. Write dear and for the time being I'll go and mull over the characters a bit more... (read that as a compliment as the story continues to stay w/ me as I leave this blog :))

Preeti said...

hmmnnn...well

forget the curse part...or at least try to...

hmmnn... things once begun and then disappearing is not a good sign...it basically attributes to an inconsistency...dont you think...? you havent heard from it because you've blocked it yourself.

oh i am sure you are going to win...arrey you are a superstar, yaar..

hi still!!! :-)

Jhayu said...

@ Still.
You thought I'd be talking about branded clothes? damn. My reputation is shot.

*kills self*

*rises again*

(thankis for the compliments!)

*kills self again*

@ Preeti.
Good advice. Let's see what we can do about it!

Preeti said...

:-)

tch....

Jhayu said...

@ Preeti.
= P

Still thinking said...

Why wouldn't you be talking about it, infact you're the perfect model the brand could ever have? ;)

Rise dear, you've so many more ppl to make happy in the so so mannnnnny coming years before you call for the line 'dust thou art and to dust thou shall return' :D

Hi Preeti, howdy? :)

Jhayu said...

@ Still.
*gasps*

*dies a horrible spasmodic death*

Do you know how few GAP models actually make people happy??? =S

Waaaaaaaaah!!!!

Aries said...

Man..I look fwd to it. I think I can count on you to avoid like the plague any references to "stock markets", "bears" and 'pe ratios languishing below 10x 09 earnings'.

Labia said...

Vulgar Vulva was a different type of an indulgence. I was mostly raving about my vagina and it's consequential hook-ups (back when I used to get some). The posts there would also suffer from vomitious comma abuse. I don't blog there anymore, so you're not missing anything.

Just to make you happy, I can always discuss my vaginal secretions in flair on the Labia Majora one.

Thanks for adding me to your blog roll. ;)

Kisses.

Preeti said...

this doesnt mean that you dont write other posts till you write Gap 3 understand, boy....

Trinaa said...

whoooaa...first time here n m definitely not disappointed! waiting 4 d 3rd part.. :)

Jhayu said...

@ Aries.
I haven't the faintest clue what you just said, but yeah, that.

@ VV=LM
Yeah, I think I heard tell of that on the LM one, too.

And I don't do nothing about that! Good blogs just somehow find their way up there! =P

@ Preeti.
Yes, my maiden. It's just that when I write something like the Gap, it creates an emotional setting in which it is difficult for me to write much else.

@ Trinaa.
Welcome! And thanks!

And damn. More pressure. =S Waaaaaaaaaah!!!!

Preeti said...

ohhh...
ok..then i guess i should let you hmmnn...take your time. and this means that no posts till then, right...?


me not likes that
:-(

Trinaa said...

sooowwyy..but ache writer k tag k saath pressure cums ekdum muft! :P

Menaka said...

Put It Up already!!!

Tazeen said...

you secretly working for GAP???

Jhayu said...

@ Trinaa.
= P Thankis. And it's easy for you to just say it, I have to deal with the insecurity... =P

@ Men a.k.a. Warrior.
Hold on to your horses. I can't churn them out like you seem to be doing now.

@ Tazeen.
That's it. My reputation is officially shot. Maybe I should start blogging about fashion tips. =P

Over Rated said...

"Reputation" .... you mean you had one?

Maybe I missed the memo ...

But, really, good stuff with the stories ....
