The announcements below are listed in reverse
with the most recent announcements given first.
August 20, 2012 from Susan.
Yeah, yeah, I know I've been AWOL
for a long time, but I kinda have a good excuse. A
year after my significant other died, I lost my job,
then I lost my home, had to move into a really bad
place, but after two years of unemployment and the
darkest depression I've ever experienced, I finally
found a job and was able to get back on my feet
again. Nearly three years later, I'm slowly
rebuilding my life again. Things are not perfect,
but there are many things and people in my life now
that I am thankful for.
So, with the TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY of
the Mystic Muse approaching (can you fucking believe
it's been TEN FUCKING YEARS?) I figured it was time
to jump back in and get things jump started to show
that this site is not going anywhere. In fact, I'll
probably be expanding it to include other fandoms.
So stay tuned for some excited things coming to the
By the way, about five or six years
ago, I added a counter to the bottom of the landing
page and no one has EVER asked me what it's for.
Does anyone out there have a clue as to what it's
counting down? A virtual cookie for the first to
send me an email
with a correct guess.
ALMOST TO SUMMER VACATION!
May 10, 2011 from DragonWriter17, Site Administrator
I'm almost done with school--just a few days left in the semester. Once I turn in grades on Friday, I'll officially be on summer vacation. That means I'll finally be able to catch up on updating the site. Thanks for your patience!
SORRY FOR THE DELAY IN UPDATING
April 17, 2011 from DragonWriter17, Site Administrator
I just wanted to apologize for the delay in updating. I've hit a super busy point in my work schedule, and I'm afraid it's not going to slow down for another month. Please bear with me. I will return and will get back to posting and updating very soon, I promise!
CODING HELP FROM WISPR
March 10, 2011 from DragonWriter17, Site Administrator
I just wanted to say thank you to Wispr for helping me with some of the HTML coding for the story posting here on Mystic Muse. It's been a great help! Many thanks!
February 5, 2011 from DragonWriter17, Site Administrator
I have gotten reports of eBook links not working or not importing properly. I don't have any experience with converting documents to eBook format, so at the moment, I can't address that problem. However, I will work on learning how to do the eBook conversions and will let you know when I've gotten a handle on it. In the meantime, if there is a certain story that you are just dying to have in eBook format, email me and let me know which story (give author's pen name and story title). Tell me what eBook format you want it in and tell me what kind of eReader you are using (Kindle, Nook, Sony, etc.) I will do my best to get the story converted for you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FICTION BY AUTHOR PAGE UPDATED
January 25, 2011 from DragonWriter17, Site Administrator
I have updated the Fiction By Author page. Please check to see if your author name is spelled, spaced, and capitalized correctly and if the link to your main story page works. If you find errors or need anything corrected, please let me know. Email me at email@example.com.
NOW ACCEPTING NEW AUTHORS AND NEW SUBMISSIONS
January 23, 2011 from DragonWriter17, Site Administrator
I am now accepting new updates, new story submissions, and new authors. So bring 'em on! Please follow the Submission guidelines and the Hints for Authors; these pages have been revised. I look forward to hearing from you.
I'VE STARTED UPDATING STORIES
August 3, 2010 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
I've finally begun making story updates to the site. I've got a few more to do, and then I'll be caught up on what was sent to me by current authors during the transition period. After that, I'll post an announcement that I'm ready to receive any other updates. I haven't started making other corrections yet, though. I know some of you pointed out problems on other pages, such as the Contact Us page. I'll get to those as soon as I can. Thanks for your patience!
I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT MUSE, I PROMISE!
April 25, 2010 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
Sorry for the delay on updates. My real-life job is taking up all of my time, but summer vacation is almost here. I'll be able to get caught on the fun fan fic stuff very soon. Stay tuned!
THANKS FOR REPLIES & UPDATES COMING SOON!
January 4, 2010 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
Thanks to those of you who have
replied to the bulk email about your stories on
Muse. If you have stories on Muse but did not
receive a bulk email from me about checking your
stories, just email me here at my Muse address:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me if your
stories are up to date or not and what email address
you want to use for this site. If you have new
chapters or stories that aren't on the site that you
want on the site, send them to the same address.
BULK EMAIL SOON TO COME!
November 29, 2009 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
Lilly has finished compiling the email list for me, and I'm about to send out that bulk email I mentioned in the previous announcement. I'll be asking you to double-check your stories and see what you need to send me. I'll begin accepting submissions/resubmissions from current authors on January 1, 2010.
UPDATING EMAIL ADDRESSES OF AUTHORS
October 17, 2009 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
With Lilly's help, I'm in the process of compiling an up-to-date email list of all authors who have stories posted on this site. As soon as I have it ready, I'll send out a bulk email and request replies to verify email addresses. In the meantime, if you're an author and you see this announcement, you can go ahead and send an email to my Mystic Muse address (email@example.com) and tell me the email address that you want to use for Mystic Muse communications. There are quite a few email addresses that I'm sure are no longer valid in my list.
Please don't send me any story updates yet, though. I've still got a lot of things to do before I'll be ready for that.
NEW EMAIL ADDRESS FOR SITE ADMINISTRATOR
October 16, 2009 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
I've set up a Mystic Muse email address for myself. It's firstname.lastname@example.org (easy one to remember). If you have questions or comments or suggestions about the Mystic Muse site, please send them to this address.
Please don't send me any story updates yet, though. I need to get a few more things squared away before I can start accepting updates.
I've been tinkering with the site, making sure that I know how to update. I've updated all of my stories to get the posts here in synch with what I have on my personal site. I think everything turned okay--maybe not perfect, but it'll do for now. I haven't updated most of the pages with my new website address (since geocities was killed by Yahoo), but I'll get around to that eventually.
October 6, 2009 from DragonWriter17, Temporary Site Administrator
Hey everybody...DragonWriter17 here. Sorry for the down time. Susan's been ill and unable to care for the site. I've gotten the website reinstated, but I won't be able to take any updates right away. I've got to figure out how this website works first. I'll do my best to get it up and running--updates and all--as soon as I can. When Susan's feeling better, I'll hand the reins back over to her.
