Welcoming All Of My Newest Followers To The Blog

spread my wingsThe sky is calm
The stars are bright.
What’s better than to be in flight?
I’ll relax my mind
And be at ease….
And let this journey
Set me free
Set me free

I’ll Spread my wings
And fly away

To a place that I long for.
And my heart will be the pathway.
I’m searching for a love
That’s evermore…
(Troop–Spread My Wings)

You know, I had hoped… I had really hoped that people would want to follow me when I left that “other” site. I posted my little notices and sassy chapter and then I waited.

I didn’t have to wait long.

Holy shit on a stick, Man! It was insane! Utterly amazing! A lot of work, but amazing! It was so, so, so, so much more than I had hoped! Hundreds! Hundreds, I say! And they are still coming. I am more pleased than I can ever say. The outpouring of support was and still is astounding and I thank you all very much.

Now we’re over here in the new digs. I want to welcome you all to the Butterfly Saga and thank you from the bottom of my heart for following me. Go over there to your left and click those links to find stories and other stuff. “The Journey Of Miles” is the new backstory for the male character in the rewrite. This is like a free prologue into the new Book I, so make sure that you read all six parts and the discussions if you haven’t already. It’s graphic and sensitive, so get ready for it.

Most of you already know what “Paging Dr. Steele” and “Mending Dr. Steele” are. For those of you who don’t, make sure that you read “Paging Dr. Steele” first.

“BG’s World” is where you are going to hear about things going on in my life, publishing, and anything else that I feel is vital information, so make sure that you click that link from time to time.

I may get creative for no reason in particular. If that happens, I will have another link up there for that. It will be called something like “BG’s Other Talents.”

I have had sooooooooooooooooo many people ask me why—after being dubbed the Queen of Zing—would I “allow” trolls and haters to chase me away. Most of you were very understanding, but some people were (justifiably) confused as to why I would leave when I had been so verbal with the haters in the past while others just begged me to stay. The answer is simple—and hopefully, this will explain it all:

They are taking the fun away from it for me and they are messing with the way I create.

You can ignore a lot, but after a while, you have to pay attention, whether you want to or not. I’m putting my heart and soul into a work—a product, a story—that takes up every single second of my free time, only to have someone come over to my corner of the Internet and talk shit. True, the site wasn’t mine (like this is my blog), but the area (story) is mine and they were free to leave. Yet, people went out of their way to say horrible things to me instead of just leaving if they hated the story…

How in the world are you going to come over on my porch to where I am talking and then tell me that I need to shut up because no one wants to hear what I have to say? There’s a simple solution to that—get the fuck off my porch! I just got tired of trying to tell people that you can’t just say anything to anybody and not expect them to retort. Then they threw my retorts up to my face:

You’re always cursing someone out.
You’re always zinging someone.

When you publish, you can’t talk to people like that!

Let’s get something straight. There’s not a critic in the world that is going to say to me some of the crazy shit they say to me on that site! They can be as brutal and horrific as their profession will allow and it still won’t be as bad as some of the stuff that has been said to me on a FREE SITE! I already know that when I publish, I have to adjust to my audience and my forum. For God’s sake, I’m not stupid, but I’m taking vicious, personal, horrendous verbal lashings that I’m not even being paid to take!

When you are being paid, you expect to take an insult or three or a thousand, but when you are on a free site doing free creative writing, you don’t expect to be shackled to the wall and verbally beaten with a horse whip. That shit is in the story—I don’t expect it to happen in real life!

This is what I was getting—people throwing horrible comments at me, I defend myself, and then people throwing even more horrible comments at me because I was defending myself. I was never going to get out of that hole—that vicious cycle that had me walking deeper and deeper into the dirt—so it’s just time to leave. I really don’t want to leave, because I have great followers and more and more followers come every day, and I fear that no matter how many people follow me, someone is going to be left behind. However, I’ve heard of suffering for my art, but this has become quite ridiculous!

Then there are the people who are like “Let it roll off of you; don’t let it get to you.” I truly know that you mean well, and I appreciate it—I really do. However, you must know that I have ignored many more comments than I have zinged… many, many more. Don’t get it twisted—when something “rolls off of you,” you still feel that roll. The lightest thing can roll off of you or brush your arm and you’ll turn your head to see what it was. After a while, the “rolling off” became like Chinese water torture…

drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip… drip…

It doesn’t really bother you the first few drips or the first few minutes, but after a few hours, you want out of that shit. After a few days, you’re going insane. After a few weeks, you’re begging someone to kill you… that is, assuming you can still speak.

Try doing it for a year.

It’s just time. No more water torture for me.

So for those people who are begging me not to leave that other site, I really appreciate it…I really, really do, but I have to get the hell up out of there. Even though I curse a lot and write hot sex stories full of taboo acts and fornication, I am still very spiritual (notice, I didn’t say “religious”). There is a story in the Bible about Lot and his family and a place called Sodom and Gomorrah. God told Lot to leave Sodom and Gomorrah, and not to look back because the people were so corrupt that He was going to destroy it. Lot took his family and left. As they were fleeing through the hills, Lot’s wife looked back… and God turned her into a pillar of salt.

The moral of the story—leave a bad situation when of the signs tell you that it’s time to go, and don’t look back. Lot left Sodom and Gomorrah, and the only person that looked back is still standing on the hill today.jebel-usdum-lots-wife-pillar-of-salt

Love and handcuffs,
BG Holmes (Lynn aka Bronze Goddess)

PS—my ID will still be there, because I have other stories that I read. I may leave one chapter of each story so that people will know where to find me…I haven’t decided yet. But very soon, I will no longer be updating over there. Spread the word that I am spreading my wings. ;-)

    I originally stumbled on your blog & read Miles Journey. Then I went to fanfiction & found Paging Dr Steele & Mending Dr Steele cause I wanted to read them before your book came out. I’m addicted. I read Paging Dr Steele straight through & would get so irate reading your author note at stuff people had said to you & didn’t even have the guts to sign in. I didn’t know I could still leave a review if there were already chapters after so I didn’t until I caught up.
    I have 3 good friends hooked with me now & we discuss the chapters after we read them. We’re all looking forward to your book as well. Sorry this is long & may not make a lot of sense.

    • Sheri, how wonderful! Thank you so much. Don’t apologize, I love reading comments from you guys no matter how long and it makes perfect sense! <3

      • Sheila says:

        MS. BG, so divine…I would say that was a message telling you to leave IT ALL up until “the powers that be” cast you aside. Ignore the comments when needed… I get it, you know what may come,…but relish the love, gratitude, & appreciation, and know that dealing with any negative that tries to show itself brings you ten-fold positive in return :) !

      • Hmmm, we’ll see… ;-)

    Let me just say that I’m only fifteen but I loved the fsog trilogy. Why, because I fell in love with the back story of their relationship. Even though the Ana in the story just got on my nerves. No one is that innocent. Anyway Ioved your stories and how you put up with those people who commented on how they didn’t like your story. If they didn’t like it they could’ve stop reading but that is the world they judge anything. So I think you a lot of strength to do what you do still. So I applaud you. Can’t wait for the rest of the story.

    Like I said before, those of us that love your stories will follow. No matter what. :)

    Assholes nowadays I swear. If people cant handle you at your worst, they don’t deserve you at your best. These bitches have to stop complaining. Hopefully there won’t be so many immature brats in this site. Stay you. I love your stories, your zinging, and your personality overall. The haters can suck a big ass dildo and stick it up their ass. They should know that you are here to stay and put on their big kids panties. Love you Bronze!

  8. Kathi says:

    Your stories are amazing I have read and reread them over and over I truely don’t understand people if you don’t like the story or it’s content don’t read it no one was forcing them to read it geez! I’m so glad that you are continuing your stories on you blog and that I found it I would be devastated if I wouldn’t be able to read them. I’m anxiously waiting the next installment of mending Dr Steele! :)
