I may be way out of touch here but it seems that it has been forever since we have had any story entries from cannon authors such JG, Elrod(Kayda) and some of the others. Is there something I have missed, or have these writers gone AWAL ?

I have enjoyed quite a few of the New Cannon Aurthors such as Morpheus and a couple of others. I would appreciate any knowledge any update/help in this.

Thank you

It's a tough situation, really. One of the best encouragements for getting the authors to write is for people to be reading their stories and commenting, talking about, and looking forward to more. But its far easier and faster to read stories than it is to write them. And readers who aren't getting enough new material to read will wander among various places to acquire that new material. In doing so, they split up their attention among various web sites and leave individual authors feeling less appreciated. Numbers of feedback and praise drop, the story read/hit counters accumulate slower, and authors begin to feel like they're doing something wrong... that no one likes their stories anymore. A quick burst of endorphins when they release something new no longer holds them over through the long working stages of preparing the next bit.

So I am taking from your response Kristin is that they have just stopped writing. I know both of the authors that I mentioned got quite a bit of feedback on their stories. I have read or at least I think I have read something that a few of those original cannon authors were writing but some of the others werent or werent writing I guess the term would be fast enough or keeping up wiht the story plots so the stories have come to a true slow down. I thought one of the reasons why the site organizers were looking for new cannon authors were that they would looking for authors to take over some of those characters maybe bring a couple of new characters with them as well but not just have the original characters just get dropped. Some of these new authors are very good and I mentioned Morpheus in my first post as I truly believe he is a pure talent. But JG and outcast corner, Elrod and Kayda(with her cast of assemble) and Team Kimba are the bread and butter of this site. I hope I am not being told that Those authors are no longer writing? Is that the case?

The good news is that we do have a story from JG coming soon as announced in this thread New Outcast Story and we recently got a new story from Branwen who used to write under the Dr Bender name previously. Dissonance (Part 1)

As well, I've seen no less than 3 older authors working away at stories recently so you WILL still see more out of our older authors... It's just been taking some time.

And while we do have agreements with some of the newer authors to keep their characters an active part of the universe if for some reason they (they authors) go inactive. But with many of the older authors/characters, that agreement wasn't in place. So while we can cameo them or maybe do some 'minor' bits with them in supporting roles; we are limited in how much we can do without breaking our early copyright agreements. One of many things that makes a long running shared universe complicated.

I'm currently working on a non-Whateley serial story that has been taking a bit longer than expected. Once I'm done with my current project, I'll be back.
